CT-22 Switch problems
« on: August 20, 2017, 10:44 AM »
Good morning, I have a CT-22 that has been working great for many years.  Earlier this year the tool autostart feature stopped working with all my tools (Festools and non-festools), except for the Kapex (as in I can still power the \kapex from the vacuum).   Has anyone experience this issue?  How was it resolved?

I have.

I took it apart and cleaned all the dust that accumulated in there for years and it's worked fine ever since.

May not solve your issue, but it's worth a shot and a new switch is expensive.
