It sounds like you have a bad battery charger, but it could also be slightly corroded battery contacts. Make sure the contacts on the battery and inside the computer are clean (you can use a qtip and alcohol, or a pencil eraser). You will have to measure or have someone measure the output of the charger, to make sure it's putting out a good charging voltage. You can use a voltmeter to do that.
If you can run it by Best Buy, they can check to see if the charger is good. There's also a possibility that the battery has gone bad, and in that case, they may not hold a charge.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

My kindle fire wont charge when i plug it in, whats wrong with it?

Hard to say, is the cord/transformer working? Are you getting DC voltage at the Plug? Is the Kindle Cord jack dammaged, pulled, jerked, yanked, ...etc. Battery dead? You have to test the cord on another Kindle, or use another cord on yours and follow the problem through the AC/DC circuit.
