New Makita grinder blew up????


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I own a 125mm Makita grinder (GA5030R) . Got it 2 or 3 months ago.

I was using it with a wire brush, it heated up and stopped working.

It works but slowly and makes weird noises, smells a bit like burnt something.

What happened? Is this supposed to happen?

I got a Makita thinking I was buying something better than the cheap stuff you buy in supermarkets.

Thanks for any help
