Basicly there was a set screw in the switch and got every out of case when I unscrewed it, Found
a good diagram. What happened the person I got the lite from had not opened it for 6 years and the batteries rotted to the case and would not come out. Once switch part was out of case, got a hammer and a piece of wood and got batteries out with out damaging the case. A little steel and oul will make the inside like new. By the way the batteries were kind of rotted bad. I have another lite and it pays to check batteries once in a while.

MAGLITE D- Cell : Push button off/on switch is stuck in the on(down) position and won't release to the up(off) position. Any suggestions? Thx!


Try gently pulling up the rubber cover for the switch. use a butter knife to gently pull it free. Then you should be able to see the switch button itself. Try a *small* drop of a plastic safe lubricant. Or try a small spray of silicone lubricant. This should free it up. If not Mag Light has replacements, and they do offer a lifetime warranty. Here are the switch replacement instructions

1 "D" cell battery is corroded and stuck inside.


Here are the instructions:

If you remove the tail cap (the part that you unscrew to put the batteries in the flashlight) and the head assembly (the part that has the light bulb) you should be able to push the battery out. Wear some of those disposable latex gloves as that chemical that comes out of the batteries is very corrosive. Or at least wash your hands really well before touching anything, especially your eyes. Good luck.

I have a 3AA LED mini maglite with stuck batteries. The best I can tell they have not leaked. I tried freezing the unit as well as heating the barrel to no avail. Is there a way of removing the bulb...


well, I have a 3 cell mini maglite AA with a corroded battery stuck up next to the LED. I have searched but not found a way to remove the LED to push out the battery with a dowel. The best solution I read about was to drill a hole in the battery and insert a large screw and pull it all out.
(My Maglite is from 2009 or 2010, but I think they made this model in 2011, 2012 and 2013- this is for SEO!)

I have a 6 d cell maglite. when i removed the end cap 3 batteries came out number four is stuck in the maglite. how can i get it out?


Not sounding good. I have had the problem in the past with Mag lights and though they are good, I always seem to have battery corrosion problems. What I have done is to get a non-metalic rod, wooden doweling has worked for me, carve a bit of a blade at the end, sort of like a long screw driver and work it into and between the batter and flashlight case. Not so hard as to deform the flashlight, but to try and break the seal between the corroded (I assume) battery and the case. Spray in some WD40 and work the dowel in and around the battery. Stop on occasion and tap the open end of the flashlight on a heavy rag laid atop a piece of wood to try and jar the battery loose. By repeating this process I have been able to remove corroded batteries, but not necessarily save the flashlight, as some times the on/off switch is corroded as well. Once you get the batteries out you may be able to clean the inside with some abrasive (steel wool?) to clean out the corrosion, but as I said, you may not be able to save the light. Best of luck!

MAG-Lite flashlite with Battery removal problem


Pull the cap off the end and wack it in your hand or a piece of wood, don't swing it like a baseball bat. Sometimes they get stuck in mine also, Not sure why, but a good wack gets the job done. Don't worry, the flashlight can take it.

6 cell maglite. batterys will not fall out of tube.


They are probable corroded. Try tapping on solid surface that you will not damage, a piece of 2x4 works well. If still wont come out take off top of mag and see why they are stuck. If corroded clean wil baking soda and water then rinse well and use a hair dryer to dry completely. You may have corrosion on all other parts to.

I have a mini Maglite with one battery stuck in the barrell


I had a similar problem. My wife put two AA rechargeable batteries into her mini maglite. Apparently the AA rechargeables have a slightly larger diameter than alkaline batteries. One of them was stuck in the barrel. I was able to remove it by first removing the lens and bulb so as not to break it. Then I slammed slamming the barrel down hard onto the carpet on our floor. This hard shock jarred the battery loose and it came out of the barrel. Hope this helps someone out.

Corroded batteries stuck in a mini AA maglite


yes the bulb assy can be removed as it's basically the switch you need like a special tool for removing it. but first which brand of battery is in it. both energizer and Duracell have warranty about replacing item that the battery has damaged. try that route is my suggestion before trying to remove batteries and possibly breaking the switch. you can get one sent to you by calling up customer service as i replaced one before mini mag lite also.
