Re: makita core drill model8406

Hi the 8406 was common for the intermediat gear to go have you yet stripped the gear box?
Quick test wear gloves to do this!
Turn on the drill if the chuck does not turn spin the chuck with a gloved hand TAKE CARE!! if the chuck catches grip one of the gears are gone.
Hope this helps let me know. Sean

My Makita impact driver led light stays on soon as the battery is clicked in. Any idea whats wrong and how I can fix it?

My Makita drill stops spinning mid drill and starts again whilst stopped it makes a horrible grinding noise. Can anyone tell me what is causing this? And how do I fix it?

as with any power tool there are gears attached and when things are used they wear . the stopping might be a dirty connection . and being under the load when it stops puts much more stress on the moving parts .you could open it and grease it goos , cleaning the contacts at the same time but sooner or later it will go again ,and possibly never restart .

Have a new Makita DF330DW and the clutch started slipping out of nowhere. The drill will turn in fwd and rev but as soon as there's any resistance, it quits spinning. I have run it through all of...

Definitely a faulty clutch. Take it back to where you bought it (if it was recent), otherwise send it or go to a Makita Service Centre.

Hope that helps

My Makita 3.0ah cordless drill does not drive anything when I put pressure on it. Would the clutch be worn and if so is it easy to repair?

Clutch is part of the transmission assy - yes it is about the only thing that it can be causing your issue. It is a fairly inexpensive and easy fix on Makita - the worst part is removing the chuck.

Makita 6349DWDE 18V Cordless Clutch

could be the clutch needs replaced, but I would check to make sure the high/low switch is fully engaged. Inside the clutch there is ring gear that could have the teeth rounded off I would go to and type in your model number for a breakdown so you can see what you are getting into, they are not that hard if you are mechanically inclined and just watch how you do it.

Clutch slipping on cordless drill. need spare parts to repair.

Are you sure you do not have a tourque adjustment problem. If not I do not believe Makita will want to send you parts,you would have to know what is precisely wrong and by the time you went back and forth you might as well find nearest dealer for repairs and google search for service parts near you + zip code to get your drill fixed.

Thanks , Please rate jj505

My Makita handrill is not working. It's just like loose,and the drill is not rotating anymore.

Your bearings in the Clutch have fallen out of place. 
Basically the tension screws pulling the clutch against the body.
Have became loose. If you Tighten them most likely wont fix it.
You should contact Makita. If you do open the drill. The Clutch assembly will be a task to reassemble. And the warranty might be voided.
