Question about Drills

1 Answer

Switch problem doesnt seem to be variable speed

When I pull the trigger in the speed slows and stops when fully pulled in. If I release it slowly the speed starts out slow and speeds up towards fully backed out. It is as if the switch is backwards somehow. The drill is brand new and I can just take it to the repair center, but was wondering if it was possible the switch was put in incorrectly. Thank you,Tony

    I took it to a repair center and picked it up today. As it turns out, the switch wire was loose. The tech told me he never saw a switch like it before. Apparently the wire connecting isnt a very secure system. He said he could see how it could come loose a again with a decent bang on the drill. I asked him if I could tape it to make it more secure. He said there wasnt room to do that as it needs to fit in a samll space. he didnt understand why Dewalt had changed to this type of switch. Maybe more problems down the road may have some sort of recall. For now the drill works fine and I know for the future what the problem is. Thanks......

It is possible that it might not be wired correctly, but I doubt it. I would return for replacement or warranty repair.

Hitachi 24v sds hammer drill issues with speed when pulling back trigger switch sometimes works other times nothing, already changed dc speed control trigger any ideas to what the problem is? Thanks


faltering on a slide contact on electric field or switch, but in most cases dirth (dust) in carbonbrushes can be hanging somewhat in one or both brushholders.
Or a problem in the trigger switch itself dust and dirth have almost the highest priority in case of faltering by clamping carbon brushes.

A common failure item the switch is going bad. You need Dewalt part number 152274-19SV. They're not hard to replace but shop around the web for one, these switch usually run between $45 and $60 plus shipping.

Bring it in to a factory service center. They will give you an estimate on how much it cost to repair it. Then you can decide to chuck it or not. Also hilti will give you a trade in for your gun if you decide to buy a new one.

Here is a link to find a service center in your area:
