Question about Bosch Skil Drill / Driver Kit

Open Question

Skil drill/driver will not run at full speed

My drill will not run at full speed 100% of the time. I will use the drill and it will run full speed and then the next time i use the drill it will run half speed. Could this be the switch?

    Yes, sounds like the switch. Is it a variable speed? Small pressure, it moves slow and max pressure it is max speed?


    I have a drill with a bad switch and it only has MAX speed. No matter how light the pressure it is full speed. I had to stop using it because I have no control of the speed.

    Is this after the course of a few days use? Or immediately after?

I have a Skil Model 2363 drill. Used it about 3 times. Put it in the charger and it won't charge. I have it for about 1-1/2 years. Skil says I have to buy a new one. That the battery is no longer made....


Sometimes places like Batteries + and the Battery Barn (on line web sites) will have replacement batteries for popular models even after the manufactures quit producing them. That is where I found batteries for my Bosch drill.

Skil charger & batteries won't charge


The only thing I suggest is taking your Skil driver to a Bosch service center (Skil is now owned by Bosch) and they will replace the charger under warranty if the driver is less than a yr old. If not those chargers are not that expensive. Either way you need a new charger because they are not repairable.

How do I change the chuck on a 5 amp skil drill. It is keyless.


If it's anything like their other drills, there is a safety screw with left-hand threads inside chuck.

  1. Turn it clockwise until loose.
  2. Then insert the short arm of a 3/8" hex wrench and tighten.
  3. Strike long arm of wrench sharply counter-clockwise and chuck should loosen to unthread from spindle.

I have a Skil 2362 7.2v drill that goes dead when charged


Sounds like the trigger switch is bad. If you know the charger is good and it is charging the battery, then it must be the switch. I suggest you take the charged battery and test it with a multimeter for the 7.2V. If the battery is dead, then check the charger.
Take it back to Lowes and get a different brand.
