Question about Sears Craftsman 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw with LaserTrac and 5 Bonus Blades

7 1/4 B&D saw - blade stalls but motor continues to run

When the saw is put under a moderate to heavy load it will cut a few inches and then the blade stops but the motor continues to run without any noticable reduction in RPMs. When I back off the blade starts up again.

There should be a special washer between the bolt (that holds the blade on) and the blade. If the arbor has a flat side on it, then the washer should have a matching hole so that the washer cannot turn independently of the arbor. Or, some saws use a spring washer which is cupped and becomes flattened against the blade as the bolt is tightened. If you have the first type of washer, perhaps the bolt is just not tight enough. If you have the second type of washer, perhaps the washer is backwards. If you have neither type of washer, you need one.

My saw stops rotating during cutting


does the motor stop? If not the gears are worn between armature and spindle. If it does stop you could be applying too much pressure trying to cut with a blunt blade or there is an armature fault.

My saw will cut for 5 seconds and then the blade stops spinning. When I back the blade out it starts again and the process is repeated. It takes a long time to cut wood this way. What's the problem? Is...


I would suspect a combination of the two! You blade probably isn't sharp and your saws brushes are probably getting worn. The brushes are made of carbon and are pushed up against the rotor by a spring. As the brush wears down the spring doesn't put as much pressure on the brushes which means it will stop working when placed under heavy load.

Saw reset button keeps kicking after only a few minutes of use. Could the dust collection bag be creating a heat problem?


I would not think so, the reset is for thermal protection and I think that you have a problem with the motor stalling or under a heavy load. I would check to see how free the motor spins with being on. UNPLUG TOOL FIRST and turn blade by hand. Then to eliminate the dust bag remove it and just run the saw without cutting. Look into the throat plate area for a build up of debris that might be limiting movement.

My Craftsman 7&1/4 inch 12 amp Circular Saw(Model 315.108330) slips while cutting. The motor keeps spinning but the saw stops rotating. Can I Fix it?


Most circular 7-1/4 saws have a bolt and a compression washer that acts as a brake shoe that holds the blade secure but under dire circumstances will allow the blade to slip some rather than hold the motor shaft and allow burn out. The compression washer under your bolt has become worn and doesn't grip the blade securely. You can find a split washer that will fit under the blade and give you some more friction, or go to sears and order another compression washer for your saw.In the Sears Parts List found at: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Craftsman-Parts/Saw-Parts/Model-32018780/0247/0744410/50035950/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

This is common IF the blade clamping nut becomes loose... the blade will free wheel on the arbor after the motor stops. It can tear up the arbor so investigate this possibility immediately.

When cutting wood with band saw saw will cease up


This could have many causes...depending on the model of saw, the wood being cut, the blade you're using, etc. etc.
Check that the blade is correctly installed, up to tension, and sharp. Make sure the wheels run smoothly on their on, and under power. Check the horsepower of the motor, and make sure to keep the feed rate down within the motor's capacity. Finally, don't twist the work being cut to a smaller radius than the size blade will handle, or you will bind the blade in the cut.
If you are cutting wood with pitch or grain that is likely to be under tension, perhaps you need to insert a wedge into the cut to prevent the work from pinching the blade as it continues the cut.
I hope that leads to a solution. Sometimes all you can do is feed slowly and be patient...

Not cutting right - or at all


Depending on how much use the saw has gotten over the years the problem could be a very dull blade, worn out motor brushes, or a nearly worn out motor. The danger is that a power tool that is not working as it should is much more hazardous than a newer saw that is working properly.
