RO150 repair cost
« on: March 11, 2018, 10:16 AM »
My 5 years old RO150 went "south" on yesterday; it stopped spinning after I turn it on for 5 seconds. :( Thus, I disassembled it and inspected the issue, and I found that it could be either armature or the electronic controller; The field coil is still in good condition, showing me ~0.9Ω on each side.

Therefore, I want to know if anyone here has sent the ROTEX for repair and usually how much it will cost to replace the armature?

This is more a question for Festool's service department, but I wouldn't be surprised if part + labour + shipping is easily $150.

If you're comfortable servicing your own sander, just order the part, think it's around $50. But you must be really sure it's that part that's broken or you've spent the money for nothing.
