SOURCE: Dremel motor dead.
absolutely astounding! Had my Dremmel for 10 years and abuse it and use it it has been wet and its out in the shed. Never had a days trouble.
Now when it was in the case was the case shut? My thoughts are mice piddle which if it gets inside will corrode everything. I say this because a bigger drill of mine got damaged in that way. No external signs of damage but when opened the damage was there and it could also be then smelled.
My only other thoughts on this is to get you to check the plug to see a wire has not pulled off, after that I would suspect the dremmel switch has a fault.
all shots in the dark! but have to start somewhere when you are riding blind.
Thanks for using FIXYA

Testimonial: "Great suggestions for a range of starters on troubleshooting this (would never have come up w\mouse turds!). Thank you!!"
Here's the email from I got from Dremel (in my case the flex coupling broke):
Inside the tool is a flex coupling and spline driver.
The flex coupling is # 2615294309 and the price is $ 1.25.
This is the hollow plastic sleeve about 1" long with grooves on the
inside, that goes between the motor shaft and the output shaft.
The spline driver is # 2615294308 at $ 1.00.
Spline driver sits on the direct end of the motor shaft. The flex
coupling sits over the spline driver. Spline driver is about 1/4",
hard plastic with grooves on the outside.
Total shipping for orders under $ 5.00 is $ 2.50. Orders over $
5.00 is $ 4.00.
I have provided ordering instructions below.

You are right,it will need a slider switch replacement,But first-is it still under warranty?If it is call the costumer support on their 1-800 ...number.If not you could DIY it.Opening the drill is not that hard and as long as you observe the proper orientation and where every wire is connected to,you will be able to disassemble the unit.Inside you could see where the slider switch is connected and how it is positioned.Usually the surface of the switch is burned out and this you have to replace.The next problem is locate the part number it is usually found printed under the slider part.And the next big thing is to order the part and where to order it.Consult the user manual that came with Dremel unit and the ordering address is there.
