This would suggest the fault is likely to be due to the motor shorting.

These types of fault are generally uneconomical to repair.

I would suggest you give the Bosch service centre a call on 0344(###) ###-#### they can often sell you reconditioned units in exchange for your drill at very low prices, and is probably your best bet.

They can often also give you a quote for spares if you want to try and fix it yourself.

Please let me know how you get on.
