SOURCE: Slipping clutch on low switch with Milwaukee 2601-20

this tool has a 5 year limited warranty so I would try and have repaired under warranty. I looked at a breakdown and it doesn't specify how the chuck is on but I would to think it is threaded. the clutch is an assembly and there are no replacements parts other than the assembly available. Let me know if you need more assistance.

SOURCE: need to know how to operate milwaukee screw gun?

I hope you're talking screw gun and not drill/driver. Screw gun used specifically to set screws in drywall. Make sure you have proper tip in gun (usually #2 phillips). There should be a rotating collar on the gun to control screw depth. The screw should only "dimple" the drywall. It should not tear the paper but should be below the plane of the drywall. To check depth run a putty knife over the screw heads. If you hear it hit, screws need to go a bit deeper. To work quickly; lock the trigger on and place the screw on the gun. Apply steady pressure and let the screw walk into the board until gun breaks free. Takes a bit of practice but pretty soon you'll be flying.

SOURCE: I am having difficult adjusting the Depth settin

Operator's manual is here.

To seat the screw deeper in the workpiece, you turn the adjustment collar to the right. To seat the screw higher in the workpiece, you turn the adjustment collar to the left.

If you've been using it a while and turning the collar is difficult, you've probably got some plaster dust, dirt, etc. built up in the threads for the collar. It's probably worth breaking that chuck and collar down, giving it a good scrub with an old toothbrush and putting some dry lube on it. I'm partial to Dupont's Multi-Use Teflon spray. It doesn't attract sawdust or dirt.

In the event you need it, exploded diagram with parts list is here.

If you don't want to mess with it, a Dewalt service center can clean your drill up for you pretty reasonably. I was in one in early June, 2010 and they had some 10% off service coupons sitting on the counter.

The same thing happened to me. There is normally a 2 year warranty on the batteries from Milwaukee. You can't return them to the Home Depot, you have to send them back via a local repair center.
You won't be able to exchange the batteries at the repair center. The repair center sends them back to Milwaukee and Milwaukee will send replacement batteries. You will probably be able to find the closest repair center on line.

How does the adjustable depth drywall bit work? The bit inside keeps spinning and does not drive screw into sheetrock?


It's not the tip, but the screw gun itself. The screw gun has a clutch on it that allows you to set the screw at different depths. You must adjust the screw gun to the desired depth. The deeper you want the screw to go, the less the clutch will slip.
