Link to find parts list:

You can google the 23-66-1020 part number and find numerous suppliers.


Milwaukee is providing a no-charge warranty service to owners of 1610-1, 1630-1 1/2" Compact Hole-Shooter Drills and

1670-1, 1675-1 1/2" Hole-Hawg® Drills. We are taking this action because under certain circumstances the switch of the drill

may stick in the "on" position, which could lessen control of the product, posing a risk of injury to the operator.

1610-1, 1630-1 1/2" Compact Hole-Shooter Drills and 1670-1, 1675-1 1/2" Hole-Hawg® Drills within the serial number

ranges shown below and sold between May 30,2000 and February 27, 2001 are affected.

Nameplate Catalog Number Serial Number Range

1610-1 700B400200013 thru 700B400480097

1630-1 718B400230057 thru 718B400480118

1670-1 472B400200061 thru 472B400440188

1675-1 413B400190567 thru 413B400522000

Drills listed should be inspected for the presence of a 23-66-1020 Switch with a date code within 0 0 2 1 t h r o u g h 0044.

If the unit contains a subject dated coded 23-66-1020 switch, please return drill to the nearest Milwaukee factory Service Center

or Authorized Service station for no-charge warranty replacement of the switch.

Affected switches carry a manufacture's four [4] digit date code of 0 0 2 1 t h r u 0044 imprinted on its body.

If nameplate has an 'X' stamped into the tool's nameplate, next to the catalog number, the tool has been repaired and the

defective switch has already been replaced.

If you need assistance in locating the service facility nearest you or have questions please call 1.800.729.3878

Milwaukee Drill/Driver 1/2" has frozen. The batteries are fully charged and the light comes on but nothing else. What to do?

If you have a tool with carbon brushes open the back and look to the carbon brushes if they are worn replace both armature AND brushes together 3 benefits 1. It runs smooth again 2. more power happy batteries 3. more power longer lasting for the power assembly+switch
If you have a brushless tool there is 1 option open and clean the the switch inside is the only option to do or replace the switch stator unit depends on witch model.

My cordless drill is running at half RPM. Is it the brushes or the motor?

cordless drills have a switch that allows for more torque at lower rpms si in effect it is a 2 speed drill coupled with a variable speed switch that alters the rpms
If the drill is running I would be looking at a speed control problem at this point I would be looking at the torque control switch

Replacing brushes and are they part of the trigger

depending on the date code, the brushes might not be replaceable. I suggest going to and typing in your model number and under schematics find the one with the date code of your tool or get back to me with the code and I will research further, I looked at 3 breakdowns and one had replaceable brushes, and finally no they are not part of the trigger
