Question about Drills
My charger will not reset and charge my battery. An Electronic man checked diodes, resistors, etc but can't check everything without a schematic. Can you help?
Check that the black microswitch is operating when a battery is placed in the charger. The microswitch button is pressed by a blue plastic piece. Over the years, the part of the blue plastic that the battery slides over wears down so that the switch does not operate. You can check it by slowly inserting a battery and listening for the switch to click.
I made a temporary fix by grinding down a stop on the blue plastic actuator so that it sticks more into the battery well, then wrapping tape around the portion that actually presses on the switch.
I doubt that you will be able to purchase that plastic actuator, but you might be able to find a used working charger on your favorite auction site.
