Drill Problems

A drill is basically a machine which is fitted with a cutting tool attachment which could be a drill bit or driver bit. It is generally used for drilling holes into a variety of materials or fastening different materials with the help of fasteners. The drill works by gripping one end of if referred to as the “chuck” (part which holds the attachment) and the other end rotating into the target material it has being pressed against. There are different types of drills such as cordless drills, hammer drills, and power drills. Read below where Experts have answered commonly asked questions regarding drill problems.

How can an individual unlock a drill bit that has been jammed open?

You could try using or spraying penetrating oil where the drill bit is attached. Let it remain on it for some time. This should help unlock the grid.

Why is a Black & Decker cordless drill not recharging? What could be some options to recharge this drill?

First check the individual will to see if the drill is still covered under warranty. The individual could then contact the company to check if you can send it to be repaired or replaced. If the warranty has expired, most likely the batteries have become defective or the charger could be faulty. The individual may need to check the output voltage of the charger to confirm if it is working. The individual should also check the existing voltage capacity on your battery.

What could be the problem with a Black & Decker rechargeable battery that will not recharge and has been replaced and still would not recharge?

The individual could be facing either one of the following issues:
1. The battery charger is not charging the battery properly. The few turns you experienced was probably from residual voltage in the battery.
2. The drill’s motor brushes are worn out and need to be replaced.

Try testing the charger using a volt meter for a minimum of 10 VDC. If you do not get a 10 VDC reading, the charger is defective.

A Black & Decker 7252 VA drill is rated at 1200 revolutions per minute (RPM), what is the chuck RPM?

When the motor speed of a drill is at 1200 RPM, most likely the chuck speed is approximately 400 RPM. This is due to the presence of gear train reduction.

Where can an individual find a replacement 120V adapter for an 18V cordless drill?

A point to be noted here is tool companies generally ensure that most battery chargers are different from the others. They go to great length to do so intentionally. Sometimes they do not have the same lines or chargers within their own factory lines. This ensures you obtain the necessary parts from them if you need it in the future. Hence the replacement would most likely be available either at a factory authorized service company or dealer or from the company website.

Drills are a convenient tool especially if you are a handy individual looking to get things done around your home. They come with different attachments which help you achieve various results of drilling on different materials and textures. Sometimes your drill may not get properly charged or the charger may have problems. To know more about the drill problems faced by you and to get your questions answered, consulting Experts could prove quite useful.

    LG gas dryer model DLG9588SM dryer will not get hot... I had a tech out here and he said the vent was clogged...reset a switch(?) and then things worked. I have since cleared the vent with a 15 foot drill mounted cleaner and now it is not heating again. Do you know where this "reset" button may be?

    I have had a Jenn-Air stainless steel three burner grill, model(NNN) NNN-NNNNP for approx. 8 years. It still looks good but only one of the burners light and but not that well. The other two burners won't light. Is it worth it to get it fixed/parts replaced or to get a new grill?
  • Just completed an lp conversion and range installation for

    Just completed an lp conversion and range installation for a new Kenmore Range we purchased. Everything is working fine with the exception of the lowest btu burner. The igniter seems to be working but burner won't light. When completing the conversion the instructions did not specifically state which orfice goes to which burner so my husband matched them up and installed them smallest where the smallest came off, largest where the largest came off, etc. Any suggestions? Our nearest Sears is over an hour away and the nearest appliance store/repairman in nearly the same distance.
