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


Carbon motor brushes are one of the most commonly replaced power tool parts. The reason is that carbon brushes are wear items, meaning that through friction and use they will gradually wear away and eventually will 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, also check your armature for burns, cracks, or other damage which are indications of a larger motor problem needing attention.

Question: DeWalt Reciprocating Saw DC938 R...

JohnDC

My saw seemed to "freeze up" and I could detect no sound of the motor when the switch was pulled, and, of course, the saw blade wasn't moving. I tried to move the blade by hand and it wouldn't budge.

I disassembled the saw, found nothing out of the ordinary, and the gear shaft input/gear box now seemed to move freely.

I tested the switch by putting a jumper cable across the battery inputs and found continuity across the brush leads when I pulled the switch. I did also find variable resistivity so it looks like the variable speed potentiometer (if that's what is inside the switch module) is working.

After reassembling the saw, I got no response from the motor when I pulled the switch.

This stumps me. The only thing I can figure out is a bad armature. Is there a good way to test it?
Check for a burnt smell on the armature. Usually when it quits working it burns up and this will be detected by smell. Check brushes too. Look at the bottom of them where they contact the armature to check if they are bad.
Hi johnDC,
Here's a good way to troubleshoot that model saw.First remove both leads off the link removed a continuity meter check for continuity across the leads .If you have continuity across your leads then most likely you have a switch problem.If you don't have continuity across your leads follow each lead back to the brushes and across your armature until you find the open circuit. Though armatures do go bad on DC tools its rather rare occurrence.That model saw had problems with the brush connectors burning and melting causing that problem.It also had some problems with the brush spring mounts breaking taking the need pressure off the brush but you wouldn't notice it unless you look closely. Hope this helps.Good luck.
