Are you testing this tool plugged in? If so you have a ELECTRICAL SHORT that would be potentially dangerous. What I would do it remove the handle half or cover and if there is a cord clamp remove it and then gently pull on one wire at a time and see if they move or completely come out, starting with the power leads. Does the cord have a bulge in it around the area of the cord protector if so that might be an area of concern. What you can do is with your meter check the plug end to the wire in the switch and see if you have continuity. If this doesn't locate your problem I would recommend taking to a repair center for a dielectric test to find the problem which would be more involved. Let me know and be careful

My metabo khe2444 stopped working while i was drilling, what could be the common cause?

If it's fairly new, the electronic switch/speed control is the most likely thing to go out. Check and see if you can get full speed out of it. If so, then it's definitely the speed control.
If it's been used a lot, then it could be the brushes or bearings/bushings.

Here is one of the companies that sell parts for it. I'm including this so you can see a diagram. (I've never bought anything from this company, I'm not trying to promote them.)

Drill does not work when i press the trigger

Did you take a look at the carbon brushes?. Metabo has what they call Auto stop Carbon brushes. so if they are worn down they will pop away from the motor and the drill will simply not run. this happens when the brushes are basically worn out.

When you push the trigger turning on the drill it pulsates.

The tool has an 'impuls' function that is very handy for starting bits into hard metal with out walking, or driving or removing screws with damaged heads. The pulse allows the drill bit to penetrate the metal and the screw driver bit to find its' best seat in the screw head.

There is a switch on the rear of the tool. Flip the switch one way to turn on the impuls feature, the other way to turn it off!
