Dewalt DW362 7 1/4 CIRCULAR SAW JUST STOPPED WORKING. No smoke or anything.

There might be a thermal overload device in the motor windings that opens in the event of an overload leaving you with a saw that is completely dead.

Dewalt circular saw runs like power lacking intermit ant

The armature is bad. A new armature is about the same cost as a new saw. Buy a Milwaukee next time.

Go to, put your model number in the 'Find Parts' box and hit search. There are two types of your saw, DC390B and DC390K, select the proper one and you can view or download the parts breakdown or instruction manual.

I have just brought a new dewalt dc390 cordless circular saw and it seems that the motor is running backwards?

It is possible that the motor is running backward but... first see the manual here: Make sure the blade is installed as pictured in figure 4 page 11 of the manual.
After seeing the manual..... make sure the battery is charged correctly. The flat side of the battery should be toward the back of the charger when charging. If somehow the battery was inserted backward in the charger it is possible the battery was reverse charged during the intital charge. If you suspect this has happened.... insert the battery in the saw and run the saw until the battery is DEAD. Then insert it properly in the charger and leave it there for 9 hours so the charger will do the automatic tune up equalization of the battery.

If none of the above correct the problem, someone connected the internal battery power wiring incorrectly during FACTORY assembly. I would take it back to the retailer first... before processing a warranty claim.

I have a DW357 circular saw. It is running backwords???

It shouldn't be for no reason...... Check that the blade is spinning over the top and down into the wood in the line of travel. Is it possible that the blade is on backwards?

My DW384 circular saw keeps tripping the GFI receptacle

Most houses have all the outdoor GFI outlets on one breaker...perhaps you can try another power tool with a similar draw to check if it is your saw or the GFI causing your problem. I can't see bad brushes causing a breaker to trip... the saw would just stop working.
