  • Ridgid Mitre Saw, Blade stopped, motor keeps running...

    Hi, My 12" mitre saw just failed... after about 10 hours of use.

    At first, it sounded as if it would not get up to speed until about 3 seconds... then, after 2 more cuts, the automatic brake stopped working and the blade would continue to spin for 5 seconds after dis-engaging... 2 cuts later, the blade actually stopped in a piece of trim and the motor kept running... so I'm assuming there is a clutch that has failed?

    Any help on what the issue may be would be great. This saw is 3.5 years old, but has barely been used in those 3.5 years. HELP!

    Long shot, but have you made sure the blade is nice and tight?
