I have a Makita circular saw model 5007F. When plugged in the light that you follow lights up but when I pull the switch it will not do anything. I'm wondering if the switch is bad?


Check the brushes for the motor first, make sure they're in good shape, or replace them as they're fairly inexpensive, this is the most common issue, especially if you picked it up second hand, or have been using it for a while. Then, yes, I would try the switch.
Unless to motor is shot, which you might be able to smell it and tell if it's burnt, it's most likely either the brushes, or the switch. Of course, I'm presuming you're using the thumb lock out before you pull the switch ;-) but since you didn't say... and yes, there are some people... :-)

What is the spring for in the 2000w makita circular saw


Other than carbon brush springs, the only other spring that I know of on a circular saw is for the blade guard so that it will automatically return to cover the blade after you make the cut. There should be a hook or a bend in each end of the spring and each end has a certain spot where it hooks so that it pulls the blade guard back in place.

My Makita circular power saw works then stops working, then starts again. Why is this happening?


Things to check: With the saw running, safely grab the cord by the boot and pull and twist it around. This is where a break frequently occurs inside the cord and when the saw is held in certain positions the break will either open or close. If the cord's OK, unplug the saw and remove the brush caps and check the brushes. If the brushes are less than 1/4" long or the springs are burnt or broke they won't make good contact with the armature. If the cord & brushes are OK your next recourse is to replace the switch (Makita PN 651172-0).

Brushes arcing


Brushes arc for several reasons. If the spring over heated and lost its tension or the copper line from the brush to the cap broke/burnt off or the brush wore down too far to be pressed on the armature properly. The replacement brushes you need are Makita part number CB-124. If you still have exessive sparking after replacing the brushes you may have a bad commutator on the armature. The only way to fix that is to replace the armature, Makita part number 512831-0.
