Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure there is fresh fuel mix in the tank and be sure to shake the container thoroughly each time just before filling the tank to prevent oil starvation. Remove the spark plug and check for blue, snappy spark (plug gapped 0.020"). If weak or none, try a fresh plug. If no help, remove the left side cover to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Remove the ignition switch wire from the module coil and try for spark again. If still nothing, try setting the module pole gap by turning the flywheel magnets under the module poles, insert a thin business card into the gaps, loosen the module screws to allow the module to contact the magnets. Tighten the screws and rotate the flywheel somewhat to remove the card. Turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gaps don't close up at any point. Recheck for spark--if still nothing, replace the module using the above procedure. Assuming that the engine has good compression and the carburetor in not in trouble, it should start. Hope this helps!

Dewalt Model D304-04 reciprocating saw wont run. I plug it in, pull the trigger and it wont start. What am I doing wrong or what could the cause be?

Hi Fred:
- Confirm there is power in the plug.
- use continuity meter to check that there is a complete circuit through the saw.
- broken connection in plug?
- broken wire between plug and switch?
- switch not functioning?
- switch set between forward and reverse?
- Speed control potentiometer contacts dirty?
- Bad brushes?

Won't start when motor is warm. Saw for half hour and shut it off and it refuses to start again

this sure sounds as if it's an overheating problem , this causes the ign ckt to over heat and shut off the spark at the plug , id get a real good look at the cooling fins and make double sure theres no sawdust or other stuff in there blocking up the works , if you continue to run saw to overheat eventually it will damage the ign ckt to the point it wont come back on and saw wont run ,Period.

I use strong compressed air to blow out stuff stuck down in the ribs of saws(wear glasses )

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.
