When pressed down the main switch is activated, so switch could be faulty or connections loose

I assume you have a R250AF18. The operator's manual for this nailer is here. There's an exploded diagram with a parts list here.

Could be a couple problems. A soft click sounds an awful lot like electric motor failure, but given that it's 6 moths old, this is a warranty issue. Rigid has a 3 year limited warranty on this tool. You can check here for a service center near you or give them a call at 866-539-1710 and they'll take care of you. Ridgid's customer support is generally very good.

Even though it is only 6 months old, the battery could be faulty here as it seems it is not holding any charge.

Coleman Junk!


Batteries are still evolving and have not been perfected yet. Some batteries still develop 'memory'. This can be 'cured' by discharging battery completely to dead. Then recharge fully. Do this at least two times.

Makita cordless driver drill model-6347d. ni-mh rechargeable nickel metal hydride battery 1834 18v 2.6ah will not stay charged. battery charter dc 1804- works great.


You say will not stay charged? Over what time period? Are you aware Nicad and NiMh rechargeables discharge naturally at 1% per day so where does that leave your power tool after 3 months? Furthermore they only have around 1000 charges in their useful life so you can immediately see how these tools are not for intermittent(ie handyman) use.

Problem charging makita batteries 18v li-ion


Unfortunately, Makita’s li-ion battery packs have a design flaw. After having the same problem with my two batteries, I took it apart and saw the problem immediately. You see each battery pack has ten li-ion battery cells and a circuit board with a memory chip witch holds the charging history of the battery pack. But that memory chip constantly draws power from 2 of the 10 batteries. The current it draws is very small but if you consider it over 8 month or more, the power drain becomes very significant. You end up with a battery pack with 8 still fully charged battery cells and 2 drained battery cells. When you put this battery pack in the charger, it detects weak battery cells, assumes they are defective and refuses to charge. To avoid this problem you should charge your battery pack often, even if you haven't used it, every two months should be ok.
I suspect that Makita doesn’t make these battery packs, they make power tools, good ones too. Buy Makita should definitely have a few words with their supplier before they become a liability!
