Fatmax FMC710 Multitool won't turn on?

Postby ER indoors » Fri Apr 21, 2017 10:20 am

Hey
I need help! Decided to sand doorframe while hubbys at work. Found a tool in the man cave that looked like it would do the job - multitool with sander attachment already in place.
Started it, rather noisy at 8am so thought I'd wait till after 9 ( considerate neighbour). Now it won't turn on again! The light comes on, I've checked the battery and changed the battery. Instructions has no troubleshooting section :(

Can I get this sorted without having to tell hubby that I a) entered the man cave b) broke his fatmax?

Have you checked that the batteries are charged? If they're low then there my be enough for the light but not for the motor. You could try charging a battery and then try again?

Unfortunately that hasn't worked, fully charged two different batteries still got the same.

The light comes on, but nothing else happens. :?

Sounds like it's a warranty job then I'm afraid. That may mean you have to confess though!

I'd confess. Otherwise he might not notice for a while if he doesn't go to use it, and the warranty might have run out by then. Up to you though. You can play innocent if you prefer!
