PS 420 EQB Won’t Turn On Again After Running
« on: March 20, 2021, 08:03 AM »
I have a ~4 year old PS 420 EQB jigsaw that has been used very little. Probably less than 30 minutes total run time.  I pulled it out recently to use, and after an initial use of maybe 30 seconds to a minute, when I shut it off, it will not turn on again immediately.  I hit the power switch and only the LED light will come on; the tool will not start.  I have to leave the tool for some extended period of time - maybe 15, 20, 30 minutes - before it will turn on again.

Any ideas?
