Hi my 18v xrp combi drill which is about 18 months old seems to have problems with the trigger. At times the speed of drilling is very slow but can suddenly speed up without any additional pressure on the...


YES. You have dirt and grime inside.Go to a Lowes or Home depot and look in the nail gun dept. Get a can of Paslode tool cleaner.( white aerosol can with orange and black label) $8 a can. While running tour drill,(over a sink or outside) spray it all inside aroud trigger and motor,turn in all directions and watch how much gunk will wash out. You'll be suprised at what a difference this will make and it will prolong the life of your tool. Works great on all battery powered tools and air tools ! I highly recommend it, but don't buy them out of it , leave some for me. I;m allmost out of it.

Dewalt drill won't work in 1st gear then it kicks in and works


You could have lost one teeth on the gear wheel . Once it is rotating the system will not miss the lost teeth, until you loose some more teeth then you will loose power and the drilling will become jerky and might even stop on applying pressure

How do you troubleshoot an 18 volt cordless drill switch


WITH A VOLT METER CHECK THE VOLTAGE OF THE BATTERY THAT YOU ARE TESTING WITH, AND WITH THAT IT MIND, IF IT SAID 18 VLTS THERE SHOULD BE EXACTLY THE SAME VOLTAGE COMMING OUT OF THE SWITCH AS WAS GOING INTO THE SWITCH, IF OFF BY MORE THAN A VOLT, THE SWITCH IS BAD OR GOING BAD. AS FAR AS VARIABLE SPEED IT EITHER WORKS OR NOT!! THANKS JIMS TOOL SERVICE

Just quit working one day, drill is just over a year old not used a whole lot, pull trigger and nothing happens


Are the batteries fresh? How about the switch? Is it in the right position? I can't believe the motor has died. Even a dead battery will spin it a little. Check that out and let me know what you find.

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...

Switch problem doesnt seem to be variable speed


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