Question about Milwaukee Tool 10 Amp Sawzall Plus with Quick - Lok Cord
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.

Tips for a great answer:
I have the same saw.
Sorry but this question has to be asked, is the AC (Alternating Current) outlet working/ an live outlet? Had to ask.
If outlet is good move on to the next steps.
Take an ohm meter / continuity meter.
With the AC power cord unplugged from the AC wall outlet.
Place the two test leads from the meter onto the plug prongs .
With the switched closed/ON, you should get zero ohms (or very low, close to zero/ continuity).
In your case you probably will not have any continuity because it doesn't turn on.
Now comes the fun part trying to find the problem/ open connection.
Lots of possibilities.
The AC cord could be bad at the plug end.
The AC cord could be bad at the point entering the table saw.
The motor could be bad.
The brushes in the motor could be bad.
The field winding in the motor could be open/bad.
The plan is to ohm/continuity check the path of the power going to the motor, (both sides of wiring).
While meter leads are on the AC plug end, wiggle the strain relief ends. You have an intermittent connection.
TROUBLE: SAW WILL NOT START
PROBLEM 1. Power cord is not plugged in.
2. Fuse or circuit breaker tripped.
3. Cord damaged.
4. Burned out switch.
REMEDY 1. Plug saw in.
2. Replace fuse or reset tripped circuit breaker.
3. Have cord replaced by an Authorized Skil Service Center or Service Station.
4. Have switch replaced by an Authorized Skil Service Center or Service Station.
