ETS 150/3 Sander, intermittent starts and stops
« on: January 31, 2021, 11:39 AM »
My ETS 150/3 Sander cuts out when I use it.  It appear to be a problem with the Plug-It connection on the sander itself, as the cord works on my other sander and tools.   I can jiggle the connection/cord and the sander will run but not continue.
 I opened the top of the sander and it looks like a simple task to replaced the cord connection of the sander.  Could someone advise me  if this part is available for replacement and any important details in this task?
