There's white smoke coming out of my de walt drill on load, goes after a while,but there's a smell of burning like you used to get with model train sets, could this be the brushes need replacing if so is this an expensive fix. many thanks
Hi,
This is pretty common. You can order new brushes from Dewalt or tool refurbish shops online for around $6 to $10 each

If you can solder wires you should be able to change them yourself.

This is a good place to order parts from.
If there's anything else I can help with please do let me know.
