I have a Ridgid 10" compound miter saw I haven't used for a while. I
fired it up last night to make a quick cut. The on/off switch is on
the handle...you grip the handle to turn it on, and (theoretically)
release the handle to switch the blade off.
So I finished my cut last night, released the handle, and...IT WAS
STILL ON. Yikes. Tried squeezing the handle again a couple times to
see if it would "click off", nothing. I had to reach around and unplug
the danged thing to get it to stop.
Now, I'm afraid to start it back up again. I realize this is a pretty
short description, but...does this sound like a user-fixable problem,
or should I cart it back to Home Depot (where I bought it a couple
years ago), and see if they'd exchange it?
