Any sparkys want to try and fix my DA please?!

Got a Argos challenger DA a few years ago and been working well untill today. Had an intermittent fault cutting out but wiggling the wire seemed to make it work.

Finished the car and thought it mite have come loose inside so took the back off. All the wires seemed ok and it still worked giving them a wiggle. Cldnt see no loose connections etc. Then it stopped working full stop :-/ checked fuse in plug and all ok.

Can post out if some one fancies a challenge to fix it please. It doesn’t owe me anything so if it gets lost in the post or can’t be fixed then no prob. Will package and PayPal postage :-) plus a pint - London prices :-)



Many thanks

Check the electric brush...maybe it only needs a replacement.

This was exactly the same problem I had with my DAS6, turned out it was a break in tthe cable about 6 inches from the machine , a friend of mine cut the cable and re attached.

We have a lot of angle grinders at work and this is a common problem ,usually a break in the cable just below the handle.exact same symptoms intermittent then packs in completely.does give you the chance to put a longer cable though.

Was going to say the same. Fixed loads of hand held appliances at work due to breaks in the cable. Easy step is to replace cable if nothing else is obvious

The machine arrived this morning.
As expected, a break in the cable.
It was on the neutral side as it enters the machine.

All up and running again
Have it a little service too - checked brushes, greased the hearing.
