You must make sure you are plugged into a live circut by testing with other appliance,if ok,then look for kill safty switches that are part of the equipment and dewalt will tell you where once you explain model #.

Sounds like a bad found er wire some were make sure the cord that plugs into the wall is good, then the wires that plug into ur switch swap them n try it if that don't work keep following the wires from the on off switch to the motor n look for a wire that got pulled off or broke or ground wire somewere. Also look for wires that r touching each other. Its something simple keep at it you will figure it out
First, check the outlet it's plugged into.
Power cords can go open, try holding the trigger (careful), and bend the power cord near the plug, and near the saw.
Trigger switches can go out.
saw motors can go out.
James, Does it do anything at all when depressing trigger? Check the outlet and or extension cord you are plugged into for power, try a different outlet. With an assistant hold button on saw in the on position and give saws power cord the wiggle and bend test to see if the cord has a break in it, especially at the plug and where it enters saw body.
If none of these seem to be issue, Brushes or the trigger is probably faulty.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I hate to say this, but Ryobi makes cheap power tools for guys who used them once in a blue moon. Sounds like you are so what of a Pro. don't waste your time fixing a cheap saw. Go get a real power saw that will cut good and last for years
I have been in the same situation in the past, with a mastercraft miter saw to a point of using playing cards to get that nice tight miter joint. placing the cards between the fence and the piece i was trying to miter.Rioby makes mastercraft all thought they are a good saw they have their limits to the precisions of their cuts. good for fences,decks, stuctural framing ect, were a degree two is not a big thing,but when making furniture or interior trim work or picture frames or hobby craft you need to buy a good pro saw like a dewalt or bosh sliding compoud miter saw they may cost more **** their worth the money they are very precise and will last a life time if taken care of .It will be worth the money when you get that perfect cut every time you use it,it will put the JOY and fun back in your projects and not to mention qualaty in your master pieces.
I completely removed the blade and put it back on, tightening the locknut, and now it works perfectly. The blade has not come loose and have used the machine for the last 3 months. The only thing I can think of is that somehow I didn't have the blade correctly installed in the first place, although it didn't wobble or anything.
