Homeowner bought a used Bosch 11264evs SDS Max hammer drill to retrofit
his 80 year old house with hold-downs and hired me to do the work. After
drilling 4 holes the Service Reminder Light started blinking and the and
the drill shut down. Bummer. It will take weeks to service it. Does
anyone know how to jump start this critter. It has to be good for a few
more holes. It was doing great on the ones I drilled so far.
From the manual:
When the service reminder light lights up or blinks, this will indicate
that the cut-out carbon brushes will switch off the tool in
approximately 8 hours. After that period, the light will go off and the
tool will stop running. The tool must then be sent to a service center
Guess you are wrong
If you want to be a dick about it, see if anyone else offers help.
Probably not though. I'm a pretty experienced homeowner with over 30
years of do-it-yourself experience and I've never heard of a simple
power tool that shuts itself off and won't run again until you send it
in for service. I'm betting it's the same for pretty much most people.
Now you know why the homeowner got the tool so cheap, at least... The
previous owner knew it was just about done, and got rid of it before
it bit it.
