Sounds like the battery has been left on charge too long not holding a charge causing the battery to go bad. also try cleaning the contacts on the batter and on the unit itself see if there is any rust or anything not of the norm to be wiped off.

also if you have a model number further troubleshooting would be easyer.

just fishing out of the air for you at the moment.

thanks hope we can help out here.

Ryobi 40v trimmer stops working with 1/2 charge left on battery


Battery is weak. Those lights are really useless...more a marketing gimmick. It almost sounds like it developed a memory...this happens when certain types of batteries are not fully discharged before being placed on the charger. Replace the battery and make sure to follow charging directions for that particular type of battery

18v 12 cordless trimmer/edger. Why won't it start?


the trimmers switch may be faulty.

CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK
Battery packs for this tool are shipped in a low charge condition
to prevent possible problems. Therefore, you should
charge them until the green LED on the front of the charger
comes on.
NOTE: Batteries will not reach full charge the first time they
are charged. Allow several cycles (operation followed by
recharging) for them to become fully charged.
CHARGING A COOL BATTERY PACK
See Figure 3.
If battery pack is within normal temperature range, the red
LED on charger will come on.
NOTE: If the charger does not charge the battery pack
under normal circumstances, return both the battery pack and
charger to your nearest Ryobi Authorized Service Center for
electrical check.
n Charge the battery pack only with the charger provided.
n Make sure the power supply is normal household
voltage, 120 volts, 60 Hz, AC only.
n Connect the charger to the power supply.
n Place the battery pack in the charger aligning raised rib
on the battery pack with the groove in the charger.
n Press down on the battery pack to be sure contacts on
the battery pack engage properly with contacts in the
charger.
n Normally the red LED on charger will come on. This
indicates the charger is in fast charging mode.
n Red LED should remain on for approximately 1 hour
then the green LED will come on. Green LED on
indicates battery pack is fully charged and charger is
in maintenance charge mode.
NOTE: The green LED will remain on until the
battery pack is removed from the charger or charger is
disconnected from the power supply.
n If both yellow and green LEDs come on, this indicates
a deeply discharged or defective battery pack.
Allow the battery pack to remain in the charger for 15
to 30 minutes. When the battery pack reaches normal
voltage range, the red LED should come on. If the
red LED does not come on after 30 minutes, this may
indicate a defective battery pack and should be
replaced.
n After normal usage, a minimum of 1 hour of charging time
is required to fully recharge battery pack.
n The battery pack will become slightly warm to the
touch while charging. This is normal and does not
indicate a problem.
n Do not place the charger and battery pack in an area of
extreme heat or cold. They will work best at normal room
temperature.
NOTE: The charger and battery pack should be placed
in a location where the temperature is more than 50°F
but less than 100°F.
n When batteries become fully charged, unplug the
charger from power supply and remove the battery
pack.

Why did weed eater just stop working?


Take note: The battery pack will not reach full charge capacity on the first few charges. The break-in period requires 4 to 5 charging cycles, where the battery pack is completely discharged ( no motor sound or tool motion) and then fully recharged. During the break-in period the battery needs to be charged 5 or more hours continuously. The green LED light on the charger will come on in 3-5 hours,this is normal, Continue to leave the battery pack chargingvfor a total of 5 hours or more. After the break-in period, a full recharge is indicated on the charger when the green LED light is lit. Note: Do not charge battery in areas lower than 50 degrees or higher than 80 degrees. Looks like this will need to be charged in the house. I found all this information on page 14 in your manual.

I have a cst1000 cordless trimmer. The recharging unit has failed. Do you sell a replacement that has the red and green lights indicating charging or charged?
