Dremel 398 is dead as a Dodo.

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

Dremel while runnibg cuts out if i wiggle the case or touch the brush cover it starts back up.


Hi it sounds like you have a brush worn out. I would change out the brushes first and go from there. Brushes are relatively cheap and it is a good investment to check out first. You can get brushes from almost any hardware store that sells Dremel parts and accessories.

3981dremel I can not find out how to change the brushes or fit them. Where can I have this service carried out in bedfordshire n


you can change the brushes by opening the two little doors one on the top and one underneath the tool and the brushes will just fall out. you can then pop the new brushes in and replace the little doors. if you are looking for where to bye the brushes then just go on ebay or bye from dremel direct. im not sure how much dremel want for the brushes but i paid £7.58 on ebay.
i hope this has helped.

Unit wont run at all, yes I do have power, took apart and 1 of the brushes was stuck in slot and it looks like its been really hot.do I need to replace the switch assy. dremel 395 type 4,


I would think that just the brushes, they should slide freely in the slot. check also the condition of the armature for arcing or raised commutator bars.

New dremel 4000 used very little is missing the brushes and whatever else goes in the brush hole. found the cap laying on the table with no other parts. what do I need to replace???


Dremel has all their replacement parts right on the shelf at walmart, brushes, caps, chucks, the works. You found the cap, the brush is a little carbon square attached to a wire with a spring on it. Real simple. Buy a pair and get it fixed up. My favorite tool.

Do Dremel 4000 tools overheat and stop running? Is there a reset switch?


On a 4000 there is a thermal fuse at the base of the motor from the brush housing. They are cheap to replace. these are replacing fuses on alot of electronic devices. the fuse is a microtemp g7f01 110c.

Dremel 400 xpr stopped working. checked brushes looked ok but replaced with new ones. still not working. tool is still fairly new with only light to medium use.


It could be the fuse between the brush and variable speed control switch. I have the same problem and found the fuse blown. I am hoping that I can replace the fuse without having to buy the complete speed control unit which is about $17.00 from Dremel. If yours is still under warranty you could send it back. If I can find a fuse for mine I will let you know where to get them. joatmontag
