Hi and thank you for choosing Just Answer.
I am Tech Michael and I will be assisting you today.
Please be patient as these are technical questions that may require a bit of conversation to solve. Also remember to be detailed in your description of the problem. That will help me make a diagnosis quickly for you.
How old is your Rotak?
Also when was it last working normally?
And when you try to use the Rotak, does it exhibit any sign of life, low speed or an electrical click.
Thank you

the machine is just over 1 year old lasted used in april

no there is no sign of anything completely dead

Thanks for that information.
These batteries have a tendency to fail when left over the winter, I wish they would come up with a better system myself.
But it sounds like thats exactly what happened.
As long as your battery charger has a light indicating that the battery was charging or at least that the charger is working or you could test the output from the charger with a meter or a test light to be sure, I suspect the battery is bad.
They don't last very long for some reason with these Bosch Rotek units.
If you purchased the unit from a local store, they probably have a replacement battery you can get. Also many home improvement chain stores carry these batteries as well. If not please let me know and I will find a source for you for a new battery. This battery has a circuit inside that will fail and cause the battery to show fully dead when you try to use it if it detects an internal problem with the battery. And I'm sure that is what has happened, its there for as a safety device to prevent fire or explosion of the battery;-)
I will stick with you.
