Dewalt 18v. cordless drill

My wife was putting in a screw with our Dewalt 18V. cordless drill. The wind blew her ponytail into the back of the drill, and it quit working. We have taken the back off and pulled as much of the hair out of it as we can. It still doesn't work. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help.

Hope to help.
hope your wife is ok!!
you need to get all the hair out firstly but DO NOT touch the exposed switch as it is a static switch and can fail by the tatic in you!
the problem may be that the brushes were damaged try replacing them see how that goes.
hope this helps. Sean

I bought new batteries for ,my dewalt dw958 drill and when I put the battery in, the drill ran for about 45 seconds then started to smoke and the drill died. The batteries are dewalt 18v xrp batteris

I am thinking the switch or motor is bad, check the switch first. you can locate parts at Make a wiring diagram before removing anything, these parts are polarity sensitive.

How to remove a chuck from a DeWalt hand drill

Open chuck all the way (like for a large drill bit). There should be a set screw at the bottom (where you would put a drill bit). Don't turn too hard - it may be a left handed screw (I don't remember if it is a lefty for sure but try gently each way then with a bit more force each way until it moves).

Good luck.
