Replaced the muffler on my Makita concrete saw and now it wont start.

check to make sure you didn't accidentally plug up the exhaust port, or pull a wire lose. I don't think it can be anything else, IF it was running well before you did anything. How long has it been sitting? old gas can gum up carbs and or injectors. IF it was running and replacing the muffler made it not run, all it can be is a plugged exhaust, or a wire erroneously pulled loose.

Makita tablesaw 2704 won't start

It could be a multitude of things. It could possibly be the switch is bad. Do you have power at the outlet. Check for a break in the cord. A wire may have come loose anywhere in the saw itself. Did you check the brushes. That's about all I can think of except for a bad motor. You can smell that. Just take a good whiff.

Red light is on how do i fix it on my makita grinder

Replace the brushes. There is a wear plate built into the brush that tells the controller they are getting low. If you post the model # I can get you the part number you will need.

Makita DCS 540. When you pull the cord it is very hard to pull. It only comes out a few inches. Not enough to start it.

Hi, you might find the cord was broken, and "someone" left it short. remove the pull start unit, look at length of the cord, (take pictures for replacment, noteing direction of cable etc )I guess it should be about one meter long, or spool should be nearly full of cable.Hope this helps you.

Makita concrete saw dpc7321 won't start has fuel

I'm a retired engineer and work PT as a tool tech for an HD rental ctr.

Compression on a new cylinder/piston is 160 psi. When it drops into the 130~140 psi range the saw becomes hard to start. Below 130 the saw will not run properly and at 90 they are toast. This is mainly due to improper fuel/oil mix (must be one bottle of 50:1 synthetic oil per gallon of regular gas. I use 6 bottles to 5 gallons for addition protection). Because this type of tool works in extremely harsh conditions (concrete dust) it is also imperative to keep the air filters clean. Wash the foam pre-filter after each use with plain water from a garden hose and discard after operating 6 times. Toss away (change with new) the paper filter if dust is present or when changing the pre-filter. Also check the carb hose to the cylinder inlet for cracks. My cost to get a cylinder/piston from Makita runs app. $130. When looking into the cylinder, streaks on the exhaust side indicate improper fuel/oil mix. Streaks on the intake indicate dirty air intrusion.

Good Luck.

I have a Makita LS1011 10" sliding miter the carriage will not raise and lower easily very hard lifting it up or down what can i do to fix this

This is usually caused by the linkage that operates the guard assembly. Check to make sure it operates freely Makita LS1011 Parts List and Diagram eReplacementParts com Reference #62 and the bushing that rides inside it #55 The link usually wears out and the bushing hangs up making the saw difficult to raise and lower.

My makita jig saw hops while cutting perspex what could be the problem

Check that you've installed the right blades. There are blades that cut on the upward stroke and on the downward stroke. Downward cut blades will kick like crazy. Also make sure the perspex is supported as best as possible to stop it from trying to flex with the stroke of the jigsaw.
