Question about Panasonic EY6432GQKW 156V Cordless Drills

1 Answer

The drill motor runs fine, but the chuck doe not turn. It sounds like the clutch mechanism is trying to engage, but doesn't. Where can I send out for repair? I have been unable to find anyone that does repairs on these things. Is this an easy fix for a lay person if the problem is in the front chuck area? Thank, Claude

Hi, Claude, W/D here.
In the picture (above), the chuck can be adjusted by operating the yellow ring. Work the ring into several positions, and try the drill at each position. On the yellow band will be a picture of a drill bit, just past the highest number on the ring. Align the picture of the bit with the indicator. This should lock the clutch into the drilling position.
If this doesn't fix you up, you may need to disassemble the drill in order to determine where the problem is.

Can't engage drill or hammer settings on de walt dc 925 xrp

Try turning the ring to 2 or 3 and run the drill holding the chuck so the clutch slips then try turning it to drill setting. Also try to do it in different speed settings. If not it sounds like a fault in the gear module. It might just be a metal clip just under the clip in side. Undo the 4 screws holding the gearbox onto the housing and carefully remove it, you might see the fault or loads of dirt that needs cleaning. Go to for a drawing.

Motor works and spins but as soon as the drill touches the wall drill stops but motor keeps going.

Check the speed switch on top - sometimes it doesn't fully seat in the 1 or 2 position. Switch it to the opposite setting, run it, then switch back, until it seats properly. Also check the clutch control ring for the same issue.

Could be the clutch but before replacing try this first. Make sure the gear/switch selector is fully engaged, try shifting a couple times. Try rotating the clutch collar to increase the torque demand on it and if both these don't work you will probably need to see about replacing it. Let me know if you need more assistance.

The drill works but you can hold the chuck while operating the drill.

could be a couple problems, is the switch selector fully engaged in hi/low and is the clutch seting set for the proper torque.If both OK then I would have to think that you need a new clutch assembly

Ensure the clutch collar is turned to where the little drill bit Icon is top dead center of the drill. If this is so, and your gear selector switch is not between gears, you will need a clutch. If this is a 991 Type 1, you may be able to get away with just an output gear, which rides against the ball bearings of the clutch.
392755-00 Output Gear part #. Generally when it is that bad, you will have to remove the clutch from the transmission without taking off the chuck, because the needed resistance for that operation is simply not available.

Chuck not engaging

The speed selector is between two speeds or the output shaft from the motor to the chuck is broken/stripped. If your drill has a clutch setting you may check to make sure it is on the lowest number possible.

Try rotating the driver adjustment to make sure it is on a definate number, not in between or put it all the way to the drill position. A little 3-in-one oil does wonders as dirt and dust will keep it from rotating and engaging easly. If this does not work and the clutch is stripped, cost of rebuilding it is not worth it, usually 70% to 80% of a new one and other parts on it will wear out and you will be fixing it again. Good Luck

Release the belts and check if you can turn the chuck by habd, if the chuck won;t turn, two things could be wrong, 1) the quill bearings are bad or 2) the shaft that runs down thru the quill could ve rusted causing a restriction, if that's the case, WD 40 should loosen it.
