Easy fix. I did not know the new motor already has the brush set in place ( I also ordered a set of brushes). Now I have a back up set of brushes. After taking the drill casing 1/2 off, I used my cell to take pictures just in case I had problems getting the drill back together. I will say this as a piece of advice for all: Any time you remove any screws from a plastic case, when you are putting the tool back together you should always first turn the screw backwards until you feel a slight click from the screw trying to seat itself. Then change direction to clockwise to drive the screw in. This will keep you from striping the plastic case screw hole.

Brush Box - 603754-01
Repair Difficulty:
Medium
Time Spent Repairing:
15-30 minutes
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Star pattern screwdriver set
Brushes were worn to nothing.
Just remove the 4 rear screws on the Dewalt drill remove the electrical connectors. Brushes are tough getting out and back in but you need that to be the case. Use needle nose pliers and keep firm pressure. Ensure to keep the guides lined up. I smashed one of mine and had to fix the guide so the brush kit slid back into the guide. Easy repair that saves a lot of money. Runs like new again.

Cordless Drill
Parts Used:
Brush Box - 603754-01
Repair Difficulty:
Easy
Time Spent Repairing:
15-30 minutes
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, hex key
The drill would not always start when I actuated the trigger.
It was simple. I removed the 4 rear drill housing screws using a hex key. I then removed the two wires that clip to the brush boxes. I then used a screw driver to pry out the 2 old brush box assemblies. I cleaned the commutator with a narrow strip of emery cloth and put in the 2 new brush box assemblies. I reconnected the wires, put the rear drill housing back on and fastened it in place with the 4 hex screws.

Look at the new brush boxes before you try prying out the old brush boxes so you can see how the new boxes clip in. It will help you to understand how to pry out the old boxes.

Cordless Drill
Parts Used:
Brush Box - 603754-01
Repair Difficulty:
Easy
Time Spent Repairing:
Less than 15 minutes
Tools Used:
, Torx key
DeWalt drill had loss of power and would not run for long.
Attempted the lease expensive repair (new brushes) to resolve the problem, which it did. Opening the drill side was easy with proper Torx key, and brush replacement was straight forward, simply put back as they were. Reassembling was easy if you assure the tabs on the motor (one on each side) are aligned with the pockets in the housing covers. When you first open verify the position of the transmission switch and the forward / reverse switch as these items need to be in same alignment for the housing covers to seat properly.

Question: How To Replace Motor And Brush B...

1302465

My DC925 is arcing and smoking, I know the motor and brushes need replacing............I need to find a video and/or instruction sheet on how to do the replacement........are there any such things??????
WJA
Hello 1302465,

At the back of the motor in between the bearing housing and the 603754-01 Brush Box. You will see a small rectangular slot. Get a small screw driver and pry the Brush Box out. Once you have it out a little way, you will be able to remove it. The new Brush Box will then be able to slide right back in. Hope this helps.

Question: Brushes For DW959

1275293

The best remedy for worn brushes on a DW959 is throw it away. The model is 15 or more years old. You have to bend the housing to replace the brushes then hope you didn't destroy the cap for it work. Good luck!

how is it done
got the tool apart what holds brush box in
Question: Cleaning Power Drill

1178333

I have a DC989 that I just replaced the brushes. Still getting sparking but can't remember if it is more than usual. I wanted to clean the motor. I already used compressed air but it still is very dirty with black soot in there. probably from the smoking it was doing with the old brushes. What solvent should I be using to dunk this in to clean out the soot?
WJA
Hello 1178333,

If the motor was smoking and arcing, then you put a new set of brushes in the motor. And now it is still arcing and you have blown out the motor with air. My guess is that you are in need of a new 396505-22SV motor assembly. I would think if you put the motor in any kind of solvent it would do more bad then good.

Hope this helps,

Question: DC988 Slow

RogerHSr

I have dropped my DeWalt DC988 drill and is now running very slow and making the battery's over heat. What do I need to check/repair.
Hi RogerHsr,
You need to remove the four screws on the back cover then remove the cover and look at the brush cartridges to see if they were knocked out of their socket. A number of time I've seen them knocked out and setting in side ways with a little bit of the brush riding on the commutator and making just enough contact to allows the tool to run.If this is the case just slide it back in the socket.Hope that helps.Good luck.

Question: How To Replace The Brushes On Mo...

luis

Please, can someone tell me how to replace the brushes?
Remove the tail cap with the 4 screws. unplug the wires from the brushes. pull the brush assembly straight out to the side replace with new ones. plug the wires back in on the same side they were on and put the tail cap back on.
Question: DW929 Drill

John Lawrence

Drill will operate only some of the time. Has a "burnt" smell. I have stalled the unit on occasion and gotten the same smell. I assume that the brushes are bad but have not checked this out yet. It could be the switch. It also seems to use up the battery rapidly. Any suggestions/comments? Also "Replacement Parts" doesn't seem to sell the brushes. Where can I get them?
Thanks, John
my drill has the same problem and is the same modle when i took it apart i could smell the trigger and it smelt burnt really bad so i would be willing to bet that is what it is
WJA
Hello John,

Usually when a cordless tool starts smoking and smelling it is the the motor or the switch. You might be able to inspect the motor to see if the windings are burnt. Also the part number for the brushes is 603754-01 if you would like to replace them first.

Good luck,
-WJA
