Festool Conturo KA65 Problem! need help
« on: October 21, 2018, 04:23 AM »
So im about to start edgebanding a big job for a store due this Thursday... and all of a sudden my Festool Conturo stops working:( it turns on, then shows a book error 10 , cools down and shuts off. The only thing that keeps it up and running is opening the glue compartment. Does anyone know how to get this thing running or what it could be? I would go the warranty route if I wasn't on a terrible deadline.

Error 10 is the glue heating unit if I recall correctly,it is often changed with the 2 fans.It is quite pricey.I would suggest cleaning and blowing carefully the whole machine,then if problem persists you should contact the service.I hope It is under warranty.

Just saw it is not under warranty..a cheaper way is to try changing the heating rods(4+1) instead of the whole unit but It could also be a waste.
