Makita Angle Grinder not working

Our Makita is making a terrible noise, the disc is spinning slower than normal and it gets hot really quickly and smoke is coming out. Just replaced the brushes and it didn't help.

Check inside for any loose connections plus check the brushes. if like you say it is smoking it could be a trip to the wheelie bin for that one.

My makita 4 1/2 grinder has a problem where the motor still turns but the mounting shaft and subsequently the disc does not move. Its not had more than a few weeks work so is almost new.

Inside the head of your grinder there are a couple beveled gears, one on the armature and the other on the spindle that the discs attach to. If either or both gears are broke or worn down to where they don't contact each other properly, the motor will spin but not turn the spindle. It's easy to disassemble the head to check but if the tool is that new you may want to look into getting it repaired under the warranty.

Drill stopped during a day of usage. Motor was getting hot and just started to smoke. I stopped using the drill so it could cool. Two hours later, it makes a buzzing noise, but the drill will not spin. ...

the heat has seized the motor or plastic gears im leaning more towards the motor
disassemble the drill and take a look all the parts pretty much stay in place see if
you can turn the motor by hand if it wont turn use some 3n1 oil on each end of the
motor that shooed do the trick

hope this helps you
good luck

What is the resistor value on a Makita 9029s 230mm grinder, and what is the resistor for?

Resistor? Do you perhaps mean the capasitor that is connected to the supply leads?

If, so this works as an electric noise suppressor. Commonly, it comes in the form of a small yellow square plastic item, with two pins. It is an ac-type capacitor, and the value can be found stamped to on the side. The value is normally given in micro-Farads ( ?F ) or even nano-Farads. The performance of your Makita will not be hurt by a defect capacitor, but it will potentially cause disturbances to tv, radios and may even violate local regulations regarding electric noise. The capacitor can be found as regular spare part from your Makita dealer or any online tool store.

Washer makes a terrible noise when reaches the spin cycle at the end and did not spin well enough to get all of the water out of the clothes. The tub did empty, however. I believe I noticed a hot smell...


It sounds like the spin basket rear support is loose. The support is part of the spin basket & does not come separately. This type of repair will more than likely need the spin basket replaced & possibly the outer tub also. It will cost you $200-300 to replace the assembly.

Hope this helps.

What is meant by a soft start

Soft start means that your grinder will start at a slower speed, then rev up to the normal speed, so the grinder won't "dig" into your work.

Hope that helps.

Makita ga9000 9 inch grinder just stoppe working no burn smell or noise could it be bushes or something more

First check to make sure the outlet you plugged into has power. (You may have tripped a
GFI elsewhere). The next possible problem is either buildup on the brushes and
commutator shaft or in the switch assembly itself. (I have this problem on one of my
grinders due to dust in the switch assembly).
