elecrical problem 315212300 Craftsman Compound miter saw

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your saw and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 315212300 and if your saw if not working it possible that the field assembly has failed or the switch has failed. if you having a multimeter and are comfortable using test for power at the field assembly (item 14) while pressing and depressing the switch (item 12). If you get power to the motor that would indicate that the switch is good and the motor may have failed. If you have further questions please resubmit your question for further information. I hope this information helps you.

Thank you for your question on the blade hitting the throat plate.

I believe this model number 315.212300 is a miter saw?

Are we talking about the same product?

It is okay for the saw blade to hit the plastic throat plate on the table.

If you replace the throat plate the throat plate does not have an opening in it and after you install it you use the blade to slowly cut the kerf slot in the plate, and so the gap in the plate is only as wide as the kerf of the blade.

Is the saw blade hitting any metal parts?

Please let me know if the blade is hitting metal.

Thank you for the update on the saw hitting the metal frame of the miter saw. Is it possible that the depth stop has come loose and the blade is going to deep into the frame? There is a depth stop adjustment screw on the back side of the saw motor on the top of the frame that you will have to adjust so the saw does not cut as deep. Look at the image below to see if adjusting this screw will help solve your problem. Sam A.
