Hello, I have a DeWalt bandsaw, DW739 but do not know whether it is type 1 2 or 3. the starting switch has jammed with the green button fully depressed, even though i switched it off with no problem.The indicator light is not lit. I have checked the plug fuse, its fine,as is the power block it is plugged into. The switch seems to be a sealed unit so i can't get into it to check it out and if so can't be replaced for the same reason. Does this mean i have to scrap it just for a switch? Please help if you can, Chris Bambrough
Sorry, in my annoyed state i did not look at the switch properly. Of course its not sealed, i was looking at the reverse! so, i opened it and checked it and realised i had not inserted the plastic safety prong in fully after i had serviced it!!! It is running nicely now.
One thing i would like to know though is which type my bandsaw is as types 1&2 are no longer produced.
The figures on the identification plate are :
0197 serial no00023
P1 0.76 kw P2 0.55 kw IP 54
All the other specifications are identical.
If you can help it would be good, if not then never mind.
