Power supply problem

My electric drill does not run anymore because its power supply is already damaged. It takes 6V and can rotate either clockwise or counterclockwise direction. It has a built inn battery which is rechargeable. I want to build a new power supply. Is there any schematic here diagram here?

Its sounds to me like an old drill and i would suggest probaly getting a new one, But if you love that one so much and would like some more life out of it you can easily connect it to a car battery (although this will eventually cause the motor to sh!t itself as car battery is 12 volts, but running the drill on a lower speed will help with the)
take the drill apart and find where the power goes to the motor (there will no doubt one goin through/connected to the trigger this will be the main power aka positive lead) using long wire (as you want to be able to move from the car battery) connect the terminals appropriatley with the positive and negative goin to the motor if it doesnt work you have it the wrong way around.
i know this because i have done it . god luck

The engine is running but does not have power.

If the generator has been sitting for a long time or was shut off with the load connected it has likely lost the residual magnetism that is required to excite the winding. This is a common problem. Always disconnect the load from the generator before stopping the engine!

The generator needs to be flashed. There are several was to achieve this, but safest would be to use an electric drill.
  • Connect an older style portable 120 volt drill to the running generator.
  • Make sure the drill is in forward not reverse
  • With the switch depressed rotate by hand the chuck of the drill in reverse
  • careful, the generator will flash, power up and rotate the drill in the forward direction..
Hope this helps?

  • Careful the generator will flash the windings and power up the drill

Sony handycam ccd-trv59e C32 10

The camera's firmware has sensed a jam or too slow rotation in the cassette's take-up roller. Really difficult to overcome. The tape may already be snarled round a roller, but is certainly in the "loaded" tape path. I've had this and had to disassemble the whole tape transport mechanism - which is really difficult - after trying unsuccessfully to drive the unload motor from an external 6v power supply. Sometimes a really hard sideways bang on the camera can free up the roller enough to let it rotate a bit, satisfy the motion sensor and allow an eject.

Trying to change drill bit on Craftsman Rotary Variable speed drill

Lock the spindle (small chrome button near the tool's nose or lever at the power switch). You'll probably need to rotate the spindle by hand as much as one full turn as you do this, to get the lock to drop into place.

With the spindle locked, use your supplied wrench to turn the collet nut counter-clockwise (as seen from the cutter end) about one full turn. The collet should now be plenty loose enough to release the cutter / wheel / drill.

Generator turns on and runs but no electricity coming from unit i tried a reset on the circuit buttons, any suggestions

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,

Since I don't have a model number to work with I am going to assume this is a generator with brushes. (I need your model number!)
Having said that... TRY THIS:
1. Plug in an electric drill to the output power plug and turn on the output power switch with the generator running.
2. Squeese the drill trigger switch and rotate the drill chuck as fast as you can. This will flash the field of the generator and often output power starts right away. NOTE: When power starts it will try and twist the drill chuck out of your hand. Just let go of the trigger and the drill chuck.

If you have an inverter type power head the steps are different for flashing the field. The easiest way is to do a male to male power cord from utility supply power connection and turn on the output power switch to re-establish a field in the PMG of the rotor.

There are other steps but without a model number this is what I am sending off at the moment. Respond with a model number if the steps above do not work and I will help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a Kupa/KP36 that is making noise but the bit is not rotating. I have check the cord for power, tried different outlets. Unplugged hand piece replugged it in changed bits and still the same result....

Sounds like the chuck holder is already worn and needs replacement.
If the motor still runs but the drill bit won't turn the problem would be the chuck adjuster( the one that holds the drill bit and tightens it ).
If the motor does not turn but there is a whining sound the problem would be the armature bushing ( it is inside the motor which the rotor/armature rotates). The armature does not turn anymore.
Fuse is out of question because the motor still have some power. Check also the motor brush.
Disassembling it requires to unscrew all the screws on the side and carefully remove the side cover, you can clean it and dust it off.
Hope that helps you out!

My promblem is that I already have a wr 1500 wireless parkervision but i cant fine my power supply .so my question to you is what power supply do i use? I have the manual but it show you what adapter to...

You could try asking them at:-

or, look closely at the router, a label probably underneath, for the voltage the box uses.
Probably 6v,9v or 12v then buy a universal ac adaptor which gives you the required voltage and the correct DC input plug to your device.

Ebay or more or less any electrical shop, if going to a shop, take the router with you, easier to check out the DC in plug.

Generator starts with and runs great, but theres no current on my toy hauler


If generators are not used regularly, they need the their magnetic field to be charged (or flashed). This can be done by plugging an electric motor into the socket while the generator is running and spin the motor by hand. The hand-spun motor will push some electric current back into the generator and magnetize it enough to start it.

Look in the manual. There is likely something about field flashing the magnetic field2.gif. The easiest way to do this is to.
1) start the generator
2) plug an electric drill into the generator (without drill bit)
3) make sure drill is set to forward direction (if a reversable drill.
4) pull the trigger on the drill.
5) If the drill does not start, spin the drill's chuck clockwise (When looking down at the chuck from the drill bit end). Spin counter-clockwise if holding it like a pistol and pointing away from yourself.
6) Do this several times (hard) until the the generator will kick in and suddenly make the drill spin at full speed.
Be careful not to drop the drill or poke someone with it as you celebrate success.

My generator runs but does not prouduce electricity

The basic cause is the rotating magnetic field has collapsed.

Causes of that can include blown rotating diodes, blown regulating capacitor, loss of magnetic remanence.

Search google for things to try. IF it is only loss of the small bit required magnetism, SOME have found plugging in an electric drill that DOES NOT have a throtle speed control and spining the drill with it switched on will create enough field to start the unit generating. Blown diodes or capacitor requires replacement of parts.

If the unit is a permanent magnet type (usually only small units) then there would be open circuit in the wiring or the rotor has somehow lost the magnetism.

SOME units have brushes to excite the field with a direct current. Loss of brush contact to the slip rings or the rectifier supplying the current will cause no output of the generator.

In your case, the Dewalt DG6000 is a brushless type. The most probable cause for the problem is the regulating capacitor. IF the unit has been overloaded or a short placed on it, then the rotating diode(s) have probably been shorted. Searching google you will find that there is a method using light bulbs in series from utility pwer to attempt recharging the rotor. This will ONLY work if the parts have not been damaged.
