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

Go to and under the heading Factory and authorized service centers type in your model number and you should be able to download a manual. I had a couple of these when I worked for Makita and when running they are great. Good Luck. Dave

Snap on tools have a very nice cylindrical magnet about 1/4" diameter that will fit inside the end of the chuck. If you release the clamp it should pull out.

The Mfg. website will have a list of authorized service centers and manuals & parts lists if you choose to replace it yourself. Use a digital camera and take photos as you take it apart.

Makita 12 Volt... | Answered on Jun 03, 2020

Is this a 110Volt version that you plugged into 220v?

There is a ceramic Fuse inside the unit that might be blown. It is the first thing on the circuit board near the power cord connection.

Open the unit up and post a photo of any burned components ?

Hi there the solution for how to mod a DC18RA charger can be found here. The "how to" comes with pictures and descriptions and it should be easy to follow, and best of all it works :)

Makita 18V LXT... | Answered on Nov 25, 2019

What has happened is the hex part of the bit has twisted slightly making it hard to remove. What I would do if you are comfortable with partial disassembly is remove the quick release mechanish. There is a split ring that comes off first and then a washer and spring, next remove the outer collar and SMALL steel ball from side of chuck. I take a pick (dental tool) and push up or try and twist the stuck bit. Sometimes it takes while but usually this works. Let me know if I can try and help further.

The brushes are probably wearing out. They can also smoke if they get dirt or something on them. You can take the drill apart and replace the brushes, but if they are just burned some, take some fine sand paper or emery cloth and polish the armature where they run and clean the brushes and reinstall.
