Flashing Green & Red

Recommended Posts

I bought a MILWAUKEE cordless hand drill, rechargeable battery, and I've had the battery pack on the charger but the lights are flashing green and red.  The instruction book states faulty battery... So i took it back to home depot and got it replaced with same.  Came home plugged it in, and the same thing; its flashing green and red! What the (#$&(&T%#!!!!  Should I return this one also?  Should I plug in over night? What drill should I purchase?  Any recommendations?

It seems strange that both would have a bad battery, as it's not a common thing for a new battery to be bad.  Even though its annoying I would return it and although it's a bad first experience I still wouldn't shy away from milwaukee as they do make good tools and batteries.

Could the charger be defective?

Do you know anyone close by that has Milwaukee cordless tools that would let you put the battery in their charger?

I have 13 batteries and 6 chargers, I have never had this problem.

It's a crapshoot, I have had 2 bad batteries and one bad charger (brand new).

 

Best thing to do is take it right to a Milwaukee service Depot. They can test them onsite.

I had the same problem and called Milwaukee tech support.  He said there is a protective coating on the terminals and you have to "slam" them in several times to get a good connection the first time. then you should be fine.

I had a similar problem when I bought my M18 grease gun. It came with a battery and charger but since I already had a charger from a previous Milwaukee purchase I didn't bother to unpack the new charger. Anyway, when I placed the 1.5AH battery into my existing charger it just flashed Red/Green. I unpacked the new charger and inserted the battery and it started charging just fine. Now that it is charged it works fine on both my Milwaukee chargers. Weird, eh?
