    Can you provide the exact model number for this tool. I will find a schematic and help if I can. It sounds like the hammer is not making contact with the anvil. It might just be stuck on top of the lugs inside. Let me know

Repair intermittent switch on dewalt 20 Volt impact driver

Unfortunately Dewalt switches are solid state, meaning there is little to nothing you can do to fix them when they don't work. Occasionally spraying them with electronics cleaner and blowing them out with clean, dry air will make them work a little longer but more often than not you simply have to replace the switch. The part number for your driver is N084669. They cost between $65 and $75 so shop around or check with a local repair center.

Dewalt dw297 impact wrench does'nt work at all. the cables does'nt seem broken, so don't know what to look for.

A good place to start with Dewalt tools is the switch. Take the front off the handle and pull the switch out far enough to test the posts on the back. Plug the cord in and check for voltage where the cord attaches to the switch. No voltage, bad cord, replace the cord. If you have voltage, the cord is good. With some help, hold the switch on and check for current on the motor side of the switch. If no voltage, replace the switch. If there is voltage there, you are going to have to check the brushes, armature and/or field for continuity or shorts.

Need to repair a dw056k that no longer works, what parts usually fail?

All parts fail at some point, but if it just doesn't run at all, it is either the motor, switch, batteries, or finally the charger is defective and not charging the batteries allowing the unit to run. Here is the breakdown with part numbers.

ptrepair_12.jpg I would expect that it is either the switch or motor. Sadly this model does not have replaceable brushes, and that would be the first item I would scrutinize.
