Question about Black & Decker Drills & Drill/Drivers

1 Answer

I have an older model of the Black & Decker 0-1200 VSR drill.

I haven't used it for about a year. I just tried to use it, and it will not start up. Unfortunately, I don't have the owners manual. I was wondering if I could get some advice?

Can you use 18v lithium battery in old 18v drill


Yes you can. On tools, 18 volts is 18 volts. Tools don't 'know' how the power is being created, either by Ni-Cad or Li-Ion means. Chargers are totally different. Most Li-Ion chargers can charge older Ni-Cad and some Ni-MH batteries but older Ni-Cad chargers will charge Li-Ion battery untill they overheat and sometimes start on fire because older chargers can't detect when the Li-Ion batteries are full.

Loose white wire in B&D 7190 Type 2


If you look at the switch you will see a hole with a brass coloured contact inside. These are grip type connector where you push the wire in and it grips it. Try pushing the wire into the hole and see if you can pull it out again gently. If it holds you have fixed it.

Drill works in only one position


You most likely have a loose connection inside somewhere, when you turn the drill to another position it creates a gap in the connection, therefore breaking the circuit.

My old black & decker power screw driver will not accept a charge. I cannot get it charged up.


Black & Decker stopped doing battery packs for the older screwdrivers, like the 9018, some time ago so you cannot get them.

However you can still buy replacement NiCad, Sub C, 1.2v, tagged batteries that will do the job on the older 2.4v models as NiCad batteries for use in power tools are exempt under the European ban on importing NiCad batteries where used in power tools (Specific Exemption).

When you open up the screwdriver look at the positioning of the batteries and the tags/connectors and solder them together the same way.

So all you need is a soldering iron to join the centre tags together and then trim the end tags, top and bottom, to the width of the live/negative connectors and you have got a new battery pack.

It doesn't have to be pretty but after a small investment and a little effort it sure beats paying out £30 to £50 for a new screwdriver. I have done this for my older Black & Decker and Bosch screwdrivers which all work like new again.

I have a pink black & decker cordless drill which I use for small household tasks. However, my husband uses this too for small jobs. My problem is the ac adapter has gotten misplaced & I need one....


Contact Black and Decker (Dewalt) at 800-235-2000-you should be able to get number for an authorized repair center that can supply it for you-but it may be cheaper to replace the whole thing.

Black and decker cordless drill trigger


Ok, first check to see if the trigger lockout has been engaged, it's a small level at the top of the trigger ( I know this sounds silly, but it happens sometimes). Flip it side to side to see if you can hear the selector moving the switch inside the drill. If the selector moves freely without engaging the switch, you'll have to disassembly the drill housing to put the selector back into the lever so it will work.

Just take out all the screws in the housing and carefully remove the one side and look at the switch lever and make sure it is inside the slide selector lever.

If that isn't the issue, I'm afraid that the electric trigger/switch has failed and this isn't a part that can be disassembled and repaired by a DIY'er. I've attempted it when mine failed and found out it's a sealed unit and wrapped in a copper heat shield that dissapates heat when the variable speed is utilized and you end up destroying the switch housing in the process.

However, any DeWalt authorized repair center can do the repair for around $20 +/-, and if your drill is under the 3 year warranty period, it should be a free, warranty repair. Just contact DeWalt's customer service or your local Authorized Service Center (listed in phone book usually), or check the link for finding one near you.

www.dewalt.com or call 1-800-4-DEWALT (1-800-433-9258

Click on the "Services/Support" tab to get info. You can also buy the replacement parts if your drill is out of warranty (call them to verify before takin it apart!) and do the repair yourself.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
