How To Test And Wire A Switch On A Sawzall 6509-21 (SER 962E)

Sawzall is no longer running. Cord tested fine and I can detect voltage on the load side when switch is on. I do not know if the voltage on the load side is enough or even if the switch can prevent full voltage to the load maybe a poor contact or something. Motor has new brushes also.

I have a 1984 Shasta 2100 . There is a 110 volt receptacle on exterior. There is less than a volt going to it. All other recepticals are fine. I have replaced the recpit all.

is this when the shasta is plugged into a 110 volt hookup or are you running a generator try turning everthing off and taking a 110v extension cord and plugging it into the plugin in question then go inside try any of the 110 v lights tv plugs ect is there connection there ok then plug is working what about breakers fuse ect. you can take the battery loose and turn everything off take a car battery hook 2 wires to it,(2wires) plug one into the one side of plug (not ground) and hook the other up to a wire hooked to the ground' then go inside take a 12 volt test light try and find if the voltage front that side is at fuse box if so note it ',if not switch the wire you hooked to the other plugin prong hole (not ground) do same test inside with test light okay is voltage there you can assume something from such measurements but not from the 1 volt it is inconclusive as to whether running a new wire is necessary or not

01 pt cruiser right high beam light won't work.

In the diagram for headlamps, the top wire is voltage, the bottom wire is ground. You can use a test light to check voltage and ground. To test ground, one end of test light touches battery voltage the other end touches ground wire terminal, if the lite comes on, the ground is good enough to lite the test light. You know how to check voltage with test light, correct?

Does 6509-31 sawzall have thermal overloads

No the 6509 does not have a thermal overload.
Start by checking the brushes & brush springs then test the switch & cord
It is possible you burnt the armature out but brushes, switch, or cord is more likely.

Why do i have to bypass my fuel pump relay

I look at the relay as two different circuits, the load side of relay is that line with arrowhead, when relay is energized that line moves to other terminal, you can see voltage to load side of relay comes from fusible link. That circuit goes through inertia switch, then to the pump. Then you have the control side of relay, left side in the diagram, that side has to have voltage and ground, voltage comes from eec power relay and that circuit is grounded by the pcm.

How to put a new cord to a sawzall?

you can buy a replacement cord from just about any shop or go to for an exact replacement. UNPLUG tool and remove the handle half, make note of the wiring, if the ends of the cord are soldered you will need a paper clip to release them from the switch, just slide the clip next to the wire and PULL GENTLY to remove, Solder the new ends using the old cord as a template and when inserting pull gently to make sure the wire end seated into the switch. Reinstall the handle half and test.

Have a kenmore stove, and a code of F93 is coming up. What is the solution?







If lock motor runs:

1. Test continuity of wiring between EOC and lock switch on lock motor assy. Repair if needed.

2. Advance motor until cam depresses the plunger on lock motor switch. Test continuity of switch contacts. If

switch is open replace lock motor assy.

3. If motor runs and switch contacts and wiring harness test good, replace the EOC.

If lock motor does not run:

1. Test continuity of lock motor windings. Replace lock motor assembly if windings are open.

2. Test lock motor operation by using a test cord to apply voltage. If motor does not operate replace lock motor


3. If motor runs with test cord check continuity of wire harness to lock motor terminals. If harness is good replace

the EOC.

Sawzall quit working

With an ohm meter check the pins where the cord plugs in. Pull the trigger and check for a reading. If that's ok, then do the same with the power cord for a reading from the plug to the terminals on the other end. My guess is that you will need a new cord. Do Not Patch a power cord!! Frankster016

Older whrilpool dryer

make sure the green wire is connected like in the picture. this connects directly to the neutral, if it is disconnected when you connect a 3 wire cord then this problem you are having will happen.
