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.

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.

Milwaukee sawzall problem.


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
