The motor turns but the clutch will not engage

Dewalt 925 xrp 18 volt hammer drill. I was drilling; the bit was hung up so I reversed the drill and the clutch (?) will not engage.

    I checked Dewalts site and the number you provided does not come up. But there are a couple things that you can look for anyway. Make sure the clutch is fully engaged. If this has a high/low switch lever make sure fully engaged. If neither help please recheck the model and brand and I will do some checking and see if I can get more info for you. Good luck

Take the drill out of the hammer drill setting when in reverse.  Using the drill setting with the speed on 1 will give the power to free the bit.  If the clutch will not engage, GENTLY but firmly switch between forward and reverse.  This should work just fine.   I hope this solution brings you success!  Best Regards,  Michael Mittelsdorf

Can't engage drill or hammer settings on de walt dc 925 xrp


Try turning the ring to 2 or 3 and run the drill holding the chuck so the clutch slips then try turning it to drill setting. Also try to do it in different speed settings. If not it sounds like a fault in the gear module. It might just be a metal clip just under the clip in side. Undo the 4 screws holding the gearbox onto the housing and carefully remove it, you might see the fault or loads of dirt that needs cleaning.

I have 3 drills, (2)14.4 and (1)18 volt Dewalt. the 14.4 drills starT to smell of burning and then smoke. One of the 14.4 drills seems to be less powerful. The 18 volt hammer drill is stuck in forward...


Well burning and smoke is either a switch or motor. Disconnect the motor and run it with battery voltage and no switch. If it's still slow and smokes it's the motor if not it's the switch. The other one sounds more like the switch but could be the motor. Testing would be the same as the other. On the 18 volt open it up and see if the reversing lever got hung up. It may be that you can line it back up and be ok. More likely it's a bad switch and needs to be replaced.
All these tools have static sensitive switches and need to be worked on at a static free work station.
Hope that helped..

I have an 18 volt hammer drill combo drill. I


Do the same in reverse, if possible. Also, you could use two channel locks as most of those chucks have two rings, the narrow one towards the drill itself being attached to the motor. However, make sure the screw inside the chuck is tight first -- I've seen those back out and block chucks open.

Removing the chuck on a dewalt DC925 cordless drill.


I just changed the chuck on my 18 volt xrp half inch hammer drill,yes first you must remove the torx screw with #15 torx bit,note this is a left handed thread screw,knowing the bad chuck was bad I added some heat from a propane torch to the chuck then making sure it was in 1st gear i took some vise grips and the chuck is screwed on with normal right handed threads,it broke loose (was stubborn but needs a lot of torque )ahhhhhh wat a pain.

Cannot engage hammer action


the problem is the metal part of the clutch that meets the pin from the transmission. remove the 4 screw from the clutch & check if the the inside of the clutch & the trans pin meets. all you can do is to push back the metal parts of the clutch setting.
