and/or serious personal injury.
[] Keep cord and charger from heat to prevent
damage to housing or internal parts.
[] Do not let gasoline, oils, petroleum-based
products,
etc. come in contact with plastic parts. They contain
chemicals that can damage, weaken, or destroy plastic.
[] Before using battery charger, read all instructions
and cautionary markings in this manual, on battery
charger, battery, and product using battery to prevent
misuse of the products and possible injury or damage.
[] Do not operate charger with a damaged cord or
plug, which could cause shorting and electric shock. If
damaged, have the charger replaced by an authorized
serviceman.
_1_
[] Do not operate charger if it has received a sharp
blow, been dropped, or otherwise damaged in any
way. Take it to an authorized serviceman for electrical
check to determine if the charger is in good working
order.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of electric shock
or damage to the charger and battery, charge
only nickel-cadmium rechargeable batteries as
specifically designated on your charger. Other
types of batteries may burst, causing personal
injury or damage.
[] Do not use charger outdoors or expose to wet or
damp conditions. Water entering charger will increase
the risk of electric shock.
[] Use of an attachment not recommended
or sold
by the battery charger manufacturer
may result in
a risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric shock,
fire, or serious personal injury.
[] Do not abuse cord or charger. Never use the cord to
carry the charger. Do not pull the charger cord rather
than the plug when disconnecting from receptacle.
Damage to the cord or charger could occur and create
an electric shock hazard. Replace damaged cords
immediately.
[] Make sure cord is located so that it will not
be stepped on, tripped over, come in contact
with sharp edges or moving parts or otherwise
subjected to damage or stress. This will reduce the
risk of accidental falls, which could cause injury, and
damage to the cord, which could result in electric
shock.
[] Do not disassemble charger. Take it to an authorized
serviceman when service or repair is required. Incorrect
reassembly may result in a risk of electric shock or fire.
[] Unplug charger from outlet before attempting any
maintenance or cleaning to reduce the risk of
electric shock.
[] Disconnect charger from the power supply when
not in use. This will reduce the risk of electric shock
or damage to the charger if metal items should fall into
the opening. It also will help prevent damage to the
charger during a power surge.
[] Risk of electric shock. Do not touch uninsulated
portion of output connector or uninsulated battery
terminal.
[] Save these instructions.
Refer to them frequently
and use them to instruct others who may use this
tool. If you loan someone this tool, loan them these
instructions also to prevent misuse of the product and
possible injury.

A HOT BATTERY
PACK
When using the tool continuously, the batteries in the
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
the battery pack in the charger. If the 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
the tool causes the batteries to become hot. It does not
occur under normal circumstances. Refer to "Charging
a Cool 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.
