Just stopped working completely no power

This is an excellent tool, I have 3 myself and I've had similar issues. Here are a few things you can try.

1. Dewalt seems to have a glitch in the speed control slide on the top. I say this because with two of my drills I sometimes have to slide it from low speed to high, and then back again to get it to engauge.

2. I have also had to clean the contact points in the charger, as well as the ones on the drill.

I hope one of these will help resolve your issue.

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.

Hi hope to help
sounds like you have a problem with your brushes they may just need replacing but do not strip the drill down to do this just take out the batery then take the 4 screws from the rear off the drill and take off the cover see if the brushes are worn it doesnt take a lot of wear to be worn.
You can take off the wire from each brush unit then use a small flat screwdriver to pop out the brush unit then replace you should be able to get the brushes from any dewalt stockest.
Hope that helps. Sean

Dewalt 18v. cordless drill

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
