Your drill probably has a bad or stripped drive gear. Does the drill operate in forward w/a battery that is not fully charged but yet good.?

SOURCE: works fine in forward but will not go in reverse

Assuming that it's within 2 yrs old, you can phone Hilti re getting it fixed under warrenty. Hilti has a warranty that covers wear and tear on the tool body for 2 yrs (batteries for 1 yr) - hope you didn't already know this...

SOURCE: Drill stop working after drilling hole in

With the DeWalt cordless drills, the weak link is that the leads tend to burn (melt) off at the motor brushes when the drill is overloaded. It's happened to mine now about 3-4 times, so much so I've had to replace the wires after they got too short to put a new terminal back on them!

The only other issue is that the trigger mechanism could have failed due to the hevy load of drilling in concrete. But before you spend the bucks on that, you can easily check to see if it's the wiring or the trigger assembly.

Before you take anything apart, make sure the top speed selector is at #1, and the torque setting set to the lowest setting. (makes it easier to remember if you have the speed selector come out of the drill body)

Now lay the drill on it's side and with the battery out of the tool, remove all the screws that hold the two halves together. Take off the top half and look at the back end of the tool to see if the wires going to the motor are in good condition and not burned off the motor brush tabs. If they are, you can either resolder them or recrimp them (DeWalt used different methods for different models) with a new .25 female terminal (any auto or hardware store will have them)

You can give the repair a quick check (IF you are careful) by putting in the battery into the lower drill body and holding the drill motor, gently squeeze the trigger and see if the tool runs. If so, you've fixed it and can put the drill back together.

If the wires are good, then it's the trigger assembly and you'll have to get one from either a DeWalt Authorized service center or distributor that carries repair parts, as these are sealed units and can't be fixed (I've tried). There are some available online too, if you wish to do the replacement yourself, which is a straight forward unplug and plug operation, now that the tool is apart.

Reassemble, making sure the speed selector is in the slots on the tool body and everything else lines up correctly. Install the screws and you're back in business.

Hope you find this very helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: No reverse on drill.

I am assuming the new switch was wired correctly, I would look for the pin or similar device that switches it from for/rev. If your switch has a post look at the slider and make sure not broke or your pin not put in rightt position. Let me know

Drill disengages when spinning


Could be several things. If it is a reversible drill, the selector switch could be stuck between forward and reverse. If it is a variable torque (popular on battery drills) the torque setting could be real low. Also, I've had this problem with the gears inside the drill wear out. No easy fix for that. If it is an inexpensive drill it would be cheaper to replace it than to have it repaired.

Have b&d firestorm 14.5 volt cordless, forward and reverse switch broken older model but hate to throw it away. it is stuck in forward andhave two batteries and good charger throw away? or fix ?


Fix! We had the same problem, and when we opened up the case (8 screws and a pin later), we found that a tiny plastic tab had broken off the Forward/Reverse selector, which costs less than a dollar. We ordered it from a local supplier to avoid $10 shipping.

Dewalt drill model no dw563l-xw not hammering sounds okay but no power behind hammer stroke


The selector switch (hammer drill/drill) has to be fully set to the hammer drill position for it to work. Also, the bit has to meet some resistance for the hammer effect to be more pronounced. Make sure also that your forward/reverse switch is set to forward.

I would not say they are not defected, but I think they are not getting fully charged. I have the same problem with my battery once I have used it all day and the red light comes on from the fuel gauge. I have the P104 battery. I would return your charger and try to charge them on the new one first. If you have the same trouble, then return the batteries for new ones.

I'm new to home improvement, and just bought my first cordless drill (Ryobi P204, 18-volt, 1/2"). How the heck do I insert the bit? The drill comes with two batteries, and a charger. There is an opening...


Like many drills these days, the P 204 has keyless chuck. In order to secure a bit, locate the forward/reverse switch (right above the trigger). Set it to the center of the three positions. This will lock the drill so that it cannot turn. Now turn the black portion at the front of the drill's nose (looking at the drill from the front, clockwise rotation will tighten the chuck and counterclockwise will loosen it) Adjust the chuck jaws so the bit you have chosen will fit without too much slop and then tighten the chuck until it holds the bit snugly and straight. Unlock the forward/reverse switch (push to the right to drill or insert screws) and you should be ready to go!

Nthing happens when I hit the swithch


Probably the switch but also check the selector for the forward and reverse as it may be in neutral or stuck in neutral. Check continuity of the switch and make sure switch is receiving power.

How do you change the drill bit for a Ryobi?


My husband explained this, via phone ..... made it simple....... grab the silver ring area beneath the black top area where the drill bit is located. Hold the silver area firmly, while you twist the black top. You will see the release, then remove drill bit. Laymen's terms, but it worked!!
