Bad Switch on Sears Reciprocating Saw Model No: 900.271261 Part No: 147325-00

sears do not make items but use other manufacturers to make items with sears name on them
it is very possible that the switch is generic and will fit other makes of saws
you may have to go to an appliance repairs shop with your switch as a sample and see if that is the case and if possible they may be able to point you in the right direction as to where a switch can be purchased
Try e-bay , type in switch for reciprocating saw ( leave the brand off) and you may find the switch there under a different name

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?

Diagram need sawzall sears has an exploded view. You can (in firefox at least) right click and save the JPEG file so you have a copy. Also do a search for repair parts+make+model# and most of the sites will have an exploded view and the parts list but I haven't found a parts list that I could download. I have a dumpster-dive 172.171800 that $30 of parts fixed.

Where would I go to get a Craftsman reciprocating saw fixed, or determine if it can still be used. In Hartford County, CT area.

You should be able to check with any major sears store for information on repair center. I think K-Mart stores are also selling craftsmen tools so you might check with them. Hope this helps you. Yhanks

Need a switch module for dewalt dw306 reciprocating saw

I had a similar problem with a switch on a Craftmans wire welder that they said was no longer available. I looked at the switch and there was a manufacture number and logo of the manufacturer. I called the manufacturer to see if they still made the switch and the manufacturer sent me a sample of my switch at no cost. Check to see if there is a manufacter name or logo you can look up on the internet and contact them directly and sometimes they will help you out as Sears was no help to me.
