Question about Bosch RotoZip Spiral Saw RZ10 - 2100

Open Question

The shaft lock on my Rotozip RZ5 is locked and stuck.

The shaft lock was being difficult to get unlocked but it finally did so. I noticed it sounded loose but got the unit ready to some routing. Then while I was using it, the shaft lock fell out of the unit. I put it back in and now it is completely stuck. I see someone else had this issue and the recommendation was to "split the housing". How do you do that? Before I came to this site, I had removed six screws on the housing but I couldn't see how to get into the unit afterwards. It looks like a solid casing (or am I wrong)?

Rotozip ZM3 Zipmate lock button is stuck in down slanted position. This is the 2nd one that this has happened. A home depot rental person took it apart and supposedly fixed it but when we tried it again,...

There appears to be a broken/ missing spring under the button that is causing the fault. Probably best to have a agent for the machine carry out the repair as a hire shop will only repair at the least possible cost.

I was cutting 1/4" wall tile. On the 3rd or 4th cut my rotozip RZ5 quit working. There is power at the outlet. The machine was pretty warm. Is there a fuse or thermal reset or do I need to send it in foer...

I have had similar problems in the past using my Roto-Zip on jobs. You may want to check the internal brushes in the machine have not been clogged with the dust from the ceramic tiles. The unit may have simply overheated from the stress of cutting the tile. This will also affect the brushes in the Roto-Zip. A can of compressed air may help clear any dust built up around the brushes. If they brushes are caked with to much dust, you may have to take the unit appart and manually clean the brushes. But, be careful because the brushes are spring loaded. Hope this information is helpful.

4x4 Manual locking hub stuck in "lock"

What I have done in the past when manual locking hubs were difficult, is have a friend get in the vehicle and slowly roll backwards while I attempted to unlock the hub.
