I have a d25701 DeWalt hammer. It shuts off when you push on handle. Took it apart looking for bad wire. Found none. Put it back together and it don't run at all now. Any ideas other than take it in?

There are a few common issues that cause this:
1) Check your brushes(#44) - this tool has auto-stop brushes so when they reach a certain level the controller knows they are low, a little further and the auto stop springs push out preventing the brushes from contacting the armature.
2) It sounds crazy, but the fan (#46) can also be the problem. Inside the fan is a magnet that gets picked up by a sensor letting it know what rpm the motor is spinning. If the magnet is missing or broken the tool won't run or won't run to full speed. DeWALT D25701 Type 1 Hammer Parts

Demolition tool or breaker

The shaft from the motor to the drive gear is likely not working the action of the hammer. There is a gear which spins the gears to achieve the hammer action, suspect the gear is either stripped, broken or both.

Motor windings may be bad. All Dewalt tools can normally be rebuilt @ Dewalt store for $99.00. I have had 6 tools rebuilt @ that standard price. Dewalt site can give you nearest store. Batteries worn out?

Dewalt d25940k is a demolition hammer whith drill too?

No, the D25940K is not a Rotary Hammer. It is just a Demolition Hammer. (Jack Hammer). You can turn the chuck to adjust how your bit sits but that is it. Follow this link to the manual for this tool.,D25940.pdf

Hammer Drills differnces

Hammer Drills combine the rotation of a regular drill with a pounding action. These two actions enable the hammer drill to bore holes in masonry quickly without burning the bit.

Cannot engage hammer action

the problem is the metal part of the clutch that meets the pin from the transmission. remove the 4 screw from the clutch & check if the the inside of the clutch & the trans pin meets. all you can do is to push back the metal parts of the clutch setting.
