Question about Drills
The drill is brand new but it was a display model. its not the battery, i already checked it with my other black and decker drill and charger... battery holds charge, and works in other drill. but doesnt in the new drill nor does the battery from my other drill (same 20v lithium battery) work in the new drill. im wondering if because it was a display model if there was something inside of it taken loose so that people couldnt actually use it in the store and if so can i fix it

Hi Firemedic13; Most chargers like yours have a fuse inside them. Remove the screws that hold the charger together. The fuse will be on the low voltage side of the transformer. Un-solder and replace it with one of the same value. If the charger is not held together with screws (doubtfull) you will have to carefully cut along the seam where they were glued together. A dremmel tool works good for this. After repairing use some ABS pipe glue to re-seal them together. If the fuse is not blown then the unit will require testing by someone that is proficient with a multimeter. Most times it is the transformer that has fried a wire. If the sides of the transformer have any burnt spots on it then it will be the culprit. Hope this has helped. Best regards; HELP2DIY Please dont forget to rate my answer.

If this is a newer tool it is probably a Torx drive screw usually a T20. The screw is LH thread and after removing it you will need to put some screws back in tool to remove the chuck. First shift the gear selector to the low setting and the clutch to the drill only. Next get a bent handle allen wrench about the capacity of the chuck install the short end of wrench in chuck and tighten. Put the chuck on a block or wood or a workbench to support is and turn the wrench to about a 30 degree angle in the counterclockwise position. The chuck has standard threads so you want to hit the wrench with a hammer to loosen it. This might take a few tries but it will work. Good luck

usually transistors have three legs, diodes have two arms all very confusing isn't it? resistors have two arms as well but not three legs or only two legs and no arms its all about arms and legs isn't it do not attempt this repair if you live at home
