Hello, a dead man switch functions in this manner. As long as you hold the switch down the grinder functions, and as you know when you release it the grinder stops. This is a good safety feature in that if you drop the grinder of lose control of it, if the grinder stays running it could cause a lot of damage to material or your body. The switch can seem to be a pain when having to hold it down all the time, but it is a safety feature that can actually save your life in the case of you losing control of the unit.

Cord won't pull more than a few inches on new mower. Seems locked up. I've only ran it once.


Ensure the cable for the dead man switch is not kinked. Follow the cable from the handle to the engine. There are 2 bolts that mount the dead mans switch to the engine , remove bolts, remove dead mans switch from engine, let hang, try starting. If starting, clean dead man contacts and reinstall. You may have to remove recoil rope assembly and engine cove to get to dead mans switch.

I own a metabo 9-125 quick but can't don't know how to place the blade


On the silver part on top of the grinder is a button , press this button and hold it down. now turn the blade until it stops moving, this locks the blade, keep holding the button down and turn grinder over ,and turn the nut counter clockwise, and remove it , take old blade off ,put on new one .it should go over the shaft and at the bottom on a "fit" Make sure it is on the "fit". replace the nut and tighten. If you dont get the nut tight enough it will loosen while in use and the disc you are cutting/grinding with will wobble and may even come off causing possible injury .

I had been using this grinder for about 2 weeks with no problems. A few days ago while using it it just popped and hasn't worked since.


These are great grinders. I have two of them. One version (more expensive one) has soft start and good overload system. Other version is basic grinder. if it (popped) most likely a short in the motor. Is it possible you got an unusual amount of grinding dust into the grinder? This grinder has a safety feature on the brushes, that keeps from burning up the armature when the brushes wear out. I doubt you've worn out a set of brushes in 2 weeks, unless you've been using it non stop. At least one of the brushes has a small plastic insulating pin inside the carbon. When the brush wears down enough to expose the plastic pin, the spring loaded pops out, lifting the brush from the armature , which opens the circuit. You could remove the brush holders and inspect the brushes. If it is 2 weeks old it is under warranty, and you should return it where you bought it.

Rancilio Rocky is dead


Hi. I had the same problem. Called my trusty local repair guy who said spray a little canned air around the front switch (without taking anything apart). I carefully cleaned around the switch, since this problem is caused by dirty connections behind the switch, then I blew a few blasts into the cracks. Presto! The machine works. Repair guy said sometimes the switch goes bad, too, and needs replacing.
