Question about Makita 3/8" Dr. 14.4V Cordless Drill Kit

1 Answer

Makita cordless dril Model # 6213D 12volt.

Alright the deal is that the motor seems to be struggling to run at optimum speed in the low or high position. I checked batteries and they get a full charge. I checked the brushes and cleaned them but still no difference, all I can think now is that the motor itself is worn out.

What do you think it could be.

When you pull the trigger on the drill it starts up very slowly and runs at maybe 500rpm max.

    same problem except that the drill has only been used about 10 times for routine duties. Hard to believe that the motor is worn out in this case. Makita would not repair as they no longer make parts for this model. Anything I can try before IT eds up in the garbage?

I used to pull these drills to bits for a living and all i can say is that if the brushes are intact and not too worn then it should run fine without cleaning the brushes. chances are that the motor has worn out.

My Makita DSS610 18v cordless circular saw stopped working mid cut. I changed the battery to another, fully charged, one but still nothing. Tried again next day, with both batteries, still nothing.

Hello Derek, it seems that your motor or motor brushes have failed please contact the manufacture about replacing the motor brushes.

I have a pear 6980, and it works just high speed and you can control the speed I wanted to know what can I do if I can fix it myself

The variable speed function is controlled by the switch. On rare occasions you can remove the switch, spray it with electronics cleaner and blow it out well to get it to work again. Usually you have to replace the switch. The switch for your impact driver is Makita part number 638326-6 and runs about $65.

How do you remove the ketless chuck from the 6213D drill

I think the general procedure is to chuck something in at at a right angle (an allen wrench, for instance) and then smack the free end with a hammer or mallet to break the threads loose. BUT, you have to know FOR CERTAIN if it is left-hand or right-hand threads.

9.6 volt dril will nor run, either with a new battery or old. All the batteries are holding a charge, checked with VOM.

OK then you either have a switch problem (check for bent contacts or corrosion) or the motor is bad. What is the model number we are talking about and I will try and get you a breakdown for it.

Makita 14.4V Cordless Impact Driver only works at high speed

Most cordless drill / drivers like this have electronic switchs which unfortunately would have to be fixed by a repair agent. Depending on it's age - make sure that you tell the agent that it never really worked properly, warrentys only cover parts that were faulty from manufacture and not wear and tear, so it may get fixed for free depending on the repair centre

The motor is working but the chuck head is not turning properly - it turns and then when you put pressure on it it stops. I have 3 makita drills and this is happening with all of them

First, check the lever on the top of the drill (high/ low lever speed) and make sure it is engaged in one of the positions. If it is in the middle it will cause your drill to stop. Otherwise, the gear box is gone and will need to replaced. The part # you need is #125-429-0 and it runs about $59.20.
Good luck

I need to remove the chuck on my Makita 6213D drill

I am commenting so this will go out of the active section. When you put the chuck back on just reverse the procedure and hit it a couple times to seat the chuck and reinstall the screw.
