I would look at the battery contacts first for burnt/discolored contact, if so clean with something like a pencil eraser, look at the contacts on the tool also.

The chuck may just be sticking. Remove the front housing with the large screw, tap the chuck with a hammer & pin, and lube.

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.

The shaft rusted and does not hold the blade; how do I remove the rubber cowling to repair / replace the shaft?


Remove the 2 torx screws that hold the foot on the front of the tool - the boot will slide right off with the blade release lever.
DeWalt makes a shaft upgrade kit that is fairly easy to install.

Saw is smoking


First I would check to two wire leads coming from the switch to the brushes. They will often melt from too much heat. There is a very good chance that the switch is bad too. Here is the parts diagram. The leads I referred to are items 43 and 44.

How do i CHANGE THE SAW BLADE


Hout40, holding saw as U would use it, is a "dog" on the right side, that U pull out.
If U turn it around and look at the other end ( with the blade end) U can see the "dog" work the inside, that releases the blade. HTH, JoeB

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.
