INFORMATION FOR RECHARGING HOT BATERY
When using your drill-driver continuously, the batteries in
your battery pack will become hot. You should let a hot
battery 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 battery pack in charger. If green LED continues
to remain on, return battery pack to your nearest Sears
Repair Center for checking or replacing.
Note: This situation only occurs when continuous use of
your drill causes the batteries to become hot. It does not
occur under normal circumstances. Refer to "CHARGING
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 Repair Center for electrical check.
INFORMATION FOR RECHARGING COOL
If battery pack is below normal temperature range, the
green LED on charger will come on. Allow battery pack to
reach normal temperature, then the red LED will come on.

recharging of batteries. If the charger does not charge
your battery pack under normal circumstances, return
