The Milwaukee tools have a 5 yr warranty on them so I would suggest either taking it back to the store where you bought it and they will send it to a service depot, or find a service center in your area and take it there. If you still have the instructions from the drill, there will be a list of service centers in the back. The main thing is don't pay for the repair it will be free.

You either have a break in the cord or the switch is open (broken electrical circuit). Sometimes the cord will get pinched or wound and the wires inside will break. A quick way to test a cord is to crimp the cord in your hand the entire length from the plug to the handle while holding the switch in the on position. If there is a break somewhere crimping the cord should make contact for a couple of seconds and you will get some power to the saw. The best way to check is to use a multi meter to check the continuity of the cord. You will have to remove the switch from the housing and use your meter on the cord. Set your meter to the ohms function and test the continuity of the load and line wires. (Touch one lead of the meter to the blade and the other to the corresponding wire that goes into the switch. Hint the polarized blade side - wide side- is the white wire and the smaller blade is the black wire.) If you have continuity through the wire you can check the switch next. Locate where the cord wires go into the switch and the other two wires that come out. Test at these two points while depressing the switch. If you have continuity in the switch and the cord you need to check the carbon brushes to see if they are worn or broken. If you need any assistance please post back and I will help.

Milwaukee 18volt cordless drill pull trigger motor bogs. Pull trigger motor speeds up and bogs down again, could it be bad switch or motor?


Most likely it is either dirt or a burned spot on the armature of the motor. I would try blasting it with air to see if you can clean it out. If that doesn't work then it probably needs to be torn down to either clean it or replace whatever is damaged.

Just bought a cordless Dewalt drill. Charged the battery, popped it on, drill will not start. What am I missing?


Dewalts have a lot of issues. Take it back quick to where you bought it and buy a Milwaukee.

OK there are quite a few things to look for. It seems that you are comfortable with some disassembly so lets go further. I dont know what model you have but it still might have a broken wire or the pins pulled out of the plug end. Look at that first. If you have power thru the switch I would next check the field and while there look at the "flag" terminals that go to the brush tubes, they had a habit of coming loose and stopping the tool. If this is the case you can remove the brushes and after pushing them back solder them to the brass tubes. Lastly roll the armature by hand and look for any serious discoloration or differences on the commutator. Let me know if I can help more.
