Question about Metabo W14 125 Ergo Angle Grinder 5"

2 Answers

Hello, my Metabo WE14-125 won't work anymore, there's a small red flickering light on my machine and I don't know what it means! At first I thought it were the carbon brushes, so I changed them, but the blinkin' light is still there and the machine still won't work. Can you help me fix this problem... sincerely, David

The light is an overload indicator that should come on when the tool is really hot. Internally, a sensor monitors the motor temperature and when the motor becomes too hot, tells the electronic to limit the voltage to the motor. This causes the tool to feel like it has no power. It should be run no load until it cools off, the LED goes out. The tool should have full power again.

If the light is on continuously, even when cool, and it doesn't run, get the tool to an authorizied service center; it may need a new armature. You can find your closest service center here:

Metabo we 14-150 runs then red light comes on and cuts out

this means the grinder is being over worked and is in the overheat protection mode. when this happens let the grinder continue to run at no load. just hold it and in about 20-30sec you will see the red light turn off and the grinder will go back up to speed. and you can get back to it.

I have a 2006 Dodge Caravan. The lights on the dash started flickering and the radio stoped working intermittantly. It won't start anymore and the power windows and locks don't work. We replaced...

did the battery check to be good? are the connections on the battery tight and clean? if so you may be getting a bad body control module , it controls power and ground to the systems you are having problems with.also check the ignition switch to see if you are getting power out of it to power the vehicle up.

Red power light means that the router won't work anymore?

The red light that you have there is a sign that router is having some hardware failure on it, what we can try here is to do a reset on it and see if that corrects the problem.

To reset it look for a small reset button on the router and then use a pen or paper clip then press and hold it for 30 seconds while power is ON then power off and power back on see if that corrects the issue. But if still the same you now need a new router if its still under warranty have it replace.

What's the meaning of a symbol looking red with a car/wrench on the instrument panel of a 2003 saturn l200? horn don't sound,ac won't work,doors won't unlock after ignition is turned off.

A wrench symbol is the equivalent to a check engine light. Take your car into a mechanic and let them diagnose the error code the engine light is storing to help diagnose the problem.

The red blinking light is an 'event' light, it does not necessarily mean a message is waiting for you, it will also start to flash if you have a missed call.
click 'up' on the round button to show the missed calls list and it will stop flashing, at least it does on mine!
