    Hi all boutht a used Makita jigsaw from eBay and it didn't work. The light works and it makes a clicking sound when I try to start it but the motor doesn't make any sound. I disassembled it and tried to make out where the power goes and if there are any broken connections. The wiring is pretty straight forward: three wires goes from the battery into a plate on which the lever to regulate the power is fitted. From the "plate" another three wires goes to the motor (stator?) the part that doesn't move. I guess I should be able to measure the voltage there when the power is turned on? To the plate the wires from the switch are also connected. It's some kind of touch switch. Any my ideas what might be wrong? The battery I tested it with works fine with a power drill. Thanks in advance
