Hi there,
This is simple to fix.It sounds like you need to replace the brushes.There are two types of brushes ones that are easy to change and one that have small holes in the front part of the brush housing that require a small piece of wire that runs through the holes and keeps the brushes in place for reassembly.The wires length will depend on the vent that is used to pull the wire out when the armature is back in place and the front piece is bolted back together.While the armature is out blow everything down with compressed air and use a hacksaw blade to clean the grooves between the metal plates on the armature and add a thin coating of grease to both ends of the armature If they need it you might want to clean out the holes that the armature ends seat in.Thank you for choosing FixYa.com and Good Luck!

I have a makita hr4011c rotary hammer drill, was working perfect then stopped, plugged into transformer but green light has come on on the drill but no action from the drill,


Did you check to see if the motor is even being energized.? If not check the switch. If yes, then check motor brushes.

What would be the most likely cause for my lxph05 brushless LXT hammer drill to intermittently not turn?


check the position of the forward/reverse switch as if it is not properly positioned the current doesn't know which way to spin the motor
check that switch for loose wire or being faulty

Bhp452 makita cordless drill smoking. how can i troubleshoot?


the switch or motor is wired incorrectly. These parts are polarity sensitive. The smoking I would assume is from the old switch and now the rotation is reversed. Let me know if you need more assistance.

Motor operates but drill has no power forward, only reverse.


you have a problem with the switch or the reversing lever. If you go to take it apart use caution that you do not disassemble the gear mechanism, you can find a breakdown and buy parts from them direct or they also have a locator at makitausa.com. I would look at the breakdown before trying to disassemble.

Hammer-drill mode switch wont move to drill position


Hello,
Try rotating the chuck to a different position, and trying it again. If it catches "between gears", it won't shift.

Makita HP1640 hammer drill dual mode - 2 hours


Exchanged Makita HP1640 hammer drill for a new one. The 2nd drill did the same thing in under an hour!! Will return for refund. Instructions say the Forward/Reverse switch must be in a full up or down position for the Hammer/Rotary switch to move; well, it is and the Hammer/Rotary switch still stops at a 1/2 way point between modes. Although I can still use the drill, instruction warnings say not to because it may potentially burn out the motor. I'll have to go with a different brand this 3rd time around. It seems to be a design flaw.

Drill motor runs at full speed as soon as plugged in


I would have to think that it is more of a switch issue than brushes. If you remove one half of the handle do you see that the switch is burnt? But either way the current has to run thru it and if it runs when plugged in the contacts have welded shut to complete the circuit would be me guess. You can get a switch almost anywhere or go to Makitausa.com and order it direct. Let me know what happens please.
