    By intermittent power do you mean that it starts up slow and then goes dead and as you continue to depress the trigger you get high speed? Or does it work sometimes and then not

It depends on what you mean by intermittent. If the drill takes a few tries to turn on, but works fine once it does, it usually means there's a problem with the switch. If the power is weak and tends to cut out, it generally means there's a problem with the motor - usually brushes. This article might clear things up a bit:

Whodunnt? The brushes or the switch?

You can get whichever part you need replaced on that same site.

18v xpr dewalt drill smells like buring then eventually stopped working or Intermittently works.


could be 1 of 2 problems, the motor or the switch, I would think more the motor. you can get some idea of what the cost would be by going to dewaltservicenet.com and typing in your model number for the parts listing. But also keep in mind that Dewalt has a MAX service rate that they will rebuild the tool up to the MAX rate for it, that includes batterys (or it used to include them)

How do you know if the trigger is bad? getting dc volts to trigger but nothing out when I press it.


It's not unusual for Dewalt triggers to go bad and it appears you have correctly tested the trigger. You can test the motor by wiring it directly to the battery but hold on to it and only give it a short burst of power so it doesn't spin out of the case. Dewalt triggers are fairly easy to find online but shop around, they're not cheap.

Dewalt cordless drill dc988- drill motor works intermitantly when trigger is pulled. Works a little better as it warms up. Im thinking vsr switch, brushes, or motor/armature. please help...


Test the brushes by catching it in a stalled condition when you have it triggered, then rotate it slightly. If it takes off suspect the brushes or a dead segment on the comutator.

If it doesn't respond to this, then consider the VSR trigger... open it and test by bypassing it when in stalled condition...

Need procedure to replace trigger on dewalt cordless drill


I have been rebuilding drills for 10 yrs and have installs hundreds of switches. This is not an issue in a switch like this. If it was, the energy from the motor working should damage the switch more than the static from your body. I would not be concern with it.

You have burned out the drill motor, it is shorted, the battery smoked due to a direct short, one thing I don't understand why the thermal limiter didn't trip in battery pack, I would contact manufacturer and try to get hem to buy you a new drill.
