Happens on new Hitachi drills for some reason during the break in period. If you still get the smoke and problems, then take it back to the store for exchange if your within 30 days warranty. Call Hitachi and have them deal with it if your within your 1 year warranty.

There is smoke coming from rear end of drill BOSCH UNEO but drill operates slowly

You probably have debris in the drill. Try blowing compressed air into the vent to see if it clears. If not, the drill will need to be opened and thoroghly cleaned.

My CDI burnt out, the Rev counter went mad, CDI smoked, nd bike stopped with blown front & rear bulbs and a dead flat battery. I replaced all the above. a month later it's happened again, smoking CDI,...

Your regulator may have went bad. The regulator converts the ac charge produced from the alternator into the DC volts required to charge the battery. When they fail they can put out 5 times what the battery needs. Depending on your bike the regulator may be separate from the alternator. You should pick up a cheap volt meter. Once you get the bike running, use the volt meter to see what the bike is charging at. If you find the charge is above 14.8 V or that the voltage fluctuates to the extreme, ex. 14.2v, 8.2v, 12.7v all within a few seconds. then the regulator is probable. Another problem I have found is that the ground wire for wiring harness does not get hooked back up. This is a smaller ground wire that may plug into the main ground cable or sometimes is a separate lead connected to the battery. This will fry an entire system.

Batterys charged, drill wont work at all, tried switch positions no change still not working

Your brushes are bad. The more expensive drills have removable vent covers on the back of the drill, one each side. Under them you will find a plate about the size of a dime. carefully move the plate around pulling it up. There will be a spring with a copper wire connected to a graphite looking block. This is your brush, sends juice to your motor. If the spring looks burnt or the brush is broken you will need to order a new set. If they look good you can try blowing the motor out with air. If you have a black and decker or skill drill the motor is not repairable. New brushes cost less than $10.

Battery smoked during charging. How do I fix? What's wrong with it?

If your battery smoked, one or more of the cells inside burned up or shorted out. Unfortunately there is no way to fix a battery unless you have several bad batteries and the amount of patience reuqired to test individual cells and get enough to reassemble one good battery. You'll be further ahead to buy a new battery. Shop around the net, battery prices vary a lot but you are looking at spending around $135 for a new battery.

Hi i have a dewalt DC 988 combi drill, 4 years old. its starting to have a burning smell when used what are possible problems and solutions?

It all depends on what is burning I'm afraid. When in use, run your hand around the back of the machine and handle area to see if anywhere in particular is getting hot. On the older versions of these (DW988) the leads leading from the switch to the brush holders would overheat and burn, also causing damage to the brush holders themselves. Is there any smoke coming from the rear vents, if so you wil probably find it is a motor problem and the smell would be the insulation burning off the armature. The only other thing to check would be to make sure the battery isn't shorting and getting hot, as this could also cause damage to the switch and vice versa.

Motor fails to run when trigger depressed

sounds like your armature and field is burnt. once they have both got hot you need to replace the armature and field as well as the brushes and holders.

Hi i cant move my torque setting its just stuck on hammer and drill,speed ie 1 to 3 is okay but i cant get it to move to 1 to 21 is this a common problem thanks

You have an internal issue in the housing. Sometimes they will move while slowly operating the drill. If that does not work, the housing has to come apart, more specifically the head.

Can a bad ryobi 18 drill ruin a new 18volt ryobi battery

If the drill has a short in it, then yes, it could short the battery out. Probably in the trigger switch.

Drill causes my Battary to smoke & Burn out

Do you have more than one battery and if so do they both do this? It sounds like the batery has shorted out or possibly the switch is malfunctioning and creating the short either way I would not try and recharge a battery that has these symptoms. I actually had a NiCad battery catch on fire when I charged it not knowing the history of battery. There are repair centers that usually won't charge you to check batterys/drill or maybe a minimal fee but it is cheaper than replacing batterys constantly. Good luck. Dave

Dewalt cordless drill

You have burned out the drill motor, it is shorted, the battery smoked due to a direct short, one thing I don't understand why the thermal limiter didn't trip in battery pack, I would contact manufacturer and try to get hem to buy you a new drill.
