Craftsman Model 315.10721 Troubleshooting

The saw won't turn on

When plugged into a working outlet the saw won’t move when the trigger is pulled.

The powercord is broken

If the cord is cut or frayed, it will need to be immediately replaced due to electrical hazards. Disassemble the handle and make sure the ends of the power cord aren't frayed or disconnected. If they are not frayed or disconnected, then use a voltmeter to ensure the cord is still conducting; if not, consult the powercord replacement guide.

The saw blade is cutting too slow or not at all

When attempting to make a cut, the blade is unable to cut the material as intended or in a timely matter.

The blade is broken

Take a closer look at the scroller blade. If it has dulled or flattened out, please consult the blade replacement guide.

The saw will not pivot

When making a cut, the saw will not pivot and it will only cut in a straight line

The saw is in locked position

There is a possibility the saw is accidentally locked in the 90 degree cut position. For scroll cutting, the lock must be in the unlocked position for free rotation of saw bar. If the lock seems to stick, move the swivel knob from side to side to free the lock. Use sufficient forward pressure to permit the blade to cut freely and follow the scribed line with gentle rotation of swivel knob.

The blade bounces while cutting

When making a cut, the blade does not cut smoothly through the material and seems to bounce up and down.

The saw blade is not properly attached

Tighten the blade screws on each side where the blade attaches to the saw, and make sure the blade is fully inserted into saw.

If blade is properly attached and is still bouncing, the blade is dull. You will need to replace the blade; please consult the blade replacement guide.

The saw trigger is sticking

When pressure is applied to the trigger, the trigger either sticks in the depressed position, or the trigger does not move when pulled.

The trigger has debris caught in it

Check around the trigger and the trigger area for any dirt or debris that may be preventing the trigger from being depressed.

The trigger is broken

If there is not debris or dirt causing the trigger to not function properly, please consult the switch replacement guide.

Un Comentario

I need to take apart the body of the .10720 model to regressed the gears or any other greased parts. Storage in the heat has allowed the grease to melt and flow out the bottom seam of the saw. I have fixed the same problem on a drill before but it was much easier to dissasemble.
