I just purchased a Dremel 4000 and I was running it to break in the brushes and I noticed that the output shaft was getting unusually hot (like 140F) for just running it without load. Has anyone else experienced this with theirs. Thanks for any replies.

Yeah, my 4000 gets a little hot also. No big deal. I agree with Doug about the heat. But, as Hannah said, if you are concerned you can check with customer support. If you do I would be interested in what they have to say.

I talked to customer service and they said that the temps that i was getting were not normal and that i should send in the unit so that they can asses the problem.

Hmmmmm, interesting. I did not measure my temps but I would like to hear how this turns out. By the way, thanks for letting us know the results of your contact with Dremel.

Thank god its not just mine. .. No 395 owner. He's talking so hot you can't touch it. 4 15. To 30 min and. That's after five min of run time. It be faster waiting for battery to charge on a cordless. And. my projects are takeing for ever . I got mine Xmas. The first cut I. Made was on a 1/8 pine dowl Making a later for a. Bird cage. It. Locked up sent it to factory. 3 weeks later. Got it. Back. The didn't even pad the return box and sent a 5 dollar attacment. I'd never need. Yaaaaaah. .. and no explination of what went rong or how to prevent it. Next cutting some aluminum. No handle. 5 , min work to 30 miniuts rest for my 4000. I'm so frustrated I'd use a hack saw during rest periods and. Its more productive and a cleaner cut. And u can year sumthing loose moving around in there and. Brushes look new I want my 400 back. My 300 died. Cutting hole in plastic .. Hmmm Mabe. Ill get money back and. Get a roto zip or black and Decker who I hate. Thanxs. Dreamel u blow

My 4000 just stopped.... No smoke but definitely hot. Is there no reset or fuse I can replace? If not then Dremel makes a pretty **** piece of equipment - especially at this price point.

I BOUGHT THE 4000 THE DAY THEY HIT THE MARKET. I USE IT DAILY WITH RUN TIMES OF 2 HOURS PLUS. NEVER HAD HEATING OR ANY OTHER PROBLEM. IT'S CONNECTED TO A FLEX SHAFT AND IS MOUNTED ABOUT A FOOT ABOVE MY HEAD. WITH SOME OF THE HEAVIER LOADS I PUT ON IT, I'VE THOUGHT IT SHOULD "SMOKE".

MAYBE YOUR HOLDING YOUR HAND ACROSS ONE OF THE VENTS AND DON'T RELIZE IT. TRY USING THE PISTOL GRIP, WHICH ALSO ATTACHES TO THE 10.8V CORDLESS.

SAFETY FIRST, NOW TURN ON THE TOOL

i got a 4000 for a christmas present. i also noticed that the end got hot. but i think part of the problem is running it at to low a speed for the load. i was doing some cutting and it was getting hot. so i upped the speed and not only did the cutting get easier but it felt that the tool got cooler. maybe its just me so try and let us know.
