You should really take it back to place of purchase and get it replaced/fixed under waranty. If you try anything other than checking the fuse you will invalidate the warranty. Most manufacturers allow retailers to replace faulty tools within seven days of purchase. Be sure to take your receipt with you as a copy will be needed for the shops warranty claim.

It sounds like the bearing in thee bottom plate is seizing. If you turn the pad by hand does the motor turn. It should be smooth. I would look at that. The bearing number for Makita is 211236-8 or if you can get a generic bearing it is 6002DDW. Let me know

The armature windings have an overlay problem in the wiring causing this and there is no soluation except to replace the armature which is not cost efective unless you are still under Warrantee and get a free replacement, it will burn up at some point. If you bought it within the last month take it back and get a new one, over one month, pack it back up in the original box and send it to address in the owners manual for repair or replacement service addresses.
