You have an internal issue in the housing. Sometimes they will move while slowly operating the drill. If that does not work, the housing has to come apart, more specifically the head.

the drill apparently has created a short in the battery contacts. Look at the contacts and then the switch contacts, there might be a wire going to ground against the motor or the switch has shorted creating this problem.

you would probably need to replace the motor, go to Dewaltservicenet.com and type in your model number for a breakdown and also you can order parts from this site. Let me know if you need more assistance.

this is not a common problem with dewalt. I have been using them in my construction business for years and only heard of this once or twice. I would go to their web site and get the number for their customer service. They stand behind their products and im sure they will help in every way they can to repair the drill

the battery is bad, the fast flashing red indicated an internal short in the battery or it is consumed and needs to be replaced.

Try ebay, you may get replacement part for it or else it would be cheaper than anywhere else.

You may want to try a different charger base. Any way you can borrow one so you don't have to purchase first?
If for some reason the charger isn't working well, you may be getting a partial charge and only that.

You may even want to rent a cordless just to try charging your own battery on a different base.
before you buy.

The screw that holds the chuck on, is in the bottom of the chuck itself. If there is something jammed in the chuck, it must be removed in another manor. If the chuck is jammed, I have used two pair of channellocks to open the it.

You need a new switch. They are $53 at dewalt. You may also want to check the brushes while you are in there. If they are worn it is advisable to replace them both ($5 each).

Open the chuck and remove the screw that is down inside the chuck; it is probably a left hand thread

K I dont know what the same problem is but lose the caps and give me the model number and brand and the problem and I will see what I can do for you.

Dewalt DC920KA... | Answered on Aug 05, 2009

It sounds like the motor is burnt up, give me the model number and brand and I will try and find a schematic that will help you. They are not that bad to repair just watch how everything comes apart and pay close attention to the wiring of the switch, it is polarity sensitive.

Wait until you have problems with that Ridgid. Parts very hard to find. Ridgid Tools have great threading equipment like the 700 and 300, but their cordless tools are not easy to get help with. DeWalt has a very good warranty program. The dc920's have had a lot of clutch problems and switch recalls, though. Their saws (mitre, circular, etc.) Best in the business. Good luck, friend. Lemme know if you need anything. Please rate me.

Hi hope to help
sounds like you have a problem with your brushes they may just need replacing but do not strip the drill down to do this just take out the batery then take the 4 screws from the rear off the drill and take off the cover see if the brushes are worn it doesnt take a lot of wear to be worn.
You can take off the wire from each brush unit then use a small flat screwdriver to pop out the brush unit then replace you should be able to get the brushes from any dewalt stockest.
Hope that helps. Sean

Normally you would use a masonry bit to drill into ceramics eg tiles or bricks. if the plate is glazed it is better to stick some masking tape or adhesive backed paper on the area to be drilled to stop the drill bit slipping around. also i would be inclined to use a hand turned drill or a small battery powered drill if you have one to avoid breakage of the plate.
