Specifications
  • Brush head: 1/2
Description:
Genuine Makita replacement part
Includes two Carbon Brushes with wire lead attached.

• Worn brushes frequently are the cause behind a motor running poorly.
• Replacing brushes can fix a motor that’s operating intermittently.
• New brushes can restore a motor’s electric braking.


Carbon brushes are one of the most commonly replaced power tool parts. This is because carbon brushes are wear items, meaning that through friction and use they will gradually wear away until they need replacing. Worn brushes are a common causes of intermittent motor function, reduced electric braking and reduced motor power. A worn-out brush will often be worn down near to the wire lead and can be cracked, pitted, or burned. When replacing carbon brushes, be sure to inspect your armature for burns, cracks, or other damage which can indicate larger motor problems.

Questions & Answers

I bought a used miter saw it was working great,some sparking from the motor down towards the cutting head inside the motor housing. One minute it was working then nothing. What would be the cause?
Brian for model number LS1013
Hello Brian, thank you for your question. I would recommend checking the brushes and brush caps. It sounds like the need to be replaced. I hope this helps!
I have a bit that is stuck and I can't get it out of the collect. I also can't find my wrench's or owners manusl.
Richard for model number 3601B
Hi Richard, Thank you for your question. If the stuck bit is not coming out of the collet try a few drops of WD-40 or Liquid Wrench and let it seep into the collet around the bit shank. Next, hold the spindle with a wrench or spindle lock and then, with a thick work glove on your other hand, grab the bit and twist back and forth until it is free. Also, here is a link to your owner's manual that you may reference, https://www.manualslib.com/manual/649103/Makita-3601b.html. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Less than 15 minutes
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Small forceps to remove the brushes
Routine replacement of brushes
The old brushes had about 1/3 of their original length. I removed brush caps with a screwdriver, then used some forceps to remove the worn brushes. Installed the new brushes into the brush holder, then replaced the brush caps. I have used the planer for over 40 years without any problems other than feed roller replacement.

Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Metric tap and die set
Didn't work
This is on a Makita 3612BR router that was given to me. Checked the brushes, one was wore and the other was gone. Just had to remove the brush caps and clean out the brush holders, then insert the new brushes and screw the brush caps back on. There were some other things wrong like the cord was shot, easy enough to replace. Some one replaced some of the screws with SAE screws instead of METRIC, that was a small fix, tap and die set to the rescue. A good cleaning and it works great.

Tool Type:
Circular Saw
Parts Used:
Carbon Brush Set - CB154
Repair Difficulty:
Medium
Time Spent Repairing:
30-60 minutes
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Dremel
Brushes gone
The old brushes were seize into the armature. I did not want to take the armature out of the saw housing. Took a dremel tool and sawed out small holes in the side of the saw where the saw vents are located. Took a small jeweler screwdriver and tap the brushes thru the holes created.. This loosed the old brushes. I made sure everything was cleaned of all carbon. Installed new carbon brushes. Saw now screams like a new one. If your saw is under warranty, I would not do this. My saw was old and I had nothing to lose.

    right part, quick install, back in business
    Guest - June 22, 2019 Verified Purchase
    Great part; worked as expected.
    Part was in great condition; fit perfectly. However, there was trouble with "first" order and delivery. Ordered first time, never came, kept checking on delivery (emails said it was coming) it never came! Had to cancel first order and re-order. Second order was fine; delivered/arrived quickly with no problems.
