Part of the switch assembly for a Dremel model 260 - an old Dude.
Tool threw a brush, shorted out and blew the lead off one of the brush
holders. I reattached the lead, replaced the brushes, serviced the
rotor, plugged it in, turned it on and the resulting short fried the
Took this 3/4"x1/2"x1/4" black component out of the circuit (wired in-
between the slide switch and the brush holders. Tested across the
input lead that came from the slide switch and the output lead that
connected to white, got a solid connection, so I concluded the
internals got fused in the first short and that caused the second
short which fried the slide switch.
So, what is this devise? Has KBP04-01 printed on one side and 7237
printed on the other. Has (+) printed over one of the brush leads and
(-) printed over the other, with AC printed in between.
What does it do?
Could I get by without this devise and wire directly from the brush
leads to a 120V lamp dimmer switch to control on/off and speed
If not, I can fix this tool if I just knew what it is and where to
find this, or a modern day equivelent, of this component.
Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
