Question and Answers

Q:

Need to remove the saw blade. 315.11800

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I do not see a spindle lock on this circular saw. The easiest way to remove the blade is with an impact wrench, but if you don't have one, you can use the method below.

The best way to hold the blade is to prepare a piece of 2 x 6 beforehand, and keep it around just for the purpose of removing blades. You set your saw at about 1/4", and drop it into the 2 x 6, (Running) cutting a small groove about 2" long.

Now, when you want to change a blade, you simply lower the blade another 1/8 to 3/16 inch deeper, and set it down in that groove (not running). A little pressure downward on the saw will keep the blade from turning, and will keep the saw fairly stable while you whack the wrench.

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

I have a circular saw model 31511800. The replacement switch, part number 2-615959-01, has no wires. How do I replace it?

A:

You need to remove the original wires from the switch and install them on the new switch. If you need to replace the original wires, you have to purchase the wires locally and install them.

If you are not comfortable making the repair yourself, you can take the saw to a Sears Parts and Service Center or a Sears Retail Store for repair.
