Question about Makita Lxfd01cw 18-Volt Compact Lithium-Ion Cordless 1/2-Inch Driv
When screwing in a screw it makes a grinding noise and won't screw in.
It sounds to me like the clutch is set to a low setting. Its the dial just behind the chuck with the numbers on it, you can turn it to adjust how easily the drill slips, the purpose of it is to make it easy not to strip screws or drive them in too far. Just turn it to a higher number or all the way and it should work fine. The setting its on is whichever number is on top of the drill (opposite the handle), there should be a little arrow on the body of the drill pointing to it. The highest setting will not be a number but an image of a drill bit, in this setting it will not slip at all. Some of these drills are also hammer drills (as the drill turns, the chuck will also "hammer" in the direction your drilling, this is for drilling into concrete and things like that and requires a special bit (if your drill has that there will be an image of a little hammer on the dial next to the image of the drill bit). I hope that helps, Good luck.
