Hi. It all depends on the age of it as there are 2 different types of electronics fitted to the TE76.
If you have an early model, the service light came on when the brushes were worn or it was in need of a service. Check your brushes 1st. then to reset the light, simply pull the trigger and hold it untill it resets.
If you have the newer type then you will need to reset the service light by attaching a data reader to the service light. this data reader plugs in to a PC, you will also need the HILTI ODA Software to go with it. Basicaly you need to send it back to hilti to have is serviced and reset. if your machine is less than 2 years old, this is FREE. just phone hilti and ask them to collect it. they will pick it up, service it and get it back to you in 3 working days. if you not sure how old your machine is simply phone Hilti and ask them, quoting the serial number. this is etched into the plastic on the left side of the machine underneath the white writing on the motor housing. Good Luck

You did not mention which model it is. Some of Hilti's hammer drills have a theft protection where it has to be scanned by a preprogrammed key. If the tool is activated it will work until unplugged for 20 minutes then it will not work again until scanned by the key.

SOURCE: te 76 service light is on, brushes are new.

Take all the screws from the handle to the motor housing out and unplug handle. While holding the trigger in the on position plug in power cord and still holding trigger remove plug, reassemble and try it. Sometimes you have to plug in and then squeeze trigger and hold it and then unplug but either one should work. If not you might have a switch problem. Let me know if you need more help and if I have helped you would you please rate this response accordingly. Thank you.

What causes my Shark Vacuum to work only intermittently?


If the brush roller operation is intermittent, there may be hair jammed inside the end caps. The brush roller can be removed and the end caps also for inspection. Intermittent operation also can be caused by a stretched drive belt.
The periodic failure to pick up may be caused by something such as a ball of hair migrating through your vacuum cleaner and stopping from time to time to test your patience

Brush won't turn on dyson dc07


There was a belt that was to be attached to the motor shaft under the belt cover, be sure that it didn't pop off. the recommended fix is to replace the clutch, not the belts in the clutch. if you only replaced the belts it could still be a bad clutch.

If you need any help feel free to contact me.

Brissell proheata 2x doesn't have suction or the red brushes won't rotate on the hand tools?


Check the brushes for hair or some other clogging material and remove it. If the brushes can't spin freely, there is not enough suction power to make them spin.

My te70 doesnt wok and the red light is on


The service light usually comes on when the brushes are low. The brushes usually have a small metal tab that grounds out when the brushes wear down to the point of needing to be changed.

BRUHES WON'T ROTATE


The brushes are operated by suction from the motor. Most of the problems with these models are in the turbine, it just needs to be serviced, some replaced. You can check the filter under the bottom (a red or white pull tab). Also check the lid on the lower tank to on properly.

WHEN YOU PUSH THE BUTTON NOTHING HAPPENS, THE RED LIGHT IS ON


that is a service light and means there is some type of failure. If this tool is under warranty I would call 1-800-879-8000 and see about getting repaired. If not go to Hilti.com and download a breakdown for this tool. You might want to check the brushes first for wear because they have a sensor that triggered the light.

My hoover carpet scrubber the brushes won


(1) Remove the brush block and assure the presence of the square drive pin on top of one brush. It should be about 1/4 inch square, two inches long to connect o the drive mechanism.

(2) Remove and clean the filter screen from the base, behind the brushes. Squeeze the two red tabs together, and pull down from the base. Clean the hiar/debris from the screen.

(3) Assure the Brush Speed knob on the hood is NOT set to the OFF position.
