Question about Makita Drills

Hammer switch jammed on Makita HP1621K/2 Percussion Drill 2

Hi, I've had this Makita Percussion Drill for 1 1/2 years. A few days ago, after a fairly long drilling session to put some shelves up, the hammer/percussion switch on top of the machine jammed: I can no longer move it from the ''hammer'' to the ''drill'' position. I opened the machine but can't see any obvious damage - it just looks like the ball bearing that would normally swivel round into the hole where the drill head sits (and so pushes the head away from the cogwheels that cause the hammer action) no longer fits through.

I looked at Makitausa.com website and it appears that you might be correct. there are 4 parts to this assembly and one of the problems might be the cam holder position #17. I would suggest that you go to their site and take a look at how the parts are supposed to be. I used the model number in the large header so this might not be the exact one that you have. Let me know and I will try and help further.

Makita battery wont keep charge


Given the problems with Makita Li-ion batteries there are 2 likely reasons, you have a faulty charger or both batteries are faulty, the best option is to find another charger to try your batteries on and see if they charge, depending on the age of the drill you may be able to get the batteries or charger replaced by Makita, a lot of them have been replaced out of the warranty period because they are known to fail prematurely, take the faulty item back to the place of purchase with you invoice and put the pressure on for replacement

Can the Makita BL 1830 Battery be restored to use after it has died?


You can try to put it in the freezer for 24 hours. When you remove it let it set at room temperature for at least a day before you try to recharge it. I don't understand why this works but I had someone reccomend this to me many years ago on my cell phone battery and it worked . I hope this helps you. Thanks

My Makita battery charger does not work it is a model DC1414 purchased about 5 years ago


The battery could be bad after 5 years. Check the contacts on the charger with it plugged up using a volt meter to see if it's putting out.

Hi i broke the chuck on my 1/2 makita cordless


Put the biggest hex key you have in the chuck and tighten it then hit it clockwise with the spindle lock engaged a couple of times. The screw in the chuck will then undo clockwise and the chuck can be undone after by putting the allen key back in and unscrewing it anti-clockwise maybe with a light tap from a mallet.
Hope this helps

My Makita 3.0ah cordless drill does not drive anything when I put pressure on it. Would the clutch be worn and if so is it easy to repair?


Clutch is part of the transmission assy - yes it is about the only thing that it can be causing your issue. It is a fairly inexpensive and easy fix on Makita - the worst part is removing the chuck.
