I replaced the batteries, laser still not working. What else can it be?
The only thing I can think of, is that you probably have a defective 373009000 laser.
Question: TS1352 Ryobi Miter Saw
My saw is making a grinding noise and the blade doesn't stop immediately when the trigger is released. Could this be related to bearings and can it be replaced by a non-professional with a fair amount of experience at repair?
Reply: TS1352 Ryobi Miter Saw
The break on your saw is made up of the armature, field, switch and brushes. Any of these can be the cause of the break not working. The field portion of your motor has a separate brake winding in it. When you release the trigger it sends current to the brake winding. The brake winding is wound reverse of the normal motor windings so it creates an opposite magnetic field which stops the armature and therefore the blade. I believe that your saw has problems with the armature and the field. I think that the "grinding" noise you are hearing is actually some arching between the armature and the field.
I hope this helps with your repair!
