The front bearing on my DW938 Type 3 has failed. The armature shaft is press fit into the bearing and the bearing is press fit into the gear case cover. Any tricks to removing/replacing that bearing without an arbor press and special fixtures?
I think the spring is bad. it looks a little bent. i just ordered that and some other parts that came apart. Although im not sure how to put them together. can anyone help with any suggestions, or previous solutions. i would appreciate it.
My saw seemed to "freeze up" and I could detect no sound of the motor when the switch was pulled, and, of course, the saw blade wasn't moving. I tried to move the blade by hand and it wouldn't budge.

I disassembled the saw, found nothing out of the ordinary, and the gear shaft input/gear box now seemed to move freely.

I tested the switch by putting a jumper cable across the battery inputs and found continuity across the brush leads when I pulled the switch. I did also find variable resistivity so it looks like the variable speed potentiometer (if that's what is inside the switch module) is working.

After reassembling the saw, I got no response from the motor when I pulled the switch.

This stumps me. The only thing I can figure out is a bad armature. Is there a good way to test it?

Check for a burnt smell on the armature. Usually when it quits working it burns up and this will be detected by smell. Check brushes too. Look at the bottom of them where they contact the armature to check if they are bad.

Hi johnDC,
Here's a good way to troubleshoot that model saw.First remove both leads off the link removed a continuity meter check for continuity across the leads .If you have continuity across your leads then most likely you have a switch problem.If you don't have continuity across your leads follow each lead back to the brushes and across your armature until you find the open circuit. Though armatures do go bad on DC tools its rather rare occurrence.That model saw had problems with the brush connectors burning and melting causing that problem.It also had some problems with the brush spring mounts breaking taking the need pressure off the brush but you wouldn't notice it unless you look closely. Hope this helps.Good luck.

Question: Dewalt DW938 Shaft Replacement

molson7376

My buddy dropped off his dw938 type 2 reciprocating saw because the quick release had fallen off and he lost the pieces. I ordered the pieces from you but I couldn't figure out how they went together (not having seen it together) until I noticed that he had broken off one of the arms on the shaft. :( I took the transmission off but can't figure out how to get the shaft off of the reciprocator.... do you have to take off the nut on the drive shaft to get the motor end out???? How do you hold it without breaking something? And lastly do you have a picture of the blade holding assembly together? I might be able to figure it out once I get the shaft. Thanks in advance for your help.

Yes, you have to take the nut off the shaft that sits under the black cup in the front. I think it comes off clockwise. I use an impact driver to brake it loose. As for the blade clamp I'll see if I can post a pick.

Thanks for the help, Dale. The nut does come off clockwise and the impact wrench was a good tip, taking care not to over do it. After getting the new shaft I was able to figure out all the places for the parts and it's as good as new. Thanks again and Have a Great Day!
