Loose shaft lock button

The shaft lock button on this saw has too much play in it...I opened the tool open and I noticed the plastic hole that it fits in is slightly bored out on one side allowing the shaft to move and come free from the hole that it enters to lock the shaft...have tried a washer that might restrict movement, but this did not work. Any ideas on how to fix the problem? Thanks

SOURCE: Tool bogs down while drilling holes in concrete-as though it's binding up inside.

Depends what damage has been done to the motor. If the tool is still running but sparking you need to check what sort of sparks they are. Short fat blue sparks only going halfway round the commutator (brush end of motor/armature) then it is 90% probable that just your field coil assy is blown. If it is thinner, whitersparks going all the way around then it is the armature and possibly the field aswell. Another way to check is to remove the brushes via the covers on either side at teh bottom of the motor and check the contacting surface. If it is fairly shiney and polishe then there is little sparking and hopefully no cause for concern. If one or both is pitted and dull it has been sparking and burning. If one is shorter and darker than teh otehr this indicates a problem with the field coil. It isn't a massivly hard job to change the motor parts. If you need more advice let me know.

Hello Deepak,

You can definitely fix this yourself, but I'm not entirely sure from your description which part is "dropping off". It may be a simple fix where something needs to be clipped back into place or you may need to replace something. Please can you take a look at the images below and identify which part you are having trouble with.

Below is the back of the upper spray arm which clips on to the upper rack. It has a grey plastic cover behind which is a large white plastic washer / gasket. The washer simply slots in to the back of the spray arm and the grey cover clips in over the top.

Your description suggests the grey plastic cover and/or the white washer are dropping off. If the grey plastic cover is missing, it may have fallen into the bottom of the washer under the lower rack, in which case you should be able to find it and clip it back on. If it's missing or wont clip back on, you will need to replace the upper spray arm as the cover and washer are not available separately.

This is the water delivery tube which clips to the back wall of the washing compartment. There is a metal clip which secures the tube to the wall. The open hole and one of the spigots slot in to the two holes in the back of the upper spray arm above. The spigot used depends on which height setting the upper rack is on.

Basically, everything simply clips together. If nothing is broken, you should be able to fix this at no cost by simply clipping the offending part back into place.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance or help locating replacement parts, please let me know what needs to be replaced. Nearly all Bosch parts are available and in stock direct from Bosch.

Regards,
BElectric

Open bunker hill, batteries dead and lost keys. How do I open the safe?


There are a few thing that you may try.

1. Contact manufacturer and see if they can send replacements.
2. This is where it gets destructive. Depending on the type. If its a low end or small brand. There should be a plastic panel that the key pad and key slot are. Believe or not there is not a lot physical protection there. This is where the wires and key mechanisms are. With a few tools (Screw driver, Pliers and vise grips). First try to pull the bolt retracting nub off. Next. You should be able to remove/rip the plastic panel. You should see the locking mechanism and a hole where the wires pass throw. your goal is to disassemble/brake a way anything that is in your way. Your end goal is to be able to manipulate a solenoid/cylinder. This is what holds the bolts still. If possible use the nub to retract the bolt while holding the solenoid back.
3. Use a drill to drill big enough hole to fit a jig saw or a rip saw blade. Next begin to cut a hole big enough to get the stuff inside. good luck.

Circular saw locking bolt turns spindle


There is a button on the saw that holds the shaft still. Unplug the saw and put light pressure on this button while you slowly turn thr blade by hand. When it gets to the hole, the button will drop into the shaft. Keep it pressed down and unbolt the nut.

Bonet is stuck, put the key in turn it left and its not opening,


Look into the grill at the top you will find the bottom of 6 plastic screws, 4 you get two via the grill slots use a chisel and cut them off, Then one either end of the grill. Place the chisel between two plastic layers, gently lift , check and cut, one each end.
With a wiggle that's the top loose, There are two clips holding the bottom in place Put your fingers through the bottom slot in the grill, push down clip and greatly pull the grill, do both sides, It won't come right out but your aim to loosen it., The lock is held in place in a sleeve with a plastic clips each side, you have push the barrel with a suitable item, this is to push it out of the sleeve and out of its housing, It may need a tap!!
Gently wiggle and pull the grill off
Lock
The lock is a 'lock barrel along a shaft to a white plastic coupling' this fits in to the 'bonnet lock'
The security is at the coupling to bonnet lock in the form of a cross shaped plastic key
The key is fitted and held in place in the coupling, and when installed it's fitted in to the lock, and once it's in the lock part it will not come out, so therefore any jolt, pull, movement dislodges the plastic key from the coupling side and due to its design it will not slot back in so the lock barrel just rotates
To open you have to apply pressure on the shaft towards the left and into the coupling and turn the key in the lock barrel at the same time in a aim to get the coupling to catch the plastic key (take a few minutes) but it opens in the end if this is the fault, (alternatively remove the two bolts that hold the bonnet catch to the bonnet)
Once bonnet open remove the bonnet lock mechanism, then with draw the lock barrel, shaft, coupling, By looking in side you will understand regarding the cross key
Anyway you need to remove one of the catches from the side of the plastic key This way it will fit back in to coupling.
Reassemble

The "nub" on the shaft lock assembly (internal) has worn down and the assembly needs to be replaced.

If you feel competent to open your Dremel yourself (and it's not on warranty) then order the shaft lock assembly from Dremel (early 2011 price: $1.25, not sure how much postage & handling might be). After opening the tool you will find a metal ring and a small piece (the lock) which it holds in place around the shaft where the lock button is located. Remove the old pieces and replace with the new ones and reassemble the tool.

Otherwise you can send the tool to Dremel to be fixed.

Cannot find lock button to lock shaft to enable me to change blade on the Ryobi W660


There is no lock button on this model. Look for a hole just above the head or blade and insert something like a nail or allen wrench in the hole to lock the shaft.

How do you unlock the blade to use


Unplug the saw! Some saw have a blade locking button on the side of the motor. Others have a hole in the saw blade. Either push in the locking button or stick a ice pick into the saw hold to prevent the saw from turning. Use a open end wrench to remove the nut holding the blade to the shaft. Some nuts turn right to remove!

You should have a pin spanner wrench that fits into the holes on the lock down nut. Hold the shaft with a open end wrench that fits the flats on the shaft.
If you dont have the spanner wrench, use a drift punch to tap the lock down nut to loosen.

Dremel shaft lock spinning


Trying to fix a similar issue. The pin that gets pushed in by the button (and returned by the spring) seems to be fine. The hole in the rotating shaft that the pin fits into, however, is in the wrong place, so the pin never goes into the hole! All I need to do is somehow pull the whole front part of the shaft out about 1/16th of an inch, and it'd be fine. I just can't seem to budge it though. Any tricks, anyone?

This is a brief description But the cost to me was 45 minutes, £2 for a pack of plastic rivets / screws, and I cached my bumper with the chisel £5 for a touch up stick Total £7. Well worth the time and effort
