SOURCE: stuck chisel

if you have access to a vise I would lock the chisel in it and pull on the release collar and then take a dead blow hammer and "tap" on the drill to try and pull it away from the chisel.

The o-rings are probably worn out. Take it to a service center and have them diagnose it. It most likely will need a service kit installed.

SOURCE: hilti te 56 combi hammer not working

The gears inside that engage the chisel points to move back and forth are either not alligned properly or are stripped. You'll have to open up the hammer to see what, exactly, is the problem.

Hitachi H65sb electric demolition hammer. Motor works OK but will only sometimes break concrete. The machine wil vibrate in your hand and appears that this energy is not transferring to the chisel point....

Could be a stuck impact bolt, try banging the chisel hard against the concrete and see if it makes a difference. If not it is probably an internal piston/cylinder fault. Take it to a repair centre. You can get a drawing from Hitachi's web site if you wish to do it yourself.

Hi, I hope both of my problems are related. The chisel is "stuck" and won't release. Also, the unit does not "hammer". The motor runs and when I select drill the unit spins. I...

you need to get that chisel out. If it was hammering with it before the end of the chisel might have broken and not coming into contact with the striker, if it did not then the end of the chisel might be damaged not allowing it to seat fully, either way get the chisel out and put in a regular bit and it will probably work.

Hammer not moving back

Do you mean with a load on it. or without? In other words, while the air hammer is pointed downward, if you put (example, the chisel tip) against a surface to be cut/hammered/etc., it doesn't work? Because, under normal circumstances, it won't work while pointed downward unless the chisel tip is actually against something. If it's doing that under load, though, have you checked the chisel you're using? If the shaft of the chisel is broken or marred, it may not be smoothly traveling the way it should. If it's okay, you likely have a broken piston inside.

Demolition tool or breaker

The shaft from the motor to the drive gear is likely not working the action of the hammer. There is a gear which spins the gears to achieve the hammer action, suspect the gear is either stripped, broken or both.
