How to dis-assemble motor housing.

I am repairing a Hitachi hammer-drill. It is the old model TE-60. The wire has come off one of the carbon bushing housings. I can't figure out how to get the armature out of the motor housing so I can get in there and solder it back on. Can you tell me the trick to dis-assemble this beautiful tool. Thank you, Gerard. PS... I know this topic is outside of your category list. I hope you can give some suggestions.

Not outside my category list. Its a Hilti, not Hitachi, right? They are a tad tricky. Best thing is to go to in the tech center. Click Tech Center and then Tool Schematic list rotary/combihammers. Get the breakdown. there should be four screws that detach it from base, hard to see. May need allen wrench, can't remember. The fan comes off the armature, may also need small bearing puller. hope this helps. Please rate me

My makita cordless drill barely turns and is smoking

If it's pulling hard then gets hot enough to smoke your problem could be in either the motor or transmission. If you can, seperate the motor from the trans and try running the motor by itself. If it spins free and strong, you have a jammed transmission causing the motor to over heat. If it still labors your problem could be with the armature bearing(s), brushes, or armature windings.

I have a TE 60 hammer drill. It does not run . I looked at the brushes and they are wore .One of the wires to the brush is broken. Can you inform me on how to get replacement brushes?

If this is an older metal housing TE60 parts are no longer available. If the brushes are worn out then the commutator on the rotor is also probably worn. If it is a new version of the TE60 (introduced in 2009). Then parts are available for it.

Hilti TE 10 stopping and starting, suspect bushes need changing. How do I get to bushes? Removed x3 front screws and switch grub screw but drill will not pull apart. Don't want to force it incase something...

To get to the brushes all you need to do is remove the 3 screws on the back handle of the tool. No need to seperate the motor from the gear housing. Pull the back cover off and you have access to the brushes

The chuck on my old Hilti TE 60 is stripped.

Are you talking about the cap nut that threads onto the chuck? It is very rare that it would strip out. Word of warning if you do find one and thread it back on. You need to have a chisel in the chuck and have the chisel end locked in a vise. This protects from breaking the gear housing on the inside where the shift dog rides up and down.

Those parts are no longer available but you can still find some used on Ebay. Also the TE-72 used the same chuck parts.

Need brushes for an old style hilti te17

Hilti should be able to provide you with them. If not contact a local motor repair outlet and find brushes the same size, they are very easy to change on the TE series.

Failing that Hilti offers a trade-in program for their tools.

Hilti TE 17 Rotary Hammer repair switch fix The wirei loose how to reatach to motor?

If you are talking about the wire going from the switch to the stator it difficult to get to. You have to remove the motor end cap, cooling fan and handle holding the switch. this will get you to the brush holders. These can be brittle so you need to be carefull. Turn the motor over and tap the end of the armature on concrete checking the brush holders every couple of taps to see if they are coming out of the motor housing. after they clear they will just come out. If you havn't done so already remove the wires going to the brush holders. Your stator will simply slide out after your brush holder comes out. This will give you access to the wires to repair.

Hope this helps.

Need rear moter bushing for TE-17

Hilti has not carried parts for the TE17 for about 15 years. That tool was produced from the 60's up until the early 80's. The part you are looking for is an Oilite bushing that is held in the motor end cap. Even though the part is no longer available a good machine shop should be able to make you one.

Hilti TE-5 does not drill

Check the motor if the motor has power and then the gears are not working. If the motor doesnt have any power then you need to check for power. To get at the gears you are going to need to remove the chuck

Hilti TE-60 hammer drill

what I would do if you have a fax machine is call 1-800-879-8000 and request a schematic on this tool first. Some of their products are not that easy to disassemble. I never have worked on the TE-60 but have on some of their other products and they are all different. Hope this helps
