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.

Skil saw stops I bump it it starts then it stops I bump it it starts


The two groves could be caused by the auto stop pin in the brushes but I would also check the brushes are not getting stuck in the brush holders.

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.

Saw seems dead, after 8 - 12 trigger pulls the saws turns on (sometimes) but after you release trigger its dead again???


You should check the brushes and cord first but it sounds like your trigger is shot, not an uncommon failure for this tool. With the cord plugged in, hold the trigger on in one hand and bend the cord around in several placed, especially near the boot and push and pull it in the tool. If it comes on, replace the cord. If the it doesn't react to this, check the brushes. Without knowing which model you have, they should be at least 1/4" long, evenly worn and shiney, not burnt, where they touch the armature. If these check out you need a new switch.

Reciprocating saw only works at certain angles


It sounds like the cord has a broken wire in it or there is a loose wire at the switch. Unplug tool and if you are comfortable in removing the handle halves look at the switch wiring and I pull gently on the wires from the cord to see if a can pull one out. Let me know if you still need assistance and I will go into more detail.

Reciprocating saw stops reciprocating


your missing a tooth on a large round gear in the gearbox.

when the gear on the engine rotates into the position where the little engine gear spins because there is no tooth to come into contact with the engine runs but the gearbox doesnt spin, hence no reciprocation, but engine runs.

if you bump the blade it will start going again, but when you cut it will stop offasionally in mid cut. you can repair this but stop using it the engine gear will be destroyed otherwise

I have a dewalt dw303 that you can use for parts, I need a new trigger or something the motor is dead and I found a new saw. go to craigslist.org, rochester ny tools section and look for dewalt dw303 that is my listing. for ten bucks ill sell you all the gears you need. i think it is close to the same model, i am sure it is the same gearbox.

try opening your gearbox, im positive that is what is wrong.

Cordless or cord saw Comparison


Cordless tools lose power as the battery drains, while corded tools deliver reliable, consistent performance with unlimited run time. Corded reciprocating saws range from less than 5 amps to 15 amps or more, with more than 10 amps providing optimal power for heavy-duty commercial use.
