Makita 6337D cordless drill problem

Hi there-

I have a drill, a little over a year old (no more warranty), that I haven't used more that about 3 or 4 times. All of a sudden, it stops working. When I pull the trigger, it seems like the drill is snagged on something and there is a distinct buzzing noise just above my left thumb, when holding it. i made sure and recharged the batteries, but the same thing happened. Any ideas? Thanks.

(sorry, no applicable product category)

    I was using the drill and suddenly the chuck quick turning.

    The motor is turning when I pull the triggger, but the chuck is free.

    If ther is no torque the chuck turns a little when running, but if you grab it the motor runs just as fast but the chuck stops. could the chuck have become disengaged somehow?

    The drill still works but the gear box slips when any pressure is applied. Will not buy another makita product.

I have a 6337D makita cordless and the gear box slips and grinds when very little pressure is applied. I took the gear box apart and it is all plastic. I think I will invest the $50.00 dollars into a better drill instead of a new plastic part.

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.

I have had my makita combo drill driver set for a week over a year. The bl1815 battery won't charge .. I haven't used it for a few months.. (2).. but the other battery is fine? What do I do? Home...

Mail it to a Makita Service center. They will replace a battery that has under 150 charges, regardless of warranty. They have a design defect in the battery which causes these spurious failures. Hopefully one day they will fix it.

Makita 14 volt cordless drill, model 4337, just decided to slowl down and go dead.\r\ndrill is beyond warranty period and has been used only 5 or 6 times. does any one have any ideas???

The batterys don't last for ever dosn't really matter how many times you use it but never leave it in the garage or cold places that will distory the battery life and mermorey. Its a good gun so it may be worth getting new batterys just try to run them down all the way before recharging and never leave batterys in the cold and it will work and least 3 to 4 years before you need new batterys

I have a 6337D which has 16 position torque settings. I do not have any torque measurement device. This said, what does each setting represent in terms of a torque value? Thanks for your help.

Good luck finding any actual documentation on this one. The only thing I could think of would be to put a rag in a vise and clamp the drill in the vise after chucking up a bolt. Set the wrench for your desired torque and adjust the clutch on the drill until the wrench indicates the clutch torque value is what you desire...just a thought.
Take care.

I have a 24v SDS drill, and have not abused it or over worked. But the batteries do not accept a full charge, this is very disappointing as the drill is great, do i have to take batteries appart to find...

DO NOT Take the Batteries apart, you will see nothing more than a bunch of cells and if they are less than 1 year old than they may still be covered by Makita's warranty. Makita will Void that warranty if you open the batteries. Contact their service center they should be able to tell the age of your tool from the serial number or date code stamped in the tool. or 1-800-4-Makita
If they are older than a year old you are out of Luck. While you cared for your tools, Hammerdrilling in general is an abusive application for batteries and will discharge the batteries quickly and reduce the number of recharges you will get on the battery. I always recommend people always use their cordless Hammerdrills only when corded power is not available

The gears are slipping with my 6 month old Makita DF030D cordless drill driver. I'm not sure if the warranty was sent? Can a DIYer fix this? Can I get parts? Thanks in advance. Bob O

They usually don't require the warranty card be sent in. they can check the serial # to tell when it was manufactured.

If it was made in the last year or so they will cover it. If it's a couple of years old you would need to fiv it yourself.

If you are good with mechanical stuff you can fix it. Parts are available from Makita or tool repair centers.

Hope this helps
