If the switch does not work try the carbon brushes.  I had similar problem with my hand grinder and tablesaw (skil model 3400). I discovered the wire holding the brushes fraid which caused intermitent power geting to the armiture.

What you are describing sounds like the power is being interrupted somewhere. In my experience, this is usually casued by a bad switch. Try replacing the trigger switch.

On the front of the saw right to the left of the words Skilsaw you will see a large red switch. Pull it out to start the saw and push it in to stop the saw.

My LS1216 slide compound miter saws mitering table is stuck at 0 degrees it appears jammed although I've looked for something jammed stopping the plate from moving and see nothing, the handle locking...


Hello stella....... There is a locking mechanism on the miter saw to lock it on whatever setting you require. loosen that locking mechanism and the saw should move for you. Here is a schematic of the parts so you can see exactly which parts are involved

Can I order from anyone a new fence for a skilsaw fence model 3400.


Skil is part of Bosch Tools. You can go to their website. https://www.boschtoolsservice.com. Click on "Search for your tool" under tool model # type in 3400. I believe the fence you are looking for is part #860 and costs about $34.00, however I would recommend calling them because there were so many variations on the 3400 that there may be more than 1 fence for model 3400 and you want to make sure you get the proper one.

I don't have this saw, but my guess is the adjustment is underneath the table, holding the blade assembly. You'll have fun standing on your head trying to adjust it (loosen, tighten, try again) but that may be the only way. Good luck.

Where is blade lock for my Skilsaw 5150 located


look for the button on the right side of the handle. Other models require you to put a phillips head screwdriver into a hole in the blade to hold it against the body of the saw.
