Hello Fellow Lumberjocks,
I have a one year old Milwaukee Fuel 7-1/4” Circular Saw (2731-21) and I’ve experienced a second battery failure.
Here’s how it manifests itself: I occasionally use the tool to make a rough cuts, clean and store it away for a few weeks before I need it again. Before packing it away the battery is usually around 2 bars on the fuel gauge. When I go to use the tool again, the battery is showing no bars and when placed on charge, the charger alternates red/green meaning defective battery. BTW, I remove the battery from the tool when stored.
This issue is extra troublesome for me because I do not live in a country that has a Milwaukee Repair Center, so I have to ship it overseas for warranty repairs. This obviously extends the time and adds a shipping cost to my warrantied tool.
I’m just wondering if anyone has encountered this problem because I do not know if I have a defective saw or I’ve received two bad batteries.
Any help you can offer is much appreciated.
