    I forgot to mention that both batteries have a full charge, voltage wise as checked by meter. Any new suggestion? Thanks.

Hi mine show fully charged drilled 1 6mm hole and went flat yet sometimes is ok


Try fully discharging the battery first and let it sit for a few days. Then fully recharge before use. What happens with battery operated drills is the batteries develop what is called memory of the charge level when they are recharged and will not charge past that point but the charge light will show full charge. It happens when the drill is used for a period of time and then the battery is placed in the charger ready for next time instead of using the drill until it is flat or leaving a partially used drill on the bench and not recharging it until it is flat

Trigger Switch


I don't thinkk you got the motor aligned in the housing right. It sounds like it's in a bind causing the battery to over amp which shuts it down. The litium batteries have curcuits that detect overloads so you don't damage the battery. There are alignment guides in the housing and on the motor to help get it right.

C7 36 volt charger not working keeps blowing internal fuse


If the fuse is blowing before the battery is installed to charge, the problem lies on the circuit board. Since it is most likely a switch mode supply, you might try replacing the electrolytic capacitors first. Then check what should be a MOSFET, although some may have a regular bipolar transistor as well.

If the charger blows the fuse when the battery is installed for charging, the battery has some shorted cells that overloading the charger, or the contacts are distorted and being shorted by the battery

At first it does sound like the batteries.

How old is the drill? If it's old, then the batteries may either be dead, or need a careful, slow charge overnight to charge them properly. If new, then they may also need a really nice slow charge.

Sorry to ask, but have you fully charged all the batteries you have tried? !!! Many rechargeables lose a great portion of their charge if they sit for a long time.

Also, when using the drill, never use it until it runs the battery down so far stops, as this can damage batteries or discharge them to where again you need to very carefully charge them to get full charge back again.

Have you overloaded the drill:any plastic smells or have you drilled too hard and stalled it for a long time? That could cause motor damage. But look to the batteries first.

I HAVE A 36 VOLT DEWALT RECIP SAW, THE BATTERIES ARE NEW AND SO IS THE CHARGER. BUT THE CHARGER KEEPS BLINKING AS THOUGH THE BATTERIES ARE RUINED. CAN I RESET THE BATTERIES TO TEST


Charger blinks while charging, stops when batteries are fully charged.
New batteries may not be charged from factory. Let them charge overnite and see if it stops blinking.

did you check the battery under a load condition?as in check the voltage under drill operation,most batteries will check their normal top charge voltage when not being used,this is known as a surface charge,but under load the voltage may severly drop leading to burned or overheated armatures,have it load tested

Batteries seems they do not charge. They show yellow &geen always


you need to open up you battery and check each on for voltage. take out the ones that have no voltage and resolder it with the good battery from your other non working one. you need to ruff up the top and bottom of the battery to solder a wire to it. make sure you dont touch the battery to the wrong polarity or you will get a spark or fire.
