SOURCE: skil cordless drill model 2362 - won't charge

I have the same problem. The guys at Batterries Plus told me that 7.2 volt battereis are not easily replaced and definately not through them. If you left it charging for to long (ie over a week when you were gone like me) then the battery is never gonna charge again. You might as well find the same model of dril at skil's reconditioned site for around $40 or buy a brand new one for $60 or $70

SOURCE: Skil charger & batteries won't charge

The only thing I suggest is taking your Skil driver to a Bosch service center (Skil is now owned by Bosch) and they will replace the charger under warranty if the driver is less than a yr old. If not those chargers are not that expensive. Either way you need a new charger because they are not repairable.

SOURCE: How do I change the chuck on a 5 amp skil drill. It is keyless.

If it's anything like their other drills, there is a safety screw with left-hand threads inside chuck.

  1. Turn it clockwise until loose.
  2. Then insert the short arm of a 3/8" hex wrench and tighten.
  3. Strike long arm of wrench sharply counter-clockwise and chuck should loosen to unthread from spindle.

SOURCE: how do i take out

Hi ladogers,

Welcome to fixya!

This drill has a keyless chuck. To remove the bit, just turn the chuck to the right (looking from the handle to the front) to open the jaws. To put in another bit, tighten the chuck to the left to close. You have to use both hands. You will see where the ridged portion of the chuck is in two sections. Hold on to the back section with your left hand to keep it from turning while you turn the front section with your right hand.

A lot of the time I just push the button to put the drill in reverse, hold on the front section of the chuck and turn it on. It will loosen by itself. Then when you put the new bit in, put it in forward and hold on to the chuck and press the switch. The bit will be in nice and tight.


Good luck,

Please place a vote when you accept this solution.
Thanks,
Handie Andie

Power Driver is charged - won't work


If you are sure that battery is fine, problem can be in the switch or brushes. I would check switch first - open the driver, take 2 wires and attach battery directly to motor contacts, in case it works, problem is most probably in the switch. Juraj
