Question about Milwaukee Tool 10 Amp Sawzall Plus with Quick - Lok Cord
Was using sawzall and it would not turn back on. Thought maybe the brushes broke or wore out but they look fine. Could the twist lock power cord have a short? I tried to test it with a voltmeter but don't get a constant voltage. How can I test to see if the cord, trigger or brushes are bad?
Thanks for any suggestions.
With an ohm meter check the pins where the cord plugs in. Pull the trigger and check for a reading. If that's ok, then do the same with the power cord for a reading from the plug to the terminals on the other end. My guess is that you will need a new cord. Do Not Patch a power cord!! Frankster016

You didn't specify if it was a twist lock cord or not. If it is maybe one of the pins pulled out of the locking mech, you could still get a reading but it will not lock into the pin housing on the tool. The switches in these tools have a remote electronic which you cannot check with a volt ohms meter. One last thing look at the spade terminal on the brush holder sometimes they back out giving you a fit.
