Stihl BR 420C

The other day I was blowing snow off the sidewalk with my BR420 and was getting a little wet. All the sudden I got a really powerful shock from the throttle trigger. I was wearing ski gloves and it melted a tiny hole in them. I turned the blower off an waited for a couple minutes and fired it back up. To begin with, it was fine but as soon as it got damp, it shocked me again; only not as bad as the first time. Has anyone else experienced this and is there anything I can do to prevent it? thanks

First I've ever heard of a Stihl shocking someone. Open up the handle and see what's wrong with it.
