Ryobi bts21 table saw not switching on

I plug it in and it will not turn on. I have power in the socket so it's not my outlet. I've used it plenty. I think it might be the brush in the motor. I examined it and it appears very worn.
Any suggestions?

Skill saw table saw model 3400.Bypassed on off switch still no power?Does motor have a breaker on inside?


I have the same saw.

Sorry but this question has to be asked, is the AC (Alternating Current) outlet working/ an live outlet? Had to ask.

If outlet is good move on to the next steps.

Take an ohm meter / continuity meter.

With the AC power cord unplugged from the AC wall outlet.

Place the two test leads from the meter onto the plug prongs .

With the switched closed/ON, you should get zero ohms (or very low, close to zero/ continuity).

In your case you probably will not have any continuity because it doesn't turn on.

Now comes the fun part trying to find the problem/ open connection.

Lots of possibilities.

  1. The AC cord could be bad at the plug end.

  2. The AC cord could be bad at the point entering the table saw.

  3. The motor could be bad.

  4. The brushes in the motor could be bad.

  5. The field winding in the motor could be open/bad.

The plan is to ohm/continuity check the path of the power going to the motor, (both sides of wiring).

While meter leads are on the AC plug end, wiggle the strain relief ends. You have an intermittent connection.


TROUBLE: SAW WILL NOT START

PROBLEM 1. Power cord is not plugged in.

2. Fuse or circuit breaker tripped.

3. Cord damaged.

4. Burned out switch.

REMEDY 1. Plug saw in.

2. Replace fuse or reset tripped circuit breaker.

3. Have cord replaced by an Authorized Skil Service Center or Service Station.

4. Have switch replaced by an Authorized Skil Service Center or Service Station.

My Ryobi table saw won't start, any ideas?


There is an overload protection breaker on the bottom left. Check it and the power switch with a meter to make sure they work.

How do i turn on a ryobi band saw


First check that it's plugged into a good outlet. Either try another electrical item in that outlet or try the band saw in an outlet you know to be good. Next step; the power switch on the riser has to have a yellow switch key (Ryobi part number 0121010232) in it to work properly. Without the key the switch will not activate the motor. If that's all OK, you should use a volt meter to first check that power is getting to the switch through the cord, then through the cord to the motor. If that's all in order you may have a problem with the motor that can only be tested by a service center with the proper equipment to check the capacitor and armature conductance.

I would first unplug the tool and then remove the throat plate and inspect inside where the blade resides for your problem. There is a possibility that something is still jammed in there. Let me know if this is not the case and I will try and locate the breakdown. There is no repair manual for these tools. Dave

I have been using my Craftsman 10" Table Saw to


First things first, check the outlet that the saw is plugged into. Does it have power? If so then progress to the saw itself and check the reset button which is usually located on the front panel but sometimes on the back or sides. Press the button firmly to make sure it is not tripped and if it is this will reset it. Make sure the power is turned off and attempt to turn the blade manually ( caution,
the blade is sharp so a pair of gloves is recommended ). If the blade turns with very little resistance then turn the power back on and try the on/off switch. If the saw starts it may very well have been the circuit breaker that had tripped.

I have a Roybi Table saw. Probally not spelled right. However the blade got stuck and now it turns by hand but when I turn power on it doesnt. Any suggestions on how to repair this problem.


Never even think of touching that blade with it plugged in. Your Ryobi may have a reset button or overload device on it. If not, the switch may have kicked the bucket.

I have a Skil 10'' table saw that will not power on.


If your switch is in the base of the machine, like some portable table saws. The switch may be full of saw dust. I hade one that the reset switch couldn't be pushed to reset because the housing was packet with saw dust. I simply opened the cover and vacuumed it out. If you open your switch box up and it is clean inside, your switch is probably bad. You can check it by taking the two wires off your switch (with the saw unplugged of course) and taping them together, if the saw works when you plug it back in, get a new switch.DON'T use your saw wired this way.
