Choosing Your Replacement Parts
If you are not an expert—or you do not own a repair shop—there are several fixes that we wouldn’t recommend to you. However, there are issues that beginners can repair with ease with the right replacement miter saw parts. Here are just a few troubleshooting tips before we get into actually repairing your saw:
- Determine the Source of the Malfunction: Regardless of what you may think, chop saws are almost never just broken. There is always something that is causing the malfunction; thus, your first job is to figure out what’s wrong! Are there cuts or deteriorating rubber on the power cord? Is the saw blade itself missing teeth or broken? Is the motor overheating? Answer these questions before buying new chop saw parts.
- Leave Motor Repair to the Professionals: If the motor is broken, and you don’t understand motor repair/replacement, then it might be a good idea to take your saw to a repair shop. They’ll be able to get your saw up and running for you (but don’t forget to ask them to use PlumbersStock for their part replacement source. It will save you AND them some money in the long run).
- Is your Blade unable to Turn? If so, your engine belt may be broken or stiff (or your motor may be broken). Fortunately, if it really is your motor belt, it’s not too hard to fix, and we have plenty in stock that can fix your problem!
- Will the Blade Cut? If the problem isn’t your machine not starting, rather it isn’t cutting, then there’s a chance you may need to get a different sized blade. Check your machine’s specifications before buying, and make sure your blade is installed correctly if everything checks out.
