  • problems with compound miter saw ms1065LZ - horrible noise

    HI all,

    I have a compound miter saw (MS1065LZ) that's been making a horrible, screeching / grinding noise when it 1st starts, then smooths out while running then gets worse when it is stopping. I pulled out the "brushes" and they both have approx. 1/2" left before the wear line. Any suggestions as to what the problem is would be greatly appreciated.

    Just a quick guess, but I think I'd check to see if the "brake" mechanism is sticking, perhaps clogged with debris. If you're covered under warranty or the LLSA, let them do it, otherwise it's a bit of a chore to disassemble.

    My thinking that it is the "brake" is only because you mention that the noise is ONLY on the initial startup and as the RPM winds-down after you've switched it off... at higher RPM the brake would be free. Does the noise coincide with the braking mechanism bringing the blade to a stop?

    I hope this helps,

    CWS

      Is the blade tight?

        HI Guys

        I managed to fix my problem by dumb luck. I pulled out the brushes & wiped a little grit off them but the noise was still there. I continued to use the saw until I had a piece of wood kick back & get stuck between the blade & blade cover. I had to take the blade off to get at the wood & decided to wipe a little oil on the washers that hold the blade in place, it's supposed to be done when putting a blade on. (I'd read that in the manual when I was trying to see if I needed to oil it occasionally) Low & behold the horrible noise went away !!! Problem solved. Thanks for the assistance!
