Try working the switches Low/High, Forward/Reverse. Sometimes, the battrey can hang up a bit in the charger, resulting in a low, or no charge. Try a different battery, or recharge your existing battery, making sure that it is firmly seated in the charger.

No power on a fully charged batery why?


Users have reported problems with the charger and battery life on this drill. If possible verify the charger is working by swapping it with another or using a voltmeter on the plug.

If it is, the battery has failed and will not hold a charge. It is uneconomical to replace it.

The cordless drills I have purchased even good ones like Ryobi lasted about three years The drills will work good but the batteries go dead after a while. My Ryobi I keep one battery charging in my charger all the time but before you do this check your manual to make sure its ok. I change batteries every two weeks when not in use all the time. I never have a run down battery that way.

See if you can put a volt meter on the metal contacks of the charger to see what voltage it is producing. If you have a friend who has the same drill have him try to charge your batteries and then measure the battery voltage.

Craftsman 14.4 volt battery won't charge at all.


you have a bad plug, switch it out with a similar plug (output v). Usually an old hand vac or appliance will work just fine.

Batteries not charging


sounds like my charger, not making good contact

wiggle the battery around while pushing down and you can probably get it to make contact

sounds like you just need a new charger

Not charging


try wiggling the battery around and see if a light flashes

also look and see if a light flashes when you plug it in

i'm about 98% sure it's the charger

Both cordless drill batteries dead.


Your battery could say its good by just testing voltage,but when a load is put on it , its a different story. My dewalt batt. did the same thing I opened up the batt. case and there was 12 "C" sized batteries inside linked together with little metal strips. I bought 12 rechargeable "C" batts. and carefully drilled where the metal strips are soldered, changed out batt. and re solder. It's been over a year now and still drilling . Also you should do this one batt. at a time so you don't put one in the wrong order .
