The fuse is more than likely, fine.
Instead, check the carbon brushes.
Once you have dis-assembled the unit, you will see the way the springs hold them in.
If you can't find the brushes, chances are, they've desintagrated into micron thick diamonds.
(Unfortunately, they're worthless diamonds lol)
Hope that helps the problem.

Can i cut metal with this saw

Please share the make and model of the saw, however, the cutting of metal depends largely on the kind of blade.
Metal cutting blades have both a different "set" of teeth and number of teeth per square inch.
You will also be getting different teeth for different kinds of, and thickness of, metals.
By and large, the thinner the metal, the more teeth per inch.
Your motor speed will also affect how well your machine will cut metal.
God bless your efforts.

It is simple to fix this. Take out the switch and open the switch. The contacts are stuck. It takes little to open the contacts. You may need to smooth contacts off with emery paper. It need to do the same. It works fine after. The difficult thing is to open the handle and get the switch out.
