I can't get the chuck to work or open to change the drill bit. I have really tried!


Hi Alice:
Is this a "key"? If so, put it in place with the drill pointing up and the key handle pointing level and towards you. A light tap with a hammer on the key handle should loosen it.
If it is a "manual grip", try putting the drill in reverse, and at low speed. Hold the drill handle with your right hand, and hold the grip firmly (really firmly) with your left hand, and squeeze the trigger. It should release the chuck. If it doesn't, try putting a pipe wrench on the grip.... gun facing away from you, wrench from the top, handle on right. gently tap on the wrench handle should loosen it.
Cheers.

When I pull the trigger on my Dewalt dc925 xrp hammer drill it's working for a bit then stopping and starting


it sounds like you have a problem with the switch or battery. Try cleaning the battery contacts first and then remove the battery and look into the tool and see if the switch contacts are bent not allowing battery to seat firmly. If that is OK then I would think that you need a new switch. MAKE note of how you remove it because it is polarity sensitive. Let me know if you need more assistance.

The drill starts and stops while I hold the trigger. Like its just missing, then it wont run. How can I fix this?


I suggest that you check the brushes, and the armature. Worn out brushes sometimes cause that condition.

Also, try different trigger settings, to eliminate that as an issue.

Porter cable hammer drill 987 suddenly stopped running.


Push the battery in and out while pressing the trigger on the the drill to see if there is a loose connection here.
Check the battery terminals inside the drill and the battery terminals .These sometimes become tarnished and don't make contact. Clean with very fine sandpaper.

How do you know if the trigger is bad? getting dc volts to trigger but nothing out when I press it.


It's not unusual for Dewalt triggers to go bad and it appears you have correctly tested the trigger. You can test the motor by wiring it directly to the battery but hold on to it and only give it a short burst of power so it doesn't spin out of the case. Dewalt triggers are fairly easy to find online but shop around, they're not cheap.

How do I use a Vermont American #17192 Drill Press Stand? Anyone have an instruction sheet for this? I acquired one from a sale but am unable to figure out how to mount our drill onto it. Thanks.


I have one of these. 2c7c66c8-687d-4eff-b1b9-7685d2c6ebab.gif
Here you will see how the drill is mounted in the device. Position (b) around the handle and tighten it up untill drill seats firmly in place. Take a speed square, or normal square and eyeball or measure the drill to see if its straight. Use the alignment adjustment (A) to fine tune the drill to get the drill bit straight and square. Tighten up all the nuts holding drill in device and recheck the drill bit for straightness.. Put your work under the drill, press the trigger and lock into place to get the drill to constantly run without finger on trigger, pull down the press lever to drill your hole... Hope this helps!

The charger simply stopped working. I don't want to buy a whole new drill. Where do I get another battery and charger? s.g.


Check with Ace Hardware, they will direct you to the manufactere for a replacement charger or perhaps a place that sells aftermarket chargers...sometimes you pay more for a charger then you would for the whole drill assembly, especially if they run it on sale.
