Fein Multimaster not oscillating

Hi Seanfin, Following on from a previous thread. I have a Multimaster that does not oscillate because one of the two arms in which the armature bearing rotates within are broken off. Any idea how you replace that part? Does it come through the whole vacated by the bearing once the circlip is removed and the bearing extracted? No warranty issues here and the local Fein agent has declined the repair . In for a penny in for a pound (i am in the UK). Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Can't resit a challenge.
Any inputs gratefully received.
Cheers
Kevin in London.

Hi yes if you remove the gearbox from the armature housing then strip the cutter shaft from the gearbox by the circlip and bearing then the fork will fall out.
Have a look at this web www.fein.de/fein-multimaster/au/en/download/index.html
and follow link to the diagram of your machine may be helpfull.
Thanks. Sean.

The rotary speed dial in my Fein MultiMaster slips caused by the vibration when the tool is turned on. Is there a way to tighten it?


No way of tightening its a variable resistor molded in to Electronics. Would try get a warranty replacement if its close to any of the warranties they offer. Its One year normal or Three years free extended World Wide Warranty. Would recommend anyone buying FEIN to extend it free within four weeks of purchase.

A defect armature that happends oft by this tool multimaster there was a little serie of this 250 watt budget machines that have hiddens defects in the armature if you look at that part then you see not a burned field or armature but the tool becomes very hot to hold in your hands. if you are by a service dealer he can confirm the problem that in most cases not was your fault because if its not burned , but when its burned then replace BOTH the electric field and the armature if you can become that cheap , most times this budget tool is not to expensive to get new. but in that case the 350Watt tool little difference but more to do with.

Won't turn on


After trying the obvious, my first guess is always the trigger. Go to eReplacementParts.com to find schematics and order parts as well as instructions for replacing the trigger.

Fein multimaster repair shops/centers????


Wow, I don't have a multimaster but I want one. I know they make two kinds. One that's 700.00 dollars and one that you can get at the hardware store. I'm beginning to think there might be a problem with the switches in this thing. Go to eReplacementParts.com and view the schematics to order a new switch.

Fein multimaster sanding attachment broken


Pretty sure things like that are considered expendable. Pat yourself on the back for getting so much sanding done and buy a new one.
