Suggestion if the wires (and their connectors) on the electric field and the powerswitch- and some electronic assembly can also have somewhere a faultering contact .

I would not advice to by pass the electronic control as this will result in shorting the life of the drill .it also could catch fire

Hilti Drills | Answered on Nov 08, 2019

Yes. New bits will fit old Hilti drills. Old Hilti bits do not fit the new (last 15 years) Hilti drills.

Hammer Set Of 6... | Answered on Nov 05, 2019

Disconnect the drill from Battery/Voltage supply. Spray little bit of WD-40 on the switch. Move the switch forward/backward few times to remove the dust/grime. Allow sufficient time to evaporate the WD-40, clean with a tissue paper area around the switch.
Now try with Battery or Power , the Forward/Reverse swithes.
Hope it works.

Battery is non functional. How many years the Battery is old? Try with a new battery.
Battery is not charging to full Capacity, if it old one.

You can try warranty services. However, if they are having an event in your area you might just try going down there. I have taken bad batteries to them in the past and they just GAVE me a new one.

Dewalt Drills | Answered on Oct 31, 2019

There are a great many similar items on the market these days at a variety of prices and in spite of the claims very few are truly heavy duty - most are copies of copies from a few manufacturers (usually China) and are label engineered and best suited to the home workshop and occasional user.

A true heavy duty version is very different - very much heavier and with a rack-and-pinion operated tiltable table, a more powerful continuous rated motor and many refinements that suits the machine to continuous workshop use. Such a machine as this would usually cost at least double and most commonly three, four or five times of the common imported type.

The first type has little value as a used machine other than what cash a purchaser can be persuaded to pay for it, in fact if it is bought with the usual accessories; a set of T bolts, a good machine vice and a collection of Morse taper drill bits, the price would more than double, the accessories being worth more than the pillar drill.

The industrial rated tool in good condition does retain a good used value but again it is worth only what the market will pay.

I suggest you peruse a variety of tool catalogues.

Usually drill motors have a reverse (left) thread retaining screw located in the center of the chuck. The chuck however is typically threaded in the normal right hand configuration. Once the retaining screw is removed place a 1/4" allen wrench short end into the chuck and tighten, next strike the allen wrench with a soft tip mallot (counter clockwise while holding on to the drill motor firmly. This should loosen the chuck, then simply unscrew the chuck by hand. Good Luck!

If the circuit board is damaged, you can contact the manufacturer and possibly get a new circuit board. It would be good news if it were under warranty --maybe.

Immediately after immersion and retrieving it, one might try blow drying it (or drying it with a heater). But you can't let it sit around and dry on its own. Chances are, you are fated to get another drill.
