Festool Vacuum 'Auto Start' not working
« on: October 09, 2020, 02:46 AM »
Hi guys,

I have a 3 month old Festool CT 26 vacuum, hardly used... but last night I had the Capex 120 plugged in and after 8 cross cuts the vac won’t automatically start.

The saw works perfect, the vac is working on manual, but not auto start with Capex plugged in

Is there a switch to reset or is it a failure in the vacuum?

MFK 700
DF 500
C18 18V
