Question about Dremel Variable - Speed Multipro Rotary Tool 395

1 Answer

My Dremel 395 type 1 runs fine...if the slide selector switch happens to make a positive electrical connection. This can happen on any one of the selection positions...or it cannot happen...very tempormental...not at all reliable! Is this a "brush" problem, or is this a "switch" problem? Really like the tool, but it must be dependable at any of the offered speed positions.

    Thanks, wireguy212. I need to ask if a replacement speed switch is available. If so, at what price, and how do I go about ordering one? rbdnc@comporium.net

    Wireguy212: Thanks for your comment that you believe my problem lies in the speed switch. Do you know if a replacement switch is available, and at what price? If so, how do I go about ordering one?

The problem lies with the speed switch,if the brushes are bad the motor will never run at any speed.

    Sorry it took so long to respond to your comment but i am not getting any e-mails from this site,so unless i am scrolling through my e-mails from my provider i don,t get any notification of incoming mail.Any store that sells dremel tools should be able to supply you with the parts that you need,Canadian tire,Walmart,Home Depot are a few that sell that product,you may want to start there.

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.

My Dremel 395 type 4 does not run until I spin the chuck and then only runs at high speed.


Sounds like a switch or brushes. You can go to Dremel.com and they have a toll free number for their tech services and you can also download a breakdown for this tool.

I own a Dremel model 395 type 5 variable speed and it suddenly stopped working. I was wondering if it was common for the switches to go bad or if it's known for other parts to cause it not to turn on.


I would recommend going to Dremel.com and asking their tech section about this. I have one also and mine works fine other than a small amount of heat at the spindle area.
