Angle grinder won't turn on after I dropped it.

I was using my angle grinder to work on a small project the other evening when I was startled and dropped the grinder off of my work bench. Now, when I try to use it, the grinder won’t turn on at all. I tried plugging it into several different outlets throughout my house and that doesn't seem to be the problem so I think it must be the grinder itself. Is there any way to fix this?

Your angle grinder may be making noise because it is overworked. Machines, like humans, don’t function well after heavy loads for prolonged periods of time. It is recommended that you allow the device to spin freely after a moderate amount of difficult work before resuming your project.

The angle grinder is fixable - visit the ‘overworking’ link on the troubleshooting page found here:
