  • drill not spinning

    Why is it that a DEWALT hammer drill ,DW 515, is not spinning , even though i have changed the switch ,checked the brushes for proper contact and checked the wiring and all seem well?

    could be a number of things, I was check the cord for continuity, the switch and so on or it may have a brunt out motor, but it will just have to hunted down and figured out,

    does it hum? I take it the motor does not turn is that correct, or just the spindle?

      I had already checked cord continuity and all wires continuity leading up to the brushes but still the armature does'nt hum nor turn.
      N.B someone was trying to fik it before me. Could it be that the wires are mixed up?
      Do you or anyone have a wiring diagram could uploaded?
      thanks in advance.

        basic manual but no diagrams or wiring schematic,

        hook up the cord on the switch and use the meter to see if it hooked up correctly.

        if it feeds power to the out put screws.

        or by pass the switch and see if it run that way.

        If not then my guess is there is some thing in the armature of the motor or in the field of the motor,some wire either disconnected or broke

          I have found out that the problem is an open Field coil.
