Hi,
To start, I assume you took the "good" battery from the working drill and tested the inoperative drill.
Good for doing that.
The other causes I know of in Drills that turn them into paper weights are as follows:
1 Worn Brushed: You can attempt to test this by squeezing the assumed good trigger button and
Taping the drill or lightly banging it on a bench top or something else. If it is brushes, it will often but no necessarily all the time, start to run for a moment, or just running. Since you use the drill and "use it a lot" That will be the first thing I would look for.


2 Trigger Button.

I would bring it to a tool service place or send it back to Ridgid. Try this link

Hope this helps, Happy New Year

My ridgid 24 volt battery wont charge or the battery charger doesn't work how do i test it


there are points where the battery connects to the charger. these points can be tested with a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter- and it can just be a volt ohm meter, it doesn't have to be digital ) - your meter should read voltage when checking across the points. Now if it has a button to turn it on and you turn it on and measure nothing, you're going to have to open the charger up... there is a lot more to this testing... next time, include model number for the charger please

Drill shuts off


Yes, it's tripping on over temp. There is a thermal protection inside the motor. Try to not press so hard so the motor doesn't pull so hard. Let the drill do the work, and let it run at the set RPM. You will get more life from the battery and the drill motor.

I have a mikita 12 volt and when I charge it it wont hold charge.


do you have a volt meter toi check the charger voltage? if so then read the voltage out of the charger, it should be 1 or 2 volts higher than the listing 12v would be 13 or 14 volts. if it's working you probally do have a bad battery. if the charger is out then you have a bad charger.

MAKITA DC1290A CHARGER PROBLEM


Makita generally does not provide a schematic for the charger wiring. The only parts that are usually replaceable are the cord and housings and possibly a fuse. If this is an older charger I would look for a "cold solder joint" I fixed quite a few for this and one component breaking loose. I dont know if Makitausa website can help or not. What volt is this charger, I have a couple in my garage that I can look at also
