Drills - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Hi, Thanks for getting back to me. The yellow and blinking red indicate a defective cell. Since it has lithium cells and is that new any repair to it would be a waste of your time. Ryobi tools purchased in 2008 have a 2 year warranty. I am guessing you probably got it at a home depot and you should return it under the warranty. All new Ryobi tools have a three year warranty. Good Luck! and Thanks for using fixya!

some batteries are bad from factory, you should exchange it for another and try again. Make sure the battery voltage and type (ie. lithium, Nickel Cadmium,etc.) match the charger. If not, you can buy most replacement batteries for older models on the internet. If a second battery doesn't work - it's the charger .

If this is a newer purchase, my newer Milwaukee flashes slow for the first two beats and then quickly while it reads the battery type and then shifts to the slow flashing charge light after it determines the type. this is because it is a smart-charger and can charge different types of batteries

If its not an bad soldering or an passive component , beware almost all brands wenn ordering an electric part for a charger its almost always more expensive then a complete (new charger ) the latest years there are more and more remplacement options to the customer , if there are defect components that are not made for ordering on marketing technical reasons and safety and more reasons. mosnfets (passive component almost sometimes fuse resistors but smd components to repair is not meaningfull . when termical defects are hidden.

Because it sat for 4 months your DC brush or brushes could be the problem. It might have accumulated dust and erosion in between the armature. If you have not yet bought a new one, spray it down with electronic cleaner insert the battery again and try it. It should improve some but if not, give it a light spray of WD-40, let it drip out some and then try again.

Not familiar with the Richardson but most drill presses have a slot in the quill. Pull the handle down just a little and look. You should see a vertical oval shaped slot. Obtain a "drift key" , insert and smack it with a soft faced hammer. You should be able to obtain or order the drift key through Ace Hardware or an industrial supply company.

Is Task Force the inexpensive Harbor Freight brand? If so find the nearest trash receptacle open lid and drop in! I've had chucks lock up even on so called better brands and as much as I do not like doing this find a way or a strong buddy to hold the drill down. Large Channelocks on the chuck try to snap the chuck in the CCW direction.

If you are looking to change the keyless chuck to a keyed one, give it up. I cannot get the keyless chuck off my drill and I suspect it has permanent set loctite which would require heating the shaft and chuck. Disassembly would be required to apply enough heat to break the bond. For me I cannot justify time and trouble to disassemble and reassemble the gearbox on the drill. I have found hex or triangular drill bits, hole saws, and countersink tools that will not slip in a keyless chuck but... I still do not like those darn things.

It looks as though to get the charger, you have to buy the drill as well. One of the problems of buying obscure makes.
