Check the name tag. The voltage and amperage are both listed there. It sounds aa though it draws too much for you (probably 15 amp) circuit. Have an electrician install a heavier amperage circuit, or return the miter saw and find one that draws a lower amperage.

I have a Malita dual sliding compound miter saw LS1016LX. Trigger will not start saw after 5-10 cuts. When saw sits for 30 minutes, it runs again.


I'd contact a Makita dealer. I've had this saw for years without a single misfire on the trigger. Could be heat related, but that's a stretch. Here's their contact information:

The only way to turn the saw off is to unplug it. Ryobi 10 inch sliding compound miter saw model TSS100L


You may be able to take the handle apart and, using compressed air, blow any sawdust out of the handle and switch but most likely you'll have to replace the switch.

Mitre saw running, but not switched on?


there should be no power going anywhere until you pull on the trigger. With that in mind I would be looking at the switch for the fault

My 10" Bosch miter saw


I would remove the blade and try the saw again, there is a possibility that you might have gotten a flange on incorrectly or left the spacer out.

Saw runs continuously


The on off switch has a contact that has probably fused together from making and breaking causing an arc. You may try giving it a good 'wrap' with the back of a screw driver to free it, or replace the switch.

Miter saw motor is running back wards


I'd say it was the new wiring that was reversed. Motors cant really start reversing themselves on their own and the only other way it would seem reversed is if the blade was put on backwards...

So yes I think you have the wires reversed when you re-wired the cord.
