Ryobi Circular Saw

I bought a secondhand Ryobi circular saw and need to replace the blade but when I turn the nut to release the blade the armature seems to turn also. Am I doing it wrong ro is there an easy way to do it?

Saw stopped working. changed brushes. still not working.just dead.blade turns ok.not even a click


These are notorious for burning out armatures.
The replacement process is pretty involved, I would not attempt unless you are comfortable.
Remove the brushes
Remove the 3 Screws hold the motor assy to the saw
Remove the screws holding the motor housing together.
Separate the housing and you should be able to see right away if the armature is burnt (many times the windings actually blow apart)

Often when the armature burns out it also melts the brush holder assy - I would recommend replacing it as well.
If the armature appears fine then I would lean toward the switch. Makita BSS611 18V LXT Lithium Ion 6 1 2 Circular Saw Parts

Macallister chop saw blade problem, the motor runs but when half way through cutting wood the blade stops ?


I'm not sure if you have a chop saw or circular saw. Either way, it sounds like the nut and washer are not tight enough to hold the blade. If you have a circular saw clockwise will tighten the nut and washer onto the blade and hold it in place. Most chop saws are a left hand thread and then you would turn the nut counter clockwise to hold the blade tighter. The blade wobbles because it is not tight.

Remove blade on circular saw ks865. motor turns when nut is turned thus unable to undo. Blade cannot turn because it has a screwdriver in the hole provided. Presumable the nut and washer is a bit loos


Take the saw to a bike repair shop. They have super thin wrenches to fit behind the blade and the motor that will hold the armature still while you loosen the nut on the front.

I hava a 7 1/4 circular saw model # 5250. The blade broke off and we can't get the bolt loosened enough to replace the blade. Any ideas on how to get bolt off?


If you have no way to prevent the motor from turning when you try to remove the blade bolt, you are going to have to immobilize the armature to get it off. Remove the cap on the motor housing so you can remove or relieve the spring pressure on the brushes. Then remove the motor housing with the field, leaving the armature attached to the blade guard/transmission assembly. Now you can safely hold the armature while turning the blade bolt.

To remove the circular saw, which way do you turn the nut hold the blade on the saw?


For any saw blade or grinding wheel, the rule is this. Pushing against the points of the teeth should be the direction that tightens the nut. So you must loosen it in the same direction that the blade spins. For example, if your saw blade is on the right side of your saw, then the blade spins counterclockwise, and the wood pushes against blade clockwise - so you turn it counterclockwise to loosen it (which is in the same direction that the blade spins.). If the blade is on the left side of the saw, you loosen it clockwise. Good luck, Al K

How do I change blade on Ryobi W-660 circular saw. I put some WD-40 on bolt, but it doesn't budge. To loosen, I turn clockwise?


I can't find that model number listed but generally a circular saw is standard thread, the mitre saw us left hand and a worm drive is also left hand thread.

Ryobi 18v circular saw owners manual - blade is loose!


Usually there is a button to press that locks the shaft arbor and then you use a wrench to tighten OFTEN is a left hand thread!

Check for lock button behind the blade guard toward the motor.

How do i change the circular saw blade on my saw? because i cant get the blade out to swap it as its blunt and the blade is now blunt


After removing the blade bolt and the outer flange you will need to fully retract the lower guard (remove battery) and sometimes wiggle the blade but it will come out.
