I had the same problem with mine. I used a voltmeter to check the output of the charger and found that there was none. I then used a Dremel tool and cut open the power cube. I found that the transformer had burnt up. My battery in the wrench had shorted and caused the charger to burn up. I couldn't find a new charger but I was able to find a power cube with the right voltage output. The original output was 5VAC at 300 ma. I found a 5VAC at 400 ma. It was an Atlink branded power cube. I found a battery at Interstate Batteries that is listed as a replacement. It will have to be soldered in. I now have a working wrench again.

The charger that comes with Homelite 24v mower is crappy. I've gone thru 3 of them. What's a better alternative?


I have used a DieHard portable battery charger (model 200.71222) for several years to recharge my 24-volt, 18-year old Craftsman mulcher, model 315.370270. This is after the on-board charger died. I just disconnect the link between the two 12-volt batteries and remove all other battery connections. Then connect the charger leads to the positive and negative terminals on one of the batteries before plugging in the charger. I put the settings on the charger at conventional low maintenance and 2 amps. Charge one battery and then the other (assuming you have two 12-volt sealed lead acid batteries like my mower). I use binder clips 530-t.jpgfrom an office supply store to hold the battery wires on the terminals when I'm mowing...makes it simpler to remove and reattach for charging instead of the nut-and-bolt connectors that came with the mower.

I have a Skil Model 2363 drill. Used it about 3 times. Put it in the charger and it won't charge. I have it for about 1-1/2 years. Skil says I have to buy a new one. That the battery is no longer made....


Sometimes places like Batteries + and the Battery Barn (on line web sites) will have replacement batteries for popular models even after the manufactures quit producing them. That is where I found batteries for my Bosch drill.

Where is the blade lock button on a skilsaw 5150 2 1/8hp ???? i can't get the blade off and turning the saw bolt the same direction as it spins isn't working.


First, there is no blade lock button on the Skil model 5150. I called the Skil customer service and they emailed me the exact manual for this circular saw. The method I used to loosen a VERY TIGHT blade stud was: spray with WD-40, imbed the blade in scrap wood, set Skil wrench (usually found in back of foot under handle) on so it could be struck going in counter-clockwise direction. Use hammer to strike handle of wrench a couple of times. To replace blade, finger-tighten blade stud, then use wrench to tighten 1/8 turn or (45°).

Skil charger & batteries won't charge


The only thing I suggest is taking your Skil driver to a Bosch service center (Skil is now owned by Bosch) and they will replace the charger under warranty if the driver is less than a yr old. If not those chargers are not that expensive. Either way you need a new charger because they are not repairable.

Skil cordless drill model 2362 - won't charge


I have the same problem. The guys at Batterries Plus told me that 7.2 volt battereis are not easily replaced and definately not through them. If you left it charging for to long (ie over a week when you were gone like me) then the battery is never gonna charge again. You might as well find the same model of dril at skil's reconditioned site for around $40 or buy a brand new one for $60 or $70

SKIL 18V BATTERY PACK


There are three visble screws and one hidden. Use the right size torx driver if you have it, or a small allen wrench works too and undo the screw that is visble on one side of the pack. Snap the false bottom off of the pack and reveal two more screws to remove. One screw is behid a plastic cap over a fourth obvious screw location. Drill the cap and unscre this screw also. Be sure there are no lables holding the two side together. Pressing down on the battery holdin clasp makes the sides easier to separate. Watch for falling parts. That's it!
