dewalt drill problem


iv had a dewalt 230v corded drill for many years now and recently it made a bit of a funny noise and got quite warm so i left it, came back the next day and it would only operate at its highest speed and when i press the trigger just a bit for a little power theres nothing. iv had the drill apart today and the grease seal is quite worn so i shall be replacing that and the brushes are worn aswell.

has anyone had this problem and know a solution, i paid quite a lot for the drill so i dont fancy throwing it out and spending more money if its an easy fix
any help is appriciated.

I've never had any luck with any Dewalt tools.
Brushes wear out and can stick in the holders in any drill.
If the commintator is dirty or shorted it can cause over heating and dead spots where the drill will not turn unless you hand turn the chuck.
No mention of model # so we can see what your talking about.

Also would be great if you went back and added your location to your profile.
May explain why it's 220 v and not 110 V.

Sounds like a switch problem since the drill runs OK at high speed.
