I would try a new charger first, since it is both batteries doing it, I have had that happen with craftsman before. More than likely, tho, you need to get new batteries

Charger only has a red light when do I know battery is fully charged??


depending on the model of drill, the indicator (if not colour / state changing) only indicates that the drill is connected to power.

hence with no indicator of a full charge, if you refer to the user manual for this drill it should tell you how long the drill should be charged for.

My cordless craftsman 14.4 batteries read defective battery/ soft start.6 out of 7 of my batteries are doing this, can they be fixed?


I have never heard of them being repaired. The question I have is can you repair your car battery when it goes dead?

I bought a Ryobl Power Drill 14.4volt last week at a D.I.Y. store and have found when charging the batteries the light on the charger is Yellow. In the instruction manual they only mention Red when...


yellow usually indicates a HOT battery and is waiting for a cool down before recharging or it can mean a defective battery/charger. If you just bought this unit I would take it back for warranty replacement.

Green & Yellow light on 14.4V charger


It sounds like your battery is bad.

If both yellow and green LEDs come on, this indicates
a deeply discharged or defective battery pack.
Allow the battery pack to remain in the charger for 15
to 30 minutes. When the battery pack reaches normal
voltage range, the red LED should come on. If the
red LED does not come on after 30 minutes, this may
indicate a defective battery pack and should be
replaced.
n After normal usage, a minimum of 1 hour of charging time
is required to fully recharge battery pack.

When I charge a battery, the red light on the charger comes on but never switches to green and I dont know how long I need to charge each battery?


the green light or LED indicates or sign the the batery you are charging is already full,.so if it doesn't happen to switch ,it means that your baterry is weak and can not reach anymore the amount of current or amperes needed thats why it cant go to the highest peak of charging just like when it is new.Replace your batery and the green light will switch again if it is fully charge.
