SOURCE: makita table saw switch wiring

K, from what I can remember there is nothing special about the switch, however the brake works off the armature and brushes and dirty or worn brushes will affect it. I just looked at a breakdown and there is no wiring schematic on it and I did not see any electronic module for the break. You can take the brushes out (unplug tool first) and blow the area out with compressed air. Look at the brush spring for discoloration and condition and length of brush. Makita does have a good website and also a toll free number for tech support. Their site is Makitatools.com and click on the table products and then type in your saw number. Let me know if you still have a problem and I will contact a local Makita center to get more info. Good luck

SOURCE: makita table saw switch wiring

After much trial and error, a little smoke, and wrecking one replacement switch, I solved a similar problem with my Craftsman Cmpd Mitre saw. Different saw, but likely the same principles are involved.
If the switch is a double pole single throw switch, with one side normally open (N0) and the other normally closed (NC), and the saw has a separate wire for the brake, this will probably work.

One side of the switch should have contacts that are normally open (NO) and only connect when the switch is ON. The Hot (Black) wire from the plug connects to the wire on the machine side (red or maybe black) through this NO side. So, connect these two wires via this NO side and the saw will run when the switch is ON but will have no brake; so far so good.
There should be another wire (Not the neutral white) which is the brake wire. This gets connected to one of the connection sites of the Normally Closed (NC) side of the switch. From the other connection site of this NC side run a short "jumper" wire (of the same guage as the other wires) to the Machine Side of the NO side of the switch (same place as that Red or Black? wire above) .
What seems to happen is this:
There's no power to the machine or the brake when the switch is OFF. Turn it ON and power goes from Hot through the NO (now closed) side and the saw runs. The brake doesn't run when the saw runs because the NC switch is now open. Turn the switch OFF and the NC switch is in fact closed and power is transfered to the brake via the jumper wire from the still spinning armature which now acts as a generator (alternator?). Once the brake has done its job and the armature stops spinning there's no power anywhere until you turn the switch ON again.
Or at least that's the theory, and in my case it works; no more smoke.

SOURCE: Makita 2704 I overloaded my motor

if the motor RPM drops dramatically when the noise starts, it is probably a dry motor bushing, if this just started, lubricating the motor may just fix it.

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.

My 2704 is blowing fuses, there is no fault on the lead

You may have a motor winding lead that has touched the case of the motor, shorting out the windings, drawing too much amperage, thus blowing fuses. You may have to disassemble your motor and check the stator windings for a short as well as the armature windings. Also the motor could be hanging up due to bearing trouble and causing the motor to draw too much amperage. Probably the cheapest thing to do would be to replace the motor.

My 2704 bench saw has packed up. thought it was the brushes, fitted new ones. it spins up but lot of blue sparks comming out of the motor. It has done a lot of work, is it best to fit a new motor or can i...

before you replace it, you can try and clean the commutator. To do this first unplug the tool and turn the saw on its backside. remove the brushes and find a emory board (cardboard) while turning the blade by hand (use a glove) lightly touch the board to the commutator to try and clean the surface, While doing this try and notice any raised sections of the comm, if there are any then you would need a new armature and possibly field. I would try cleaning first though. Let me know if you have any more questions.

My makita 2704 table saw stopped working while cutting a 4"x2" piece of timber the motor was a little hot so left it too cool an now when i try to start it up it fires up for a second or two then...

there are no capacitators that I see. What I would do is unplug the tool and remove the brushes and check there condition for burning/wear and if you can look into the brush tube and carefully turn the motor by hand and look at the commutator for discoloration. Let me know if you need more help. You can download a breakdown at "makitausa.com"

Electric brake doesnt work unless off switch hit really hard.doesnt switch on sometimes

sounds like a faulty switch. before removing write yourself or take a photo of where the wires go. Also check the condition of the brushes, if they are too short the brake won't work either.
