Occasionally the power cord sockets on Festool units wear out. Unless there is a good connection between tool and cord, the connection arcs, carbonizes, and slowly burns out over time. This can be prevented by ensuring that every time you connect a cord, you turn it a complete 90° so it is totally connected. The reality is that, especially when in the middle of a job, sometimes we don't turn it all the way, and eventually the socket gets fried. But the problem also effects the cords: if the plug end of a cord isn't totally connected, it will start to arc and burn out just like the socket. Even worse, when you then connect the burned cord to other tools, you won't be able to get a proper connection, and the connection on the new tool will begin to degrade.

The solution is simple. If the socket on your tool is black and burned out, replace it, and replace any cords that show arcing too. The actual replacement takes ca. five minutes - if you bring the tool to the shop, we will make the repair at no extra charge (you can also change the socket yourself pretty easily). We stock sockets for most of the Festool tools, and replacement cords are also listed on this page.

Note: We almost only see this issue on tools that get very heavy use.
