Bosch PBH240RE SDS Hammer Drill. Sparks and trips out RCD

Customer Question

Bosch PBH240RE SDS Hammer Drill. Sparks and trips out RCD when trying to use

This suggests you have a short on the drill resulting in a spark.

This is most likely to be an uneconomical repair as its probably the field coil marked as item 2 here, but now obsolete.

Strip the drill down and locate where the spark is being generated from, if its from the coil, invest in a new drill. If its not the coil but the switch you can then order the above using the link above for a few pounds.

Let me know how you get on, and if you need any further assistance.
