Question about Makita Saws
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.

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.
