I haven't got the answer, i live in a council flat (converted house), we live up stairs. we have had our electric checked over and over again and they cannot find anything wrong, my husband and i have thought maybe that we are connected to the people in the ground floor flat, and when our electric trips out we can hear them banging around like they're shutting cupboards and stuff. nobody can sort out our problem and wondered if anyone on here would know???

Makita grinder keeps tripping circut breaker

Control where the tool is used first for undervoltage on the mains supply group.

If it is everywhere a problem FIRST replace the circuit breaker.

After that control all connectors last check interference suppression capacitor.
If all are controled , relace armature or electric field or both.

Bad bearing on makita ga4530. How do I get to the upper bearing?

You have to take the gear housing apart, remove the hex-nut and spiral bevel gear on the end of the armature so you can pull the armature out of the bearing. Then remove the retaining ring, o-ring and bad bearing for replacement.

My Dremel max won't start

Check and replace brushes as necessary. Also, check that the actual electrical switch is functional. I had to add a drop of crazy glue on the tip of the interior plastic handle housing that supports/puts pressure on the electrical switch to keep it in position. The off/on thumb slider actually extends well into the housing and activates the electric switch by moving back and forth. Over time, the plastic wears and does not plunge the on off switch button. A drop of glue on the tip of the plastic post extends it & causes enough pressure to make the electric switch to function again. Brushes (filed to fit) and glue = good as new Dremel :o)

After using reset once, the motor on 4106 pro-tech table saw does not run

Thank you for posting your question here on

The motor reset is designed to trip if the motor is overheating. Overheating can be caused by mechanical failure such as bearings or buildup of dust/debris inside the motor, or electrical failure such as a bad capacitor or failing winding. You may want to take the motor to a local electric motor repair shop for an inspection. The cost for one, if any, is usually low. Be sure to ask what it is prior to dropping it off so there are no surprises later. The motor may just need a good cleaning and a set of bearings to return it to like-new condition.
