I have a Makita LS1013 Dual Slide Compound 10-inch Miter Saw. It was working one minute and next no power!

How did you measure the power at the switch Live to N ? that would rule out a break in the cable all that is left is Armature ,Stator coil and wiring to both.

Can I bypass (hotwire) the controller on my Makita ls1013 Miter saw?

Not a good idea. Miter saw are too dangerous to be altering them in any way.

Some mitre saws have extra windings in the field coil so a possibility is a break in this brake coil another possibility is the switch some have a contact that switches the back emf from the field coil to the brake coil when you release the trigger. And believe or it or not some times changing the brushes affects the braking have seen this a few times on the LS1013.

Makita LS1013 110V feels underpowered. What could have caused this? Brushes are barely worn.

How underpowered? running at half speed? If so check the wiring in the 110v plug. I have seen saws come into the workshop where 1 of the wires is connected to earth pin this results in 55v being fed to saw hence 1/2 speed. Is there heavy arcing at the commutator? if yes armature probably blown. If not still worth examining armature for discolouration, examine field coils at same time if everything seems ok then a possibility is the controller. You could try by passing the controller and if saw seems to run better then you know you need a new controller. It is located at the back of the motor. If you are not sure about electrics do not try this you may electrocute your self or blow the controller.

Hi all I have a Makita LS1013 that I got from a friend. I am trying to repair the switches in the handle as they are blown. I have the replacement parts I need to do the job. However someone seems to have...

gdoran681, The information I sent you should have the wiring you will need. Let me know if you have just the LS1013 or if it has the lights on it (LS1013FL)

You could try blowing some compressed air into the area around the switch and see if it helps.
Otherwise, it's most likely the cord or the switch.
Can you check to see that you actually have power to the switch. If yes, and you feel adventurous, then first remove the blade, then bypass the switch, (using a power strip as a cord switch) to check to see that the motor works, in which case it must be the switch...they do go out.

Here's a link to parts for your saw:

I hope this helps you to resolve this problem. If there's anything more I can do to help, please don't hesitate to write back...
