I have had and still do own these drills. The only thing that comes to mind is a faulty trigger. Try the battery in another tool or drill.

When you put the battery in the charger, does the light go on? The charger has lights to indicate whether the battery is fully charged or not. If it is dead when you put it in the charger and remains that way after one hour, you can be pretty sure that the battery is dead. If there are NO lights on the charger, plug it into a different outlet and recheck. Not using the drill for long periods of time is really not good for the battery. The drill is probably ok, but the charger or battery could be the problem.

    Hi, sorry it took me so long to respond, but I didn't see your comment until now. My bad, I'm new. The battery is probably dead. Batteries last longer when they are frequently used and recharged. To be really sure about your battery, check the metal parts that engage when the battery is put into the drill and the charger. If you have a tester, your can also check the prongs from the battery to see if they emit a charge. They shouldn't be bent or blocked in either the battery or the drill. Again, sorry about my delay.

Hi my makita 18v impact driver seems to be getting alot weaker throughout the years, still works but no enough torqe


Lithium batteries have a limited lifespan, typically 3 or 4 years, and their capacity between charges decreases over the years.
To extend the lifetime of a battery it should be run completely flat after every few charges rather than topping it up. New batteries need to be charged several times and run flat under normal use before they gain their full capacity.

At first it does sound like the batteries.

How old is the drill? If it's old, then the batteries may either be dead, or need a careful, slow charge overnight to charge them properly. If new, then they may also need a really nice slow charge.

Sorry to ask, but have you fully charged all the batteries you have tried? !!! Many rechargeables lose a great portion of their charge if they sit for a long time.

Also, when using the drill, never use it until it runs the battery down so far stops, as this can damage batteries or discharge them to where again you need to very carefully charge them to get full charge back again.

Have you overloaded the drill:any plastic smells or have you drilled too hard and stalled it for a long time? That could cause motor damage. But look to the batteries first.

My new drill suddenly stopped working even though the battery has been charged OK.


Is it Nano li-ion? have you got another spare battery to double- check?
I experienced the same problem with 18V Dewalt nano li-ion battery. Was fully charged, came to work- Dead!!! I was lucky I had spare one, so then i was ok, but anyways had to buy a new one. Check on these things:
1. Battery is faulty. If u have any chances to ask someone who has the same gun (voltage is very important!!! has to be the same!!!- 12V battery to 12V gun, 14.4 to 14.4, 18 to 18 etc). Put your battery into that other gun. If You find the same problem that means your battery is dead.
2.Gun with battery contacts. If you 100% sure, that batterIES (check 2 batteries, or more) are OK, check bottom contacts where u put battery in, use WD40, or similar to clean them.
3. Least common Dewalt thing (Most common in Panasonic drills) is trigger contacts.
Basically i do not know what model is your dewalt, i was only talking in general, but there are no miracles- stopped working suddenly, and what u describe new, for instance my new drill dw727kd is less than 1 year old, i was too stuppid to open that battery myself to void warranty :(
AAAAHHH!!!!!! One more thing - If you have not tried to open these screws- check your nearest Dewalt authorised repair center- new NANO batteries have 2year warranty!

Makita 6337D cordless drill problem


It is possible that the batteries are no longer good. They may need to be changed. These batteries do reach a stage where they no longer hold charge.

On rare occasions I have seen the gear box jam or the motor bearings go defective.
