Jimmie Neutron Posted June 1, 2011 Report Share Posted June 1, 2011 This is my first post... please take it easy on the noob! lol I purchased a DC827 as a bare tool in either February or March... I have only put two full DC9180 batteries through her and she stopped working about 1/4 way through the third. I realize that what I am using it for may not be the intended application; which is automotive work. But let me clarify that statement: I break everything loose and torque fasteners down by hand; the tedious running them in and out I used this wonderful "impact". The issue is that the motor still spins, but the bits no longer move with any power; I can stop them with two fingers. I tore it down, hoping I could find an obvious broken part... no such luck. So I started searching the net and found this forum and this thread. From what I see on the pictures, the pinion is no longer attached to the motor. I can shake it out of the mechanism, but it is not attached to anything. I imagine that this is the issue, but am curious as to how it attaches! Hope to hear from you soon! ~J Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
