Saw quit I used my saw 1 day then took it out of the box the next day and nothing. Power cord is fine and with a meter the power goes thru the trigger. Brushes look fine . It is 10 -15 yrs old but has never been burnt.

This was helpful in solving the problem with my Sawzall. However... the pins that had moved where the pins in the receptacle on the saw. They had pushed back into the female portion of the connection. I pulled that back out with a pair of needle nose pliers and viola! Shees-a-workin! Thanks! Greg.

OK there are quite a few things to look for. It seems that you are comfortable with some disassembly so lets go further. I dont know what model you have but it still might have a broken wire or the pins pulled out of the plug end. Look at that first. If you have power thru the switch I would next check the field and while there look at the "flag" terminals that go to the brush tubes, they had a habit of coming loose and stopping the tool. If this is the case you can remove the brushes and after pushing them back solder them to the brass tubes. Lastly roll the armature by hand and look for any serious discoloration or differences on the commutator. Let me know if I can help more.

Makita JR3000V stopped working


I would have checked the cord first. Cords are a high failure part because they always get bent and pulled and such. Some versions of the jr3000v had problems with field wires breaking right at the field terminal.

the field unless dropped is a permanent magnet and WON"T fail. I would look at the contacts from the battery to the saw. This battery has a sometimes problem with heating up and makes contact difficult. you can usually see where the housing is distorted in the contact area. if you have tested the switch and sounds like you know how to use the meter check the continuity/resistance across the brush leads and while doing this turn the armature slowly to check for open portions of the commutator. if all good there then your power supply is the area of concern. Let me know if I can help anymore. And did you call the 1-800-sawdust number.

Tool all of a sudden stopped working. Have power through cord, but squeeze the trigger and nothing.


Two things to check: Some of the newer models have a speed control on the side. Be sure that you have not set this to the lowest (off) setting. Also, verify that the cord is all the way in and locked. Next I would replace the trigger. Over the years, I have had to replace the trigger a number of times.

I have Dewalt DW309k .was working fine all of a sudden in the middle of the job it just stoped working.nothing is binding or jammed .I though it was the electricity breaker however all the other tools...


It could be a bad on off switch. You have to take it apart and check the switch whith a ome meter. Also check the power cord where it goes in the saw for voltage. While it is apart make sure you can spin the motor by hand. Also check the brushes on the motor they should be under screw caps.

No power to saw works sometimes then stops and wont run


check the cord for the pins pulling out and then I would test thru to the brush holders. Also if you are comfortable removing the handle half check for a loose connection to the switch and the flag terminals at the brush tubes. Let me know if you need more help.

Boot on the saw.


You are probably wanting to repair/replace the blade holding assembly. The boot does come off with persistence. You will have to remove the foot piece first (two screws). Try using long thin screwdrivers as shoe horns and be persistent. I agree that it is a poor design. Why the new improved blade lock assembly I'll never know. The nib breaks off that fits into the hole in the blade and then there is nothing to hold the blade. If all else fails to get the boot off you can cut it and order another boot. Remarkably, the boot isn't that expense. Unless you feel you can make a replacement pin you'll have to order the entire blade lock assembly and it cost about $20. I had the reciprocating saw for a tear before I used it and the holder broke on it first outing! Being loyal to Craftsman in the past, I hate to admit that these days many of the power tools are cheaply made Chinese junk. My advice, don't spend much to repair, cut your losses and buy DeWalt, Skill, etc. Hope this helps.

My DREMEL 1680 Variable speed 16" scroll saw will not turn on.


As a result of the power being on to the attached light I knew it was not a power source problem so I took the fuse area cover off(with the machine unplugged) and saw there were no loose connections in that area. I then removed the front control area where the two swithes for the saw and light were. I took off the two wires on the saw switch and then plugged the saw in and jumped the two wires together. The saw worked!!!!!!. I then changed the light switch over to the saw switch location and the switch works . It appears it was a faulty switch. Today I will call the Dremel 1-800- number and order a new switch.

Sawzall quit working


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

Cordless or cord saw Comparison


Cordless tools lose power as the battery drains, while corded tools deliver reliable, consistent performance with unlimited run time. Corded reciprocating saws range from less than 5 amps to 15 amps or more, with more than 10 amps providing optimal power for heavy-duty commercial use.
