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.

SOURCE: How do I wire up a switch on a 110 volt mlt100 makita tablesaw

You can still find inline switch for cords, but make sure they can handle the amperage. A 15A rating should be fine. Don't use a lamp-cord switch, because they are usually rated for much lower current.
Some people go to the trouble of mounting an electrical junction box on their machine and routing the cord through it with a light switch. Once again, the light switch must have a higher current rating of 10 or 15 amps, depending on the current-draw of your machine.

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.

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.
