Milwaukee 28v right angle drill - variable speed quit


Recommended Posts

Hi all


I have a Milwaukee 28v right angle drill that I use on a winch to trim sails and haul me up the mast on our sailboat. 

Lats week the ability for the drill to perform at a variable speed quit on me. Pulling the trigger, it was either full speed or non. It also got stuck at full speed a few times.


My question is has anyone familiar with this problem, and if so is it something I could fix or would I need to send it off to Milwaukee.


Any input much appreciated.

You could probably buy a new switch and swap it out if you wanted to do that. Being around a moist Environment does take its toll on power tools. I bet its some corrosion on some type of contact in the trigger. The warranty on the tool is 5 years so if your under that time frame you don't have to worry about costs on the repair.
