Answer: 
If you took the time to go through the annoying, lenghty ridgid tool warranty you can take it to the rental department at Home Depot and they will check it out and replace. If it is only 3 weeks I would probably just return it for a refund and purchase another.

Make sure the battery is charged and connected to the dill correctly. It has a three year warranty and a lifetime if you registered the product. Did you take advantage of that? Carry it back to Home Depot and I'm sure they will replace it.

TRY YOUR BATTERY IN A DIFFERENT TOOL TO BE SURE THE BATTERY IS THE PROBLEM AND NOT THE TOOL. FROM WHAT YOU SAID, MY FIRST GUESS IS THAT YOUR TOOL IS THE PROBLEM (YOU MIGHT ALSO INSERT ANOTHER BATTERY IN THE TOOL). YOUR WARRANTY SHOULD REPLACE THE DRILL IF DEFECTIVE.
TESTING THE CHARGED BATTERY WITH A VOLTMETER SHOULD READ JUST ABOVE 18 VOLTS. IF LOWER (OR NO READING) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM YOU MAY NOT SOLVE

TESTING THE CHARGED BATTERY WITH A VOLTMETER SHOULD READ JUST ABOVE 18 VOLTS. IF LOWER (OR NO READING) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM YOU MAY NOT SOLVE BY YOURSELF. IT COULD HAVE A DEFECTIVE CELL OR AN INTERNAL SHORT. YOU MIGHT "JUMPSTART" THE BATTERY WITH A 24V MARINE BATTERY OR A MORE POWERFUL CHARGER, BUT IT MIGHT NOT WORK AND YOU WILL PROBABLY VOID YOUR WARRANTY, I WOULD RETURN IT TO RIDGID FIRST AND LET THEM REPLACE IT UNDER WARRANTY.

It sounds like you have an issue with your switch, especially since you've stated the battery is fully charged yet the two functions controlled by the switch, (power and light) don't function.
Give the Ridgid CS rep a call to expedite a repair/replacement.
Also, don't forget to process the info for your Lifetime Service for your new drill.

Hi RMC,
All Ridgid Power tools have a three year warranty. They also have a lifetime warranty if you register the tool with Ridgid.
Return your drill to the store you purchased it from with your original receipt for a replacement.

For the money..... The Ridgid Fuego. IMO! It has a lifetime warranty on both the batteries and the drill. If you go on-line and get a coupon,or, call Home Depot and ask for the 10% discount, it will come out to about $150 or thereabouts. Can't beat that deal.

Is there a better case for the compact drill and accessories.

This question is from Fuego 18-Volt Hyper Lithium-Ion 1/2 in. Compact Drill/Driver
Asked by
Jim81501
Grand Junction, Colorado
May 25, 2013
The compact drill kit came with a canvas bag which is pretty nice but I would like to get either an insert to hold the drill, batteries and charger or a case that will hold same. Seems to me just tossing the whole package into an open bag is asking for damage. I would hate to void my warranty because someone thought I was being abusive to my tools.

I have not yet found a use for the bag that came with the drill. The tools and batteries are first-rate, but the bag is flimsy and looks like a bad marketing decision. I have 2-handled zipper bags that came with Husky and DeWalt tools that are a lot sturdier and have side pockets for some accessories. There are unbranded bags 16" to 20" long that accommodate the drill(s) extra batteries and a charger Read More
I have not yet found a use for the bag that came with the drill. The tools and batteries are first-rate, but the bag is flimsy and looks like a bad marketing decision. I have 2-handled zipper bags that came with Husky and DeWalt tools that are a lot sturdier and have side pockets for some accessories. There are unbranded bags 16" to 20" long that accommodate the drill(s) extra batteries and a charger (and other tools like pneumatic nailers and staplers, saber saws and even the cordless RIDGID circular saw with blades and charger. I've never had a problem just carrying them loose in the bags, but I wouldn't toss the bags around. I also use a plastic box that comes with baby wipes to carry around a few small bits or blades in the soft bags.
For tools that have a lot of small parts or bits (like Dremel tools or the 3" to 4 1/2" grinders with several wheels) I use aluminum hardside cases filled with soft foam cut to fit the tools and bits (picture a camera case with cutouts for lenses and film canisters).

Answer: 
I am not aware of a different case that's made available. If there was, I would have purchased it myself. The drill is exceptional but the case leaves something to be desired. Anything that is made of canvass or ballistic nylon will not work. It should be made of molded plastic of some sort. I sure wish I could be of help.

To the best of my knowledge there is no option for a standard hard case for your kit. I share the same concerns as you've mentioned however, as long as you requested enrollment into the Lifetime Service Agreement for your kit, it's covered for the life you own those tools.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 140 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great warranty This seems to work as well as a "popular brand" drill I used, except the Ridgid had an issue of shutting itself off if overstressed. I used both the "popular brand" and this unit it to drill 6" holes in ice for icefishing at the same time. The "popular brand" drilled through without a problem, but when I applied a lot of pressure, the Ridgid would shut off and I had to release the trigger and press again to get it to run. Maybe a safety feature the Ridgid has that the "popular brand" doesn't--I don't know. When I didn't force the drill, I had no problem. I doubt it would do the same when used for typical applications where less torque is applied. It has worked fine for any screws I've used it for. I would like it to have come with larger capacity batteries, but having come with 2 lighter, smaller batteries isn't bad. I really like the LED charge indicator on the batteries and the charger. Can't beat the warranty, the primary reason I purchased this over the other "popular brand." March 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ridgid 18V Drill I had bought a 18v Ridgid drll with the life time warranty which I registered and keep copy of the bill . I had no problem to replace the nickel cadminium battery/. I bought also the combo drill and hammer 18v lithium battery which is a very good set for the price Be shure to register all the items December 17, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Warranty will not be honored I have had numerous cordless tools from Ridgid and they will not honor the warranty when it comes to battery replacement. They say you have to go to a service center, closest over 120 miles away. When items, several drills and driver tools were purchased I was told just bring the items to the store for replacement. I specifically asked about the lifetime battery warranty. When I had an issue with a bad battery the store said they could not replace it Ridgid changed their policy on warranty claims and I had to call the 800 number. The warranty is useless for the Lee County Florida area. I will never buy another ridged tool. December 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Drill at a good value! Extra battery is a good idea. I have been using a Rigid 18V set for several years which includes a saws all, skill saw, light and drill. This set has performed excellent and the batteries are still working fine. I wanted a smaller drill for tight spots as well as reduced fatigue. The Fuego Compact fits the bill perfectly. The fact that it comes with an extra battery, charger and nice bag is a bonus. The built in light really helps you see what you are working on. Great product at a great value! My only disappointment was the Warranty Registration requires upc labels and purchase receipts to be mailed in. I couldn't find the upc label on the box. I would rather register online. January 24, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect cordless drill Have seen a lot of good reviews and some that baffled me. I have screwed together walls, hung sheetrock, hung cedar siding, drilled holes, etc. for 6 months now. This little guy is what you need. That's why I bought it, tired of dragging that cord around and tripping over it for our little addition/garage conversion. I learned long ago that a cordless is for the guy who does this kinda thing day in and out. If you don't, the batteries will probably die. If you just need an occasional drill, I suggest buying a corded one. Not as convenient, but the torque will be there when you need it. There are bigger cordless drills out there that will handle the torque, but they'll cost ya a little more money too. December 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best value for the money! Ive been in maintenance for the past 12+years, Ive used and owned about all of them. This is by far the BEST one I have used, you cant beat the features, the light comes on when you hold the drill instead of waiting till your drilling, (little late then), compact, good balance and feel, plenty of power, and its a RIDGID...This one is replacing a 6mth old PC, and yes you have to register on line and mail that in with the UPC from the box, but come on, its for LIFETIME......how much better can that get...or buy one of the "others", then start buying battery's then see which one is more of a hassle... I give it 10 stars......... February 11, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NEVER BUY ANOTHER BATTERY, WOOHOO!!! I have a perfectly good working Craftsman 12V drill that eats NiCad batteries. Decided to go for a higher quality drill with Li-Ion. You already know the top names in this price range and they are all fine products. What sold me on this drill was the lifetime service that includes battery replacement. Used it right out of the box w/o charging to do a dozen 2.5" screws into very hard wood. Actually had to slow it down to avoid over-driving screws. Battery "fuel gauge" still showed 1/2 charge which is how it left the factory. Likes: small size, work light, chuck works well, lots of torque, fast charge. Cons: None so far March 27, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great option with less weight I upgraded from an older Ridgid drill to the new hammer drill, but it's a bit heavier and came with the 4AH battery. I wanted a lighter drill with the 2AH batteries, and this fit the bill. Still plenty of power, but much lighter between the battery and drill. I often use these for assembly and the lighter weight is great along with still using 18V batteries so Everything I have is interchangeable. That's why I didn't want to go to the 12v units.
