Question about Sears Craftsman 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw with LaserTrac and 5 Bonus Blades

1 Answer

My 7 1/4 in Craftsman circular saw stops running.

I was using my 71/4 in. Craftsman circular saw to cut tree stump. Some dirts or rock may have gotten into it. Although I had tried clean it, the saw stopped running. What can I do to have it working again?

    No, the blade can move freely. I suspect something electrical. Is there a fuse inside the circular saw? Thanks!

Is a 71/4 10amp circular saw capable of cutting 2x6 cedar


Yes. Suggestions:
- make sure you're using the least amount of extension cord possible to keep the motor cool
- use a sharp blade, prefferably carbide tipped
- don't force the saw through the cuts if the motor is bogging down slow down the cut speed.

Need a power cord for 71/4 circular 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.

Cs 400, first time cutting great, then the saw did not cut perfectly. Recently it worked poorly. When I push the saw a little bit hard against the log, the saw did not running(the engine is working)


suggest you sharpen the chain, sounds like it's dull like maybe the log you cut had been fallen on ground for awhile, this causes dirt build up in bark and acts just like cutting Dirt and we all know what that does to your chain...dulls it fast ! I learned from experience I cut an oak tree that was cut down for about 2 years when I got permission to cut it up,needless to say it had a lot of dirt in the bark! hope this helps you !

My Craftsman 7&1/4 inch 12 amp Circular Saw(Model 315.108330) slips while cutting. The motor keeps spinning but the saw stops rotating. Can I Fix it?


Most circular 7-1/4 saws have a bolt and a compression washer that acts as a brake shoe that holds the blade secure but under dire circumstances will allow the blade to slip some rather than hold the motor shaft and allow burn out. The compression washer under your bolt has become worn and doesn't grip the blade securely. You can find a split washer that will fit under the blade and give you some more friction, or go to sears and order another compression washer for your saw.In the Sears Parts List found at: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Craftsman-Parts/Saw-Parts/Model-32018780/0247/0744410/50035950/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

Not cutting right - or at all


Depending on how much use the saw has gotten over the years the problem could be a very dull blade, worn out motor brushes, or a nearly worn out motor. The danger is that a power tool that is not working as it should is much more hazardous than a newer saw that is working properly.
