I broke the blade in my Milwaukee Sawsal that won't come out when I twist the locking mechanism. The break is flush with the edge of the piston and there is not room to pull it with a needle nose plyer.
Spay inside where blade fits in with PB BLASTER & let set a while. Maybe you will get lucky & the blade will fall out as it should. If not then it will have to be dissembled in this area. There are 2 BB's inside that fit into the small hole on the blade. They are forced in by a spring, be careful not to lose these. Also check the accuatator when you pull the finger release, make sure it is going all the way or it is not broken, Good luck.

Unplug from power. Spray blade locking mechanism with wd40 or similar lube. 1. If you have a quik release, work the release with a pair of channel locks while wriggling the blade. If not removed, you can remove the footplate from the saw and drive the pin out that holds the quik release in place, paying attention to how the parts reassemble. 2. If you have a set screw retainer, totally remove the retainer.
This may be of no help but I believe that the reciprocating shaft is oblong on one side and more of a round hole on the other. It has to go in with the oblong down engaging one of the two wobble plates. It would be item 51. Also if you removed the wobble plates (37, 38) the shorter of the two (38) goes towards the rear. Also make sure the spacer (item 64) is in there and not messed up. Also check needle bearing item 4 and make sure it fits well on the gear shaft.
I don't know what model you have but Milwaukee sawzalls use a wobble shaft and wobble plate to turn the rotary motion of the armature into the reciprocating action of the blade. If you motor is working (hums?) but the blade won't move one or more of these parts are broken and hitting eacher (clicks?) inside the gear case. You or a repair center will have to take the gear case apart to find our what's broken and determine whether it's worth repairing.
If you buy the replacement QuikLocKit assembly they have detailed instructions in it. But here is a simple method. Unplug the tool remove the shoe, remove the small retaining ring, and then the collar, twist the inner mechanism slightly to remove the pin and the rest pulls off. Let me know if you need more assistance.
Hi, Getting a broken blade our of the sawzall chuck can be difficult and require some ingenuity and patience... Sometimes there be enough blade left so that you can grab it with a needle nose pliers... othertimes it is flush and that makes it more difficult... holding the chuck in the release position and rapping the saw against a table or with a hammer can jiggle the piece out....of course you have the chuck pointed down while you do that... Also moving the piece around a bit with a stiff wire and also soaking the chuck and blade with WD-40 helps also.... Usually it will take a combination of these things and some persistance to get the job done...
could be a break in the cord or a loose terminal at the brush holder. If you are mechanically inclined get back with me and I will instruct how to find. You will need the exact model number. If this is a quick lock cord as listed unplug and look at the terminals to make sure one not pushed away from tool and condition of the plug in handles. Let me know
twist the collar around where the blade fits in the saw. It will lock in the open position. When you insert the new blade, do so firmly until the collar releases locking the new blade in place. Give a tug at the blade to make sure it is locked in.
Hi, I'm not too struck on using WD40! It cleans down to bare metal and usually adds to the prob. Blow it out with compressed air, moving the chuck back and forth, then add a few drops of 3in1 oil. Try this first before opening a can of worms! LOL Frankster016
