    when you took the switch apart how many wires was on it?

  • mike42353 Oct 08, 2010

    is the switch a 2 position switch, on/off.
    do you have any more info on the 3 whites going to a box under the saw?
    the blacks are the hot and a switch breaks the hot.
    were all these wires connected to the switch?

    i am going to see if i can find a wireing diagrm for thei saw.
    here is a basic understanding. if you hook the black from the motor and the black from power cord together , and the hooked the 2 whites together the saw would run all the time. so if you had a 2 prong switch and hook a blact to one and the other black to the other prong the you can turn the saw on and off. i dont know what oll the other whites are that you have at this point or why you have a 4 prong switch.

Hi. I have a dw744 and the motor started to sputter/vibrate and spark a lot. How doe I know if I need to replace the brushes?


Not Much on saws but it is alot like a starter motor and if the Brushes wear down it will cause metal to metal contact with the armeture and will cause them to spark and soon wont work.

Where do i buy an arbour for dw744 table saw


If you have a type number of 4, an assembly will have to be replaced, not just the shaft. THIS COULD BE DIFFERENT IF YOU HAVE A DIFFERENT TYPE NUMBER. It can be purchased online through DeWalt, but verify your type number before ordering.

How can i get a guard for this table saw the dw 746


You can order them at www.dewaltservicenet.com.
The DW746 and DW744 use the same guard assembly, if you're talking about the hinged guard over the blade.

Cord got cut on my dewalt screwgun. dont know how to rewire to the trigger


Have you removed the old cord yet, if not make a crib sheet showing where the wires go. If the wires push into the switch use a staple and bend one of the long ends and push into hole and when pushing gently pull the cord wire out. Let me know if you need any other help

Dewalt dw744 motor runs slow and smokes, what parts need replacing?


probably whole motor, if the bearings started to seize up it could have caused the armature/field to burn or if you overloaded the tool the same thing would happen. Does the tool have a burnt electrical smell, if so the motor is burnt and the cost of parts might outweigh getting repaired, You can go to Dewaltservicenet.com and find out the prices and also you might want to call a Dewalt Factory Service Center and ask them about the MAX repair rate on this tool and they will fix everything for that price, no matter what.

I Have a Dewalt DC385 type 2 Reciprocating saw. I push the trigger and it does not work all of a sudden. Could the trigger unit be bad. How can I tell if it is bad, I just dont want to keep replacing...


REMOVE THE BLADE !!!! take the handle apart and lift out the switch. keep track of the lock slide button and how it is installed. unplug the switch wires. carefully touch the wires you just unplugged onto the battery terminals. these wires lead directly to the motor. BEWARE.. if the motor components are good , the saw will run at FULL SPEED. you only need to tap the wires, DO NOT jamb them onto the battery. If the motor runs then most likely the switch is bad. If you know how to use a continuity tester then you can also check the switch. Bad moter likely culprtet is the brushes are crapped out.

DW744 table saw


Balde movement up and down? If so, that would suggest worn bearings in teh gearbox. If they are worn there then they might also be worn in the motor. If this happens the armature will float up and down causing it to rub against the stator. You may be able to get the bearings sorted without needing any new motr parts. I beleive this saw uses an induction motor so beware if it does need replcing you might want to be sitting down when you get the quote.
