Question about Bosch 12" Dual - Bevel Compound Miter Saw with Upfront Controls and Laser Tracking 4212L

1 Answer

My craftsman 10 inch compound miter will not start. I checked cords and plugins and made sure a fuse had not blown. I checked the brushes and they both have more than 1/4 inch of carbon left. Could it be the limit switch did the motor just die ?

Are you plugged into a GFI receptacle? If so maybe you have to reset the GFI. I would also check for loose wires on the switch or plug and make sure your cord is good.

My brand new DW718 Double bevel sliding compound miter saw won't turn on

The only thing to do is go through the machines electrics bit by bit untill you find out the problem. First check the plug wiring (and fuse if 240V), then check the continuity from the plug terminals to the switch terminals to determine if the cable is ok. Always worth just popping the brush overs off and making sure the brushes aren't sticking. Any further than that and you should really have it checked by a professional. It should be covered by a twelve month warranty, and if there is a definate problem I know as a UK service agent we are instructed to just exchange the machine within thirty days of purchase/delivery (subject to workshop examination).
