Before You Send Us Your Tool
Please check below to see if you can save time and trouble-shoot the tool yourself.
- Issue: The tool runs intermittently.
If your tool is a corded rotary tool, check the brushes first. After 50 to 60 hours
of use the carbon motor brushes will likely need to be replaced. Unplug the tool,
open the brush caps and remove the carbon brushes from the holders. If there is
less than 1/8" of carbon left on either brush, they both should be replaced. Brushes
need to be replaced in pairs even if one brush is worn more than the other. Please
refer to your owner's manual for more information on motor brushes and replacement
If you have a cordless rotary tool, be sure the battery is inserted all the way
into the tool body and locked into place.
- Issue: The tool does not run at all.
Double check your electrical outlet by plugging a known working item (such as a
light or radio) into the outlet to test for electrical service.
- Issue: The tool seems "sluggish" or labors to achieve the desired speed.
Fine particles and sawdust can enter the tool causing it loss of performance. Unplug
the tool and "blow out" the tool using dry compressed air to clean out ventilation
openings and switch levers of foreign matter. Note: Do not attempt to clean by inserting
pointed objects through openings in the tool.
- Issue: Tool will not hold accessory securely in tool.
Determine that the collet matches the shank size of the accessory you are trying
to use. Dremel has four different size collets to accommodate different shank sizes.
Dremel also offers the Dremel Chuck that allows you to quickly change accessories
with different size shanks without the use of any collet.
Returning a Tool for Service
When shipping your corded rotary tool, please package the tool only (not the storage
case or accessories). When shipping your cordless tool, please include the tool,
battery and charger for a complete system analysis and repair. Package the returned
items to protect them in shipment and be sure to include a copy of your dated proof
of purchase, a written statement describing the problem you are having and your
name, address and daytime telephone number. Dremel recommends that the package be
properly insured against loss or accidental damage for which we cannot be responsible.
