  • ms1250 miter saw

    Looking for a little help. Have this MS1250 Rigid Miter Saw. Placed it on the Rigid SUV.
    Mobile bench. After doing this, the brake operation discontinued and blade keeps running. Anyone else had a problem with the brake..Is there something in there that could be jarred loose? Appreciate any help that could be offered

    The braking mechanism is applied via the motor brushes (assuming nothing has changed since my craftsman) and it is possible that the saw will cut fine but the braking will not work due to worn brushes or dirty brushes. Unplug the machine, pull the brushes and check that they are not chipped, blow out the armature via the brush hole and put the brushes back. If it does not work it may be time for new brushes or a trip to the service center
