The switch is stuck on my Nikota electric drill. What do I do?


You will have to take it apart to get to the trigger. Most likely the switch broke but it could be the spring is out of place. Very fixable. You should have no problem getting a replacement trigger if it is broken.

I have a Bosch 1/2"


Sounds as though you are on the right track. I would take it apart, and see if the trigger could have some dirt or other material causing it to stick, or is it worn to the point that it needs to be replaced. Good luck!

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,
Kelly

Electric Milwaukee drill locked in reverse


This is a common issue with drills, you can resolve the issue by purchasing a new trigger switch and installing it. It is a very simple task. all you will need is a screwdriver and about 10 minutes.

Black and decker cordless drill trigger


Ok, first check to see if the trigger lockout has been engaged, it's a small level at the top of the trigger ( I know this sounds silly, but it happens sometimes). Flip it side to side to see if you can hear the selector moving the switch inside the drill. If the selector moves freely without engaging the switch, you'll have to disassembly the drill housing to put the selector back into the lever so it will work.

Just take out all the screws in the housing and carefully remove the one side and look at the switch lever and make sure it is inside the slide selector lever.

If that isn't the issue, I'm afraid that the electric trigger/switch has failed and this isn't a part that can be disassembled and repaired by a DIY'er. I've attempted it when mine failed and found out it's a sealed unit and wrapped in a copper heat shield that dissapates heat when the variable speed is utilized and you end up destroying the switch housing in the process.

However, any DeWalt authorized repair center can do the repair for around $20 +/-, and if your drill is under the 3 year warranty period, it should be a free, warranty repair. Just contact DeWalt's customer service or your local Authorized Service Center (listed in phone book usually), or check the link for finding one near you.

www.dewalt.com or call 1-800-4-DEWALT (1-800-433-9258

Click on the "Services/Support" tab to get info. You can also buy the replacement parts if your drill is out of warranty (call them to verify before takin it apart!) and do the repair yourself.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Stopped working in mid drill. squeeze the trigger, nothing happens


It could be a dirty switch connection in the trigger assembly , it happens to me on my electric sanders all the time , just open it up and try blowing it out with an air compressor
