Question about Dewalt DC920KA Heavy Duty Xrp 18V Cordless Drill/Driver
Simple as that. this drill is a little over 2 years old, and I have to pull the battery to shut it off. it stuck for a second or two the first couple times, and now it's stuck permentantly. Squirted some WD40 around it, did some typical banging on it, tried to futz with the direction switches, the speed, etc. nothing.
The only time I have seen a persistant problem like this before is when there has been a slight defect in the housing or switch. It works ok for a while, and then gets a bit scored up and that is when it usually starts to stick. You could try a bit of emery cloth/fine glass paper on the housing area that the switch button slides through. Also, when cleaning, a good thing to use is brake/carb cleaner as it evapourates quickly and is generally non conductive. It will get rid of a lot of grease, but most switches have a small amount of grease inside to stop the contacts furring up, so always make sure you spray a bit of wd-40 or someting down the switch slider shaft afterwards.
