First thing to check would be the fan speed resister, fan(blower-motor)relays, and possibly a bad ground. Start at switch on the dash and go to the relays and resister next.

If the fuse is now good then you could have tripped the safety and need to reset it, if it has one installed. Or the power cord or the motor are the problem.

If you didn't smell hot or burning electronics smell then it will most likely be the safety aka blade or finger guard. If you did smell hot electronics then it may have burned the power cord or seized the motor. Your user manual will show you where and how to reset the safety. Any local repair shop or tool shop should be able to guide you through this as well as pointing you towards a repair shop if needed.

I've stalled mine a few times and have just reset the fuze and away it goes again. It sounds like you might have done a bit more to yours.

Where do i get new brushes from for my power devil circular saw pdw5008/16

Suggest you type "Power Devil Circular Saw" into your search engine, and your computer should show you a list of dealers that sell these, and maybe even service these.
Give them a call on the phone, or write them an e-mail.
God bless your efforts.

Dewalt Model D304-04 reciprocating saw wont run. I plug it in, pull the trigger and it wont start. What am I doing wrong or what could the cause be?

Hi Fred:
- Confirm there is power in the plug.
- use continuity meter to check that there is a complete circuit through the saw.
- broken connection in plug?
- broken wire between plug and switch?
- switch not functioning?
- switch set between forward and reverse?
- Speed control potentiometer contacts dirty?
- Bad brushes?

Dell computer wont start up

Tough one, but inspect the motherboard for a blown capacitor. You could test the power supply with a simple voltmeter. Not to mention simply seeing anything lit with the case open while powered one. gl

I have a 800 hdx grinder and it just stop running no power to the switch

The most likely cause is the plug fuse. Open the plug and check the fuse for continuity. If there's no continuity replace the fuse. If the fuse is ok check that the wiring hasn't come loose. I hope that solves your problem.

I have a power devil 2000 watts chainsaw. It is gone completely dead, nothing happens when I try to start. Pwer is ok checked fuses everything.

First thing to check is the motor brushes--they should be fairly long and have springs that are brass colored and not collapsed. Try wiggling the cord near the plug with the switch on and the plug into power. If the saw starts and stops, cut the cord back an inch or so and replace the plug. The switch itself may have failed--check it with an ohmmeter--it should read 0 ohms when the switch is operated (power plug pulled!). Make sure the outlet you are using has live power. It's possible that the internal wiring in the motor has a broken connection (from vibration). Hope that some of this helps!
