I have a Ryobi EMS216L sliding compact mitre saw that now, suddenly will not start. Power to it as the lights work. Would greatly apprecaie any ideas.

The only switch is the switch in the handle. does it seem to be making contact when pressed? Check switch for power. Next, you can remove the motor brush covers and check the brushes for sticking If a brush is stuck away from the armature , the motor will not run. See parts link below.

I see the question is still open, did you see my response?
