Bosch 3107dvs problem. sander quit working,
What information do you need?
Hello .. can you describe how this sander came to be not working ?
wee you using it ? or just tried it ?
did you check the outlet with another electrical tool ?
or did you try this one in another outlet ?
Don't know where my original info went but I will repeat. Sander quit working. When tested had power through the on/off switch to the speed governor but
not out of it. Replaced governor. Same result. Replaced it again with same result. If governor bypassed, sander operates great but only at max speed.
OK .. I am not that familiar with that type of control ..
seems that if you replaced the governor and still had the problem .. maybe there is an oops in the wiring to it
I am going to opt out and see if anyone else can pick this up ..
do not start another thread .. come back to this one for future interaction
you aren't listening. I have power to the speed governor when the on/off switch is on. but none out of it. When it is bypassed with power from the switch, it operates at full speed.
Governor comes with two spade connectors, one in, one out. Each is a unique shape and cannot be confused. Again, when power is routed around the speed governor to the same connection on the motor, the sander runs fine. I can't believe that all three speed governors are/were faulty. I guess I may just have to get used to a one speed sander.
