Wiring varible speed swith for a Makita JR3000V reciporcating saw

I bought a variable speed switch for the Makita JR3000V
but it wired differently then the original switch. The switch has four wire connections. The wring connections are labeled: load/bi-ristor, load/125 VAC, line/6A, and one labeled just line. I am assuming the load connections are for the power cord and the lines are for the wires going to the motor. Does it make a difference which lead is connected to each side of the switch?

The replacement switch, is it Makita and was it a direct replacement for the original part? That could make a difference. I looked at the schematics for this tool and they do not furnish the wiring codes but I think you are on the right track. To make sure though I would call Makitas tech support people at 1-800-4625482 and have a wiring explosion sent to you. Let me know if you still need more help and I will contact them or call a local dealer that I know.

How to changing switch

White and black from cord go to line (doesn't matter what side it's not polarity sensitive) and the field wires (the two remaining black wires) go to the load. Again it doesn't matter what side.

How do i replace the gears on a makita reciprocating saw

Expensive job. You have to replace the armature and the gear which retails around 110 pound alone you would be better buying a new one unfortunately.

Makita JR3000V stopped working

I would have checked the cord first. Cords are a high failure part because they always get bent and pulled and such. Some versions of the jr3000v had problems with field wires breaking right at the field terminal.

My Makita BHP451 Li ion battery drill periodically the varible speed does not work, ie. the button works as a on/off switch - any idea what's wrong. Thanks Bjarne

Bjarne, odds are the variable speed function of the trigger is failing. There are Makita repair centers that perform repair, and sell parts if you want to take it on as a DIY project. Before proceeding, I would make sure the warranty has expired. If it is still in warranty a Makita repair center should repair it for no charge.

I have a little bad news for you. Makita doesn't furnish their wiring schematics online and I checked a couple other sites and nothing but you can call 1-800-4625482 that is their free technical support line and they can get you one.
