Milwaukee sawzall problem.
 
i recently got a milwaukee 6520-21 sawzall from a friend. However when i turn it on the motor runs but the reciprocating shaft does not move. Anyone know what the problems is. I want to get it repaired but milwaukee doesnt give estimates. Please help and any suggestions would be okay.

Never had mine apart but my guess is inside it's going to have a drive linkage like the old steam engine wheels. Something is either broken or disengaged in there.

carefully dismantle it and see what the problem is. the pin could have come loose or is broken.

Here's the schematics and a few technical notes for that model. It won't tell you how to fix it...but will help you figure out what's going on. I have an older Milwaukee...and that thing has taken a beating...good saw.

pkwon5--I have an older Milwaulkee Sawzall that was giving me multiple problems a few years back. I called a DeWalt Service Center and talked to them and they told me about a rebuild plan they have which I used. I took the tool to the center and they went completely through it, new brushes, new quick change blade lock, a new trigger, and a few other things, washed, waxed, and polished. Total bill- -$99. The pricing was quoted up front no matter what was wrong. AND it had a new 90 day guarantee. I thought it was a good deal, it's still running strong. Thanks, David
