I sell & repair the Makita line of tools and the BL1830 (194205-3) battery is designed to fit on Makita's entire line of 18-volt tools. You didn't give the model number of your saw so my best suggestion is to make sure the saw is an 18-volt tool then make sure the tool's and battery's mating surfaces are OK. Try the battery in other tools & try other batteries on the saw. If this doesn't help please respond with the saw's model number or what you found out doing what I've suggested.

there are usually lights on the charger to indicate what mode it is in. Let me know if not and I will try and locate a manual for this. If you do need that I would need the exact model number for everything

SOURCE: I cannot get a perfect 45 degree angle with my

When using the gauge on your saw it is off on the 45 degree cut? If so you might have to use a tri Square every time you want to cut a 45. Sometimes the lock gauge for the 45 angle may be off some. When you put a tri square on the board you cut it is not a true 45 even though the saw says it is?

SOURCE: Battery compatability

The two are not compatable. The battery chargers are also not compatable. The main difference between the two batteries is the Amp Hours. The 1815 is only 1.5 Amp Hours and the 1830 is 3.0 Amp Hours. The slide pattern for the batteries are different respectfully. You will need a DC18SA battery charger to charge the 1830 batts.

SOURCE: I have makita bss610 battery operated circular saw

The usual problem with these types of units is the battery goes bad and won't accept charge anymore, or the charger itself is defective due to a broken power cord. Obtain a DC voltmeter and check the output voltage of the charger where it connects to the battery. It should measure several volts higher than the rated voltage of the battery. If this checks good, measure the voltage at the battery terminals which should be somewhat higher than the rated voltage. Problems in the motor can be the switch itself, or it may have a defective brush. Connect the meter to the wiring with the battery plugged in (if it is charged) and check for voltage at the motor with switch turned on. Remove each brush and check for length, burning, collapsed spring, or other damage. Occasionally, a wire can break within the field winding due to vibration. Hope some of this helps!

Saw stopped working. changed brushes. still not working.just dead.blade turns ok.not even a click


These are notorious for burning out armatures.
The replacement process is pretty involved, I would not attempt unless you are comfortable.
Remove the brushes
Remove the 3 Screws hold the motor assy to the saw
Remove the screws holding the motor housing together.
Separate the housing and you should be able to see right away if the armature is burnt (many times the windings actually blow apart)

Often when the armature burns out it also melts the brush holder assy - I would recommend replacing it as well.
If the armature appears fine then I would lean toward the switch. Makita BSS611 18V LXT Lithium Ion 6 1 2 Circular Saw Parts

These are notorious for burning out the armatures. If you are comfortable opening the tool up you can tell very quickly - I have sent a link with the breakdown showing how the tool goes together.
Usually visual inspection is all that is necessary - if the armature is the culprit you will see it is burnt or even blown apart.
If the armature is the problem, most of the time it also damages the brush holder assy & it should be replaced as well.
If the armature is in good shape then your problem is the switch, but my experience would have you check the armature first. Makita BSS611 18V LXT Lithium Ion 6 1 2 Circular Saw Parts

Why will a makita Li-ion 1.3ah battery not fit in other makita tools?


Some of the Makita 18v LXT tools require the BL1830 3.0AH battery and are designed that the 1.5AH battery will not fit.

Can something be done


More likely it is a battery issue.

Often users run the saw for a period AFTER the battery starts to go down. The result is reverse charging the weakest cell which then will no longer take a charge

Try a new fully charged battery and NEVER run the saw beyond the point where it starts to slow down due to battery charge.
