Question about Bosch 11236VS Rotary Hammer

Tool bogs down while drilling holes in concrete-as though it's binding up inside.

Tool bogged down and I may have smelled a slight burning smell. What parts would I need to fix this problem, and how easy is it to fix?

Depends what damage has been done to the motor. If the tool is still running but sparking you need to check what sort of sparks they are. Short fat blue sparks only going halfway round the commutator (brush end of motor/armature) then it is 90% probable that just your field coil assy is blown. If it is thinner, whitersparks going all the way around then it is the armature and possibly the field aswell. Another way to check is to remove the brushes via the covers on either side at teh bottom of the motor and check the contacting surface. If it is fairly shiney and polishe then there is little sparking and hopefully no cause for concern. If one or both is pitted and dull it has been sparking and burning. If one is shorter and darker than teh otehr this indicates a problem with the field coil. It isn't a massivly hard job to change the motor parts. If you need more advice let me know.

Milwaukee 18volt cordless drill pull trigger motor bogs. Pull trigger motor speeds up and bogs down again, could it be bad switch or motor?

Most likely it is either dirt or a burned spot on the armature of the motor. I would try blasting it with air to see if you can clean it out. If that doesn't work then it probably needs to be torn down to either clean it or replace whatever is damaged.

Fuel smell inside car, will start and run but stalls after driving, bogs down loses power.

Sounds like a leak in the fuel line could be causing the fuel smell.

My M18 cordless drill overheated and smoke came pouring out

Yes this does have brushes, they are mounted on plastic plate that has to be soldered onto the switch. That noise might be the vanes that have broken off the main rotor. If you open it up you will be able to see. Yes they can be repaired but check with the milwaukee agent for cost. Some times it is more cost effective to buy a body only. Brush card is cheap about nine pound inc vat.

This sounds as though there is a short in a wire inside after the on / off switch. If there is a burning smell when this happens then there is likely to be a short cause by normal wear from debri getting inside housing / casing.

I was drilling a hole and my drill blow up with a burning smel

could be quite a few problems, did you overload or stall the drill, did you have adequate power supply? Quick test without knowing the model number and brand can you turn the bit or chuck with your hand? If it is cordless is the battery contacts burnt? If electric unplug and remove the handle halves and look at the armature/field for burnt windings or burnt switch, all which could cause a burning smell and shut the tool down, let me know and I will try and help further.

You have burned out the drill motor, it is shorted, the battery smoked due to a direct short, one thing I don't understand why the thermal limiter didn't trip in battery pack, I would contact manufacturer and try to get hem to buy you a new drill.
