Question: Repair Jobsight Radio DC011
I am replacing the tuning PWB assy. I can see the part but its screwed to the chassis which is behind part of the PCB assy. It looks to me like both the chassis and the PCB must be removed together. I have removed five screws from the chassis, one on the left side, two on the top, and two on right side which also goes through the PCB. I have removed four screws from the PCB, one top screw which is between the two screws on the right side of the chassis, one in the center of the PCB and two towards the bottom. I think I have removed all screws, but the PCB will not release from the back of the radio body. Am I going about this the right way. Could you please assist me on where I go from here.
Question: Dewalt Radio Model Dc011
The radio got plugged into 220 system. Charger still works fine, radio does not.
Is there a probable failure point in the radio section that can be repaired or replaced?
Reply: Dewalt Radio Model Dc011
There are quite a few PCB assemblies in this Radio/Charger it would be difficult to know which one it could be. You may just need to inspect each one visibly for any burnt circuits. One item you may want to check also is item number 9, part number 5140019-09 Fuse. It would be nice if it was this easy.
Question: Dco11 Jobsite Radio
what is the difference between a type 1 and type 2 radio
Reply: Dco11 Jobsite Radio
About the only difference I can see between the Type 1 and Type 2 DC011 Radio. Is that the Type 1 has a PCB Assembly not used in the Type 2. It is item number 16 on the parts diagram, part number 5140019-16.
Hope this helps,
Question: Antenna For DW11 Jobsite Radio
Is part # 429790-57 what I need to replace my antenna or do I need something else to adapt it to my radio Thanx Ron link removed
Reply: Antenna For DW11 Jobsite Radio
I don't see a parts diagram for a Dewalt DW11. So I will give you two choices of antennas for two different Dewalt radio model numbers. If it is a DW911 the part for the antenna is 429790-57. If your Dewalt radio is a model number DC011, the part number for the antenna is 5140019-28.
Hope this helps,
My worked fine up untill i plugged into power inverter then radio stopped working will not turn on or charge battery any idea what might be wrong
With all the electronics with in the internal parts of the the radio, It might be a good idea to get a multimeter to check out all the components, Remember to unplug the radio be for you start you work on it.
Question: Sound Just Shuts Off When Using ...
sometimes the sound will come back on all by its self.sometimes you can tap the radio and it will come back on. sometimes you just have to shut the radio off and it will work later.
Reply: Sound Just Shuts Off When Using ...
Obviously it sounds like there is a short in the radio some where. The problem is where is it. With out testing the electronic components it will be difficult to guess. You may want to take it to a Dewalt service center and have them take a look at it.
Question: DC011 Radio
I have the Dewalt radio that works fine when pluged in and charges battery fine, but when i try to run the radio off battery. I turn it on the display lights up with the radio station for a second then fades back to the time, there is no sound nothing...I did replace the pcb assembly #39. and the radio would run off battery before i replaced #39. I replaced the part # 41 thinking that me be the problem, no luck same thing. and ideals or thoughts would be great!!

Question: Taking Apart A Dewalt DC011
Hi there have just bought a DC011 Dewalt radio 4 months ago and have only now just tried it out at work and guess what, it don't work on 110v mains power or charge batteries.
It will only work via using a charged battery.
I wouldn't mind but it has been sitting in a sealed box never been used before.
I see this is a common question/fault with this particular item and was gonna try and take casing apart to check fuses etc.
How many screws are there to remove casing so that I can get to the fuses and in what order to take out?
Many thanks for all help and advice given in advance.
Reply: Taking Apart A Dewalt DC011
If your radio is only 4 months old and not working I would suggest taking it to a Dewalt service center to see if it is possibly a warranty issue. It should have a one year warranty. If you have never used it and it will not work on AC there is definitely a problem in the unit from the manufacture.
Question: Radio No Sound When Jarred
I have a dewalt radio; in the morning it will work fine, but later in the day, the FM stations will start cutting out and if the radio is jarred in any way, it will stop playing. I can press the station buttons and sometimes it will start playing again. But most of the time it will not. Please help
Ever since I bought the radio, when you turn the tuner knob at the top of the radio, the numbers don't just go down or up--they jump down and up when turning it the same way. What's wrong?
I have the same problem; I would like an answer also.
Mine had this problem and it was the radio battery
I have the dc011 and the volume on it is not as loud as it used to be. I work with metal studs, do you think when they are cut with a saw the metal chips built up enough on the magnets of the speakers to affect the performance of them?
If you read my question further down, I had intermittent sound on different bands; the fix I did was to use a can of degreaser on the internal boards, especially near the tuner, then allow it to dry before plugging into the mains. It brought it back to life.
There was plenty of dirt that came out. I would suggest spraying near volume control knob.
I had mine running on just the battery whilst spraying to check for improvement, but allowed it to dry overnight before using the mains supply. I hope this helps; any feed back would be great.
Question: DC011 Only Plays Via The Battery...
I've been reading the questions and posts but still haven't decided what my problem is. The radio works with the battery but, doesn't work when plugged in and also doesn't charge the battery. I checked both fuses and they seem to be OK. Does anyone know what it could be? Maybe the PCB Assy.? I also did solder the cord because it began to come apart recently if that matters.
Any suggestions will help... Thanks Matt

Check your Transformer primary and secondary
Coil ohms and also voltage output
Pull the white plug out and plug the electrical cord in outlet and measure voltage on the small white plug for voltage out of the transformer secondary
Reply: DC011 Only Plays Via The Battery...
I have had the thermal fuse inside of the transformer open. Check the primary of the transformer for continuity. If it is open you can either buy a new transformer or use an exacto knife to cut away some of the cover to expose the fuse and then solder a new one in its place. They are cheap fuses and can be found on eBay.
Question: No Power
Our radio will not work at all - whether the battery is charged or it's plugged in to the wall. We took it to the beach and only used it at the pool. It played for a couple of days on battery and we thought the battery was dead so we plugged it in the outlet by the pool - now it just wouldn't come on at all. HELP!
I have a DC011 Type 2. I bought it used and the power cord was cut. I replaced the plug and plugged it in. Nothing. It does not have a battery. Does it need one to just function as a radio for the garage? I don't want to invest in a battery if I don't need one. Thanks Steve
No battery required. You may have an opened fuse on the inside.
Question: Type 1 Or Type 2?
How do I know if I have Type 1 or Type 2 of the DC011?
Reply: Type 1 Or Type 2?
It's on the label with the Model number, usually it's under the model number.
Question: Volume Problem
When I turn on the radio the volume goes to high right away. Sometimes it works properly.
Reply: Volume Problem
Troubleshooting a jobsite radio can be very difficult. You would need to know the logic of each of the circuit boards to be able to diagnose which one is causing the problem. Common sense would say if there is a problem with the volume you need to replace the volume control board but the problem could just as well be with the main circuit board. Your best bet with a radio is to take it to your local service center. The way that most shops will fix the problem is to replace the board that is most likely to be the problem and hope it works. If not, it is on to the next board until it is fixed. You could do the same but you would need to buy each board to try it. If you don't guess right it can quickly become very costly.
Good luck with your repair!

I have a DC011 i believe was plugged into 220. Which part would I need to replace to get it working again?
I have the same question as Matt Mahoney. My radio works with the battery in, but will not charge or work when plugged in
You probably blew the fuse inside on the power supply board. Check that first and replace it if it is blown. If the fuse blows again then you have a bad power supply. Hopefully the fuse blew fast enough and replacing it will solve your problem. Good Luck!
Question: Battery Issues
The radio will not charge the battery and it also will not run off the battery. I checked the output voltage from the radio to the battery and its only 5 vdc.
Grateful for any help.
Reply: Battery Issues
battery not charging
Question: Memory Loss
When I turn the radio off, I loose all the radio pre-sets and the time. Otherwise the radio and clock work fine once they are reset and the radio remains on. Any Ideas?
Reply: Memory Loss
There is a spot on the radio where the DeWalt battery goes for a AA battery that will keep the time and presets the same.
Question: Dco11 Radio
Hi there. I have a dc011 radio that has packed up on me. I have told that it is a board in the radio the switch board. Can you help me to fix it? I have the board out it has a cervied edge and a fuse in it and two black relays I think. Hope to here from you soon. I am losed with out it! Cheers Chris
Reply: Dco11 Radio
I believe the part you are looking for is the Power PCB Assembly. It is item #18 on the parts diagram. It looks like item #17 is the fuse that you mentioned attached to the circuit board. The Power PCB Assembly is part #5140048-50 and is available from http://ereplacementparts.com.
I hope this helps with your repair!
Question: WHATS WRONG
My radio, when it's fully charged and plugged in, only picks up 1 or 2 stations and makes a noise like the battery is dying. What's wrong?
Reply: WHATS WRONG
I am really not sure what would cause the problem. My first thought would be the tuner. It is item #42 on the parts breakdown. The tuner is part #5140019-42 and is available from http://ereplacementparts.com.
Good luck with your repair!
Question: Dewalt Radio Works Then Doesn't ...
Hi, my radio a Dewalt DC011 doesn't work all the time. It works when it's dry out or put into the house, then when it rains or is left out side it quits working. Dry it out for a couple of days and its fine. Everything else works except for the sound. Can you tell me what the problem might be please???? Thanks!!!!
Reply: Dewalt Radio Works Then Doesn't ...
It sounds to me like the radio is getting some water inside. The water is probably shorting out the circuits. It doesn't take much water inside to cause headaches. The water will evaporate inside and then condense on the circuit boards.
You need to keep the radio dry. If the water keeps getting inside it will eventually cause a bad short that will ruin one or all of the circuit boards resulting in a costly repair.
I hope this helps!

Question: Dewalt DC011 Work Site Radio...
Anyone have an idea what might make the radio portion not work? The charging system works fine. Looked on the parts list but can't determine what would be the "guts" for the radio.... any help?
Reply: Dewalt DC011 Work Site Radio...
There is a circuit board assembly for the radio available for about $70 but it's not a repair I've ever performed. With entire radios selling in the $130 range, the circuit board is over half the price of a new unit though.
Does the radio portion of the charger appear to turn on at all or is it just dead?

my dewalt dc011 radio got wet and now it turns on but not sound does this mean that the speakers are blown
