ETS EC150/5 LED Not working
« on: January 11, 2017, 08:34 PM »
I just noticed after a couple months of operation that my LED light on the ETS has never lit up.  I've never seen it light up.  Have had it connected to a CT-26 the whole time.  Shouldn't it glow green when the sander is operating, and flash if the dust hose is removed while operating?  Am I doing something wrong or does the sander need servicing?  Thanks!

Check your manual, but I think that only comes on if you have the no start/without hose connected feature enabled .


If enabled, the sander won't start with out a hose connected.  I don't use that feature, so I may have it backwards.

Yes, I think you're right. The LED is only used when the feature to automatically stop when the hose detaches is enabled.

to enable it, check you're manual, there's some button holding sequence you'd have to go through
