blow it out and spin the motor by hand you may have saw dust blocking the brushes. If that's not it check the brushes to see if they have life left in them. If not that check the cord for an open with a volt ohme meter. Hope that helps!
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...
At the base of the blade where it attaches in the saw you will see a round in shape with ridges fixture. Turn it so the slot is in line with the blade. Then you will be able to remove the blade. If the fixture does not turn, move the blade up and down while you turn the fixture.
