    they updated the brushes in some of the older 18v drills yours might be one of those. also the problem might be in the variable speed controller.

You have burned out the drill motor, it is shorted, the battery smoked due to a direct short, one thing I don't understand why the thermal limiter didn't trip in battery pack, I would contact manufacturer and try to get hem to buy you a new drill.

I have 3 drills, (2)14.4 and (1)18 volt Dewalt. the 14.4 drills starT to smell of burning and then smoke. One of the 14.4 drills seems to be less powerful. The 18 volt hammer drill is stuck in forward...


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..

I have a dewalt 18v cordless hammer drill but for some reason while drilling the drill does not spin as fast as it used to batteries are fine just the drill any ideas


depends on where you drilling- wood - no hammer option needed- fast, metal- no hammer option needed- also fast, but it is concrete- sorry- hammer option needed so it will always drill slower, and drain your batteries way faster (have a spare one ready).Speaking about drilling - don't drill for too long with no breaks to cool them down, always keep an eye on gun's and battery's temperature- even if it is new Lithium NANO, do not let them overheat.
BTW- what model is yours? Is It SDS hammer drill sort of DC212KL?
