    For PEOPLE WHO WILL HAVE a longer FESTOOL life of the machine who are having a QUICKLOCK cable the problem is the poor connection of the 2 pins that will bring soon damage on the coil (field) the coil ,

    order 492780 and make normal class 2 a 1.0 kwdrt cable on the machine it is made the machines longer lasting because of the poor quicklock wenn the tools daily are switched on 1 cable is this the ultimate repair because of the short circuiting inside the quicklock connectorblock and quicklock cable Milwaukee and AEG are much better on the quicklock cable but the Festool powertools are much better to work with.

Its possible that the mains lead is breaking down, when it stops give the cable a wiggle and see if it starts up again, if it does then just replace mains lead

Makita troubleshooting

The BDF452HW has a carbon brush motor - and they do eat up brushes quickly. The brush set number is CB440 - they are replaceable by removing the 2 screws on the rear cap, the connectors snap over the brush holder - take care not to bend the brush holders when changing, they are just thin brass.
If the tool is 'ticking' or 'grinding' when it spins check the condition of the armature before you install new brushes - the copper commutator should not look burnt or have raised segments - this is also a common repair on this tool. Replacing the armature is a fairly inexpensive and easy fix - you must split the entire clamshell housing to access this - be sure to fit all the components securely back into their slots or you may tear all the fan blades off the armature when you try and run it.

Location of brushes on dremel multi max kit

There should be a second brush. Look along the motor - you're looking for a spot where the armature (the part that rotates) is surrounded by a ring of little straight copper-colored bars. That's the "commutator" section. The brushes run against the copper bars.

Look on the outside of the plastic shell - there may be two large plastic screws, one on the outside of each shell half, right about where the commutator would be on the inside. Those are your brush holder screws; you should be able to change the brushes from OUTSIDE the tool without opening it. Some tools are built without external brush holders like that, but most have external brush holders.

If you find external brush holder screws, then track down the second brush and set it aside. It MAY be hanging from the brush holder in one of the shell halves. Unscrew both brush holders and remove them from the shell. Set them aside and reassemble the motor back into the shell. If the brushes are really short, like if they're nearly cube-shaped, then it's time to replace them. If not, try them again.

Insert one brush into each of the holes the brush holder screws came out of, and put the brush holder screws back in. Be careful not to cross-thread them. Try the tool.

If it still won't run, it's possible that an armature winding has given up the ghost and it's time to replace the tool...

Dremel 4200 stopped working

No.. the issue issue is the switch inside. when your Dremel 4200 stop working, press firmly the grey area between the speed selector and the brush housing. I think this a defect in the design of the 4200. 9f840401-fb84-4f7b-8c68-75a9be3ceb9e.jpg

My Dremel sijmply stopped working suddenly. Where do I begin? Brushes?

If you have a volt/ohms meter It is a process of elimination. First unplug tool and remove the brushes turn the switch on and check for continuity to the brush holders and if none work backwards start with the cord and then the switch etc until the problem is found.

Delta metal chopsaw one brush is arking bad saw has hardly been used brushes are like new

I can only think the connection is weak or intermittent, which would cause the arcing. Try to switch the brushes and see if the problem follows the brush. If it does, then pull on the spring to extend it a little more and widen the prongs which touch the brush holder. If the problem does not follow to the other brush holder, then it could be a damaged brush holder which is cracked or the spade connector is damaged.

My Bosch 1276 DVS belt sander abruptly stopped working. Could it be the switch?

that is possible, but was the tool operating properly first?? unplug tool and check the cord for any breaks, then what I would do is clean the tool as good as possible with compressed air and if you can remove the brush caps do so and check the condition of the spring and clean the area. DO NOT sand the brushes but look across the face to see if both look worn evenly. If you have a volt ohms meter check from the plug to the brush holder with the switch on brushes removed to see if you have continuity and if not then I would have to think the switch

Most of our issues with Dremel tools is with the plastic brush holder. If the tool is used for exetnded periods of time or 'leaned' on too much the holder will get hot enough melt and keep the brushes from contacting the armature properly. Try taking your brushes out, if they don't slide in and out of the holder freely you may need to file or cut away any plastic that is holding the brushes off the armature. This may require you taking the brush holder out so you don't damage the armature. Be careful with the brush holder, it is not available as a replacement part.
