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!).

    thanks! it works perfect! I've replaced the capacitor 220uF 25V with 220uF 63V. Now it doesn't get too hot while charging.

    Same thing. The charger rectifier cap 220 uF was dead, replaced, all works. Thanks a lot !

    I hadn't a 220uF/25v cap at hand, so I replaced it with a 220uF/16V one. The old one was fried and now charger works again. Hopefully it will stand a few charging cycles! By the way, how could this circuit be improved now that the problem is spotted? Thank you!

I would contact and talk to their tech department about a warranty repair for this tool.

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.

Why does my Dremel run for 1 sec. then switches off If I knock against te side it runs 1 sec before cutting out off

sounds if your tool has a loose or broken brush this is a small carbon object inside that makes motor run, dremel does sell replacement brushes for most of what they mfg. look where ever real dremel bits and tools are sold ck package back to see if your model number is serviced by this brush pack

Dremel stylus 1100 (No Charger)

First you need to get an equivalent charger and some type of male/female or contact harness. This will have to have at least three pins as that is what is already on the Dremel. Now the difficult decision, do you want to open up the Dremel if it's still under warranty? If you don't mind opening it then my solution will work. Open up the Dremel and look at the inside of the contacts. As this is a DC charger it can only have positive and negative terminals. You say there are three contacts, so there will either be two positive and one negative or two negative and one positive. Most likely there will be a bridge wire between the two terminals with the same polarity. Strip a little of the insulation from the terminal wires and solder new leads to your contact harness. Noting the polarity of each pin/contact on the new harness wire the other part of the contact harness to the charger. You will most likely have to make a small hole in the Dremel's outer cover to allow the wires to pass through. As you own a Dremel I'm sure you are capable of attempting this easy bit of DIY. There is only one problem, If the third contact plate is a return signal to the charging base it might be to inform the charger when the battery is full. In this case the terminals inside the Dremel will not be bridged and I suggest you buy a new or secondhand charger. Hope this helps

Dremel 1100 for in a few seconds

Change the capacitor 220uF 25V and it will charge properly again (at least that is the result I got and several others here at FixYa).

Easy to do and cheap (component around 0,2 Euros) work about 2 min,.

Hi leigh abear...
I will send you to the dremel website where you can watch a video on the dremel model 1100 and it will explain how to use it and change bits,cutters,ect.
Do change your bit without going to the website push down on the large button on top to lock the tool, and then you wil loosen the bit holder bu turning it anticlockwise to loosen the grip on the tool you have in the bit holder.

Dremel Stylus only charges for 2-3 minutes then stops

This is the charger, its getting a reading from the battery that its charged when it isn't. I don't know exactly how that charger is wired but, to be suroe it is the charger, as I have had similar problems beforehand.

My relatively new stylus runs for a short while and then turns itself off! Any small restence on the tip while in use also seems to turn it off. Please tell me what the possible cause is.

Battery is flat or has a problem, the dremel does monitor voltage/current and shutdown to prevent battery damage, failure or fire. First step is to ensure the charge is working properly.

My Dremel tool has intermittent power.

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.
