I dont think it should get that hot. Dremel has a program for the 225 Flex Shaft and for 17.90 they will exchange it for you. Send it to DREMEL 4631 E. Sunny Dunes Rd. Palm Springs, CA 92264. Their phone number is 1-800-275-2052. Hope this helps. Dave

That could cause a problem not allowing the brushes to seat properly. Does it arc excessively? If so you might need a new armature. Also while you had it apart did you check the bearings for being rough or tight?

Try using a tapered wood screw or sheet metal screw as an extractor. Choose one of a size that will let its tip go down into the broken collet and get a grip when you twist it. If that fails, you might use a screw extraction tool.

On my rotary tool the white wire goes on the left if pointed away from me. Hope this helps. Mamabear

clean the slots that hold the brushes, sometimes they get cloged and the springs do not push the brushes all the way to the armeture.

Do you have a 'nut' on the end, or just a wide open shaft (1/3 inch or so?)
You need a collet nut to tighten bits, and maybe collets of varying sizes also (not sure about this particular shaft).

there is a screw at the tip of the dremel, take it out and it is pretty basic after that

I have exactly the same unit a 395. The kit comes w/ a wrench to unscrew the nut holding whatever you have locked in. If you can't find the wrench then I suggest you get an adjustable wrench and lock it into the flat side of the nut. There is a place where it will lock in so that you can tighten or loosen the nut. Some of the 395's come as a kit w/ all the different attachments, accessories, heads and tools. If it came with a plastic case the wrench is usually slotted running parallel just in front of the handle. You will see it when you open the case and take a top view look at the handle. It is sometime hard to see but it's just there. Good luck.

Definitely not Home Depot. Try googling 'dremel model 395 switch', you'll probably come up with something. If not, there's always dremel themselves. This is a current model so there shouldn't be any real problem getting parts.
Sorry, don't know about installation, but I can tell you most of these dremels are real easy to fix in general, not complicated at all.

On either side of the switch is a black disk with a notch small enough for a small screwdriver. Unscrew it and take it off to expose the spring. Gently pull the spring out and the brush should be attached. If you encounter resistance, then you may disconnect the spring from the brush. If this happens then push the spring back in and hope you catch the brush; if this does not work, then get creative or take the whole thing apart to get to it. After that, just put the new brushes in and recap.

Unplug it, then while pushing in the little silver button near the head use a wrench on the hex nut and turn counter clockwise about a 1/2 turn. Push the bit in, then pull it out (that releases the little fingers that hold it).

The silver button locks the head so it won't spin while you are changing bits. Always be sure it is released before plugging in or turning on the power.

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.

You need a # 402 bit. This comes with a screw on top that detaches and goes through the hole in the cutting wheel (very small hole). Then just re-attach it to the bit and you're in business. Depending on the particular cut-off wheel you're using, the wheel can be extremely fragile. Even though it will cut steel, it is brittle. ALWAYS wear safety glasses when using a cut-off wheel particularly, they will inevitably shatter and go flying!
Probably best to go to a local hobby store, buy a few bits for $10, and pick the owners brain about the tool.

Depends on the head you have on the tool. If it takes collets, you need to match the collet size to the shaft on the bit. There are I believe 4 different collet sizes.

You have the threaded shaft which is hollow and connected to the tool. then you put the proper sized collet inside that shaft and half of it will stick out. This is what actually holds the bit. Next, you put the 'nut' on the shaft, but don't tighten it yet. Put the bit into the hole in the nut as far as it willl go, then back it out about 1/8 inch. Now you can tighten the nut by holding down the button on the front of the tool until the nut does't turn any more. You can buy a 'nut' that works with any bit, no collets used, for about $10. Home depot, Lowes etc or online.

If you're not sure what I'm talking about, you can probably find pics of collets etc. by going to google images.
It would probably pay to contact Dremel or look online for the manual also.
