Question about Dremel Variable - Speed Multipro Rotary Tool 395

1 Answer

Dremel model 395, Type 5

Was using this tool to help my son make his pinewood derby car.  Appears that I 'burnt it out', though don't ask me how I overused it (was just sanding balsa wood).  
the unit just stopped working and quit.  thought there might have been some internal fuse or heat sensor that automatically shut it off ... didn't appear to be one.
have read other people's descriptions and 'popped the hood' on it to see if  I could spot anything amiss.  aside from a little fine sawdust, nothing.  I put a vaccuum attachment to it, just to make sure sawdust wasn't preventing electrical contact, then reassembled.
got nothing ... not even a click.
thought my problem might be "brushes", per other people's descriptions, but don't know what brushes look like.
Suggestions?

Brushes are usually conducting carbon sticks at one end of the rotator (spiny bit in middle of motor) there will be two (opposite each other) connecting to the commutator (round copper looking ring with slits in it). The brushes will each have a spring that pushes them onto the commutator and a wire to carry the electricity to the brush.

As the rotator spins, the brushes connect to different coils via the commutator. This allows the electricity to energize the next set of coils to make the motor spin more.

If the motor gets very hot the brushes can stick in their housing and loose contact.
My Dremels (and type) all have the motor cooling exhausts and intakes where you need to hold them. It is quite hard to not block them during use..
I would also get hold of a multi-meter or continuity checker and check that the lead into the motor has not broken inside. Another common problem.

Hi, Tage and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.

Hi,i can't open the trunk of my lexus es300,it doesn't have a remote key when i bought it and the trunk button doesn't ,the over-ride switch in the glove box doesn't work as well,what should i do?thanks


Hi, W/D here.
I'm not really familiar with your car, but I thought that I should offer this up as a Good Samaritan....
If your rear seat(s) will flip down, do so and open the trunk from the inside. Then determine why the over ride switch isn't working. The trunk button should be worked manually when you get the trunk open. Lubricate the lock and locking mechanisms with graphite, and not oil. You can get graphite at Lowe's, H/Depot or similar, in the lock dept. You can also get it at craft supply stores (Hobby Lobby). They sell it there for the Cub Scouts "Pinewood Derby" race cars.
Hope that this helped a little, --W/D--
