Clipper Creek charger, power fault and charging fault flashing
I bought a new Clipper Creek charger a few years back (2 years ago, I think?) when I had to have some other repairs done. It's been in a 110V outlet in my garage ever since.
Yesterday I was charging it like normal, and all seemed well. I unplugged it to go run an errand, then when I came back I saw that the charger was flashing: both "power fault" and "charging fault" were flashing. This was before I plugged it in, I just saw it as soon as I pulled in the garage.
Remembering that the "power fault" light usually implies an outlet issue, I moved it to another outlet in the garage. But nope, same issue.
Then I brought it in the house and plugged it in, and neither of the lights were flashing! So yay!
Next day I took it back to the garage, thinking maybe it just needed time to cool down and think about what it had done (haha), but nope, they're still flashing in the garage. In any outlet.
But I checked a few other tools in the same outlets, and they work fine. None of the tools I have were 3-prong, though, so that might be worth noting.
Being a bit of a DIYer, and not exactly keen on spending several thousand dollars on an electrician in a bad economy, I thought I'd turn to you guys first. Any suggestions on what I might try?
