View Full Version : DEWALT 24 volt problem with drill

02-07-2011, 08:36 PM
Guys your my last resort and probably the best resort. Didn't no where to put this thread so here it is.

I have looked for an hour on the net for problem shooting our drill. Nothing. I found many places for parts, ordering, getting new ect. I have a DW006 Drill. When there is a bit in it it will turn but under load or pressure just by hand - nothing. Whats the deal and what do I need to order.

Too good of drill to let go unless it cost to much to repair!

Thanks for the info and time.

how old is the battery? I'd start there.

I think the battery si good. i have the sawsaz and skill saw. They work fine with the batteries. The drill runs but when put underload with a bit - the drill works but the chuck/bit does nothing. Just left dewalts website and nothing there either.

gonna have to take it in to a Authorized repair shop, sounds like the shaft is broke between the motor and the chuck, i had the same problem with my Rigid impact.

Hate taking it in. I have replaced a few things on our 18 volt stuff. Tricky to get back together but they all work great so far.

If not the batteries it might be the clutch thats in it. I burned one out on a milwaukee, it was stopping hard and clicking then it just went out and won't spin at all. Sounds like your stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Thats just it - tear apart and hope it all works when back together or forget the drill - keep batteries for the other tools and move on or go buy another 24 volt drill/hammer.

Your best bet is tearing it apart.

I agree-

Tear it apart, You will find that they are really not that complicated and you can figure out where issues are pretty quickly. Just make sure that you do it on a clean surface and be wary of small parts dropping out.

It is broke now... if you tear it apart and can't fix it, what are you out? A couple of hours? Tear it down and see if you can fix it... if not, scrap it.

Probably. If the clutch were slipping, it would be very noisy.
I'm not sure of that particular model, but DeWalt's I've repaired before often have a pin that goes through the shaft, which passes power to the gear, and that can break. Just the friction of the shaft on the gear will get the chuck to still turn a bit. If it's just that, it is an inexpensive part (unless you're handy enough to make something yourself), but gearboxes can be more difficult to reassemble than electronics in the original box.
How on earth to they get all that stuff into the cardboard boxes anyway? http://www.lawnsite.com/images/smilies/wink.gif
