Cord wrapped around unit while polishing and shut down. cannot restart

possibly ripped the wires from switch or broke the wires in the cord itself. You can go to for a breakdown on this tool, but would have to guess at the above.

Hi, Unfortunately there is no external test, It has to be opened and troubleshot with a multimeter. Especially something with a variable speed controller, power cord, brushes, switches, ect. It could be several things. If you are technical enough to take it apart let us know we will try to help. Good Luck to you!

Makita 9227c stall

Hi hope to help
Have you tried this unplug the machine! then cut the cable about 6" from the machine then strip the machine and rewire the long length of cable back to the switch. The 6" that has been cut from the machine discard it.
The problem i used to get is where the cable is clamped in the handle the wire inside the insulation cracks so that when the machine is in one position is ok but then when is moved it goes off again.
It also could be the field coil (part of the motor) if it gets hot then cuts out the field could be braking down!!!
hope this helps.
