Reciprocating saw blade keeps stalling

Postby dimasafr » Sun Nov 19, 2017 8:38 am

I have a fairly new Macalister Reciprocating saw which I use to cut up wood. Yesterday I was cutting up old worktop when the blade stalled. And from that moment on the blade keeps stalling anytime when it encounters any resistance, the motor keeps running though.
even if i try cuttinf through a soft board it would stall after about half centimetre. any thoughts?
ps. i dont have recipt so cant repair it under warranty.
