Vinyl flooring is very durable depending on how it is installed. If they are individual pieces that have have glue on the back then i would say no. I have found that Pergo is more durable and has a nicer scratch resistance but can be a little more expensive. Talk with your local Home Depot flooring professionals and let them know your concerns.
The first thing you should check is the GFCI switch on the power cord. All tile saws have one because of the water involved with cutting tile. It should have a test and reset button on it, press the reset button to get power to the saw motor. Some bigger saws also have a reset button on the motor itself for overload issues. Check for that if the GFCI reset doesn't work.
You can install tile over tile. However here are the risks. The new tiles will require at least 3/16" of tile adhesive UNDER the tiles when put in place after they have been pressed into position. Additionally the trim around the tiles willhave to be removed and elevated the distance of the tile thickness and the 3/16" grout distance. The tiles if on the second floor of a home will easily losen due to the expansion and contraction of the home and the difference in the 2 types of tiles expansion and contraction rates.
It is not difficult to remove old tiles. You use a flat bar type scraping tool and the old tiles usually will pop right up off the floor. You will have to break maybe 2 tiles to get started but after that they are easy to remove.
My experience in my own fully tiled in all rooms 2900 sq ft home in the tropics is that I have to remove the old tiles as over time the new tiles losen on top of the old tiles. I have tried it several times and have had at least 1 tile come loose each time.
Its either the speed of the blade ( mine came with its speed at half rate), or its the crappy blade they give you with the saw. If a cut is bowing your blade is having a tough time with material. This often happens with tough porcelain tiles and not using a porcelain blade.
try paint thinners , but before you do any thing you need to call the workman to see what brand of glue he has used.or to come out and clean it off for you or to see if thinners will work , it normally does but when i do resturant kichens out any spillages of glue is removed straight away.you will need to use polish cleaner after the thinners to stop any further marks appearing
