Smelled burning wire and then stopped running

It can also be a suppression capacitor by the switch , or the electric field itself one or both coil fiels are gone.

Drill sparks

To Short carbon brushes or the electric field is not in balance look if one of the brushes is shorter then replace the electric field but if its on both brushes the same blue and burning smell then the armature has gone , beware of the price and great differences between the kind of hammers.

Hilti TE14. It rotates slowly and i'm getting a burning smell from the area around the armiture?

I would bet the armature is shot for sure and possibly the field. When an armature shorts out it usually gives off excessive sparking from the brush area. When a field fails it will usually run very slow if at all.

Does not run any longer....smells like it is burning...

probable not worth repairing, if it smells then it got hot and might have melted the windings on the armature or field,, but take a look inside the handle area for any signs of burning and check the condition of the brushes before buying new one.

Makita HP1640 hammer drill dual mode - 2 hours

Exchanged Makita HP1640 hammer drill for a new one. The 2nd drill did the same thing in under an hour!! Will return for refund. Instructions say the Forward/Reverse switch must be in a full up or down position for the Hammer/Rotary switch to move; well, it is and the Hammer/Rotary switch still stops at a 1/2 way point between modes. Although I can still use the drill, instruction warnings say not to because it may potentially burn out the motor. I'll have to go with a different brand this 3rd time around. It seems to be a design flaw.

Keeps stoping (like its the trigger)

assuming the cords ok..

check the carbon brushes and the armatures commutator (also see if you smell anything burning)... if your thinking its the the handle and bypass the switch applying 115v directly to the motor wires that enter the load side of the swicth.

good luck

Dewalt cordless drill

You have burned out the drill motor, it is shorted, the battery smoked due to a direct short, one thing I don't understand why the thermal limiter didn't trip in battery pack, I would contact manufacturer and try to get hem to buy you a new drill.
