1 Answer

Shorted out and melted

Went to use it and was completely dead, put in the other fully charged battery and within ten minutes was so hot I could hardly touch it, triger froze and battery melted to drill. I bought it in June and lost the paper work. What can I do now?

    I had the same problem. As luck would have it I had another drill that the chuck went bad on so I had the parts to fix the origional drill. The drill got put down and unknowingly had some pressure on the trigger causing some current to be transfering to the motor eventually overheating the trigger assembly and melting the trigger. I had a very bad experience with the low life repair personall who answer the phone at their alltrade facility however when I got a supervisor they were as you would expect and they sent me a whole new drill, that was the one that had the chuck problem. I would agree that you should call the repair facily because they also have rebuilt drills for very little money

You might try and take it back anyway. There is a date code on the batterys and usually the serial number will tell them when it was manufactured. Short of rebuilding it yourself I would try this. Also take back to where you bought it and sometimes they keep records of the sale. If no get me the model number and brand and I will come up with a list of parts.

Try the reset for the key switch , hook up battery charger or maintainer to battery then turn key on do not crank engine leave key in on position for ten minutes , repeat a total of three times then turn key switch to off position after third cycle then remove key . Then reinstall key to ignition switch then crank the engine over and see if that fixes your issue .

Cordless drill - model KC9682C - probably 8 years old. Stopped working shortly after a battery re-charge. I'm guessing it's the battery. It charges for a few minutes then the red light goes off. Could it...

If light is on charger the charge is fine. You could verify using voltmeter it should put out = to what it says on the back of charger 12-18 volts or so.
Most likely battery is shot after 8 years they just dont' hold a charge anymore and they often will only charge for a few minutes when the chip in the computer tells the charger to shut off due to defective battery.
compare prices of new drills and new batterys sometimes new drill is not much more. Try ebay and harbor freight for ultra low priced batteries.

The battery went dead when I tryed to start in cold weather,I removed the battery and charged it back up, However when I put the battery back in the car started and ran for about five minutes when it shut...

You have a dead short across that fuse, The end opposite the battery will probably show a ground rather than a resistive load. You are going to have to find that short and fix it. A dead short on a 60 Amp fuse is a heavy load. That fuse is probably preventing a fire or melted harness wires.

I have a 99 VW Golf and the battery went totally dead. When I tried to jump it the cables started smoking and the wires melted. A volatage meter registers zero when the battery is connected to the car...

At 5 Volts the battery is totally cactus (a fully charged battery should read above 12.6 V) and from the description of hot melting wires appears the battery has a dead short between cells. Try a new battery and check battery terminal voltage before and after connection, with every thing turned off. If terminal voltage drops more than 0.2 V it would indicate excessive current draw by a faulty component. You may have to have the electrical system checked by an auto electrician to determine if there is any other faukts in the system.

I'm not certain what your question is you made a statement more or less.

I do know that alot of cell phones will show that they are fully charged after minutes of charging, but then very quickly go back down to almost dead within an hour. This is because the phone is not actually fully charged. Most batterys need at least an hour minimum to be fully charged after its drained completely.

Post back if you need any further assistance. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

My battery went dead this morning i charged it this evening and it is just showing a battery and timer wont switch on or charge??

from what I hear, you have either fully charged your battery or your battery is pretty much completely dead.

your options:

1. If it's completely dead and won't hold a charge it's time to purchase another battery, this happens from time to time so don't freak out about it.
2. If it's fully charged, try taking the battery completely out of the phone, and re-inserting it after a few minutes, sometimes cell phones need to be reset.
3. ensure that your charger is working properly, if its not getting juice to it neither is your phone.
4. try to dial your number just to see what happens to the phone.
5. if someone else u know has a charger like yours try to borrow theirs to charge your phone possibly ruling out a bad charger

Camera gets hot

It sounds like your camera has a dead short in it. Either that or a defective battery. Do not leave the batery in teh camera it could melt things. Seriously! Did the camera get wet? If not and the camera is undera year old then Olympus will repair it under warranty.
