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

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.

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.

Fuego 18-Volt Hyper Lithium-Ion 1/2 in. Compact Drill/Driver is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 140.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Drill/Driver Just got the Rigid a few months ago...already have done several projects and it's worked great. Main reason for going with Rigid is the lifetime warranty, particularly on the batteries. Batteries charge very quickly (~20 min) and last a long time when drilling small holes/driving screws. Put this thing to the test drilling through 8.5" of PT lumber with a 1/2" spade bit - I was impressed by how well it powered through, but the batteries overheated quickly and I ended up only getting two holes bored and countersunk before having to change batteries. That task is better left to a high-torque corded drill anyway. Belt clip and work light are two features that I didn't even care about, but I fell in love with both of them rather quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.........

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice size and weight This drill has plenty of power for medium term continual use. Charges quickly. The chuck grabs hard and the light is a nice feature. Be sure to mail your warranty material including the UPC bar off the box.
Date published: 2012-12-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and light but delivers. I use this drill daily for work under extreme conditions; wet, hot and cold. After 9 months of heavy use, I am overall very pleased by the performance of this little drill. First and foremost, the compact size and light weight are a big plus. Other big plusses: Great torque - even on the high speed setting. Placement of the LED below the grip for useable light in dark spots. FAST battery charging! I also like the fast recovery from the overvoltage shut-off - my other brand lithium system would often simply freeze up and refuse to work again and in some cases, the batteries could never be charged again, period. My only complaint is that the compact batteries don't seem to have as much run-time capacity as I would like. Overall, the RIdgid Fuego 18v compact drill has passed my brutal field test.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very knowledgable employee My yellow and blackt drill had been stolen so I stopped by the Damonte Ranch HD to buy a new one. I was redirected towards the Rigid 18v Fuego by the tool corral guy, an older guy that knew his department in/out. I'm very impressed by the warranty, the time and technology Rigid has invested into turning their name around and making it a contractors tool now. There is also a service center 10miles from my house, so I basically have a 18v drill and batteries for life. How can you beat that? Thanks for renewing my faith in Home Depot. I'll be sure to brag to all the yellow and black guys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE ONLY CORDLESS DRILL TO OWN THIS IS MY SECOND CORDLESS DRILL. I OWNED A 14.4 NOW PURCHASED THE 18V LITHIUM. RIDGID REALLY WARRANTIES THEIR PRODUCTS INCLUDING BATTERIES... YES BATTERIES SO YOU NEVER HAVE TO BUY OR PAY TO FIX THE DRILL. I HAVE OVER THE YEARS DISCARDED DEWALT, PORTA CABLE, DRILLS BECAUSE THE BATTERIES WERE TOO EXPENSIVE TO BUY... RIDGID HAS ALREADY REPLACED MY BATTERIES ON THE 14.4 SO THEY ARE REAL... GOOD POWER, GOOD WARRANTY, GOOD COMPANY
Date published: 2012-01-15
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Drill.....BEWARE of batteries This is a very tough review to write. I say this because the Drill is absolutely fantastic. However, this is where the fantastic immediately comes to a halt. The issue is with the battery(s). I recently built two Loft-Style beds for my young kids. It was quite an undertaking and I needed an 18v drill for the majority of the assembly. I went down to the local Home Depot and picked up this kit; primarily because it came with two batteries. I know most will balk that a two star rating is too strong of a negative to rate this, but the batteries are the main and driving force behind the drill. Anyhow, I noticed after drilling two 2 1/2 inch screws into a 4x6 the battery already depleted a whole tick on the battery guage. I thought this was just bad luck, but I tried recharging, depleting both batteries over a span of a week just to make sure. Essentially what I am left with is an awesome drill with two batteries that will last no more than 20-35 minutes tops with light use. I did indeed exchange the kit and experienced the same thing a second time around.....sigh. I do love this drill but the batteries are abysmal at best. I think I may spend the money and get the bigger batteries to see if this makes a difference. So yes and no do I recommend this kit :/
Date published: 2014-01-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product Great product, However, understand ONLY the batteries that come with the set are under warranties for life. Make sure they are properly registered. If you buy a new battery from Home Depot and it is NOT part of a set of tools it has a warranty of 3 years. Also, if you do get a battery changed out under warranty, it is YOUR responsibility to get the serial numbers on the new battery updated in their online system. I was under the impression the local authorized Rigid repair shop would do this. WRONG! Their warranty is great, however, you will have to work hard to get it.
