09 Most Cordless Drill Problems and Solutions

Drill and drivers are widely used for the drilling and driving process and it makes a lot of problems without working properly. Mostly domestic use drill and drivers are powered by the cordless power supply and we can charge it and reuse continuously. There are problems with both drills and batteries.

I have mentioned suitable reasons and solutions for that problem. That will be the most appropriate solution for that problem. So use your drill, driver, and battery correctly for a long time. So let’s keep read on until you solve it.

01. Why the Drill Is OverHeating?

Reasons

  • Use in a high-temperature area
  • More workload
  • Inner circuit short
  • No inside lubricants
  • Covering the ventilation
  • Apply more pressure to the tool

Solutions

  • Use tool in low temperature are (do not use in heavy sunlight)
  • Do not work continuously in more workload
  • Check the inner circuit and smell
  • Apply inner lubricants, grease on the bearings
  • When you use do not cove both side ventilations
  • Apply enough pressure to the tool. Do not pressure too much

02. Why the Drill is Slow Rotation?

Reasons

  • Batteries are not charged properly
  • The trigger is not pressed completely
  • Coil or wire partially burn
  • Brushes wearing out
  • Electrical path damage

Solutions

  • Charge the batteries 90% of their full capacity Do not charge 100% or discharge 0%
  • The trigger can be stuck due to dust or material parts. So check it
  • Due to the unexpected current or voltage armature coil can burn partially.
  • Brushes are wearing due to friction. It can not touch fully with the commutator. Check it
  • Due to long time usage, its inner electrical path can be damaged

03. Why Hammer Drill Mechanism is not Activated?

Reasons

  • Not applying sufficient pressure to the tool
  • The battery is not charged properly

Solutions

  • Applying a suitable pressure to the tool
  • Always use a fully charged battery

04. Why Impact Mechanism is not Activated?

Reasons

  • The tool is free rotations no workload
  • Not enough battery power
  • Inner friction

Solutions

  • The impact mechanism is activated with the workload. So use it with a screw and test it.
  • Use battery fully charged
  • Apply grease, lubricants inner as hammerhead hit and slip through the anvil

05. Why the Drill Batery is Not Charging Properly?

Reasons

  • Battery has dead
  • The charger is not connected to the battery
  • The power source is not activated
  • Inner circuit short
  • The battery is hot or cold

Solutions

  • If the battery is dead you can power up using the same battery. Check here
  • When dust, lubricants, chips have clogged the pins it can connect both charger and battery so check it
  • Check power source is connected to the correct power source and switch on
  • Due to heat and dust inner can be damages
  • When the battery is too hot and cold there is automatic protection system is activated. So you are not able to use it when this is activated. Keep the battery cool and then test it.

You can find Problems and Solutions about the Drill battery is not charging properly.

06. Why Drill is Smoking and Sparking?

Reasons

  • Brushes are wearing out
  • Debris is on the commutator and brushes
  • Ventilations are covered by hand
  • The bearing is not lubricating

Solutions

  • Use brand new brushes when it reaches 3/4 of length
  • Clean the brushes and commutator with an electrical cleaning compound
  • Do not cover ventilation by hand when you drill
  • Always repair and lubricate

07. Why Drill Battery is Overheating?

Reasons

  • Work in high temperature
  • Connect with more capacity tool
  • Continous working

Solutions

  • Do not work under high temperature
  • If you connect 18v in 24V tool battery will heat due to high current demand
  • Do not work by tool continuously. Let it cool

08. Why Drill Inside Smell Badly?

Reasons

  • Inner parts are melting when it heats up
  • Lubricants and grease can be heated up
  • Inner plastic can be melt due to heat
  • Overheating the tool

Solutions

  • When the tool heat inner coils, the plastic part can be melt when it heats up. So smell come out
  • Lubricants, grease can be mixed with dust and they can be heated when there is a high temperature
  • Let the tool cool down don’t use it rapidly

09. Why Drill Chuck Has Loosen?

Reason

  • chuck is lost due to the bearing ball is not moving properly inside the hex shank. So you had better check it and fix it. I will guide you to fix the lost chuck of the impact driver. check here

Solution

  • Replace the bearing ball and change the inner springs
