    The problem is when I got it it was in pieces. Why was because the lever(?) that you use to replace and reatach the blade. I am going to do as you say and download this. I thought the lever was an entity of its own, but the brushes and all else is apart. What I am looking at is how to replace the parts back in properly. Refit the brushes and put it all back together. Right now,to me, it looks like a monster. I saved it from the trash on a job and would like to put it back in working order. The owner told me that this was not the first time this part had broke and basicaly he was just done with it. He had a Porter Cable that worked circles around Dewalt. So that is the story.

    just went to their site and I think that you are going to fast. on the left hand side type in dw309 and it will take you to another page indicating this has more than one type number, on the down arrow open and then click on 2 give it a second while it refreshes the page. then on the next page on the right hand side it says something like exploded art and click on either one and wait, it will then ask you whether to open or save and that is your option. Let me know if you still need more assistance.

    Thank-You that was very helpful in getting the artwork. I was typing the model (type) in and kept going in a circle. So lesson of the day type in the model first and then specifics second.

For a diagram I would go to and download it. As far as instructions I am not aware of any. Most tool mfr's don't post detailed instructions for the disassembly so they can keep the repairs in house with their technicians. If you give me specific concerns or questions I will try and help. I would recommend taking photos while you are taking apart. Also if you give me the specific reason for wanting to disassemble again I will try and help.

As long as the voltage of the battery is the same as the tool, the tool won't mind if the power is coming from a NiCd or lithium battery. You do have to have a charger that works with lithium batteries to charge them up. Chargers that can charge lithium batteries can also charge NiCd and NMH batteies. NiCd chargers are not always programmed to detect when lithium batteries are full and may continue to charge them to the point of melting or starting on fire.

I need to change out a motor on a Dw364. the cover will not come off.I have it all apart.

Careful study of the exploded parts diagram may help you find the secret to opening the cover. Usually (I've "been there" with other motors) it is some item blocking, such as the brush holders, a C ring, the fan... something is blocking disassembly. I hope this helps get you on the trail. If you don't have the diagram, a copy is at:

I have a dewalt DW712 8.5" slide saw. My trigger came apart, i need to know how to reassemble the trigger? " where do the springs go" for instance?

The spring is positioned so as to provide a constant pressure on the switch so when it is depressed the switch will close the electrical circuit. If you go to the DeWalt home page and query the model for a repair diagram will also assist. You will need some back ground in assembly and mechanical drafting.

I have a dewalt drill model #dcd970 where the brake is not working. What could be the problem? And how can I fix this?

you would need to replace the switch, the brake is internal. BEFORE removing the switch make a wiring diagram to help in reassembly and make sure the wires don't touch the motor. The switch is polarity sensitive. You can either get one from or, you can also try and locate a service center or authorized repair in your area at the Dewalt site. Let me know if you need more assistance

Hi KCVAIL. To answer your main question, yes, it is possible to disassemble your mixer to do some deep cleaning and perform some TLC maintenance, which after 24 years, it could probably use.
The inspection and troubleshooting of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. You just need to have the correct Part List manual around when you start to disassemble your mixer. If you're lacking one, you can download it from the KA website (
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals& Guides> then enter the visitor type “Consumer and enter the 6 character model number, in this case K45SSW, and then select the file under Parts List (1) K45SSWH0.pdf (341.41 KB) (definitely check to see it this matches your mixer).
Although not providing step by step instructions, the exploded view of the various component assemblies allow you to see how the mixer all fits together and the manual is essential for the disassembly, troubleshooting, and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts.
Once apart you can check for unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. You may find parts that need replacement. You may also want to consider replacing all the grease, particularly if there are gear particles suspended in it.
Besides replacement grease, you might consider replacing the gasket, too. I recommend using a food-grade grease that you can order online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call).
As far as parts go, here are five potential vendors in no particular order:;;;; and You should search for ‘food grade grease’. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/greasing and reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer.
If you feel this is beyond your capabilities and will be too difficult to do by yourself you can take your mixer to a local small appliance repair shop and have them troubleshoot and fix your mixer. KA Customer Care can provide you with the name and phone # of the closest authorized KA repair shop in your area or you can do a Online web search, but be sure to get at least three estimates before deciding to commit to one repair shop.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Diagram for rebuilding DeWalt DC988


Go to and look up your model. (Hint: Press the "Go" button on the screen not the Enter button on your keyboard to submit your model in the field). Make sure you have your type number available.

If your transmission is in a million pieces I can help you get it back together. There is no diagram for the transmissions.

Two chooses:

1) you bring it to a Dewalt service center and have them do it. They will give you an estimate up front with a five or ten dollar inspection fee.

2) disassemble the unit and look for the broken part. It should be fairly obvious once you take it apart. Total disassembly of the unit is the only way to find the problem piece. Use your diagram to ensure the correct reassembly and as a added measure you can take pics with a digital camera while taking it apart. Note getting the wire routing correct when reassembling the unit is the toughest part so, take pics or notes where the wires run.

Looking for repair manual for Dewalt DW87 cordless drill

Go to and type in your model number in the middle of the page at the bottom. From there you should be able to download a schematic and some of the parts are component parts and don't have a lot of replacement items. It sounds like you broke the clutch or gearcase and both are components.
