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.

Question: Router Brushes

How do you replace router burshes

Reply: Router Brushes

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.
