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!!

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 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 www.lakedalepowertools.com . 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)
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.
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.
Check the ribbon cable the one connects the face to the main board,ussually that's where the problem is. You can get it from pacparts.com parts number is J84-0121-12
You need to have some soldering skills to replace it.
