SOURCE: How to change dewalt DW304 blade

In short, with as little force. 1) use a hex key to remove a small bolt at the tip of the reciprocating blade holder, right at the base of the blade. the blade should now wobble, but you may not be able to pull the blade free. 2), turn the saw so that you are looking from the front, blade pointing right at you. now slide the blade as far to the LEFT as possible. this should be the position that the blade clears the little round retaining nub on the left side of the shaft that fits through the hole on the blade and pulls free. sometimes the blade is too thick or is bend so this is difficult. 3) try yanking or wiggling while the blade is slid as far left as possible. i just had to pry / knock the blade free with a screwdriver and hammer. there is a narrowing at the very base of the blade before it enters into the mounting hole, and i just used a screndriver wedged in there and hit iy with a hammer WHILE having the blade slid over into the left position. 4) to make it easier for yourself the next time, use sandpaper to remove the paint of the base of the new saw blade, so you will be able to easily pull it free.

Dewalt Model D304-04 reciprocating saw wont run. I plug it in, pull the trigger and it wont start. What am I doing wrong or what could the cause be?


Hi Fred:
Hmmmmm.
- Confirm there is power in the plug.
- use continuity meter to check that there is a complete circuit through the saw.
- broken connection in plug?
- broken wire between plug and switch?
- switch not functioning?
- switch set between forward and reverse?
- Speed control potentiometer contacts dirty?
- Bad brushes?

My 18v dewalt cordless circular saw wont run any more,i smelt a burning smell when cutting.could it be burnt out?


The armature could very well be shorted out. You may want to contact a DeWalt service center and ask about the GRC repair program. Here is a parts diagram.

Reciprocating saw stops reciprocating


your missing a tooth on a large round gear in the gearbox.

when the gear on the engine rotates into the position where the little engine gear spins because there is no tooth to come into contact with the engine runs but the gearbox doesnt spin, hence no reciprocation, but engine runs.

if you bump the blade it will start going again, but when you cut it will stop offasionally in mid cut. you can repair this but stop using it the engine gear will be destroyed otherwise

I have a dewalt dw303 that you can use for parts, I need a new trigger or something the motor is dead and I found a new saw. go to craigslist.org, rochester ny tools section and look for dewalt dw303 that is my listing. for ten bucks ill sell you all the gears you need. i think it is close to the same model, i am sure it is the same gearbox.

try opening your gearbox, im positive that is what is wrong.
