Change blade on Dewalt DC385 XRP reciprocating saw

The button is for changing the shoe position, you should find a lever on the opposite side that you need to lift up on to release the blade. You might be able to get a owners manual at Dewaltservicenet.com and in the middle of the page towards the bottom type in your model number and it will direct you how to download one. Let me know if you need more help

Is there a fix for heavy vibration

Sadly dewalts vibrate a lot! They don't have the counter balance the the Milwaukee and Makitas do. My guess is it's fine. I'd check the four screws that hold the gear case to the body regularly to make sure they stay tight.

How do i change blade

Open the yellow tab on the side of the blade guard and lift the blade out. Install a new on and close the tab. If the blade has been damaged, it may need to be pried off the locating pin at the attachment point.

How to open the front housing of dewalt dc385

press release button and remove shoe on front of saw. Remove 2 screws on front end. Slide off rubber covering. To open gearbox remove 4 screws and pull off. Note, once open yo probably have to replace the gasket. If saw is jammed, try spray a penetrating oil in and tap shaft with a hammer using a wood dowel for contact. You can remove the 2 rubber plugs from the gear casing and pump in grease without removing the cover.Stephen Brown

Blade not releasing

Hi,
Getting a broken blade our of the sawzall chuck can be difficult and require some ingenuity and patience...
Sometimes there be enough blade left so that you can grab it with a needle nose pliers... othertimes it is flush and that makes it more difficult... holding the chuck in the release position and rapping the saw against a table or with a hammer can jiggle the piece out....of course you have the chuck pointed down while you do that...
Also moving the piece around a bit with a stiff wire and also soaking the chuck and blade with WD-40 helps also....
Usually it will take a combination of these things and some persistance to get the job done...

Installing the blade

There will be a small lever on the side, up front, where the blade goes. You should be able to lift the handle up and slide the blade into the slot at the head of the saw. Once you lower the lever, it will lock into place. Make sure you also have the right saw blades as some do not fit right. Hope this helps.

The saw blade does not engage when trying to cut

Probably shot. You could buy parts, but now worth the time. Probably stripped the gears.
