Put the screw back in the chuck, tighten it up then back it out 1 turn. Take a punch, put it in the chuck and give it a quick hit with a hammer. That should do the trick.

It is possible that you overloaded it in high range and maybe stalled it out. Usually when the motor burns it is from overloading/overheating. If this is a newer tool I would try and take it back for warranty repair and not say anything about the smell. Its worth a try, some of the motors for the cordless tools are around 50-60 dollars

It sounds as if the brushes may be bad / burnt / chipped. If you fire up the drill in a dimly lit area you will likely see sparks inside the unit. The smell is the ozone that the sparking creates.
I have an 18 volt DeWalt that sparks and smells like something inside is cooking if I use it. I use that drill occasionally and every time I do I think that sooner or later it is going to give up the ghost permanently.
Now, if I had a 120 volt plug-in-the-wall outlet drill that was doing that I'd deep six the drill and get a new one. They are cheap enough and you really don't want to be dealing with sparking with an item that could short circuit and cause some real harm or damage..
You could get it repaired, but that wouldn't be cost effective. Take a wire cutters, cut off the plug from the wire and discard.
The one thing I would not do with the drill is sell it at a yard sale. It just wouldn't very honest to do that.

About the only indication if the charger is not working is when you put the batteries into the charger and no lights come on. This indicated that the charger is faulty. If the lights come on it is most likely the batteries. The best thing to do is take the batteries and charger to a Bosch service center and they will test them for you. Most will do this for free.
