Hey guys, I have a Makita LS1013 Dual Sliding Compound Miter Saw. The electric brake does not work at all. I read the through the forum and it was suggested to check brushes, clean commutator and motor. I did these things and still the brake does not work at all. My next move would be to replace the switch. Before I do so I want to try and get some confirmation from a tech or someone that making this move could potentially fix the issue. For my next question, does the controller have anything to do with the brake and could replacing it fix the brake?

Thanks a lot
Joe

zzkazu

I've had my Makita since July 2011 (only used 5 times) and on occasions found it wouldnt spin up to full rpms, all times since this was only temporary. Well today it seems permanent and I think it might be a switch issue? Anybody has similar problems

Is there a trick to reattaching the Garter Spring to the Brush holders? The wires are so short I had to do it with chopstick thru the back, after the field was in place. But just incase i have to do it again I could use some advice. It may be that the Brush Holders can come out, I couldn't to it and didn't want to break them.

Question: Spring On Brush Holder

Duane

Hello. I have a makita LS1013 miter saw that has stopped working. I took it a part and saw that there was a little copper colored spring on the brush holder inside the motor housing that was broke or burnt off and not making a connection. What is this part and can I replace it with another or do I have to order a complete motor housing of field assy? I was using the saw when sparks came from the saw blade and this is what I found.
WJA
Reply: Spring On Brush Holder

WJA

Hello Duane,

Makita does not supply the brush holder spring as a service part. You can however order the part number 803104 to replace the damaged one you have. That will be a cheap fix if that is the problem. Hopefully a bad armature or field didn't cause it to burn.

Hope this helps,

Holding the switch so the 3 screws are on top and the 2 screws are on the bottom. The black cord wire will go the first top screw on the left, the orange field wire will go the top center screw,the yellow field wire will go to the upper right screw, the white cord wire will go to the lower left screw,the red controller wire will go to the lower right screw.

Question: Bevel Range Is Limited

Jeff

I can't get the saw to tilt (bevel) past 40 degrees in either direction. It stops abruptly at 40 deg. as if it is a positive stop. The owners manual doesn't explain much about the bevel feature, except fine tuning it. It seems as if there must be a bolt I haven't located that is creating the stop. Help?

Question: Calabrate

Alan Talley

How do i true up my saw ? it is ten years old .
Mark
Reply: Calabrate

Mark

Hi Alan,

You will need a small square to align your saw. I like to use a 6" Adjustable Combination Square. Start with the fence. Lock the saws miter adjustment into the 0 degree setting. Loosen the bolts which attach the fence to the base. Using your square, position the fence so that it is square to the blade. Now tighten the fence bolts back down.

On the back of the saw there are a couple of set screws that set the zero and 45 degree stops for the bevel. Remove the head from your adjustable combination square. Now you can use just the head to set the bevel adjustments. Check the zero degree setting first and make any needed adjustment with the set screw on the back of the saw. Now do the same for the 45 degree stop.

Your saw should now be true and ready for many more years of accurate cutting!

Hi Ron,

I really am not certain what would cause the described problem. I think I would start with the controller. It is the only part I can think of that would cause the speed to vary like that. The controller is part #631218-8 and is available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com.

I hope this helps with your repair!

Question: LS1013 Miter Saw

What part keeps the saw from sliding?
MikeA
Reply: LS1013 Miter Saw

MikeA

There are several parts that could cause the saw even when tightened. The most likely is part #344411-2 (fig #131) which is the slide stopper. If that part is broken the slides cannot be locked. Here's a link to the part:

I hope this helps!
Hello forum,

I own a Makita LS1013 sliding compound MS. I am an experienced carpenter. I was getting ready to install some Plexiglass (the kind you can cut with wood saws) in some windows I made, when I noticed one of the panes of Plexi was a little to long to fit into the window. Seeing that I had cut all the Plexi on my table saw (rips and cross cuts), I thought I would trim the piece on my LS1013, which I had set up to cut the moldings for the windows.
Anyway, as I was making the cut on the Plexi, I lowered the blade slowly into the Plexi and BANG!!! there was a loud chunk sound, the power went out on the saw and the blade was spinning freely until it slowed and stopped on its own.
I checked the power on the extension cord with another too (in case a breaker blew on the outlet), and then plugged the LS1013 back in, no power, DEAD.
So my question is what could have happened inside the LS1013 to render it dead...

I am guessing the blade jammed on the plexi, though strangely the plexi was not shattered or damaged at all, I am guessing it jammed and broke something inside the saws motor housing. Whatever happened the saw is now getting no power at all.

emo325

hello! if power is going in and out of the switch, check armature and field for damage and especially the field leads to the brush holders that looks like a spring surrounding the brush holder are very delicate to heat and shock, if they look good then the last issue would be the controller assembly located outside the motor casing. good luck!

I'm trying to replace the blade case and need to remove the motor to do it. Any suggestions on how the motor comes off so it can be put on the new case.
UtahAV
Reply: Makita Ls1013

UtahAV

Hi duanejoy,

I think removing the motor looks worse than it will really be. Start by unplugging the saw of course! Now remove the motor brushes. You will likely need to remove the right side of the handle to give you enough wire length to remove the motor. Now you can remove the four screws at the base of the motor housing. With the screws removed the motor housing with the field attached will slide off of the armature. At the base of the armature there is a bearing retaining plate. Remove the two screws which attach it to the blade housing and you can now pull the armature off of the blade housing. That should be it for the removal of the motor.

Let us know how the repair goes!

I got the motor apart and back on and ran into one more problem. the hole that the saw blade guard screws into is smaller on the new case than the old one. It takes a special screw so that it can swivel. any one run into this yet

Hey gazzang,
Most likely it is the switch..[if your brush's look ok and are making contact..] intermittent working of the trigger is usually a sign of a bad switch..
hope this helps..:)

Could also be the controller part #631218-8

I have the same problem. Anyone know how to diagnose if it is the switch or controller using an ohm/volt meter? I guess I could start with the $15 switch before the $62 controller but it would be nice to know which it is. Let me know if anyone has a way to diagnose.

thanks, Rick
I am attempting to repair my LS1013. The Link Plate (#18) that moves the blade guard when bringing the Blade Case (#52) down for a cut keeps falling off the pin in the Blade Case. I thought it was a simple replacement of part #19-E ring, #20-flat washer and #21-Stop ring. Should have known better, it appears that the pin in the blade case that the link plate rides on is cut/sheared. Looking at the parts diagram there appears not to be any identification of this pin. Looking from the blade case rear and moving forward from the spring the part would be the second "hole". I hope I am merely missing the part number or worst case it is not a separate part. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated because the Blade Case costs $112.00. Thanks, John

I've sometimes seen people break this pin:



Perhaps that's the problem you're having. Unfortunately if you have broken this pin, it's only available as part of the larger upper blade case here:

eReplacementparts.com : BLADE CASE [1514692] - $116.89

It's a pretty expensive part at $116.89 but it will get the saw working again. Hopefully this is helpful.

Thanks Mike, even if it confirms my worst (wallet) fears. Given that the Blase Case is so expensive I'll probably fabricate a pin on the old lathe first before spending the money. John

Hehe, that's definitely a cheaper way to do it! :) Let me know how everything works out.
Has anyone expereienced this problem with their Makita Compound Slider? The electric brake is not working like it has, The blade continues to run for several seconds after you let up on the switch. I bought new brushes from link removed thinking that might be the issue but the symptoms are the same.

Any help would be appreciated.

The brushes would have been the first thing I would have suggested. If that didn't do the trick, here is another idea.

You might want to try cleaning the commutator on the armature. I am not sure how tough it is to get access to on the LS1013.

Here is a picture of a typical armature and commutator:



The electric brake on the LS1013 operates by reversing the polarity for a short time on the motor as soon as you let go of the switch. So the connection between the brushes and the commutator must be working for the brake to be working.

How well is the saw running normally? Any loss of power or intermittent performance? One symptom of a bad connection between the brushes and the commutator is high arcing at the brushes. Sometimes the saw will run forward OK, but braking will still be problematic. Also, if you just barely replaced the brushes keep in mind that you may have to run the saw for a little bit to seat the brushes.

What happens when you let go of the switch? Is there any evidence of braking at all (just not enough to stop quickly), or does the blade run without any braking?

The only other thing I would mention is that if there is no braking effect at all, then it might be a problem with the electrical components of the saw not reversing the polarity after the switch is let go.
Keep us posted how it is going.

I have a similar problem with a DeWalt 705 Type 8 miter saw. Could the cause be the same?

During the two years in our shop we have had the brushes and the switch replaced twice.

Appreciate your thoughts.

James,


This could be the problem. The DW705 uses the same mechanism to stop the blade. When you let go of the switch, the polarity is reversed which causes the blade to stop. As a rule, if the blade brake goes bad check the brushes first because they are cheap and easy to fix. As suggested above, check the armature to makes sure it looks clean and is getting a good connection.

If those both look good, it might be something that a professional should look at.

Worked on two 705 & 708 Dewalts at work. Both had the lack of braking. 705 worked after replacing the switch. The other had the switch replaced, new field winding and new brushes and brush holders and it still wouldn't stop like it should. Company rep said she didn't know what else it could be. Me either!!

Hi Guys, I would like to retrofit my saw with a laser. Does anybody know if there is a way to convert the LS1013 to the newer model LS1013LF?

Hey baldwinlc,
It really isn't economical..LS1013FL has the light and laser..the LS1013L is just the laser..their are too many components that you would have to change over and they are fairly pricey...but the main problem is the blade case assembly that holds the laser..the LS1013 doesn't look like it can be converted over..[to the best of my knowledge.] :)
Hope this helps..?

I have owned my LS1013 since 12/02 and have been happy with its accuracy.

An all around great saw... Just the right amount of features, and very well built. I feel like so many new tools are "gimmicky" - but with these Makita miter saws, I don't think that is the case. They perform well and get the job done. This saw works great for all types of applications. The motor has lots of power, starts smoothly, and stops quickly. It is easy to get a straight cut.
