Concerning 1970s 830 Bernina. There is no motor sound..nothing. Are the carbon brushes in the pedal?


The 830 models varied so I'm not sure. My machine looks like this:

Bernina 830 sewing machine feet pedal accessory box table instruction...

If you scroll over to the photo of the motor, there is a white plug which pulls out. Underneath, there is a screw. The carbon brush may be there. However, some 830s had the speed switch on the machine (right above the knee control) and others have it in the foot pedal.

I found the following information in my computer files that may be helpful: Bernina 830 Motor Brush Replacement

My machine is actually a Bernina 830 (mechanical 34 years old) I need to know how to get the housing off the motor so my hubby can replace the brushes

Re: sewng machine motor housing

DISASSEMBLY TO INSPECT OR CHANGE BERNINA 830 MOTOR BRUSHES:

Remove the big plastic cover piece on the bottom of the machine with the single screw in the center.

Remove the machine's end panel by removing the single silver screw from underneath the bottom middle of the side panel. Pull the bottom of the side panel out and down to remove it. It comes off easily.

Remove the two screws under the motor assembly (silver screws with black washers).

Swivel the motor assembly enough to remove the belt.
There is a another plastic panel on the motor assembly over the motor itself. Remove the two phillips head screws to remove this panel.

At this point you can see the commutator and inspect the "business" ends of the brushes. (In our case, one brush was almost gone and there was nothing left of the second brush except the spring!)

You can then slide the motor out of the housing. I pushed on the motor pulley and pulled on the other end of the motor with pliers. The motor comes out rather easily, but be careful not to disturb the wires any more than necessary.

With the motor exposed, unscrew the caps over the brushes and remove the brushes.

Our motor's commutator looks significantly worn and the motor may need to be replaced.

FWIW, if your machine hasn't been oiled for a long time, you should probably take time to do that. When the old oil solidifies, it sticks the moving parts together. Forcing the motor to try to run the machine can damage the machine. Use fresh good quality sewing machine oil or (I use) liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube and apply a couple drops every place metal rubs on metal. (Wiggle the handwheel and watch where things move.) Do NOT oil belts, synthetic gears, cams.

I have a Bosch WFL 1200 front load washing machine. I need to replace the brushes on the motor. This model only has an "oval" shaped panel at the back. The side and back panels are all one piece and c


ALWAYS disconnect electrics....You need to access the motor from the bottom of machine.as it is a pig to work on if you try to replace the bushes whilst in situ...what I do is empty the machines residual water from drain tube bottom front then remove back.... undo belt .... Then lean the machine at 45degrees to one side and undo the two retaining bolts on the pulley side .the whole motor will slide toward rear of machine but uncouple the electrics block first then remove motor.the brushes are spring loaded and the brass clip slides one way to release?there are plenty of YouTube tutorials on bosch washing machines that show brush replacement.good luck.

Change moter brushes pfaff 1471 model


Look on the right end of the machine for an access panel, below the hand wheel. You may also have to take the bottom off the machine. Once you are in there Look for an adjustment cam screw. completely remove that which should make your entire motor flop around. Look for other brackets and take those loose. Fish your motor out. The brushes are under a screw/cap. They are a spring and black square of graphite like stuff. Don't loose the screw or spring. While you are in there you might want to change the motor belt and or Timing Belt.

One bit of warning. If your machine has a timing belt... be prepared to have to re-time your machine.

Trying to organise changing brushes in Tricity Bendix AW 1400. I'm in Scotland, daughter and machine in England! Does top or back come off machine to allow access and is motor fairly accessible for...


Washing machine motors are usually induction motors and do not have brushes? Anyway, the back comes off and that normally gives access to the screws that hold the top on, but the motor is normally located at the bottom of the machine.

My brushes on my aquarius wma54 need replacing,where is the motor and how do i change the brushes.what type of motor is it


The motor is located at the bottom rear of the washer.
Remove lower rear panel, unplug lead into motor,, remove earth wire.
Remove 2 bolts holding motor to drum, lever motor away from you to remove.
Brushes are located at the end furthest away from the pulley.
There has been more than 1 type of motor fitted to this model, so until you remove the motor, you will not know which brushes you need.
