Laser diodes are no like light bulbs. When a light bulb burns out, it goes black. When a laser diode burns out, it goes to an extreme low power state. You can see red at the source, but there is no beam to speak of. If this is what you're seeing, then contact Dewalt. They are low quality instruments, but will try there best to get you a new one, at a reasonable price.

This is one of the cheeper lasers and is designed for predominantly indoor use this Dewalt DW087K unit has a visibility range of 14 yards. Although from experience they do drain the batteries quicker than you would think and cause the laser to be hard to see as well. Hope it works for you!!

Why does my horizontal line arch on my Dewalt model DW087 ???

An arc, as in low on both extreme's and high in the middle, would be caused by a deformity in the lens or protect glass.
If you mean low on one side, and high on the other, than it's a calibration issue.
Either way, these are not repairable units, and you should contact Dewalt and they will likely tell you how to go about getting a replacement.

How do I check if my dewalt spinning laser is accurate?

Set it up and shoot 4 level points around the laser . Like at 12 -3-6and 9 o clock. Move the laser 15 or 20 ft from where it is now and re-shoot those 4 points again .if they don't read level then your laser needs calibrated

The off level light doesn't turn off therefore doesn't level at all,

Your vial and compensator no longer match up. Move the foot screws until you can get your laser to spin, then adjust your leveling vial until it reads level again, using the 3 screws holding the vial inplace.

Laser is level but out of level light blinks and will not spin

Your compensator and leveling vial are no longer aligned. Use your foot screws to find a place where the laser spins, then use the 3 hex head screws on the vial, to adjust it to read level.

My beam on laser not very visible and being picked up n sensoe to staff

Does changing the battery make a difference in the signal strength? With my Dewalt, I have to change batteries frequently and also clean the battery connections with a soft eraser to keep a strong beam.

One of the reasons, I went with the Dewalt versus the Spectra, I was told that battery life was better in the Dewalt.

Dewalt laser dw087 is blinking and cannot self level anymore (I assume)

this unit does not have any replaceable parts, if the unis is covered by warranty, it would be exchange, if not then check with your local servicenter the max rate program to do so.
