    Why don't you recharge the battery for 24 hours and try it again?

    Did you let the battery charge up COMPLETELY before using it the first time?

    Do you have another battery you can try?

My trigger switch works sometimes and then other times the trigger switch doesn't work and my light goes dead. Do I need to replace the switch and if so can you buy them.


Either the switch is bad or the wires going to/from the switch are loose and making intermittent contact. You need to open it up to see whats happening.

It sounds like the switch may be bad. Sometimes a switch will trigger when you just touch it, but at full pull it's worn out. You can check it by putting an ohm meter on the plug and pulling the switch.

Jaguar xj sport 3.2 no spark or injector pulse


If ECU has crank signal and engine turns over, ECU should give injectors a pulse and trigger the ignition. If not ECU might be bad. You should check power and grounds going to ECU. There are usually multiple power and grounds going into ECU

Hello, I have a Hobart 180 and the wire feeder motor won't run. I replaced the wire feed motor and it still won't run. any ideas?


Sound like you have a bad trigger on the gun. Does gas spray when you pull the trigger? Check the wire plug that goes from the pistol to the unit. It should be under the liner hose where it connects to the machine. Then use a voltage meter on the wires going to the drive feed motor, and see if you get current when you pull the trigger. If gas doesn't spray neither, sounds like you got a bad trigger switch

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.
