Kawasaki 19.2 cordless drill

Batteries all powered up, pull the trigger and ...nothing. Trigger was hard to pull, when unstuck, drill wouldn't operate from that point forward. Any quick fix??

    Same problem here, it started out by not always working when you pull the trigger and even then would change speeds while drilling. However it served it's purpose for small tasks. Now nothing - tried both batteries and nothing at all. I do not recommend this drill to anyone looking for one. I really haven't used it all that much either, just misc. household tasks. I have a Portercable drill for my heavy duty tasks. If anyone has any fixes, I'm listening - can't hurt to have a cheap drill laying around for easy stuff.

    I have a similar problem.I was in the middle of hanging a shelf. I swapped oiut the drill bit fro a philips head bit and my drill just stopped working. I didn't think that it was the battery because I had just drillled the pilot holes with no problem. I swapped out the battery just to try it anf NOTHING happens when I pull the trigger. I get an indicator light with both batteries so I really don't think that it is the batteries. I think that it is the switch. I have no idea of how I can fix this and if I can't find a way to fix it soon, this was the LAST Kawasaki product I am ever going to buy.

    Warning, take the battery out of these units. I had the same problems listed above, with the switch working inconsistently. Then, the other day, my wife heard the drill operating by itself in the other room. By the time she checked on it it was smoking profusely. The handle had melted. I am convinced that if no one was at home at the time, it would have caught on fire. Scary!!!

    I have the same problem and I think it is the switch - after taking it apart, smelled the switch and it smells like it burnt. Great drill for small tasks. would like to replace the switch - anyone know where one can purchase a replacement switch?

Re: Burned trigger switch: call the number on the drill (800.590.3723) and tell them what happened. They will offer to send you a new switch or have you send the drill in for replacement of the switch--although the person I talked with said they would probably just replace the whole drill.

I have the same problem with my kawasaki drill. It has been always a great tool until one day the trigger was "stuck" and not matter how much force I used, it would not work. The strange thing was, I was using it earlier that day, no problem. When I came back a few hours latter, it refused to work at all and the trigger is jammed. Then I noticed a burned plastic smell coming from the drill. So from there I proceeded to take the battery out and open the drill. When I was finally able to take the drill apart, I saw that it has shorted out somewhere and the black wire to the trigger was completely burned up and all that plastic has melted all over the trigger causing it to glue together. Kawasaki needs to recall all drills they sold because of this potential problem that others may of experenced.

    I had the same problem with shorted out, melted wires below the trigger switch. I'm lucky we didn't have a fire because of it. The drill was in its case with the battery attached when it happened. Found it the next day. I'm looking for a way to fix it, if possible.

I bought a new battery in mid 2009 for my Kawasaki 19.2 volt drill. last night I plugged the battery into the charger and this morning it was smoking badly and had melted the case on the battery. If we hadn't been home the plastic could have caught fire. Just a warning use this charger in a fire proof area. I will be returning the unit to Alltrade.

    Alltrade sent a replacement drill and two batteries and a charger. It's been three years and they still work great. I have been very happy with this unit since the replacement.

Bosch cordless drill not working.


First The model is pretty new. you need to register your tool on line. this takes you from a one year warranty to a three year warranty. They will give you a pro-vantage number. with that said it sounds like a trigger switch. Yhe trigger switch is the brain of your tool. not only does it do your variable speed but it also controlls the brake and your fuel gauge. Because of the cost I highly recomend taking it to your closes Bosch service center.

Having charged both batteries the drill will not work. It seems to not get any power.


Hi there, let me see if I can help.

1.Since this is a 4 piece kit, test the batteries in some of the other tools to make sure the batteries are good

2. This could be a malfunctioning unit, If you just bought it, take it back to the store and get a replacement, (you may have to take in all 4 and do a complete swap but most home improvement stores have no problem doing this)

3. The Forward and Reverse selector just above the trigger is stuck in the middle meaning, the drill is not in forward or reverse and when you press the trigger nothing happens. See Page 15 of this PDF for more information.

4. If none of this works, there is a Recall for that Battery Unit. Check This PDF to see if what you bought applies.

Hope this helps.

When I pull the trigger on my cordless drill smoke comes out of the vents and you can smell burning odor


The motor has jammed and burned out. It is probably not worth trying to repair.
If it is still within the warranty period take it back for replacement under guarantee

Kawasaki 19.2 cordless drill


I will go one further, they had a recall of their batteries which could have led to your problem back in 2007 and the chargers on some of them also. I would again call the number and give them the date codes from both and then try again at getting it replaced. Their are a lot of posts online for this to be a simple occurence, The battery could have shorted internally causing the switch to melt and there would be a potential for user injury also. Let me know if you find anything out and if you have there web address I would be interested.

Hi Tim, Sounds like you got it figured out! The only question I see is if there is a quick fix, and it looks like you answered your own question. You can certainly pursue requesting that it be fixed as a manufacturing defect/ faulty part, or even a safety hazard as that is your right. While I can not suggest you take that route, the old metaphor of the sparking trigger that melted in my hand always seemed to get a lot of attention. Good Luck to you, hope this Fixsya!
