Customer Question

Hi. My alb 36 LI garden blower will not turn on. The battery is fully charged and engaged (I tested it with my Bosch stunner). The switch clicks around but there is no power. It worked fine last weekend.
JA: Do you know the model of your Bosch appliance? How old is it?
Customer: Alb 36 LI 3 600 HAQ 400. It’s probably 4 or 5 years old
JA: How long has this been going on with your Bosch appliance? What have you tried so far?
Customer: just today. It worked fine last weekend. I’ve checked the battery (it’s fully charged and fully engaged). I also checked the battery was working on my Bosch strimer
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: the starter switch itself has begone more stiff to roll over the years but that hasn’t prevented it from working so far
