The housing cover is removed by removing the one Torx (t-20 or t-25 ) screw from the end of the housing where the power cord goes inside.  Once this screw is removed the brushes can be quickly replaced.  Go to this page for an exploded diagram.
http://www.toolpartsdirect.com/cgi-bin/schematic.cgi/bosch/1215.034

The screw you want to remove the housing is listed as part 130 in the diagram.  Then the brush (part 801) can be unplugged an removed from brush holder (part 116) by gently pulling back the brush spring (part 126). Then the spring must be held back to install the new brush. Then plug it in, and replace the other brush, test the unit before replacing the housing cover.  The blue sparks generated by running the unit are normal and will decrease as the new brushes are worn to the shape of the armature.  Good Luck!

My belt is lubed and properly tightened. The belt will slow down intermittently randomly while running without anyone on it. Model NTL2495.0


first of all check the drive belt is loose or not. Drive beit connect with the motor and roller of the treadmill. its not possible to see the drive belt out side. you can only see it if you remove the motor cover. if its loose the try to tighten it. if its not the problem then the treadmill motor have some problem. Either the motor is faulty or the carbon brush is faulty. There is 2 carbon brush inside the motor which is replaceable, its used to take the voltage to the rotary part (armature) of the motor. If the contact with the rotary part and carbon brush is poor the this type of problem can occur. tyr to change the brush. Here i have added a video which demonstrate how to change the carbon brush of the treadmill motor. It not the exact model you have. but almost all treadmills have the same type of motor. even after replacing the carbon brush the treadmill shows the same problem then you have to charge the motor with a new one .

I compare it to a gas motor with a miss.


Could be your carbon brushes. Really easy job to check. The brushes are located inside the motor housing and are covered by 2 or 4 black caps depending on your scooter model. You simply undo the caps and remove the Brush. Check that there is plenty of carbon material left and that the spring and contact are in good condition and that the Brush slides freely through the housing. Sometimes a sticking brush or bad contact can cause power fluctuations..... Let me know how you get on.

Won't turn on


Get a copy of the Repair Part List for your model at Kitchenaid.com
On each side of the Motor Housing(1) is the large black Brush Motor
Cap(23). Each Carbon Brush(19) is keyed (one corner is not square)
and is designed to go into the Motor Housing slot but only one way.
Each Carbon Brush must make contact with the Motor Coils. The
motor will not turn if one or both does not come in contact with the coils.
If the brushes are too worn out, of course they won't touch the coils
neither and your motor will not run. You can purchased new brushes
on Ebay if they need to be replaced.

Plugged it in and it won't run but it was running fine when I put it away two weeks ago.


Check the plug for loose wire or at blower where wire it enters to make sure the wire was not pulled and disconnected inside. If after looking and it is not a wire, check the brushes on the motor. They could be worn out or not making a good contact. Blow out brush housing and re-install brush sometimes this works. That's about all I can think of unless there is a safety switch then check that. Good luck.

My hotpint machine will fill with water but the drum will not turn at all


When the drum is supposed to turn do you hear the motor running? if you do all you need to do is put a new belt on. if you do not hear it running it could be the carbon brushes which are cheap to replace. to replace carbon brushes buy them from hotpoint make sure for your model then open the cover at the bottom back of machine with screw driver. when panel open you should see motor. on the motor there should be white clips on each side unclip this and you have got one of the carbon brushes replace them as the way they came before you tock them out put cover back on and test it on a spin cycle. make sure machine plug is unplugged when you open the machine.
if the carbon brushes when you take them out are long they are ok if they are short you will need to replace them. if you put new carbon brushes in and still won't work then it is control panel which needs replacing witch will cost a lot. hope this helped.

How to change carbon brushes


You need to know that very seldom will new carbon brushes alone `FIX`a motor in todays vacuums as they are higher RPM than those of 30 years ago.
On a salvageable motor a good rebuild procedure will generally include repacking bearings, cleaning suction fans and reseating new brushes with an abrasive seating stone at low speed with a motor run in device with variable voltage

That said, I have not done a HENRY in years but it likely will contain a generic AMTEK Lamb type motor as it is sold as more durable vac.
On a traditional vac motor, carbon brushes are removed by releasing a clamp over the brush. The brush holder will have either a flag terminal on it where the wiring will disconnect from the side, or a flat flag terminal which slides into a pocket on the carbon brush housing.
. If you are going to the trouble of replacing the brushes, remove and inspect the old ones for wear and chipping. Also inspect the commutator surface on the motor where the brushes contact. If there are any curved gaps between segments, or if the com is worn like an apple core , you need a motor complete.
If the motor has simply worn to the point where a brush has stuck or worn to nothing, you may be bale to reseat the new brushes, however any evidednce of BLUE sparks or noise is not a good sign . Best of luck. Post back if you need more help
