Do you have more than one battery and if so do they both do this? It sounds like the batery has shorted out or possibly the switch is malfunctioning and creating the short either way I would not try and recharge a battery that has these symptoms. I actually had a NiCad battery catch on fire when I charged it not knowing the history of battery. There are repair centers that usually won't charge you to check batterys/drill or maybe a minimal fee but it is cheaper than replacing batterys constantly. Good luck. Dave

Smoke come from motor and now drill hardly moves .is new motor required or brushes


You will rarely get smoke from the brushes on electric tools. Smoke is usually a result of either the armature or field coils getting hot enough to melt or burn the varnish insulation off the wire which results in a loss of or no power because of shorting in the windings. You'll have to replace whichever part burned the windings and find out what caused the problem or you'll burn the new part the same way the original burned.

I have a Nextec 12V cordless drill, when i press the trigger, the light flashes, but, the drill does not work. i have tried different batteries and have changed the settings and switches and it still...


At first it does sound like the batteries.

How old is the drill? If it's old, then the batteries may either be dead, or need a careful, slow charge overnight to charge them properly. If new, then they may also need a really nice slow charge.

Sorry to ask, but have you fully charged all the batteries you have tried? !!! Many rechargeables lose a great portion of their charge if they sit for a long time.

Also, when using the drill, never use it until it runs the battery down so far stops, as this can damage batteries or discharge them to where again you need to very carefully charge them to get full charge back again.

Have you overloaded the drill:any plastic smells or have you drilled too hard and stalled it for a long time? That could cause motor damage. But look to the batteries first.

Drill wont take a charge or operate, drill 9089 10mm type 3, 6 volt


9 times out of 10 problems like this are the result of a bad battery, in other cases it can be a bad charger. Without knowing more information I cannot give you an exact diagnosis. This is the first question I ask when approached with this issue, Has this drill been sitting for a period of time and if so, was the battery charged before it was put away? If Yes, the drill has been sitting and No, it was not charged are your answers than chances are your batteries are dead. This tool has Ni-Cd batteries that self discharge as they sit, eventually these batteries discharge until they have nothing left. In addition, if the battery is stored in a cold garage/shed will speed up this self discharge. I always tell people to think of their power tool batteries just lie a just like a car battery that dies if it sits too long without being started.
If you do not use your power tools on a regular basis it is recommended to fully charge the batteries before storing them or else they will self discharge until completely dead. Another option is the newer Lithium-Ion power tools batteries are not as temperature sensitive, have a much slower self discharge and can sit for 12-18 months before starting to loose their charge.
A replacement battery for this drill runs about $42 plus s/h and can be purchased directly from Black & Decker (1-800-4-DeWalt or www.dewaltservicenet.com) My recommendation is to purchase a new drill. For around $40 - $50 you can buy a newer upgraded model with new battery and charger.
If you think your issue may be something else, please feel free to ask. If you feel I have helped explain or resolve your issue than please rate me. Thank you

Dewalt 18v XRP Hammer drill cause battery to burn, I'm talking flames and smoke. Motor run in both direction.


I hope this drill is still under warranty as the battery is in serious trouble. As long as the motor is turning, it should not be causing the battery to do this. Hope this helps!

The drill has stopped charging up. No obvious


It may be the charger, but most likely the battery can no longer hold a charge. This may happen if the battery drops below its holding charge. Example, left discharge for a couple months. There is little that can go wrong with a charger unless you start smelling burnt plastic from it.

When I use the drill there is a burnt smell afterwards...what is causing this?


Drillbits "burn" what you are drilling when there is too much friction. That is caused by a variety of things...including...lack of lubrication for metal work...and usually a dull drill bit in wood.

If you see no smoke comming from the point of impact...it might be your drill motor..check it out when you are using it...it could be dirty and need a good cleaning...or it could be burning out from excessive or improper usage.
