Dewalt DW911 jobsite radio

Shut down. I think I plugged into a non-polarized outlet. Is there a fuse? How does one open the dang thing?

    Mine quit also, just wish to open the case, removed all 8 screws, wouldn't open, so took off frame and speaker covers, still won't open... Anyone have a clue how to get this open?

    I have a Dewalt DW911 job-site Radio. There is no heartbeat at all. I've checked both fuses and all OK. I suspect maybe the power PCB assembly board is defective, but not sure. The replacement indicated by e-eplacement shows a blue box on the power end of the board, and mine only has a couple of jumper wires and no blue box. I suspect the relay box which is in a sealed plastic clear box on this board but not too sure. I don't want to spend a bunch of $$ on this experimenting around. Can anyone suggest any ideas or should I just scrap the radio??

    insert straight slot screwdriver between the two halves (obscure are is best) then hit with rubber mallet and pry.

    Mine stopped working a second time. The first time it was the fuse. People mention a second fuse but I don't see that second fuse. Any idea where there is a diagram to identify it?

Got mine open.

There was a fuse inside - Replaceable - fixed the problem.

There were no hidden screws, none under stickers or in the battery box like suggested by others, and the 2 magic release screws not so. There are several deep screws requiring a long philips, but the entire seam is glued (why?) so to open the radio I had to hit the body near the seam with a rubber hammer to crack the seam loose once all the screws were removed, comes right apart. Put it back together without glue, just the screws, it will be fine.

    Also, check all the powerlines with a volt meter (the thing beats when your line is good). My husband's had a powerline that was loose, like the epoxy cracked and got lose. After that, clapped my hands and cheered. Finally worked. Those radios are expensive. Nice to know we don't have to spend more money :-)

    Wanted to thank you for taking the time to share this info. I would've done a lot more damage trying to find the "missing" screws if you hadn't figured this out and posted it first. This was a curb-score; replaced the blown fused and it's good as new.

Also check transformer on the bottom right corner. in the U.S.A.
2 black wire should have 120 AC Volt in, and 2 yellow wire 15 AC Volt out. You might have to under solider the yellow wire to get a correct ac reading.

Yes the rubber mallet is the answer. hit along seam on the sides and it worked like a charm.

Posted on Jul 24, 2010

Yes there is a fuse inside. It is an automotive style glass case fuse on the power supply board. The fuse was the fix for mine that mysteriously stopped working... Probably charged a bad power pack that over currented it.

To get the case open, yes obviously you must remove all of the screws on the back (about 8), none were hidden under stickers, or inside the battery box as others have suggested in this forum, however some did require a very long philips to access. Once all are removed, you must beat on the case in a long vacant section with a rubber mallet (perhaps near the seam) to get the seam to break loose. Aparantly DeWalt "glued" the seam for some reason. That was the mystery. Once you get it started, the whole thing will break loose, and it didn't break the plastic or tear the mating materials. All was fine. Fix it and put it back together with just the screws, no glue and you should be OK.

Too bad I couldn't find this answer before I started, because I did some damage to my radio trying other ways to get it apart before I finally got out the hammer and beat on it - Pop - Came right apart no damage!!!.

Dewalt radio dw911 will play on mains but nothing with battery only


If you pull of the back cover you will find two small fuses near power supply, one of these allows power from battery pack, check with voltmeter for open circuit, I take it that it is not just one battery it does this with.

Can I power a small appliance with my dewalt


This is what dewalt is saying...The Dewalt 12V/20V MAX work-site charger/radio functions as an AM/FM radio and recharges your 12V/20V Dewalt batteries (batteries not included). The 3-stage charger can recharge your batteries in as little as 1 hour, and the radio can run off 12V/20V batteries for cordless operation
  • 2 AC power outlets offer more versatility for jobsite power
  • Auxillary & USB ports allows for connection to CD, MP3, portable satellite receivers, and other digital audio devices.
  • USB port allows device to be charged via USB when radio is plugged into a wall outlet
  • Class D amplifier, woofers and tweeters provide full range of high and low sound for optimum sound quality,( hope this helps)

I have a Dewalt radio (Dw911) that will only play off the battery, not the power cord. I have checked both fuses and found both to be good. It sounds as if this is a common issue but I have found no...


Mine had the same problem .Try swapping the fuses. Although the fuse looked good mine was bad. Easy fix I hope. Going to auto parts store for new ones.

My dewalt dw911 radio/charger works on either mains or battery but wont charge a battery and blows an internal fuse when both are used together


More than likely your internal charger is faulty. Inside your inernal charger unit check the 2 anmp fuse which is white in colour.

Sorry but does the dw911 xe type 1 radio charge the battery


Yes, the DeWalt radio will recharge the batteries, from the 12 Volt to 18 Volt versions. However, even with the radio plugged into an AC outlet, you have to either have the radio turned on, or have the unit in the AUX setting, in order for the batteries to get charged.

It typicaly takes about an hour +/- to fully charge a discharged battery. I normally don't put batteries directly into a charger right after they become discharged from being used in a tool, since they are still warm from use and charging them will generate more heat in the recharging
process.

Heat is the enemy of rechargeable batteries, so to get the longest working life out of your batteries, I'd let them cool down first, before recharging them, unless you absolutely need to use them right away, then go ahead and recharge them. If you can delay recharging them until they've cooled down, you'll get a more fuller recharge out of them.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
