    Can you move the for/rev button freely? If you can I would try and putting in forward and squeezing the trigger while trying to move the button. If nothing happens the switch would appear to be bad. You can go to Makitatools.com and get a breakdown for this tool. Dave

I would suggest going to the Makita site and downloading a breakdown for this tool first. The switch replacement is not that difficult to do. If you are comfortable with taking the tool apart to look for debris (possibly pieces of fan) that would restrict movement. Sometimes if it breaks pieces get behing the trigger and won't allow it to shift, if it is broken you need a new motor. Pay close atttention to the wiring it is polarity sensitive and if nott rewired correctly will burn up a new switch. Hope this helps but like I said it is not that a major repair if you just take your time and watch how things come apart.

My impact driver when in reverse works fine but when in forward it will work for a few seconds then stop and keeps doing that. why?


I'd be looking for a defective forward/reverse switch, or a bad connection/wire on the forward side between the switch and the motor.

Makita 12v impact driver- no reverse


I would suggest that you go to Makitatools.com and type in your model number and look at the breakdown for complete disassembly procedures. The only problem it could be it the tab on the switch or the shift lever is broken I would have to think it is the switch. Let me know if I can help more.

Bit is stuck in btd142 driver


the makita impact drivers are picky about the bit that you use. if you use a single sided bit you have to make sure the distance between the channel and the end is 9mm (3/8) and if you're using a double sided bit you have to make sure the distance from tip to channel is 12mm (15/32)

try using a 1/4" wrench on the bit in reverse while pulling the collar back. if that doesnt work, tap the tip of the bit with a hammer with the collar pulled back

Your drill probably has a bad or stripped drive gear. Does the drill operate in forward w/a battery that is not fully charged but yet good.?
