SOURCE: Ive got a makita ZIC-26 hammer drill and the drill

if this is an SDS try grabbing the bit with some vice grips and jiggling it back and forth. DO Not do this when its plugged in or has a battery hooked up. (your model # did not mach an online search so I don't know what you've got. Also a bit of WD-40 or the like may help loosen it up.

My dewalt drill won't switch to hammer


I had the same problem. You need to manipulate either the speed or the torgue. In some cases both. Sometimes the drill/hammer feature gets stuck in between the two an this is the only way to fix it unless taking it apart but I wouldn't do that yourself. Best to take it back to the dealer or service shop

Dewalt dw511 hammer drill won't hammer, only


The hammer inside the drill head are most likely damaged ans/or broken, it is likely the best thing to do is just replace the tool.

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.

I bought a used Bosch Bulldog hammer drill on the internet some time ago and discovered it's not hammering. It will drill be almost no hammer action. Any suggestions?


There is an o-ring on the striker that will wear down over time, this needs to be changed, of worst case the striker has stuck in the hammer piston. Both these repairs should really be done by a service center as these hammer drills are complicated to repair if you are not familiar with them. Any Bosch service center will be able to help you. Just go to the Bosch website and find a center in your area.

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.
Best regards, --W/D--

Was using with a spsde bi and hit a nail. Now


You may have inadvertently hit the hammer/drill switch and it is floating the middle between functions. This selector switch has a symbol showing a drill bit on one side and a symbol of the hammer on the other. Engage the switch bacK into the drill position

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.
