Hi Liam,

Sounds like you need to put new brushes in. Here's a website where you can get brushes and a parts breakdown to serve as a guide when taking your saw apart: >>>> http://www.toolpartsdirect.com/cgi-bin/modelsearch.cgi?brand=dewalt&model=dw718 Just copy and paste this web address into your browser and the webpage with 2 options on it will open up. You'll have to look at your label and see which "type" saw you have. Click on your type and go.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Handie Andie, "woodworker by night"

Dewalt DW718 Sparks When cutting . just bought it


The people from Lowes were right.
There are two types of motor designs: Induction motors and brush-type motors.
All electric motors that have brushes make sparks where the brushes contact the rotating commutator. They also run less efficiently but they are a bit smaller than induction motors for equal power output. Brushed motors can also deliver greater power at initial startup.
Because the sparks in brushed motors create heat, the housing around the motors typically have ventilation slots for air to go through to keep the commutator cool. This means you are likely to see the sparks if you look in the right place.
Since it's more difficult to get an induction motor turning, they typically have a "start capacitor" mounted on the side of the motor to give an extra kick to get the stator turning. While induction motors use less power when running, the amperage they use at start-up is typically double the running amperage.

Dewalt miter saw not running at full speed


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.

I lost my manual and need to adjust the bevel settings


Make sure its a compound mitre and not just a mitre saw. The check in the back for a round knob with degrees marks on it, theres your adjuster.

DW705 Miter saw Spark in motor Compartment


Yes spark in motor compartment is normal. You only need to worry if you see a lot of sparks flying out of the motor compartment! Most power tools will spark inside the motor compartment (particularly if carbon brushes are used).

Bevel and miter could be off... Consult your manual for how to adjust these correctly, but usually the bevel has a 0-degree setting screw or adjustment, and the miter adjustment on the saw is usually done by altering the fence position... Again check your manual for specifics on your saw.
