ETS EC125/3 EQ Power Problem
« on: September 18, 2019, 02:30 PM »
Okay, my sander is just 6 weeks out of warranty, and now it started to shut off automatically.
The problem seems to be the plug it connector on the tool, it seems loose. The cord works fine on other tools.
I also tried using a new cord, same issue. Is there anything to be done besides sending it in for repair?
Thanks

Do you have auto dc hose detection on? Could it be that your hose is loose or not plugged all the way in?

Check out Sedge's Instagram. I just saw one last night about a mode where the sander shuts down if the hose is disconnected. Could that be it?

No its not a hose issue. I can put pressure on the cord connection and it works fine.

Kindly ask service for leniency?
