Dewalt drill binding

When i release the trigger at high speeds on my drill, it comes to a stop with binding sound. Is this a clutch/brake issue, or no issue at all?

    Did this tool just start doing this? Some cordless drill have a brake which create a short on the armature windings that stop it quickly and that may be what you are noticing but again is this a sudden noise if so you may have other issues with the tool. Let me know

If you noticed this sound the first time you tried the drill, it is noise of the armature brake.  This noise is normal and not a problem at all.  Michael Mittelsdorf

I have a dewalt xrp 18 volt cordless drill and the trigger stopped working the battery is fully charged and i tested the motor and its good this is the part number off the trigger 152398-04.


This replacement battery was a great find. We searched for batteries for our Dewalt drill and this is the only site(www.drill-battery.co.uk) that had it and at a good price. Works fantastic and is a great deal.

DeWalt DC925 electronic brake repair?


first make sure brushes are not worn out and if not then replace the switch. the brake is contained in it to throw a short thru the motor when trigger released to stop drill. You can find a breakdown for this tool at Dewaltservicenet.com

Dewalt cordless 12v drill, 3speed model...spinning problem


Sounds like your brushes are either damaged or the armature is failing the current. Remove the brushes first and inspect them, that is where your arcing is coming from. If the brushes appear ok, your problem is in the armature itself. Regardless of low use, if you store the unit with the battery attached, there are issues with the current draw while stored.

Drilling slowly


If the battery is OK then the problem will be in the variable speed trigger switch.

yes this is normal the spark keeps motor from stalling out by taking away the friction spark by making own spark
the clunk is the drill brake so you dont brake your hand when screw goes in all the way unlike old drills that kept going even when your hand was attached to it
