Makita hammer drill does not work but green light shows


Could be a stuck brush. Take the covers of the brushes and check they are long enough and move easily back & forth.

Makita cordless drill


It sounds to me like the clutch is set to a low setting. Its the dial just behind the chuck with the numbers on it, you can turn it to adjust how easily the drill slips, the purpose of it is to make it easy not to strip screws or drive them in too far. Just turn it to a higher number or all the way and it should work fine. The setting its on is whichever number is on top of the drill (opposite the handle), there should be a little arrow on the body of the drill pointing to it. The highest setting will not be a number but an image of a drill bit, in this setting it will not slip at all. Some of these drills are also hammer drills (as the drill turns, the chuck will also "hammer" in the direction your drilling, this is for drilling into concrete and things like that and requires a special bit (if your drill has that there will be an image of a little hammer on the dial next to the image of the drill bit). I hope that helps, Good luck.

Makita HR4041C rotary hammer drill


There is no tension to adjust on the Makita HR4041C rotary hammer drill. If you are not getting the hammer action you think you should be it's possible the o-rings on the piston are damaged or not lubricated or the striker is stuck or not lubricated enough to work properly. If you're having problems with the bit turning, there are several gears that turn the bit that could be slipping or are stripped. If you need a manual or brakedown of the tool, one is available on www.makitatools.com. The insides of rotary hammers are fairly complicated so be carefull of what goes where if you decide to take the tool apart to check for internal problems.

Gears slipping


Many of these have a torque clutch that is used in screwdriver mode that will slip when a certain torque is reached as set by the ring around the chuck area. If you want it to not slip, usually you set it on a symbol that looks like a twist drill.

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.

Makita 6349DWDE 18V Cordless Clutch


could be the clutch needs replaced, but I would check to make sure the high/low switch is fully engaged. Inside the clutch there is ring gear that could have the teeth rounded off I would go to Makitatools.com and type in your model number for a breakdown so you can see what you are getting into, they are not that hard if you are mechanically inclined and just watch how you do it.

Clutch slipping on cordless drill. need spare parts to repair.


Are you sure you do not have a tourque adjustment problem. If not I do not believe Makita will want to send you parts,you would have to know what is precisely wrong and by the time you went back and forth you might as well find nearest dealer for repairs and google search Makita.com for service parts near you + zip code to get your drill fixed.
