Not that bad, I would go to Dewaltservicenet.com and look at an explosion before taking yours part. You have to remove the top of the handle, there is cover on the side towards the blade that is tight to remove and then the strain relief on the tube. The cord set that you need is 330078-98 list for 16.76. It is a 10ft 16-2 wire. Just take your time and if you are handy with tools you should have no problem. Let me know if I can help I work on them all the time.

I replaced switch and still doesn't work


Check your cord & insure you have continuity to & through the switch first.
Second, check the brushes - make sure they are not worn down & that they slide easily down the brush tube to contact the armature. I have had a few of these with bad field windings - the winding breaks off right at the field connector (you will need a meter to test this)

Puppy chewed the cord. It is an internal cord and does not plug into the back of the tv. Can I replace it myself? Directions or diagram? Where is the best place to get the replacement cord?


Any polarized power cord will work----cautions: the cord where it connects inside will have either a white stripe on one side or a rough surface---that is the neutral side---replacement must be soldered to correct points---you get it backwards and set will work but shock hazard will exist-------if you have enough cord left you can do a splice repair-----I cut them back and offset so not next to each other(the two sides of the cord----get some heat shrink tubing--slide it over each side and down a ways---solder the two ends for each side back together (you will lose a little of the cord) and once soldered slide the shrink tubing down over the soldered parts and heat it with a hair dryer and it will shrink air tight over the solder connection's---you do not want the splices side by side to prevent any possible short----for extra protection once done use some black electrical tape and tape the whole area.

Either replace entire cord or splice repair it. Examine cord end to end for any bare wire showing---if chewed in more than one spot replace entire cord.

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

Hi my dewalt 708 lx sliding mitre saw, 110v, seems to only have half the power(speed) that it should have, and cannot cut timber on a compound cut because of this, any suggestions please.


I have heard complaints that this saw does not do well on angled cuts because of its low power. Try running a shorter and/or thicker extension cord and checking your input voltage. That's about all I can think of, hope it helps.

Why when i cut a bit of 6" skirting board it does'nt cut square on a brand new ryobi ems 2026 sliding mitre saw


Don't ever assume that the markings on the angle setting are correct and accurate. Always check squareness with a square before you use a miter saw. With almost all brands of power tools being built overseas nowadays there is unfortunately a question of accuracy on most brands. Always check.
