Question about Makita 2 Bl1830 18v Battery,dc18ra Charger Lxt Fr Drill
I have 6916D that is acting like it has a run down battery . The removed battery will show 13+ volts . There seems to be more power in reverse . The brushes are good and no sign of any thing out of order inside . Any ideas ?
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!
