Sounds like a switch problem. What happens when you switch direction is you switch polarity on the motor. if you open it there will be a part number on the switch which you might be able to buy a replacement of buy sticking this into ebay or google.

If debris enters the chuck it may no longer turn for adjustment. Spray plenty of wd40 into chuck and allow plenty of time for oil to do its magic. Hold chuck/drill pointing down and turn drill in both directions to clean out debris. If chuck is too far gone, remove the center screw (backwards thread) and remove the chuck(threaded on). Replace the chuck with new generic part from Lowes (about $25.).

Hitachi Cordless Impact Driver gearing problem


Hi there,

The speed shift slider switch wasn't lined up correctly when the unit was reassembled.

Unfortunately, you going to need to repeat the disassemble/reassemble process once more.

I've been there. It doesn't take much to be out of alignment. Set everything to the lowest setting (clutch, speed) and take your time.

Best regards
Mike

New cordless drill won't run with charged batteries


Does the drill do anything? Check in the cavity where the battery goes and make sure there is nothing there to prevent the battery contacts from connecting with switch. I take it the charger indicates the batterys are fully charged. If you cant see anything obvious I would take it back and get a replacement.
