SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Change blade on Dewalt DC385 XRP reciprocating saw

The button is for changing the shoe position, you should find a lever on the opposite side that you need to lift up on to release the blade. You might be able to get a owners manual at Dewaltservicenet.com and in the middle of the page towards the bottom type in your model number and it will direct you how to download one. Let me know if you need more help

SOURCE: I Have a Dewalt DC385 type 2 Reciprocating saw.

REMOVE THE BLADE !!!! take the handle apart and lift out the switch. keep track of the lock slide button and how it is installed. unplug the switch wires. carefully touch the wires you just unplugged onto the battery terminals. these wires lead directly to the motor. BEWARE.. if the motor components are good , the saw will run at FULL SPEED. you only need to tap the wires, DO NOT jamb them onto the battery. If the motor runs then most likely the switch is bad. If you know how to use a continuity tester then you can also check the switch. Bad moter likely culprtet is the brushes are crapped out.

SOURCE: lubrication and maintenance reciprocal saw DeWalt

Before you attempt any of this I would recommend going to Dewaltservicenet.com and see what the inside of this tool looks like. It appears that you need to remove part of the front gearcase to get into the lube. The back e.g. brushes is not that big of a deal. If there is a Service Center near you they have a Max repair rate that they will fix anything on this saw at a preset firm price and if it is less that is what they would charge.

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?

Is there a fix for heavy vibration


Sadly dewalts vibrate a lot! They don't have the counter balance the the Milwaukee and Makitas do. My guess is it's fine. I'd check the four screws that hold the gear case to the body regularly to make sure they stay tight.

Reciprocating


That sounds dangerous! Does it actually cut after you do that? It sounds like it has bad gears and wouldn't cut if you put pressure to the blade. On a dw303 it's likely not worth repair if that's the case.

    How to open the front housing of dewalt dc385 recipricating saw


    press release button and remove shoe on front of saw. Remove 2 screws on front end. Slide off rubber covering. To open gearbox remove 4 screws and pull off. Note, once open yo probably have to replace the gasket. If saw is jammed, try spray a penetrating oil in and tap shaft with a hammer using a wood dowel for contact. You can remove the 2 rubber plugs from the gear casing and pump in grease without removing the cover.
