Question about Dewalt DC727KA 3/8" 12v Cordless Drill/Driver Kit
I fix cordless DeWalt drills every week!Look for two black carbon-like blocks found on either side of the commutator ( the central spindle ) they will each have one wire on the outside end attached to a spade connector so the brush can be easily removed by prying it out from beneath the spring holding the brush against the commutator. Then the wire can be removed and the new brush installed. Go online to http://www.toolpartsdirect.com and search for your model dewalt drill. they have an exploded diagram and parts listing for each model drill. That will identify the brush for you if you have never seen one before. If the drill was operating intermittently with lots of noise and usually blue sparks coming out, loss of power, increasing intermittant operation it would almost certainly benefit from replacing the brushes. If it is simply dead, and was ever dropped. check the battery terminals and the trigger mechanism. Of course inspect the battery and check inside the drill for loose or broken wires and connections. I hope this is helpful. Good luck!
