Question about Bosch 5" Small Angle Grinder
Only a few hours on my bosch 1800 angle grinder. While using it I lightly tapped it on the ply top bench by mistake. It stopped cold and shows no signs of life. Opened it up and all looks normal, not much dust around switch and all. Could this be a brush backed out by the force of the bump? Bad switch? If it was the switch woud I expect symptoms before it stopped completely?
Yes, if you have taken the handle halves apart (unplug tool first) check with your meter thru the blades on the cord to the switch contacts and then lock the switch in the on position and check across the switch and then remove the brush caps and brushes and check thru to the brush holders, if at any time you lose continuity then that would be your problem. Let me know if I can help further.
