I suspect that the drill trigger has malfunctioned. I had a variable speed drill that the trigger went, and the replacement from Black and Decker cost more than the drill was worth.

My Makita 6402 drill stopped working. I press the trigger and it does not make any noise at all

You will need to have someone take it a part and see where the problem lies.
Start with the electrical plug, both the wall plug and inside the drill where the wire attaches to the switch.
Often, the switch is the problem, but the wire itself can be bad, if the cord is worn.
There is such a thing as the wire separating inside the cord.
We will hope the unit is not "toast".
God bless your efforts.

Generator turns on and runs but no electricity coming from unit i tried a reset on the circuit buttons, any suggestions

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,

Since I don't have a model number to work with I am going to assume this is a generator with brushes. (I need your model number!)
Having said that... TRY THIS:
1. Plug in an electric drill to the output power plug and turn on the output power switch with the generator running.
2. Squeese the drill trigger switch and rotate the drill chuck as fast as you can. This will flash the field of the generator and often output power starts right away. NOTE: When power starts it will try and twist the drill chuck out of your hand. Just let go of the trigger and the drill chuck.

If you have an inverter type power head the steps are different for flashing the field. The easiest way is to do a male to male power cord from utility supply power connection and turn on the output power switch to re-establish a field in the PMG of the rotor.

There are other steps but without a model number this is what I am sending off at the moment. Respond with a model number if the steps above do not work and I will help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I think the switch is U/S. I works sporadically, more often not. I've put a meter across it but cannot find a fault. Could it be something else in the handle?

Hello, Most of the time in my experience the problem is in the power cord where it enters the tool. How you can check this is by running the drill and moving the cord about 6 inches below the entrance to the drill. Move it in big circles, this will determine where it is broken. The same at the plug in end. More than likely it is near the entrance to the drill. Check the cord for damage as well. If you have the drill open, you can pull on the white and the black wires (separately) and sometimes the broken one will pull out. This can show you where the break is. You can then use the same cord and repair the drill.

Hi there i have a makita HR2470 and last week i was chasing out a wall and it just stopped mid chase,i checked the transformer it was connected too that was fine,then i've checked the lead at both ends all...

Try to make a direct JUMPER.Take an old electrical cord cable and plug it in the electric socket and the other end of the cord with 2 cables already peel off and jump the + and - to the + / - of the hammer and see if power on if so the on/off switch is bad and need to replace.If the problem
persist probably the motor is burn.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

just to be sure, plug something else into the same wall socket to make sure you have power there. If you have power at the wall and the TV has a detachable power cord, try the TV power cord in your computer to see if it works. Otherwise you probably have a faulty power supply in the TV.
