Question about Dremel 300 1/40A "Multi Pro" Rotary Tool Kit

1 Answer

I have a Dremel model 395T6 (F013 0395 04). The other day I was using it to cut plastic. It worked fine and was turned off during operation. When turned back on for the same operation there was no sign of power. I confirmed the power souce to be ok. I examined both brushes and they both looked fine with no chips and substantial material remaining. I suspect the switch assembly. What do you recommend. Is there any volt meeter tests to apply to the switch?

Well, yes you can measure the switch, look for continuity. I suspect something else is wrong, some models had armature issues. Measure the coils and armature for continuity.

How do I fix a Dremel 4200

I just came across this problem and could not find help online. Dremel wants me to send it to them. Their turn around time is 3 days but that doesn't count the 4 day ship to time nor the 4 day day ship back time.

I cut it off with another super cheap dremel type tool. I would have used a sander or bench grinder if necessary.

After I grinder down to just see the threads I put a flat head screwdriver in and pried it loose and then it twisted off easily.

I then realized what cause it. The plastic housing threads had slightly melted to the metal threads. Dremel bits get hot! The heat works it way to the shafts which in turn works it's way into the plastic.

The dremel can be used without this housing if you completely destroy it. I'm sure you will get by fine since you probably wanted to put an accessory on anyway. You can probably order a replacement in the meantime.

Most of our issues with Dremel tools is with the plastic brush holder. If the tool is used for exetnded periods of time or 'leaned' on too much the holder will get hot enough melt and keep the brushes from contacting the armature properly. Try taking your brushes out, if they don't slide in and out of the holder freely you may need to file or cut away any plastic that is holding the brushes off the armature. This may require you taking the brush holder out so you don't damage the armature. Be careful with the brush holder, it is not available as a replacement part.

How do you attach "multipurpose cutting kit model 565" to the dremel multipro model 395?

Remove the collet nut and collet then unscrew the sealing cap (black plastic ring), this has the same thread as the inner of the multi kit tool, so just screw on the tool then replace the collet and nut

Dremel repair: The motor spins but the tool does not turn.

I use heat shrink and found one that was larger and cut it down to less than an inch. I heated it with a lighter enough to fit the same size over it. and then heated that one enough to slip inside. I did one more so I ended up with 3 of the same heat shrink tubing (pink) and covered over both of the shafts and heated the whole thing so they all sealed and made a connecting shaft. In a pinch it worked well and never had a problem. there is a picture attached.

Dremel 395 won't turn on. Was working fine last time I used it, now it is dead. Almost like the it's not getting power, but I have ruled that out.

I have a Dremel 395 Type 3. Motor works fine, shaft doesn't turn. Took it apart to find that the white plastic or nylon flex coupling on the shaft had crumbled and the spline driver, which fits directly over the motor end of the shaft was somewhat worn. I emailed Dremel and got an overnight reply listing the 2 parts I need and the cost: Coupling is $1.00 and the driver is $1.25. Placed order by phone: 1-800-437-3635. I ordered 2 of each in case future replacement is needed. Total bill came to $7.27 including Florida tax and shipping. Can't beat that. They said it would be in the mail by tonight. (Flex coupling number is 2615294309; spline driver is 2615294308.)
