      They get dust in the switch.Take out the two screws that hold on the switch and blow it out.If that don't work wiggle the wires around a bit,works for me.

        Mine did that. Spin the movement (take off the green cover to see it) and then hit the switch. May need to do it a few times. Just a gremlin acting up.

          On mine, the on/off switch went completely out. I just bypassed the switch, and I use a foot-pedal switch. Really makes scrolling so much nicer!

              There are probably only two wires on the actual switch body. Pull them off and make a wire jumper to go between them and then plug in the saw. If it starts, then the switch was bad.

              Unless you are comfortable around hot wires, I would suggest jumping the connection first--then plug it in!

                check if you have good plug ( in the wall inlet ) couse with time it start to wear (from inside) lose leads , and it might be the switch too , you may bypass it or just make a short between the wires of the switch if it work, then you have bad switch if not then check , if there is a fuse inside the control board of the saw .

                  I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

                  Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                  I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...
