Why does a Bosch trimmer stop working when held at certain angles?The most common reason for this type of an issue would be a broken wire with the insulation still in place. Usually the point at which the wire enters the unit is the area where a lot of movement such as bending and flexing occurs. Most likely this is where the wire could have snapped. A solution you can try would be to take the unit apart until a point where the cord can be cut around six inches around the area where it enters the appliance. This action removes the bad section of the wire all together. After doing this, if the problem persists, there is probably something which has disconnected or come loose within the trimmer. It could be a faulty brush or metal contact from a switch.
