Question

I had this drill for 8 years and used all the time in my house repairs, in the last 5 months makes a sound when I start working like dragging sound, it quits after few seconds, I took apart thinking may need grease but does not the problem. May need new brushes?, Thank you

I read the advice to go to Wallmart and buy a new one. It struck me as a very funny, yet truthful reply. I am still chuckling.

Of course you could open the drill up and check for debris clogging the motor or perhaps the brushes need to be replaced. Don't be surprised if the brushes are not replaceable due to the motor design of the low cost drills. A visual inspection may be in order if you are determined to repair it.

On the other hand, Black and Decker brands are not long life, not heavy duty, not expensive drills such as Milwaulkee, DeWatt that are built to take a beating, and work in hostile environments.

For anyone that needs to use a drill more than he has time to fix a drill, I too, suggest the Walmart solution. I myself fit into this category, but then I own 6 drills.

If you are determined to fix the drill, but need more help than we can offer, I feel sure that a Black & Decker service center will charge more to fix it, than to replace it. Good luck and I hope your can see the other persons point of view respectfully.

Mark

As stupid as it may sound to you, it is sound advice from me. Mark Chapman probably nailed it when he said that the B&D service center would probably charge you more to repair it than a new one would cost you at Walmart.

I'm not knocking B&D tools, they are a solid brand and have their place. Unfortunately that place is not my professional toolbox

To give you a small idea of my recommended tools go to http://www.toolreview.cjb.net and read what I use. I'm not selling anything, just giving my "FREE" advice.
