It is very likely the carbon brushes that contact the motor to transfer electricity to the windings. those tend to crack and get stuck or wear out. They need to be moving in and out freely and have spring pressure pushing them in towards the motor. you can get new ones cheap at ereplacementparts.com if they sell them.

If they are replaceable, you will be opening up the drill by removing the screws holding it together, and then you might see the brushes that need replacement.

I fix these myself, and my success rate is about 50 %.
God bless your efforts.
