So I bought a c12 drill set and I plugged in the charger and charged a battery. It went solid red and I smelled smoke. Popped the top off the charger and found a burnt resistor. Was wondering if anyone who had this charger could take a picture of the circuit board so I can get the resistor color code to get another one. Here is a picture of the resistor location.

I have some experience fixing electronics. Resistors rarely just go bad. That was caused by a short. You may have a shorted battery or a bad transistor somewhere. Look along the traces that connect to the resistor and you will likely fine another bad component or two.

It looked as off the connections were loose. Prob from being shipped to me and being an older charger. Also I forgot to mention that I happened after I cleaned everything off with some simple green. I made sure to only use a little cleaner on the charger but maybe some dropped down into the board.

I know it’s a late reply, but I hope it might help someone who stumbles upon this tread. The resistor color code is white-brown-brown hence 910 Ohms.

Have your say...
