Repairs at Voltec Maintenance

Plug Top Repairs

Power tools in harsh environments are subject to damage. In some cases, damaging the lead or the plug top to a certain extent can put the tool out of service. A small nick in the cord can lead to serious malfunction of your tool. In this circumstance, we perform a plug top replacement on the lead if enough cable is remaining to safely operate the tool. This service in the state of QLD can only be performed by a qualified electrician and subsequently requires testing after repair. We utilise quality consumables to perform your repairs and will have your tool looking new and loved again upon completion.

Lead Replacements – Power Tool Repairs

The lead plays a crucial role of carrying electricity to your tool and is often exposed to the elements which can easily be damaged. While the cable is covered in a protective coating, they are still one of the most vulnerable parts of your tool. Dragging cables along the ground, contact with sharp edges, heat, over flexing and being walked over can all cause damage to your lead. This type of damage leaves the tool out of service or faulty and most of the time cannot be identified with the naked eye. Hence, the importance of regular testing and tagging and power tool repairs is paramount for safety.

Internal Power Tool Repairs

Electrical connectors and elements inside the tool may come loose and adversely affect the tool from time to time. Replacement or repair of these items can be a make or break for the life of your tool.

Replacement of internal brushes – Lek Tek

One area of your power tool that can often cause problems are the internal brushes. In many instances, internal brushes wear out before the tool does. An indication of wear down is when you may notice performance issues with your power tool. By actively maintaining your power tools, it will make it easier to notice the signs early and allow you to get them replaced quickly. This will also prevent further damage to your motor and your power tool. Additionally, replacement of old brushes will greatly enhance the performance of your tools.
