Replacing the Front ribbon/cable

I need to replace the cable running to the face plate. I saw skill level five is needed (Is this out of ten?). Is there a place to read/see how to replace this? Mark

    I was looking for directions on how to take the deck apart. The ribbon wraps around a component, and I do not know what to take off to get at that piece.

It's not that hard, if you can find the ribbon cable online or from the manufacturer you've done the hardest part already.... just take the deck apart, disconnect the old ribbon cable from the main board, and practice reconnecting it first, then connect the new one. If you're good at tinkering and taking things apart it should be no trouble at all. Good luck!!

What would cause a poulan chain saw to quit running after about ten minutes of cutting

The only temperature sensitive part I can think of is the condenser. In most saws it is under the flywheel with the points. Some newer saws have an electronic ignition module. If that is the case the module must be replaced.

I have a Malita dual sliding compound miter saw LS1016LX. Trigger will not start saw after 5-10 cuts. When saw sits for 30 minutes, it runs again.

I'd contact a Makita dealer. I've had this saw for years without a single misfire on the trigger. Could be heat related, but that's a stretch. Here's their contact information:

Mitre saw gear problem

I would need to know what make the saw is. Most brands have a dealer locator on their websites. Alternatively contact your local power tool distributor or tool hire company and they might be able to get the part for you. If you are in or around S.E. London or Croydon visit either of our outlets. Maps etc on our website . When you contact your local dealer, remember to make a note of the make and model of your saw. If it is DeWalt there will sometimes be a type number aswell, and Bosch/Skill will have a ten digit identity code on the rating plate and that would be the best info to take (e.g. 1.604.321.742)

Need to know what level oil in my skill saw mag77 should be?

have the saw as level as possible and put in oil until it starts to run out on the bottom of thread. Make sure you use a worm drive oil, just any oil will not work properly.

How do you put the DeWalt DW367 circular saw back in its case??

Just figured it out ourselves: with case open and facing you, place the saw in, blade facing you. It needs to go down at an angle so the "leveler" is resting on the tlted portion of the case. Make sure the cord isn't hanging out.......took us about 1/2 hour to do it. Ours was a dewalt 368; next time we'll take a pic before taking tools out of their cases! hope this helps.

The motorized face plate only sits at the half-way

the flexible cable that goes from the face to the main motherboard is probably bad and needs to be replaced

Detachable face plate for DEHP47DH on and off buttons and other function buttons not working.

make sure the connections are clean on face plate and base make sure no grease or anything like that failing this then contact the makers or even place of purchase usually as long as you have the face plate and the whole unit they will replace the face for free but you might need to show them both as stolen ones people were getting the face for free so they stopped this so get in touch with makers or even place of purchase they should replace for you.

How old is device?

Have you tried pushing the face in whilst pressing it on further just in case the connections are not touching.

Do any buttons work?
