Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. First off you did not mention the age of this tool which would have been quite helpful in my response.

I looked up your parts here:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Craftsman-Parts/Rotary-tool-Parts/Model-572610530/0247/0741520/10043672/00001?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=572610530

You should inspect the brushes (item 11) for wear or broken springs. From what I can tell this particular model has been in the retail market place for at least 10 years. This would lead me to believe that the brushes are suspect. The brushes can be removed by unscrewing the opposing "screwdriver slotted" plastic caps on the outside of the tool and then carefully lift them out for inspection.
Use a flashlight and inspect the armature where the brushes come into contact. It should be shiny copper colored and not dark or black.

I also note that the switch has 5 speeds. Since it does not work on any speed... I doubt the switch has failed.

I was using my friends Craftsman Rotary tool to shave down a metal door jamb and it got hot so i shut it off. Turned it back on for a second, and has not worked since. It's been 3 days. Is there a way...


You probably burned up the brushes.You can take it to Sears and have them send it in to have them replaced, but in the long run it will be cheaper and a lot faster to buy a new one. Rotary tools are not made to take a lot of stress. Besides your friend will see how much of a nice guy you are and how honest you are and won't be afraid to lend you tools in the future.

Compressor UP6 25 125, runs all the time but is only under load for a short time, should it shut down between loads?


This unit will shut down if unloaded for a set period of time. Usually 5 to 10 minutes. This time could be longer if some one has changed it from the factory setting. There is a timer in the control box that starts counting down when the unit unloads. If it stays unloaded long enough for the timer to count down the unit will stop until the air pressure drops to the low set point on the pressure switch. It will then start up. If the unit loads before the counter counts down the timer starts from the beginning when it unloads again. This cycle continues until you manually shut it down or you stop using air long enough for the timer to reach Zero and shut down.

it failed. there is no rhyme or reason. Even a new anything can break at anytime. If it doesnt turn on after it cooled down no use fixing it.
