    How far back did you cut the cord? If you suspected the cord to be the problem, the point of failure is usually right where the cord exits the saw, so you would have to disassemble at least the handle of the saw and replace the entire cord. You can usually re-use the strain-relief rubber jacket that protects the cord in this vulnerable area.

Erratic starting circular saw

Sounds to me like you have a bad cord. Clamp the saw to a workbench so that it can start and run safely without you having to hold it. Put tape or a wire tie around the trigger to hold it in. THEN plug it in. Then move the cord around, especially near where it enters the saw. If the saw starts and stops intermittently you have confirmed the bad cord. Good luck.

Tile saw wont start. It's brand new. Is there some sort of safety device.

The first thing you should check is the GFCI switch on the power cord. All tile saws have one because of the water involved with cutting tile. It should have a test and reset button on it, press the reset button to get power to the saw motor. Some bigger saws also have a reset button on the motor itself for overload issues. Check for that if the GFCI reset doesn't work.

Cut off saw stopped working cord has power could it be bushings?

more likely it is the brushes, there should be two plastic plugs on the side of the motor case with slots for a screwdriver. remove the plugs and take the brushes out. they should have a replacement number on them if not the user manual may list them

While checking the intake tube the power cord got on the wrong side of the cord so when I turned the saw on it cut the power cord. Can I get that replaced?

Yes, it will require that you "crack" the case, but it isn't that difficult to do. Suggest wire ties so that you don't have to do the replacement very often.

Not cutting through wood. Cuts are diminishing.

Sounds like the wood your cutting through is to hard for your battery powered saw....try one with a cord they work much better, especially for hardwood's.

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.
