Saws - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Only checking the circuit with a multimeter will find the fault and that means the saw will need at least partially dismantling.

Look underneath.
Turn handle loose to shaft? Shaft mot spinning.
Loose nut/bolt shaft disconnected from gear.
Was dropped, gear broken.
Belt broken?

If you can turn the handle and there is resistance but it turns. You probably had a bolt come undone.

This seller on eBay might be of some help. He is a supplier of motor brushes and had the odd ones that I needed.

Go on eBay and search for optosteel.

Sounds like the rubber stopper fit the guard fell off or broke. There should be a threaded hole on the outside of the saw body. Contact Ryobi for a replacement guard stopper and screw?

The green wire is the ground and connects to the rounded pin on the plug. The red wire connects to the 120V power and the black (or white) wire is the neutral.

First, there is no blade lock button on the Skil model 5150. I called the Skil customer service and they emailed me the exact manual for this circular saw. The method I used to loosen a VERY TIGHT blade stud was: spray with WD-40, imbed the blade in scrap wood, set Skil wrench (usually found in back of foot under handle) on so it could be struck going in counter-clockwise direction. Use hammer to strike handle of wrench a couple of times. To replace blade, finger-tighten blade stud, then use wrench to tighten 1/8 turn or (45°).
