Description:
This brush is a genuine Porter-Cable replacement part, not generic. As pictured, this brush is ready to install and includes carbon brush, wire lead, and spring. This item is sold individually. Over time, brushes will wear down and eventually require replacement.

This brush will fit the models listed in the 'Compatibility' section below. It is not guaranteed to fit any other power tool models.

• Worn brushes are often the cause of a poorly running motor
• Replacing brushes can fix an intermittent motor
• New brushes can restore a motor’s electric braking


Carbon motor brushes are one of the most commonly replaced power tool components. Because carbon brushes are wear items, meaning that through friction and use they will gradually wear away, they will eventually require replacement. Worn brushes are common causes of intermittent motor function, reduced electric braking, and reduced motor power. A worn out brush will often be worn down near the wire lead and may be cracked, pitted, or burned. When replacing carbon brushes, be sure to also inspect your armature for burns, cracks, or other damage which indicates a larger motor problem.

Replace brushes in Porter Cable Router.
Remove the old brush caps with a screw driver, then remove the brushes. Install the new brushes in the brush holders Challenge getting the brush assembly to stay " down" or "in" until the new brush caps can get placed properly to engage threads. Persistence paid off.

Bought Porter Cable 690 Series router "at an auction that "wouldn't start".
Saw a 690 Series Porter Cable router at an auction that wouldn't start. Noticed that it was missing carbon brushes and caps. Replaced them and boom, it started. Thus, was able to get a router, plunge router accessory, and another adjustable base for $80.00. Was able to use your site to identify the correct replacement parts, install them and obtain an excellent tool for a boat load of savings.

Tool Type:
Router
Parts Used:
Carbon Brush - N031652
Cord - A11126
Repair Difficulty:
Easy
Time Spent Repairing:
30-60 minutes
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Pliers, Wire strippers, crimp wire lug, crimp wire connector
Cord had been cut and one brush was chipped
I ordered a new cord and a set of brushes for my router. Instead of replacing the cord I made it a foot shorter. I had to remove the head cap of the router and remove the switch and the variable speed control. I stripped the cord wires at the end and used the new rubber cord guard I had purchased as the old one was damaged. I threaded the cord wires through the flexible rubber guard and attached the shorter cord as it was before. I had to crimp a lug on one wire and I had to use a capped crimp to join two other wires. The router worked fine with the chipped brush so now I have a new factory cord and a set of brushes in stock for future repairs.

Miter motor quit working
Motor just stopped working between cuts. From past experience (in the 1970's) I assumed the brush(s) had failed. Tool was 8 years old and I had never checked them. Was alarmed to find Porter Cable no longer makes many parts for this saw--including NOT making brushes. Was tickled to find eReplacement let me cross index my model saw against their brand of brush. Ordered 3 sets for 3 tools total. Very happy to receive the brushes and the first set fit perfectly into the Miter saw. Started the first time. Great experience.

Question: Router Brushes

How do you replace router burshes
WJA
Hello 1304274,

You will need to remove the 803483 Brush Cap. It is better to use a larger screw driver to remove this. Don't put to much pressure on the cap when unscrewing it, they have a tendency to break. Once you have it off, notice how the brush is situated in the brush holder. Sometimes you can remove them by hand or you can use a small screw driver to pull the old brush out. Once the brush is out make sure there isn't any debris in the brush holder. Then just replace the brushes as they were. And you should be ready to go.
