There is only one way that I know of. Unplug tool and lay on its backside to expose the undercarriage of tool, remove the screws holding the switch plate on and remove box

I have a makita 2703 table saw. Saw would not turn on from time tio time, then just would not turn on at all. Just replaced the switch and verified no other wiring issues up to the motor.


First thing I would check are the Carbon Brushes. The are # 75 in the picture

Here are two links for the parts manual and the owners manual. It is not uncommon for a tool to go slightly out of line with use due to vibration and and movement of the arbor. As for the tool not tilting, it just sounds like the worm screw and gear are off line. this is a pretty quick fix but it requires you to turn your saw upside down to access the set screws. I glanced at the diagram and it looks like the handle for the adjustment is held on by a set pin. you will also be able to access this from inside the cabinet.

Table is "humped" 1/16" in middle of table. How can i level my table back down?


Is it the table or the insert that is humped. I have never heard of a table especially in the middle being humped. I would recommend that you call 1-800-4625482 that is the Makita Tech Support line and see what they can come up with versus replacing the table

Bevel locking lever won't tighten


It looks like that handle should be able to pull straight off the end of the shaft once you remove the screw. See this exploded parts view: http://www.makita.com/en-us/Assets/images/Products/_PartsBreakdowns/PB_2703.pdf

My experience with them is that people tend to get frustrated and abandon the lock lever and just run the saw "loose". Scary as it sounds, I've seen it on more than one site.

Anyway, I don't have a fix for you if you can't get the handle off to re-position it.
Makita does have a tech support line if you want to give it a try. Otherwise, you may have to shell out a few bucks to one of their service centers. We used to have a great one in Albuquerque, but it's now defunct. People don't seem to repair tools like they used to...

Good luck, and best wishes...
