The blade is stuck in my DW 310 saw. The spring loaded collar will not move as appears the blade is not in the two top grooves? Thoughts to fix? Thx!


Does the motor hum when you pull the trigger? If so, check that the push tab for securing the shaft from turning while changing the blade is pulled out all the way. Sometimes fine saw dust can get inside and prevent the spring from pushing the tab back out all the way. If there is no hum, check the power source.

Cordless 18 volt lithium ion sawzall hums and clicks blade wont move


I don't know what model you have but Milwaukee sawzalls use a wobble shaft and wobble plate to turn the rotary motion of the armature into the reciprocating action of the blade. If you motor is working (hums?) but the blade won't move one or more of these parts are broken and hitting eacher (clicks?) inside the gear case. You or a repair center will have to take the gear case apart to find our what's broken and determine whether it's worth repairing.

My tablesaw will no longer run. I plug it in and turn it on, the blade partially moves and I hear a humming sound


The motor is receiving power, and that is the humming noise.
The humming sound also says the motor is overheating and will burn out.

Turn saw off.
Use hand and manually rotate blade to see if it rolls free.

For example on my saw, the blade barely turned because a bearing was rusted.
I soaked the bearing in wd-40 and 3-in-one oil and salvaged it.
Look for oil ports on each end of motor, and on bearings.
Clean pulleys and belt that connect blade to motor.

If your blade rolls free, and the motor shaft moves freely, then the motor winding has gone bad, so replace motor.

Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Hi! There is power to the unit....the blades don't move.


Had the same problem: when I turn on the trimmer, the motor would hum but the blades won't move.
What I did:
1. Sprayed a ton of wd40 between the blades
2. Took a screwdriver and kinda wedged it between the blades to get them unstuck. Also removed some guck between the blades.
And it worked!

InSinkErator Badger 5, 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal: It hums but doesn't work. The wrench moves freely ...


If the blades move freely with the wrench and stick and motor hums then it sounds like it is time to replace the unit. Have you tried the reset switch? If it is humming than it is probably not tripped but worth a try. Hope this helps.

Motor runs, but blades dont move


with engine off, take a screw driver and manually move the blades to make sure that they are not jammed. Then spray the blades down with wd-40 oil and they should move freely again.

Motor can be heard going but the blade wont spin!!


There is usually a pin in the shaft of the motor, that corrosponds with a slot in the fan blades, it sounds to me like either (a) the pin somehow came out, or (b) the slot in the blades is rounded. Hope this helps
