Help with Panasonic 28.8v rotary hammer drill? Answered

One day i was working on a house where i was fixing wood fibre board to the exterior of the house. i was drilling quit alot , 20-30 minutes periods over a 8 hour day. well after a few days, my Panasonic hammer drill started smelling quite unusual. like electrical burning smell. the hammer drill lost power and altough it still worked and the end was still spinning, it was pritty much unusable. i was seeing if anyone could give me any help as to what is wrong with it as im in dire need of it at the moment and i paid too much money for it just to throw it away. any help would be great. thanks

You've been using it way too hard, You killed the motors' brushes.

I hope you have a warranty on it :)

You need to buy a stronger one next time...

Take it apart and find what is burnt.

Almost all of those battery powered drills have the same motor, so if it is the motor look for a drill in the waist bin for a replacement motor.

Without looking inside it is a guess but it sounds like the motor.

Bin it, you got a tool for casual home use and misused it as a tradies tool.
The usually state in the manual that the device is not meant for commercial use.

hi, thanks for the comment but it wasnt really what i was looking for. Just seeing if anyone could advise me what is wrong with it so i can replace the part. I paid little over 400 for ot last year and the last thing i want to do is throw it in the bin. I dont use it as hard core as i was usually nmjust to drill holes for hanging ceilings which it was ideal for.
