Question about Craftsman Drills
At first it does sound like the batteries.
How old is the drill? If it's old, then the batteries may either be dead, or need a careful, slow charge overnight to charge them properly. If new, then they may also need a really nice slow charge.
Sorry to ask, but have you fully charged all the batteries you have tried? !!! Many rechargeables lose a great portion of their charge if they sit for a long time.
Also, when using the drill, never use it until it runs the battery down so far stops, as this can damage batteries or discharge them to where again you need to very carefully charge them to get full charge back again.
Have you overloaded the drill:any plastic smells or have you drilled too hard and stalled it for a long time? That could cause motor damage. But look to the batteries first.
