Question about Garden

2 Answers

Shortly after I left it out in the rain i was using it and it worked just fine - for about a half an hour. Then when I picked it up to use it there was nothing. Since then I recently tried to put a fully charged battery on it again and it turned the chuck very very slowly for about 7 - 10 seconds then smoke started coming out from where the battery pack seats on the drill. I pulled of the battery and noticed that the smoke was coming from the battery which was a little hot at the base of the male end. I also have a Dewalt radio/charger that was left out in the rain - now it still plays the radio however the charger does not work nor does the charger LED light. Can these items be fixed, and if so, how? Thanks, Clint

    I have no idea how I got sent to this chain saw page - my problem was with a Dewalt XRP 18 volt drill. I'm not retyping my question, someone at fixya needs to read my previous post and can respond to that. I really hope I don't have any more problems like this.

Sounds like a short in the wiring. Was the body damage in an area where the wiring could have been damaged also? You should take it back to the repair shop and tell them what is happening.

Water could have gotten inside the the box, condensation gets inside the wiring causing the short, when it gets humid, it bridges creating a short. It might not be the answer for you but thats what happened to me...
