I have a 24v SDS drill, and have not abused it or over worked. But the batteries do not accept a full charge, this is very disappointing as the drill is great, do i have to take batteries appart to find the problem?

DO NOT Take the Batteries apart, you will see nothing more than a bunch of cells and if they are less than 1 year old than they may still be covered by Makita's warranty. Makita will Void that warranty if you open the batteries. Contact their service center they should be able to tell the age of your tool from the serial number or date code stamped in the tool. or 1-800-4-Makita
If they are older than a year old you are out of Luck. While you cared for your tools, Hammerdrilling in general is an abusive application for batteries and will discharge the batteries quickly and reduce the number of recharges you will get on the battery. I always recommend people always use their cordless Hammerdrills only when corded power is not available

My new Black Max 24v drill charger will not charge the battery

You indicate that the drill is new. I'd suggest you return it for a replacement. Seems to be a defective or wrong charger. If you have problems and If you paid by credit card call the card company and have them stop payment on that charge.

24v lights on charger but making humming sound.all 3 batteries not charging.any ideas?

If it is out of warranty open it up and check the fuse inside. This has happened to me several times with several brands, and it has always been the fuse. They are usually replaceable at Radio Shack or the Auto Parts Store.

Hope this helps!

Battery charger does not work for my bosch hammer drill sds plus .. my dad is an electronics engineer and he requires the circuit diagram to investigate the problem, where can i get one for this model .....

My charger (24 v) died also and repair shop wanted too many $ for repair. I happened on-to a charger for a printer (24v 1 amp) at the thrift store for $3.00 and fashioned a connector for connecting to the battery. It takes about 3 hrs to charge the battery but you must disconnect manually. It has been working for many months. It will do for me untill i find a bargan on ebay. The repair shop said that the part that failed was not a component that can be changed. (Multyfunction chip) Hope this helps for the short term. Enjoy
