Customer Question

my DeWalt 708 doesn't start. It worked one day and the next day nothing!!! I replaced the brushes, but the old ones were not really bad. It still does not start. Do you think I need a new switch?

Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. I suggest removing the switch and connecting the wires together to bypass it. Plug it on to determine if it will start
