18 V Ni-Cad charger repair

From what I've seen.....usually when Lithium batteries won't charge it's because they lost too much of there charge. As soon as a Lithium battery shows signs of weakness they should be charged. But to answer your question most chargers do have a fuse soldered to a circuit board so yes it's possible to be a fuse but not usually "simple".

Just bought a new drill and battery not holding a charge

Batteries sometimes get like yours, after a full charge they last only a couple minutes on the tool. It's usually because of a bad cell in the battery. The only fix is to replace the battery. If you just bought it, take it back for an exchange of the battery or whole tool kit. If the retailer you bought it from won't exchange it contact the company it came from to find out how to get the battery replaced under their warranty.

My 3 year old battery P104 will run my drill about 10 secs and then quit. I restart the drill and the same thing, another 10 secs and stop. I checked the voltage on the battery and it is fully charged. ...

Your batteries are tired and don't put out enough amps to power your drill. They may show 18V in them on a tester and show fully charged on the charger but one or more of the cells inside are just worn out. If you got three years out of them you did extremely well. The only fix is to replace the batteries.

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.

Bought 2 no BTD142 impact drivers from Makita USA got drop down transformer they just start to charge then tones for broken battery are heard and stop charging, transformer new, batteries new have i done...

these newer chargers do make a tone that can be changed. when the batterys are initially inserted they will make a sound and then when they are fully charged they will make another usually longer sound. you can change it by removing the battery with 5 seconds and reinserting until you find the sound that you like.. I would look at the charging lights before deciding the charger or battery are bad.

Drill causes my Battary to smoke & Burn out

Do you have more than one battery and if so do they both do this? It sounds like the batery has shorted out or possibly the switch is malfunctioning and creating the short either way I would not try and recharge a battery that has these symptoms. I actually had a NiCad battery catch on fire when I charged it not knowing the history of battery. There are repair centers that usually won't charge you to check batterys/drill or maybe a minimal fee but it is cheaper than replacing batterys constantly. Good luck. Dave
