Question about Saws

1 Answer

Reciprocating saw stopped working while cutting

I have had this saw for only a few years to do non-commercial projects around my house. The other day, I was sawing up some treated 2x4s to dispose of them and part way through it just siezed up with the blade fully retracted into the housing. I checked the electrical cable by plugging it in to several other working outlets to no avail. I cannot get the housing apart where the motor resides. The manual has no troubleshooting information. Thanks for any advice you can provide.

How to build a dirt floor 20 by 20 shed


Put posts in ground.
Middle posts taller so roof will have slope
Nail 2x4s across from post to post to hold siding.
One row of 2x4s around bottom, 2 rows 2x4s around middle,
1 row 2x6s or 2x8 around top.
2x6s 2x8 will hold rafters
Nail 4x8 sheets treated plywood onto the 2x4s to make walls.
Install joists across top of structure from one wall to the other wall
Install rafters at correct angle to match slope of roof, be careful to each rafter exactly the same.
Rafters sit on outside wall

I have a 46 cc with an 18" bar. The first few times I used the saw it worked fine. Now I am up to the 5th use and once started the blade spins and the saw runs as if you are giving it full gas. ...


If this is a new saw and you have only used it a few time it may still be under warranty. Saw sometimes carry up to 1 year warranty on some applications(what you use it for-home-owner or commercial). If the saw is out of warranty it sounds like you have a problem with the rod alignment (actually it's a stiff wire) but it seems that it may be holding the throttle valve open. Check the trigger action to see if is actually smooth and not binding. When you squeeze and release the trigger the saw should stop. If it does not you must find where it is binding. Look under the carburetor and check the action there. Squeeze and release that trigger until you see something either binding or out of the ordinary in the action. When you release the trigger the saw should stop. Have fun. Then get back to work!

New skil HD5510-01 5 1/2 inch trim saw quit running after cutting a bunch of 2x4s


Does it have any sort of blade safety lock?
Did the blade bind and possibly throw the built in circuit breaker?
If so, there may be a small pin or button you press.
Did you try a different electrical outlet?
The one you were using could have a GFP and not able to take the draw of a saw.

How to get blade off


1. Unplug the saw.
2. Locate the blade lock button used to lock the motor shaft when changing a blade. For your saw, this button is usually located on the right side of the blade guard somewhere around the motor housing.
3. Push the button while rotating the blade until the button engages and the blade will no longer turn.
4. Use the wrench that came with the saw (or another wrench) to loosen and remove the blade bolt. For a worm drive saw with the blade to the left of the motor, the bolt should have left hand threads (non-standard) which means you loosen the bolt by turning it clock-wise.

PoulanPro PP3516AVX gas cap will not go in and close properly


I hate to say but you need two caps or run non ethanol fuel. There are a few gas stations around that still sell it. I keep a can around for the saws. What I do is run one and let the other sit in the sun and dry. I can usually use one all day before it swells.

My table saw will turn on, but sounds very loud


Possibly bearing wear, or the blade rubbing against the guard/housing. Unplug the saw and spin the blade slowly by hand, if it feels notchy then I would suggest bearing wear. if it only seems to feel notchy in places then it could also be damaged gears.
