SOURCE: Change blade on Dewalt DC385 XRP reciprocating saw

The button is for changing the shoe position, you should find a lever on the opposite side that you need to lift up on to release the blade. You might be able to get a owners manual at Dewaltservicenet.com and in the middle of the page towards the bottom type in your model number and it will direct you how to download one. Let me know if you need more help

SOURCE: Reciprocating saw stops reciprocating

your missing a tooth on a large round gear in the gearbox.

when the gear on the engine rotates into the position where the little engine gear spins because there is no tooth to come into contact with the engine runs but the gearbox doesnt spin, hence no reciprocation, but engine runs.

if you bump the blade it will start going again, but when you cut it will stop offasionally in mid cut. you can repair this but stop using it the engine gear will be destroyed otherwise

I have a dewalt dw303 that you can use for parts, I need a new trigger or something the motor is dead and I found a new saw. go to craigslist.org, rochester ny tools section and look for dewalt dw303 that is my listing. for ten bucks ill sell you all the gears you need. i think it is close to the same model, i am sure it is the same gearbox.

try opening your gearbox, im positive that is what is wrong.

SOURCE: lubrication and maintenance reciprocal saw DeWalt

Before you attempt any of this I would recommend going to Dewaltservicenet.com and see what the inside of this tool looks like. It appears that you need to remove part of the front gearcase to get into the lube. The back e.g. brushes is not that big of a deal. If there is a Service Center near you they have a Max repair rate that they will fix anything on this saw at a preset firm price and if it is less that is what they would charge.

SOURCE: 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.

I have a Dewalt DC385 Reciprocating saw, when I hold it with the blade down or level the saw will not work but when I have the blade pointed upwards it works fine. I don't think it is the trigger...


I would look at the battery contacts first for burnt/discolored contact, if so clean with something like a pencil eraser, look at the contacts on the tool also. If these are acceptable then I would think a loose wire inside the handle area is causing. Before disassembly hold tool level and GENTLY tap with a soft hammer to see if you can get it to work and that would be a first indication of a bad connection

Can I use a dewalt 18 volt dc9098 battery on the dc385 Saw?


If you have the handle disigned for the lithium battery becareful using the 9096 battery as it moves in the handle a lot and can hit the terminal on the switch wrong and bend it or break it. Also it will get a lot of vibration when running and because it doen't have the support that it needs for a 9096 it wiill likely brak a contact on the switch eventually. the factory does say they work in any tool however.

    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.
