Purchased Metabo 18v pin nailer. Battery charged fine. Attempt to charge after a little use. Red light on charger stays on, nothing happens.

A red light normally means it is charging. If it only has a little use, the red light will turn green fairly quickly. What does the manual say? ..

I have a new Metabo SB18LTBL drill. The batteries have been fully charged but it won't start. What am I doing wrong?

  1. There is a fault on the battery, charger or drill. The battery is usually the problem. To check the battery, first charge it in the usual way. Then remove the battery and check its voltage with a voltmeter. If it is lower than expected, then the battery is faulty. If the voltage is OK, connect the battery terminals to a known resistor with an ammeter in series. For example, if you use an 18? resistor in series with an 18V battery, the resistor will draw a current of 1A. Note the time taken when the current starts to drop rapidly and disconnect the resistor immediately.
  2. Then multiply the current taken (in amps or milliamps) by the time in hours to find the capacity of your battery in amp-hours or milliamp-hours. If the capacity is as expected, then the fault is on the drill. If the capacity is much below the advertised capacity, then either the charger or the battery is faulty.
  3. The easiest way to determine whether the charger or battery is at fault is to borrow and try charging another good but discharged battery. If that battery is OK after charging, then the charger is OK, so the fault must be with your own battery. If the borrowed battery cannot be charged fully, then you have a charger problem.
  4. Note: The resistor may use a lot of power and get very hot. For example, an 18? resistor across 18 volts takes 1A, so the power used is 1A x 18V = 18 Watts. In this case, a suitable resistor would have a rating of at least 20 or 25 watts. Using a higher value resistance will reduce the power rating required, but it means you will have to check the battery for a longer time. Do not leave the resistor connected indefinitely as it will drain the battery too much and ruin it.

Metabo 18V cordless drill lithiom ion batteries not taking charge

Some batteries develop 'memory'. Run the batteries down until they are completely dead, then recharge them fully. Do this a couple times to get them back to normal. If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/craig_3fa289bf857b1a3c

My metabo khe2444 stopped working while i was drilling, what could be the common cause?

If it's fairly new, the electronic switch/speed control is the most likely thing to go out. Check and see if you can get full speed out of it. If so, then it's definitely the speed control. If it's been used a lot, then it could be the brushes or bearings/bushings. Here is one of the companies that sell parts for it. I'm including this so you can see a diagram. (I've never bought anything from this company, I'm not trying to promote them.) http://www.mtmc.co.uk/Metabo-KHE-2444-/-06154000-/-EU-230V-Spare-Parts__p-103435.aspx

Drill does not work when i press the trigger

Did you take a look at the carbon brushes?. Metabo has what they call Auto stop Carbon brushes. so if they are worn down they will pop away from the motor and the drill will simply not run. this happens when the brushes are basically worn out.
