SOURCE: Metal chop saw blows breaker

Is there anything else running while you are cutting? If not is the breaker 15 amp or 20 amp. If its 15 amp, I would change it to a 20 amp breaker. Make sure the wires are thick enough to handle the extra load. If this isn't the problem check the cord from the saw to the outlet.

Good luck!!

SOURCE: Hi my dewalt 708 lx sliding mitre saw, 110v, seems

I have heard complaints that this saw does not do well on angled cuts because of its low power. Try running a shorter and/or thicker extension cord and checking your input voltage. That's about all I can think of, hope it helps.

Macallister chop saw blade problem, the motor runs but when half way through cutting wood the blade stops ?


I'm not sure if you have a chop saw or circular saw. Either way, it sounds like the nut and washer are not tight enough to hold the blade. If you have a circular saw clockwise will tighten the nut and washer onto the blade and hold it in place. Most chop saws are a left hand thread and then you would turn the nut counter clockwise to hold the blade tighter. The blade wobbles because it is not tight.

The power cord can get a break in it. Try moving it when this happens. Otherwise, the plug can fall out of the outlet. Sometimes the switch goes bad.

Problem will be either low brush lengths or burnt armature. Check for arcing when running and excessive sparking will mean motor over haul or replacement.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

With power off grab both sides of the blade and try to rocking (NOT SPINNING) the blade in opposide directions on each side of the balde. Then while rocking the blade, see if the armature teeters inside the motor.

It it does have excessive movement then the rear motor bearing is probably worn excessively.

I have to ask if this is a 110V cut off saw and your trying to use it on 220V because it will produce the exact symtoms you described.

I also note that you did not mention if you had changed the brushes. Worn brushes or weak brush springs can also cause the symptom you describe.

Hopefully this gives you something to work with.

Thanks for using FixYa!
