First, check and make sure that a small piece of a saw blade is not broken off inside the blade mount. If a piece of blade is not broken off in the blade mount, I suspect the pins are not moving outwards when the bushing is rotated. The pins are likely stuck. I would try spraying WD40 in the blade mount and then let it soak awhile. After soaking awhile, rotate the bushing several times to work the pins loose. If the pins will extract when turning the bushing, you will have to disassemble the saw to access the plunger assembly. You might want to try using a small slot tip pocket screwdriver in between the pin and try to work the pin loose. If you're not able to get the pins to loosen, I recommend taking the saw in for repair.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand your dilemma with the broken blade flush with the holder.

Have you tried pointing the nose down and turning the blade lock counterclockwise and holding it there while tapping the shoe down on the bench surface to see if you can jolt it out?

Have you tried a magnet with the similar process?

Short of those two suggestions I you may have to take the saw apart to get it out.

Let me know if you get the shank of the blade out that way, and if not, I will be happy to help you to take the saw apart.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I have the same problem, only mine broke off farther down in the tooless blade clamp. I have tried shaking and bumping it out, but it won't budge. I know that taking it to a service center will end up costing me as much as a new reciprocating saw will cost. Except for the jam, the tool operates just fine. How do you take the clamp apart to get the broken piece out? Ken

Q:

blade retention for recip. saw 32017175 Craftsman Reciprocating saw

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your blade keeps falling out of your reciprocating saw. I did look into the model number you have provided and it sounds to me like the pin that keeps the blade in is getting lose or stuck and not keeping the blade on. The pin comes out when there is no blade located in the shaft. It then gets pushed in to allow the blade to be installed and then it gets pushed back in to connect through the Bush. I would recommend taking the front end of the saw apart and checking the pins and bush. You can view the diagram on searspartsdirect.com. The bush is key number 66 and the pins are 59, 60, and 61. 

If this is not the issue then I recommend a technician take a look at the saw to locate the issue. 

 
You can also visit searpartsdirect.com for parts, diagrams, and repair information.
 
 
If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for your question. Have a great day.

I thought I replied to this the other day. I guess it didn't go through. Anyway, I contacted a nearby Sears store and was told that to repair the saw would cost me almost $50 just for a diagnostic fee. That's more than what the saw cost me and therefore not a viable solution. So I ended up exchanging the saw. So far, I've had no problem with the new one (same model I bought originally). I'll reply again if any problems arise. Thanks...
