Question about Ryobi Circular Saw W/Dual Laser
You either have a break in the cord or the switch is open (broken electrical circuit). Sometimes the cord will get pinched or wound and the wires inside will break. A quick way to test a cord is to crimp the cord in your hand the entire length from the plug to the handle while holding the switch in the on position. If there is a break somewhere crimping the cord should make contact for a couple of seconds and you will get some power to the saw. The best way to check is to use a multi meter to check the continuity of the cord. You will have to remove the switch from the housing and use your meter on the cord. Set your meter to the ohms function and test the continuity of the load and line wires. (Touch one lead of the meter to the blade and the other to the corresponding wire that goes into the switch. Hint the polarized blade side - wide side- is the white wire and the smaller blade is the black wire.) If you have continuity through the wire you can check the switch next. Locate where the cord wires go into the switch and the other two wires that come out. Test at these two points while depressing the switch. If you have continuity in the switch and the cord you need to check the carbon brushes to see if they are worn or broken. If you need any assistance please post back and I will help.
