A HOT BATTERY
When using the tool continuously, the batteries in the
battery pack will become hot. You should let a hot bat-
tery pack cool down for approximately
30 minutes before
attempting to recharge. When the battery pack becomes
discharged and is hot, this will cause the green LED to
come on instead of the red LED. After 30 minutes, reinsert
the battery pack in the charger. If the green LED continues
to remain on, return battery pack to your nearest Sears or
other qualified service center for checking or replacing.
NOTE: This situation only occurs when continuous use
of the tool causes the batteries to become hot. It does
not occur under normal circumstances.
Refer to CHARG-
iNG A COOL BATTERY PACK for normal recharging
of batteries. If the charger does not charge your battery
pack under normal circumstances,
return both the battery
pack and charger to your nearest Sears or other qualified
service center for electrical check.
