Do you have a second battery to check whether the fault is with the drill or the battery?
If you have more than one battery and you experience power loss with both, confirm that the charger is charging properly by using a different charger, if possible.
Sounds like it might be time to purchase a new battery. You could take it to a local Makita distributor and try a fresh battery to see if that does it, but after time even these rechargeable batteries need to be replaced.
I'd say that's the culprit 90+% of the time.

Thanks for trying FixYa!

Can you fix a lithium battery?


The Makita 18V LXT Lithium - Ion Cordless Impact Driver Kit Model BTD140 us the BL1830 battery, there are several types for it, 1.5Ah, 3.0Ah, 4.0 Ah. Maybe 5.0Ah battery for it will be available. And, the inside of the BL1830 uses the 18650 battery cell. If you have a good knowledge and skill about electronic, you can buy some 18650 cell to do it yourself. If not, I suggest you to buy a brand new one.

You can buy some original battery for replacement battery for Makita BTD140 Battery

Makita 6935fd doesnt go into impact mode, just stops like a normal screwdriver. Both batteries tested 15 plus volts. any answeres?


could be a problem with the impact hammer, I would suggest removing the front housing to make sure not sticking or hung up on the anvil. Make note of how you remove the gear housing to you can reassemble. Also you might want to go to makitausa.com first and download a breakdown for the tool

I have a 18 volt makita cordless impact driver i can not get the driver bit out it seems to be stuck in the chuck very tight


Try holding the bit with pliers and running in reverse, maybe with a shot of oil. That might free it up. You can also try tapping it (firmly) on the side of the bit

Hi my makita 18v impact driver seems to be getting alot weaker throughout the years, still works but no enough torqe


Lithium batteries have a limited lifespan, typically 3 or 4 years, and their capacity between charges decreases over the years.
To extend the lifetime of a battery it should be run completely flat after every few charges rather than topping it up. New batteries need to be charged several times and run flat under normal use before they gain their full capacity.

My makita impact driver has lost power. it seems to be using the hammer much more and seems to be slipping. both the hammer and the andvil don't appear worn. the bushes are fine. what could be the problem?


This is more then likely caused by the plastic gears inside the drill wearing down. Makita may replace/repair under warranty depending on when you purchased the drill.

I have a Makita #6347d, when I have been using the drill I had some smoke from the battery connection to the drill and the housing of the drill had some smell of smoke. Whats up? Thanks, Bill


Check what gear you in, the Makita will smoke if you exert to much torque, consider buying a decent impact driver? If its not under much pressure then it may be a fault with the drill. I have owned one and it was reliable but sometimes under-powered for an 18volt compared with others on the market.
Hope this helps
