Can Dewalt Drills Be Repaired?

Yes they can! That is the quick and simple answer I have to offer today, and the best part about it all is this —- if the defect is due to faulty workmanship or materials, the company will cover the entire cost of the repair. All you have to do is to call this number : 1-800-433-9258, and they will take care of the rest ( yes, even including your shipping and return shipping costs, he he he he heh ) . Is that great news or what? You can also fill out this form on the web to get the process started : https://support.dewalt.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

Now, then, unless you have some hands – on practice with drills, or you really know what you are doing ( not to mention details on the intrinsics of the product itself and how to repair or replace a certain part ) , then it is usually not recommended that you do the repair on your own … at least, well, not without spending a few hours of research watching all the right YouTube videos on the topic and seeing how others have done it. Ultimate Handyman, for one, is one channel I am constantly checking for new videos on every single week ; I am subscribed to them and find them to be one of the best, most informative channels around on this subject. I really liked their recent video on step – by – step clutch replacements, which literally showed me, from start to finish, how to swap – out the clutch on my electric DeWalt XRP. It was some of the most fun I had ever had, and I paused the video often to follow the steps on my own and take some notes …. and when all was said and done, it worked like a charm. I had that new clutch in there, and it worked beautifully …. so thank you, Ultimate Handyman!

You will also want to look at your warranty ( some DeWalt tools start at 3 – year warranty and go longer from there, depending on the product / service you get ) . If you are still within the warranty, and you can show that the faulty drill or part is no fault of your own, then consider, like I said, calling that number or filling out that form and getting your free repair. But you HAVE TO BE still within the warranty coverage time – frame.

If you need to do other repairs, like unstick or re – adjust a drill chuck, then know that it can be done, too. Yup … DeWalt products, for the most part, are some of the easiest to do these repairs on. I kid you not.

So I hope this has helped you, at the end of the day. And yes … DeWalt drills CAN usually be repaired. Good to know, right? Thank you, once again, for reading and checking this out.
