I recently purchased a new trigger switch for my DW272, removed the old one, put in the new one...and must have gotten a couple wires in the wrong push in holes. It snaps and crackles when I hit the trigger now. Where can I find a wiring diagram for the trigger to show me which one goes where?

I do not have any experience with this particular drill but I have a old drill and belt sander of my dad's that stopped working and since I was going to throw them away I decided to take them a part and took the switches apart and cleaned the contacts and now they are working just fine. JR
Have you removed the old cord yet, if not make a crib sheet showing where the wires go. If the wires push into the switch use a staple and bend one of the long ends and push into hole and when pushing gently pull the cord wire out. Let me know if you need any other help
Ryobi has their own website to go on for any part that you need. You need to know all info on the drill like yr., make ,mdl. etc... I purchased a switch for my ryobi table saw and they shipped it quick and the parts are inexpensive.
I have been rebuilding drills for 10 yrs and have installs hundreds of switches. This is not an issue in a switch like this. If it was, the energy from the motor working should damage the switch more than the static from your body. I would not be concern with it.
some of the dewalt drill switches have a one way trap (like) for the wire. you push the wire in and the harder you pull it gets tight on its self. your wires go in the bottom of the trigger look right on top of each wire there is a small **** (no bigger then 3/16) for a flat head screw drive. In the **** you will see a small lever, it needs to be turned at the same time pull. It will help to have a friend.
I would have to think that it is more of a switch issue than brushes. If you remove one half of the handle do you see that the switch is burnt? But either way the current has to run thru it and if it runs when plugged in the contacts have welded shut to complete the circuit would be me guess. You can get a switch almost anywhere or go to Makitausa.com and order it direct. Let me know what happens please.
