Festool MIDI issues
« on: November 15, 2022, 10:09 AM »
I have a midi that is about 6 yrs old. Recently, I’ve noticed that whether it’s on manual or auto, it just runs. In other words, my auto start switch isn’t auto switching, rather, it operates just like manual.  Any ideas on a fix? Not a huge issue other than being annoying…

First thing I would do is remove the switch and give it a cleaning/inspection, then reconnect and see if it works. If not, order a replacement if you want it working.
