Question about Saws

1 Answer

I need to replace my electric cord on my Craftsman circular saw. I have the replacement cord and have opened the saw. The new cord ends with just a black and white wire. But the old cords black and white wire connect to a white opaque plastic box. It does not connect with screws. The wires just disappear into the white box, which appears to have no way to open it. So how do I connect the new wires? Does this white box open somehow. On the back side of the white box another set of black and blue wires come out.

My best advice is to sever the wires going into the unit at a point where they are in good condition, obtain a soldering device and solder, some heat shrink tubing addtiquit for the size of wire and connect your new power cord to the these ends, make cretin that the common or wight and the hot witch is black be connected respectively

Good luck and best regards Falco Mueller

Accidentally ripped powercord into half and it is discontinued all over internet.What are my options to fix it myself?


I would find an extension cord of similar diameter. Cut the "female" end off, and open your saw up. Connect the cut end of the new cord to the same colors ...

This should not be difficult.

How to replace a power cord on a B&D 7340 type 2 circular saw?


It's not difficult. Open the saw up, and the power cord is pretty much right there. Get a new power cord from B&D, that will be easiest.

No power to circular saw


Remove the part of the handle over the switch and have a multi meter handy. Plug the cord in and test for voltage where the cord goes into the switch. No power, replace the cord; power, go on. Have someone hold the swtich on and test for voltage coming out of the switch. No power, replace the swtich; no power, go on. Check the condition of the brushes and brush springs. They have to be in good contact with the armature to work properly. If the brushes are OK, you may have a problem with the armature or field. These are usually checked at a service center with equipment most people don't have. If you got this far and haven't found the problem, it may be better to get a new saw.

I know Sears used to carry replacement cords that fit most of their electric tools. It has been a few years since I got one , but I'm sure they still carry them. If not they should be able to refer tou to some place that does.

I need to replace cut electric chord on saw 6390-20


I would go to Milwaukeetool.com and download a breakdown for this tool. But all you have to do is remove the screws holding the handle assembly to expose the switch area and cord. I think they are a T-20 Torx, after removing the half make a note of the wiring before removing the old cord. trim the leads using the old cord as a guide and reinstall. what you want to do is when you reinstall the screws back them until you feel the first thread so you don't rethread it. These are thread forming screws and after a time they will strip out the threads. It is really quite simple

I have a craftsman model 315 circular saw i have to change power cord where do i put ground wire since it is a 2 prong cord? i have 14-2 gw to replace it with.


If the cord needs replacing because of a defect return it to Sears. Craftman tools are gauranteed virtually forever. I return a circular saw a few years ago agter useing it fo over 5 years and they replaced it, no questions asked.
