Do you mean a capacitor? Is it the charger or is it the battery? The capacitor are plain types can be found at any electronic parts store. I think the main one is 220uf. Be sure an check each for problems.
Take it back to the store, explain your problem. Like as not, they will exchange it. My experience with this tool tells me that it is a noisy unit. Depending on the material you are working and the stylus you are using, the noise will change.
THIS SEEMS TO BE A MAJOR PROBLEM FOR DREMEL AND I AM SORRY BUT I HAVENT A SOLUTION (NEITHER HAS DREMEL). I AM A DOMICILLARY CHIROPODIST AND FOUND THIS ITEM ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC FOR MY WORK...ORIGINALLY I RETURNED MY FIRST ONE WITH A COMPLAINT AND IT WAS REPLACED WITHOUT QUASTION ..HOWEVER IT HAS HAPPENED AGAIN AND MY ONLY SOLUTION IS TO ALWAYS CARRY TWO FOR BACKUP..WHEN I RECHARGE AT NIGHT THOUGH IT ONLY PARTIALLY RECHARGES BEFORE CUTTING OFF LOOKS LIKE I SHALL HAVE TO CARRY THREE......
Change the capacitor 220uF and it will most certainly work again. I got the idea from FixYa and it solved my problem! Easy to change just 2 soldering points and a component costing around 0,2 Euros. If you do not know how to operate a soldering tool ask someone for a quick assistance. The switch takes around 2 min (1,5 min to open the charger and 0,5 min to change the component!).
You can go to any repair facility and buy a replacement cord making sure of the wire guage and conductor (2 or 3) what you can do is make a wiring diagram and remove the old cord and holding the cord about 10 inches from end pull one wire at a time and if there is a break it will pull out to confirm your suspicion. Let me know if you need any more help and if I have answered your request would you please rate this response accordingly and thank you.
its probably broken, but you could just add a foot operated switch from a hardware store which costs about 4$, which is cheaper than replacing the switch and easier to turn off and on while using the tool.
