Operation Problem with breaker

Hello! Motor works OK but chisel seems to jam and stop moving. Motor continues running. No odd noises. Chisel easily removed and refitted. Have taken whole assembly apart and all looks OK. Wondered whether it might be worn piston O rings reducing pressure causing it to stall. Machine is ex-hire and pretty old. Cheers Ron

I worked at a tool rental /hire while going to college and repaired many of these breakers. For this tool to work most efficiently, we would store them in their stand upright in a heated area (during winter). This tool requires special grease sold as a service kit which includes orings and bolts for retainer area. Remove large piston attached to connecting rod and remove inner striker (fits inside main piston) this striker is the source of problems. Clean inner cylinder and striker and lube with bosch grease, not too much. If you lay the hammer down or store with bit side up this striker will migrate to uppermost part of the main piston and be vacuum locked thus not hammer. Also remove and lube the impact bolt and look for damage. If chipped or cracked this part must be replaced. Parts/list are available at enjoy

    how hard are these to strip down and clean andif vacumed locked is this the only way

    Hammers are easy to take apart and clean. Sounds like the lower part of hammer could be packed with grit not allowing parts to move. Good that the motor sounds good and strong.

How to remove bolts? What tool do l use?

a hammer and chisel place the chisel at the edge and use it to move the bolt head around
when the pressure comes off the thread it will turn easily
these are special bolts where the head breaks off on installation and it becomes an anti theft bolt to prevent removal of the steering wheel lock after installation
you can use normal headed bolts to reinstall

Hilti te 56 combi hammer not working

The gears inside that engage the chisel points to move back and forth are either not alligned properly or are stripped. You'll have to open up the hammer to see what, exactly, is the problem.

Hi, I hope both of my problems are related. The chisel is "stuck" and won't release. Also, the unit does not "hammer". The motor runs and when I select drill the unit spins. I...

you need to get that chisel out. If it was hammering with it before the end of the chisel might have broken and not coming into contact with the striker, if it did not then the end of the chisel might be damaged not allowing it to seat fully, either way get the chisel out and put in a regular bit and it will probably work.

I have a HILTI TE905 breaker and something is seems wrong with the chuck or the chilsal as it keeps falling out of the end and not gripping it. Is it possible to take the chuck apart to see if I can spot...

I have just dismantled my own TE 905 to see why it was dropping the chisels and have found the following:-

1. The chisel is worn and has almost become too small for the chuck. (mesure the thickness of the chisel at both ends of the hexagonal shaft and see the difference)

2. The chuck is worn and will probably need to be replaced.
I phoned Hilti today and was quoted £100 for ONE PART OF THE CHUCK!!!

a. The chuck as a whole can easily be removed by undoing the four torx screws that hold the chuck on to the main body.

b. The chuck can be dismantled by removing the retaining ring that holds the metal outer case in place at the front of the chuck. This is very fiddly and requires some engineering skill, the use of pointed instruments could easily result in injury.

The third fix is the one I am going to use to 'patch up' my old breaker. This involves welding some small amounts of dissimilar weld onto the points of the hexagonal section at the rear of the chisel then grinding them to near enough the original size of the un-damaged section of the chisel.
This will very crudely stop the chisel from passing the ball bearings inside the chuck. PLEASE NOTE THAT ANY HEAT APPLIED TO THE CHISEL WILL CAUSE STRESS AND POSSIBLE FAILURE OF THE CHISEL. ANY MODIFICATIONS OF THIS NATURE COULD RESULT IN INJURY TO PERSONS WORKING AROUND YOU AND ARE NOT RECOMMENDED IF YOU ARE WORKING AT HEIGHT OR WITH PEOPLE BELOW YOU. This is a fix that should only be attempted by competent engineers for use on a DIY or small job basis. Hope this helps.

Demolition tool or breaker

The shaft from the motor to the drive gear is likely not working the action of the hammer. There is a gear which spins the gears to achieve the hammer action, suspect the gear is either stripped, broken or both.

I have a Kango 950 and it doesn't work properly. When it is plugged in the motor works fine but the chisel bit does not move up and down or even vibrate.

Sounds like lubrication. Used special grease only. May have broken cam. Hammer will run like you say if no load is placed on drill tip. Test it on a rock. Probable rebuild adviseable.

I believe it is an adjustment you need to make. It is covered in the manual as you go through the setup.
