I have a Wagner 12V cordless that works fine except that the charger isn't
working anymore. I contacted the company (what a run-around - don't get me
started! Suffice it to say I won't be purchasing any more Wagner
equipment!), and they told me that they don't support these tools anymore.
If the machine was purchased less than 3 years ago - and you have a receipt
proving it - you can return it for a refund. Otherwise you're out of luck -
no parts, no info, no help, no service. The drill I have is past warranty.
I have since opened up the charger and found that the problem seems to be
simply a burnt out resistor. The resistor, however, is burnt badly enough
that I cannot identify it's value ( the color coded rings). As I cannot get
any info from the company - they supposedly don't have that information
themselves (???) - and I can't find the info I need on the web (so far - I'm
still looking), I thought I'd post here to see if anyone else had run across
the same problem, or any other that required them to open the charger, and
knew what the resistance value or color code of the larger or R2 resistor is
supposed to be. Otherwise I may be stuck with a functioning drill and 2
good batteries that I can't use. Any help would be appreciated.
