Make sure the torque selector which is the black ring with numbers and a drill symbol on it behind the chuck is rotated to the drill image for drilling and general purpose use.

It sounds like brushes that are worn out. If not the switch is a likely next culprit.
Good Luck

What model tool do you have?

Dewalt 18 Volt... | Answered on Jan 05, 2012


Well burning and smoke is either a switch or motor. Disconnect the motor and run it with battery voltage and no switch. If it's still slow and smokes it's the motor if not it's the switch. The other one sounds more like the switch but could be the motor. Testing would be the same as the other. On the 18 volt open it up and see if the reversing lever got hung up. It may be that you can line it back up and be ok. More likely it's a bad switch and needs to be replaced.
All these tools have static sensitive switches and need to be worked on at a static free work station.
Hope that helped..

Not totally. It could be the switch but I'd look at the motor first. Disconnect the motor and running with battery voltage. If it still runs slow it's the motor. Becareful with the switch it looks like a static sensitive switch and needs to be worked on at a static free work station. The motor part # is 492829-00 Cost $92.72 The switch is 368832-09 $ 48.91 . Those are suggested list prices may vary! Good luck!

Yes you can. Depending on the model of the tool it may not be the clutch causing your problem though. On some models the transmission is more likely the problem. Brushes create an ozone smell when the motor runs so that could be the smell. Does it run slow or get hot?

What model drill is it?

First this has a static sensetive switch so you must do this at a static free work station!
After you open the too disconnect the motor leads (Remember which one goes where) then take the shift lever out of the transmission. It just hooks in on the sides and will pop with a small screw driver blade. then you will have access to four #10 torx head screws that hold the transmission on to the motor. Remove those while holding the motor and transmission together. Carefully seperate them making sure all the pieces stay in the transmission. It's best to hold the assembely motor in the air when seperating them. Instal the new motor on the transmission by aligning the min on the motor with the notch on top of the transmission. Put in the for torx 10 screws. Reconnect the leads, put the shift lever back on making sure it aligns with the shift ring slots on the transmission. make sure the flat spring on the shift lever stayed on. If not find it or it will not stay in gear! Put the housing back together and you're done.

First before you open the tool ground yourself. The switch is probably static sensitive. Now open the tool and check for wires that may have come loose from the switch, or motor brush area. If no bad wires make sure the switch terminals are ok (not broken or bent and are tight enough to make contact with the batery terminals). Next check the brushes and make sure they move freely in the brush holders. You didn't state the model so it may not have brushes you can access. If all that is good disconnect the motor from the switch and secure the motor in a vise. Take wires with alligator clips and connect the battery directly to the motor for just a second to see if it runs. If the motor runs you have a bad switch assuming your battery is charged.

The serial number is on the label on the righthand side of the motor housing. The serial number is pretty unimportant though.When ordering parts the model and type number are the important numbers.

Dewalt 18 Volt... | Answered on Dec 16, 2011


you would need to replace the switch, the brake is internal. BEFORE removing the switch make a wiring diagram to help in reassembly and make sure the wires don't touch the motor. The switch is polarity sensitive. You can either get one from dewaltservicenet.com or ereplacementparts.com, you can also try and locate a service center or authorized repair in your area at the Dewalt site.

Hello. In the gear mechanism they use planetary gear set to get the torque they need to operate this hammer drill. What has happen is the gears are made of heavy duty type of PVC. Why, some how it strip off the teeth on some these gears and the only thing is work is electric motor moving broken gear around in that planetary gear housing.


Take it back where you bought this Dewalt drill and ask for a replacement. GB...stewbison
