Bosch GSB 18 drill left outside in the rain.

Recommended Posts


I have a Bosch GSB 18 drill that I got used. No warranty. I was working outside and stupidly left the drill in the mist outside. Next day I tried operating it again and the drill was not working. It did not even make a sound. I have since took apart the plastic enclosure of the drill and dried it. After that I tried it with a different fully charged battery that worked on a different tool just the other day. Result was the same. The drill does not even make a sound.


I am looking for any suggestions on what might be the fault and what I can do to get my drill back in working order. I can provide more details and pictures if needed.

Welcome to the forum.


Don't leave your tools out in the rain...


The cordless Bosch GSB drill looks to be a nice tool.


My guess is one of the circuit boards now has a failed component, as-shown in this parts listing. If ordering replacement parts, then ensure the model and version numbers are correct.


Use a meter to verify power in when the trigger is squeezed and no power out.
