Got this from a different post
dremeluser (1/23/2010)
My 395 stopped working.  I took the unit apart, cleaned all the components, replaced the brushes.  It still didn't work.  I then checked continuity between the various contact points.  All were fine except one side of the stator in the motor.  Looking closely, there was a break in the wire as it leads from the stator (field assembly) to the switch section contact.  I put a dab of solder to reconnect the break and it runs like a charm now.  (If the break weren't visible/accessible, the field assembly (stator) can be purchased for about $7 plus $4 shipping.

I think I may have a similar problem with my 395.  It quit working the other day so I took it apart, looked everything over, cleaned it and put it back together but it still didn't work.  I took it back apart and checked continuity on everything I could think of.  When I checked the stator (field assembly) one of the two windings had 6 ohms but the other one did not have continuity thru it.  I assume this is my problem but the customer service lady at dremel could not tell me one way or the other.  I don't want to send it in to them, I just want to order the part I need and replace it.  The switch and the brushes seem to be ok.  The brushes are over 1/4" long and do not appear to be pitted or grooved bad.

The switch has continuity thru it.  With the switch in the off-position, the wide terminal has continuity thru the switch to the bottom terminal coming out of the switch on the side with the white wire.  With the switch in the on-position, the narrow terminal on the plug end has continuity thru the switch to the top terminal coming out of the switch on the side with the black wire.  Does anyone know if this is right?  Thanks for any help.

Yep, that's what it was.  I got my parts in today and installed the new feild assembly and it's back up and running.  I checked the ohms on it first and it checked 5.9 on both windings.
