Lithium batteries have a limited lifespan, typically 3 or 4 years, and their capacity between charges decreases over the years. To extend the lifetime of a battery it should be run completely flat after every few charges rather than topping it up. New batteries need to be charged several times and run flat under normal use before they gain their full capacity.
there is a problem with the charger and given the age I would take it to an authorized dealer and get a replacement. If you give me your general area I will try and locate one close to you. Please before voting if you need more assistance let me know. Thank you
WOW! Count yourself very lucky. Most batteries don't last half that time. The newer battery probably has a lower amp hour rating than the first one. When replacing the battery (and you must replace it) look for the one with the HIGHEST amp hours - which is usually written on the battery or packaging. You can also ask at a Batteries Plus store if they can re-build the original battery for you- since the unit is so old, and Makita might not make replacements for your drill. You could rebuild the battery yourself,it is only 12 AA or C batteries wired together, but ni-cads can be dangerous when soldering and can explode if you slip up. Best bet is to get a new or rebuilt battery.
there is a collar inside the clutch assemble that probably has the top of the teeth worn off. Unless you find a service center that has saved some good ones you probably will have to replace the whole clutch assembly.
When an AC motor is stalled, very high currents pass through the motor windings and melt the insulation on the windings; the smoke was the result of the motor winding insulation being melted. This causes a reduction in motor torque and premature failure.
You should suggest that your neighbor buy you a new drill and he keep the one that he ruined.
The problem could be the brushes and if so it is be quit easy to replace them by pulling the drill apart and slipping the old ones out of there sleeves on the armature and slipping the new ones back in there place . you can buy these brushes at any good tool shop . all you will need is the model number of the drill which you can locate on the side case of your drill . hope this helps.
