Question about Dewalt DW056 18 Volt Cordless Impact Driver - 1/4" Drive Hex Shank (Battery Charger and Case Not Included) - Tool Only

Troubleshooting DeWalt DW567 Type 1 1" SDS Rotary Hammer

I need to know how to troubleshoot the above rotary hammer. The cord is plugged in and there is power to the trigger switch. When the trigger is pulled, there is no response. Using a VOA meter, how do I determine if the problem is the 324556-49 switch or the 324552-02 module or perhaps some other electrical component. DeWalt customer assistance was of no help. Please note that that the "Product" below is different from the "Subject" above. I previously tried to submit this request, but kept getting the message to "enter a valid product". After a couple of emails to FixYa support, I was instructed to choose any DeWalt product for the "Product" field and then click "Get Assistance". Thank you in advance for your prompt reply and assistance.

    Thank you for your response. Due to my having a senior moment, I neglected to check the brushes. They are worn out. I will order a set and install. The fields checked OK as did the segments on the armature. Upon receipt of the brushes, I will install and report back. Thank you for jump starting my mind.

Hope to help but may need more info what problem are you having is it just not working?
did it just stop one day?
did it smoke? or splutter then stop?
have you checked all the segments (copper strips that the brushes rub against) on the armature are still on.
Are your brushes ok?
One problem I used to get a lot on that model is the field, the field is the part that sits around the armature with all copper windings on this sits inside a plastic case called a "jam pot" if you look at the field you will see the windins of copper are connected to 4 terminals, picture the field as 2 halfs top and bottom 2 terminals on top 2 on the bottom now the top 2 terminals should have continuerty through because they are wound together and the same with the bottom so if you get cont through the top and bottom the field is ok if not the field is faulty.
Hope this helps. Sean

My dewalt dc223 has a normal chuck on it but no sds chuck.. will this stop the hammer or is it broken?

If someone replaced the chuck the hammer part likely failed and it's a normal drill now, the hammer function would destroy a regular chuck.

Do all sds drills have chisel function?

The SDS designation relates more to the type of chuck on the tool for the bits than to the tool/drill itself. There are both chisels and drill bits with SDS-Plus and SDS-Max shanks, SDS-Max being the the larger of the two. As far as the tools go: Demolition hammers will only hammer and can only use pointed chisels, scaling chisels, scrapers, etc, not anything like a drill bit that requires spinning to work. Rotary hammers can hammer and rotate the bits. Rotary hammers have a selector switch with two or three positions; one for hammer only for the above demolition bits, one for rotary hammer for use with carbite tipped drill bits, and some have a position for rotation only. The rotary hammer is a more versitile tool but more expensive because of extra workings inside.

Motor windings may be bad. All Dewalt tools can normally be rebuilt @ Dewalt store for $99.00. I have had 6 tools rebuilt @ that standard price. Dewalt site can give you nearest store. Batteries worn out?

Hammer drills types

Two drive systems are available on both the hammer drill and the rotary hammer models: 1. SDS (or Slotted Drive System) bits for hammer drills/rotary hammers allow the bit to slide in the chuck and enhance the hammering action of the tool. For most applications, these bits provide plenty of torque. 2. SDS Max bits are similar to SDS bits, but have larger shanks and come in larger sizes than SDS bits. These powerful bits are useful in industrial applications.
