We have a Makita chop saw model number LS1030N. There is a feature, that after the chop, you raise the saw head it has a braking feature that stops the blade. My saw does not brake any longer and just coasts to a stop. I have taken the motor assembly off the blade head and cannot see any thing that looks like a brake or any components that seem to stop the motor travel. Looking at the drawings on eReplacement, I cannot see anything called braking parts, etc., nor have I pulled the entire motor assembly apart yet since the tool still works; it just will not brake.
