Description:
Genuine OEM replacement
This brush is sold individually, 2 are needed for this tool
It is always best to replace both brushes, even if only one is worn.

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.

There are over 120 tool that use this brush.

The carbron brush was worn out.
1. Remove housing around top of motor by unscrewing screws with a power drill to speed process. (Screwdriver is suitable but slow)
2. Note the position of the power button and lock mechanism for proper orientation upon re-installation.(Taking a pic with my camera on phone is helpful if no schematic is available)
2. Once exposed I removed carbon brushes from seat with needle-nose pliers. The brushes are held in place with wind-up springs and require a small screwdriver to relieve the tension on the brush for removal, a delicate touch is required.
3. Installation is reverse of removal.

Repair Difficulty:
Medium
Time Spent Repairing:
30-60 minutes
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Pliers, soldering iron, heat gun
Wiring from field winding on motor to control board was broken at the connector
1. Replaced brushes based on device failure symptoms and repair recommendations.
2. During brush replacement, noticed wiring/connector connection from field winding was barely making contact.
3. Spliced old brush connector onto field wiring. Blade connector (blade type) used in field wiring is not easily obtained, so reused brush connector. Brush connector was the same connector used by the field winding.
4. Used heat shrink tubing to insulate splice.
5. Tested sander for proper operation.

Needed new brushes
Removed three screws and the top (cap) of the sander. Removed the old brushes by holding back the spring clips that hold the brushes in place. Installed the new brushes. Connected the wires from the brushes in the same location as the previous brush wires. Reinstalled the top of the sander. Plugged it in, and it works just fine.

Sander quit running
Removed the top cover after unplugging. Noticed brushes were very short so decided to replace to see if this is the issue. Dust cover was compromised so that was a no brainer.
New brushes were very long, installed easily and it all went back together and ran perfectly.

    This experience, like all others that I've had with eReplacementparts.com was excellent. I found the part I needed easily and quickly, it was in stock and inexpensive, and it arrived within a few days. Being able to keep tools running for our students is important and eReplacementparts.com makes it easy for us to do this.

    ORDERED WRONG PART FOR DEWALT SANDER
    REORDED PART WORKS GREAT
    Guest - September 11, 2019 Verified Purchase

    simple and easy repair
    the replacement brushes for my DeWalt orbital sander were very easy to replace. The only downside was fact that the plastic package indicated that the brushes were for a Porter-Cable sander. The invoice did not indicated that the same part was identical with that for DeWalt. I had a bit of anxiety until poking around indicated that the parts were identical. Could have used something on the invoice.

    Fast shipping! Correct parts!
    The fast shipping was a nice surprise! The parts were correct and I have two grinders working again now. Thank you for a Great transaction!

    Easy order, look like the right parts, haven't installed yet (have Metabo grinder, too) back-up.
    Yeh, my only "complaint" is I wasn't sure if I was ordering a pair or single brushes. I kind of assumed they would come in pairs (like humans..haha!) or would've prolly ordered 8, cuz you know how things get discontinued, on old models.
