Question about Ace Hardware Power Glide Circular Saw with Laser

1 Answer

Power glide miter saw just stopped turning on, no power?

Worked fine until this week. I use it occasionally, so its not a problem of overuse. It worked fine just this past month. Then I went to use it and there is no power to the unit, at all! I checked the plug, its fine, every other appliance or tool I've attached to it works. Is there a fuse in the system, I have no operating manual, never had one. I bought it new a couple of years ago, now, no power?

    don't have a manual so just going by what i've seen and repaired on other units.. have never seen a fuse on most power tools, though many motors may use an imbedded thermal breaker that will break the circuit until the motor interior cools down.. only way to see what's wrong with yours is to take it apart and check continuity using a multitester.. most common problem is that a wire has come loose from its fitment, usually having to do with the trigger switch.. you could take the handle apart to access the switch and see if wiring is secure.. really need to check to see if the switch is the problem using a multitester set to continuity, the setting that sounds a tone when the probes are touched to each other or the two ends of a circuit.. a cheap one will do fine.. unplugged, of course, put one probe on the black line in from the power cord and the other on anything that comes out from the switch to the motor.. with switch off- no tone; with switch on- tone.. if not then the switch is place to start...

Many power tools have a reset button. They are not always easy to find but this could be a solution.

SOURCE: No owners manual. Can't operate

There is no such stepp to operate a circular saw.The only not ready to operate it is the setings of the angle,thickness,width and Guides for cutting.,and none with the electrical system.Becoz when you plug in & switch it will automatically turn the blades absolutely..
GET RID TO THE INPUT VOLTAGE! be careful .are you here in philippines?if that so,we have a 220-240 volts supply of power here.Read the voltage input of the unit written on the body of the unit itself.If it is 100 0r 110 volts then DONOT plug-in and switch need a transformer.

My Dewalt DW705 miter saw just stopped running,instantly. Have power all the way to the brushes,power through the switch when engaged. Still won't run. Any ideas?

The motor may have failed abruptly. There could be an open thermal overload if your saw is equipped with one buried in the motor windings.

Adjusting the miter angle involves two cast surfaces sliding against each other. If those surfaces have some irregularities, high spots on the two surfaces will bind against each other. You may have to disassemble the rotating table from the base and do some filing or grinding.

Craftsman Miter Saw stopped working

Are you plugged into a GFI receptacle? If so maybe you have to reset the GFI. I would also check for loose wires on the switch or plug and make sure your cord is good.

I have an older model black and decker miter saw. How do you change the blade? I can't seem to stop the motor shaft from turning in order to loosen the nut to remove the blade?

Hi, you need to look thoroughly at the casing of the electric motor. Somewhere between the motor and the gearbox is the brake which must be depressed in order to stop the motor from turning. If for some reason you cannot find this brake, use a pair of vise grips and clamp down on the inside of the blade and turn it until it stops. Now you can unbolt you blade. P.S. make sure you know if the thread is reverse or not! Good luck.

My mitre saw won't power up. I moved it and it worked a few days ago. I have it plugged in. The electrical plug has power (checked with something else) but the saw won't turn on. Is there a reset...

There may be a RED reset button on the motor, It won't push very far, Unplug the saw push the reset and try it again

You may have sustained some damage to the power cord and need to take a look at the internal cord connections

Check the power cable. They could be broken or frayed and you are not getting enough power to it replace and then try to see if it works then. Make sure you buy the right size gauge for you machine
