Question about Saws
I have a Sears reciprocating saw, model# 900.271260. I believe from the manual that it goes back to around 1995. The switch is stuck in the 'on' position, (somewhat thankfully). Most parts are available still, but, of course, the on-off switch is not. The part number is 147325-00. I was told by a tech at sears that it is a Milwaukee Sawsall and could possibly be cross-checked with an existing model. Love the tool. Its a true war horse, but very precarious to operate by having to plug it in and pull the plug to get it to work, Sears only answer was "I guess its time to buy a new one. Would you like to see our new models?" Yeah, give me a break. Any help might you have to offer?

OK just looked at the Searspartsdirect.com website and there are 2 parts that I think it could possibly be. One is the SHOE part # 399725-00 list 4.86 in stock and or guard 157325-00 list 4.59 also in stock. I would suggest that you go to this site and confirm which one you need, but the shoe is the piece that does ride against the work surface. Good Luck and let me know if I can help further

It sounds like the cord has a broken wire in it or there is a loose wire at the switch. Unplug tool and if you are comfortable in removing the handle halves look at the switch wiring and I pull gently on the wires from the cord to see if a can pull one out. Let me know if you still need assistance and I will go into more detail.
