SOURCE: DEWALT DW938 18VOLT CORDLESS SAWZALL can it use

As long as the voltage of the battery is the same as the tool, the tool won't mind if the power is coming from a NiCd or lithium battery. You do have to have a charger that works with lithium batteries to charge them up. Chargers that can charge lithium batteries can also charge NiCd and NMH batteies. NiCd chargers are not always programmed to detect when lithium batteries are full and may continue to charge them to the point of melting or starting on fire.

I have a dewalt 18v sawzall dc385 type 2. It only runs at half speed. What's wrong?


Hard to tell without inspecting it, or more specific details. First things if check are the batteries reliability; then whether the contacts on both the battery, and tool are clean. If the contacts are filthy, scrap or sand the contacts lightly with an Emery file.

If it's not that, then it would have to be taken apart cleaned and inspected for excessive wear, or an electrical fault.

Replacing blade assembly on a dewalt 18v Reciprocating Saw Sawzall


Remove the foot, remove the boot (and yellow lever), pull shaft out all the way (so you have more room to work with), remove the spring clip from the clamp block, remove the lever and ball, the clamp block will then slide off once the wire clip that wraps around it is removed.

DW938 only works when I bump the underside, forearm and for only moments.


could be quite a few things but it is obviously a loose connection in the electrical system, I would suggest going to dewaltservicenet.com and downloading a parts schematic before removing anything. I am thinking the battery or switch but try another battery first and look at the contacts for dirt or arcing. Let me know if you need more assistnace.

I have a DW938 and I cannot get the blade to lock into place seems like there is no lock at all.


Hi, If you look at the end where the blade goes in, on the right hand side (as holding it for use in your hands) you should see a yellow lever. First take out the battery, each and every time you change the blade. Lift up the lever, wear some gloves to protect your hand and pull the plade straight out. Push in the new blade with the teeth pointing down, and push the yellow lever down. You can replace the battery once you have completed the above. Hope that was of help to you.

What is the problem when a dewalt reciprocating saw (cordless) losses power


I am assuming you are refuring to the battery life. To be honest with you it is not a new problem. The Sawzall uses more power than the battery can store, so there don't last.

If this is a new problem for you that you are noticing less power with fresh batteries., They could be bad batteries. Barrow someones, if you can and see.

I hope this helps you. Please let me know if you have any further questions or if that this did help you.
