My reliable Bosch angle grinder GWS660 stopped on me

Customer Question

Hello, my reliable Bosch angle grinder GWS660 stopped on me yesterday and caused my electricity to trip.. Is it worth putting in for repair?
JA: When did you last clean or perform maintenance on your Bosch angle grinder? How old is it?
Customer: Never. It is probably 5 years or more old
JA: How long has this been going on with your Bosch angle grinder? What have you tried so far?
Customer: This is the first time it has failed and I only use it intermittently for small cutting jobs
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: No except that the fault on little used professional grinder surprised me. Not what I expect from Bosch

Hello, I do not think it will be worth the trouble having it repaired. The main cause of this equipment to trip is a burnt winding. Usually, the armature that rotates about 3,600 rpm is not worth rewinding. The cost of repair will surely be more than the cost for a new unit.
