Question about Milwaukee 0822 24 V18 Driver Drill Kit

2 Milwaukee 18VDrills stopped working - NEED repair help

I have 2 Milwaukee drills, and they both went out on the same day!! One simply stopped running (as if the battery suddenly died-- but it was charged), and the other went out, and when I tapped on it it would start again. Unfortunately it wouldnt run in the vertical position, and finally just stopped working all together after about 20minutes of this. I would like to repair them, It seems like it should be an easy fix. They re bout great drills, and I cant bring myself to just chuck a big$ item like these are!!

This may not be as easy as you think. The first one my have trouble with the trigger switch, but it could be the motor. Without checking continuity, or replacing them individually you will not be able to tell which one is bad.

Another problem could be the brushes. That is what is most likely wrong with the 2nd one. Remove the 2 black screw caps on the rear of the drill, and remove the carbon brushes. Do they look worn? If so they will need to be replaced. If this is the case the motor may be breaking down, and wearing the brushes down too fast.

The good news is that Milwaukee Tools, offer a 5 year limited warranty, If you have a receipt, or can read the serial number. Take it in, or mail it to a service center. They will take care of it for you if they are less then 5 years old.

    Sorry this model drill does not have brushes that are easily accessible. Also Milwaukee does not sell the brushes for this tool, individually.

    You may be able to disassemble the housing and check visually at the back of the motor. The brushes are able to contact the motor armature with the help of a spring for each brush. Check to see if the spring is still pushing. If the area is blackened excessively replace the motor.

Hi mine show fully charged drilled 1 6mm hole and went flat yet sometimes is ok

Try fully discharging the battery first and let it sit for a few days. Then fully recharge before use. What happens with battery operated drills is the batteries develop what is called memory of the charge level when they are recharged and will not charge past that point but the charge light will show full charge. It happens when the drill is used for a period of time and then the battery is placed in the charger ready for next time instead of using the drill until it is flat or leaving a partially used drill on the bench and not recharging it until it is flat

Drill not turningand when it does easil stop with

sounds like your battery is dying. All rechargeable batteries have a limited lifespan.

The life expectancy varies dramatically based on how many times it was charged, if you left it in the charger too long, if the battery was exposed to extreme cold or it could be due to simply one or more of the cells just giving out from normal use.

Batteries are expensive. Generally about $50 each you will have to weight whether its best to buy a couple of new batts. or just get a new drill.

I recently decided to retire my 18v dewalt for the same reason between spending $120 to get a 6 year ol drill working again or just upgrading to a new with greater power, lighter weight and BETTER batteries (Li-Ion) its best to just bite the bullet and get a new unit.

There are ways to "revive" dead batteries and they sometimes will extend the life by a few weeks but the reality is once your dead your dead, there's life support but is that really any better than dead?

Look around for a good deal, are good sources. I am usually a huge fan of ebay but caution that unless you are VERY familiar with buying on ebay that you stay away from buying cordless tools there as many items are store returns. ( I work for a company that sells returned items to people that turn around and sell the junk on ebay, its wrong but it happens ALOT more than people realize)

Hope that helps
