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
try installing a new set of brushes in it i have fixed mine lots of times by doing just this !!! new brushes are sold where ever real dremel tools and bits are sold ck package back for your model number
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.
Either side of the body are two round plastic caps with a slot in under these are a spring attached to the brush, what you need to do is unscrew the cap with a small screwdriver or the end of the collet nut spanner, and withdraw the spring and carbon brush, check the length of the brush and replace if worn down, replace the brush cap and run the tool without load for five minutes to bed the new brushes in. (if the brushes are ok make sure you replace them in the same orientation as removed).
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.
I assume you mean something like a Dremel high speed rotary tool with various bits. Here are some general guidelines....
You can divide the bits into three groups - cutting, grinding, and polishing.
The cutting tools will have the largest (relatively) teeth, some look like little gears. These are suitable for fairly soft materials like wood and plastic, and maybe drywall. They are useful for carving.
The grinding tools are either small stones (these are very hard, not rubber) or they have a fine coating of diamonds glued to a metal surface. Both are used for grinding hard stuff like metal, ceramics or glass. The diamond coated ones can grind very hard materials. The stone ones can wear down, but remain usable. Grinding is handy for sharpening and for removing small amounts of metal to shape it - but this is a pretty slow process. You can also etch glass by grinding it, but be sure to keep a little water on the glass or the local heating of the glass will break it.
The polishing tools are hard rubber or fabric or little wire brushes. These are good for polishing things, mostly metal. I find the little wire brush bits very useful for cleaning up corroded contacts in flashlights and other battery-operated devices.
Be sure to wear safety glasses with any of these bits, but especially the wire brushes as they tend to throw out those little wires!
Let me know if you would like any more help. Thanks for using Fixya, and good luck.
You have an open spot in the switch. You will need to replace the variable speed switch. The part number is 2610925722 and the manual for the tool says it is $14.00. (Though this may have changed since the manual was printed) Unfortunately the switch is unavailable according to Bosch. You may be able to pick one up on ebay. Good Luck.
I went to Dremel.com and found a parts explosion for this tool and the shunt appears to be connected to the brush holder. It is a little fuzzy on the print. If you go to their site they have a toll free number that you can talk with a tech and they will be glad to help. If I have helped you with the problem would you please rate this response accordingly and thank you.
