“The cord is a two-wire 16-gauge cord. Power cords tend received lots of abuse. The cord to be cut, nicked, internally damaged
or have the prongs broken off. A damaged cord should be immediately replaced
to avoid an electric shock. Replacing the cord is a repair that you can
do yourself and I’m going to show you how. Hi, I’m Mark Salter. Do it yourself. Repairs like these are easier than you might
think. From lawn machines to cordless drills, kitchen
mixers, outdoor drills. Our how-to videos walk you through each repair
from start to finish. Doing it yourself means never having to do
it alone. Let’s get started. I’ll begin by removing the rear handle cover. I’ll also remove both of the motor brush covers. Now we have access to the wire connections. I’ll go ahead and remove the cord clamp. I’ll remove the screw that secures the switch. With the switch removed, I can remove the
cord wires. I’ll remove the cord protector from the cord. Now I’ll install the new cord. First I’ll replace the cord protector. Next, I’ll reattach the wires to the switch. Now I can install the switch back into the
housing. I’ll put the paper back over the connections
and align this switch with the housing. You’ll notice that the motor wires are secured
inside a piece of felt. I’ll make sure that falls back into place
in the housing. I’ll re-secure the switch with the screw. I’ll tuck the cord wires back into the housing
and then slide enough of the outer cord case through the clamp. It’ll get clamped firmly into place. Then I’ll make sure the cord protector is
aligned with the housing. Then I can replace the clamp. You’ll notice there’s two screw holes. For the internal screw, I want to use this
lower hole. Now reinstall the handle cover and secure
it with the screws and the brush covers. That’s how you can replace the cord on your
power tool. Be sure to check back often for new videos
