When you are finishing the surface of wood, it's vital to maintain control. Work too fast or too slow and you risk ruining your hard work with unsightly scratches

Bosch ROS not powering on

Checked the net for answers and got a couple of maybe's. 1.) Brushes, 2.) variable speed control, which some were direct wiring.
I tried the brushes firs and that has solved the problem for now. I guess the brushes stuck or somehow lost contact.
I got a parts diagram and found the brushes (will be covered with dust). Took the springs out and stretched them a little, replaced and the sander turned on. You will need to remove the top cover to do this. Verdit is still out as to long term performance. Not a great start.

My particular sander was lightly used (second project) and it has not been abused.

Unit will not power on. Tried different circuits. Has had time to cool, but should not have been hot. Tool has had limited light use. Has not been dropped.

check the board with the variable speed control knob, mine failed once and would not power on. I believe I started having the same problem for the second time today.

Hi, Please don't shoot the messenger, but the answer to your question is, no. The 396 has a 3 horse 220vac single phase motor and no speed control.

Sander will operate only at a very low level of power.

It is either a bearing or bearings that are failing and causing the sander to slow down or the variable speed switch is failing.
