The query posted by me on variable speed trigger was not related to LOCKS. That was a mistake and I apologise for that. The query was regarding a power drill of Black and Decker


The switch would need to be replaced as they are not repairable. I would find the part number and using Google search by the part number for someone that may have one for sale. Not much else I can do to help you as I can't get info on non USA tools and I am a DeWalt/B&D dealer.

Dewalt cordless drill dc988- drill motor works intermitantly when trigger is pulled. Works a little better as it warms up. Im thinking vsr switch, brushes, or motor/armature. please help...


Test the brushes by catching it in a stalled condition when you have it triggered, then rotate it slightly. If it takes off suspect the brushes or a dead segment on the comutator.

If it doesn't respond to this, then consider the VSR trigger... open it and test by bypassing it when in stalled condition...

DeWalt DW972 cordless drill has intermittent variable speed trigger. (Battery is fine, recently replaced) How can I clean the variable resistor in the trigger or must replace the whole trigger module?


have to replace whole trigger assembly.

worn brushes in the motor can also cause intermittent function, if you havent already checked those. i'd replace those first if they have never been replaced or look worn, broken, cracked, or if springs seem worn.

Drilling slowly


If the battery is OK then the problem will be in the variable speed trigger switch.

We.ve the same problem with those Chinese batteries and find that this problem is quite wide spread with many brands using these batteries. I'm speaking from experience with our battery factories. No quality control!
