    I tried using a small screwdriver. I'll try the paper clip next.

Using a paper clip straighten one end and insert next to wire and push down and while doing so lift the wire out.

Where do you wire power cord on skil circular saw 5400 to switch


Very easy to tell the short wires go to the cord side. The longer ones go to the motor. The wire will be same color as the cord wires. They will come from the back of the switch as it sets in saw.

Skilsaw wormdrive stops working but if I wiggle the cord at the handle it sometime starts and will run until I take my finger off the trigger. Now it won't start at all even after wiggling the co


Replace the cord. Cords get internal breaks by the handle or boot because that's where they have the most bending movement. The wires break inside where you can't see them. When you wiggle the cord the connection is remade, usually with a spark hot enough to hold them together for a short time. When the saw turns off and the cord moves again the weak point breaks again. You can test this by pluggin in the cord and checking for voltage where the cord attaches to the switch.

How to open replacement switch for 5250 skilsaw


Sometimes the wires are push fit and are held in with a sprung wire. If they are on this one try using a very fine jewlers screwdriver or stiff piece of thin wire to release the wires in the switch.

On a skilsaw 5150, I'm just trying to see if it


Hello, No such thing as a "dumb question"... everybody learns something for the first time. The safety is a button located just behind the trigger mechanism ( about where your thumb would be during operation) and must be pushed prior to squeezing the trigger. Since it is a selling feature of any item to have an operator's manual with the item, I am attaching the link to the english version.

No power when i squeeze the trigger on the hd77


Troubleshoot the problem. It could only be a few things: 1) defective trigger/switch, in which case you can replace it by getting the part from a specialty tool store; 2) the cord itself, either where it plugs into the saw or at the plug end there may be a loose wire; 3) you've accidentally cut or nicked the cord--easily done--and there is a severed wire.

I sawed the power cord in half...! It was a skil saw brand But obviously I am 'unskilled'... The saw cost about $65. Can this be repaired or should I get a new saw...?


Yes it can be repaird. No offense, but can you do it? Take handle appart, may have torx screws, and remove old cord. You can buy a new exact replacement cord or a generic cordset to replace. Check wire size on your old cord.

The switch is intermittent. The saw has #5375 on the nameplate. I t has the two-handed safety switch where you have to push the red one with one hand and squeeze the trigger with the other hand. Sometimes...


Simply the switch will need replacing and this can be obtained from the mfr or you can get it repaired at a local tool repair center. Get it replaced asap.

What you are describing sounds like the power is being interrupted somewhere. In my experience, this is usually casued by a bad switch. Try replacing the trigger switch.
