Default compund miter saw not cutting

I have a Compound Miter saw that has worked great for 3 years. In the past month, it loses power and slowly stops when it makes contact with wood. Not immediately, but in a few seconds. When this began to happen, I noticed that the automatic braking was no longer working properly either. Does anyone have any experience or ideas with such a problem? Thanks.

Default sure

Check the brushes on the motor, to remove and change them it is usually a flatheaded screw of plastic that is built into the housing of the motor of the saw. I always just flip mine around and it gives you a few more years. Maybe google your saw and the word Brushes.
Hope this helps. Kind or like these

If the brushes are good, the trigger would be on the short list.
