The brushes are on the front and back of the motor, under the top cover. Remove the four screws on the top cover and remove it. The brushes are held in place by a coil spring, pull it back so the brush will slip out. Some brush leads have slip connectors and others are held in place by a screw, depends on what type router you have. Disconnect the brush lead then reverse the process to install the new brush.

SOURCE: router runs slow

I still think that it is the bearings, especially since of the squealing noise which is a symptom of the bearing seizing up and the armature shaft would get hot transferring the heat to the motor housing. Give me the model number and brand and I will find a breakdown and part numbers for you and also if you give me your general location I will try and find someone local to get the parts.

SOURCE: How difficult is it to replace a fan in a 7518

it has to be pressed on and off the armature shaft, Also unless there is a retaining ring or other stop it needs to be set to a certain depth so it wont hit the housing. I would try and see if there is a repair facility that can do this work for you, the cost I would think would be minimal

Loud whinning 7539

Noises like that are usually a bearing going, or gone, bad. If you keep running it eventually the alignment of the armature will be off enough to make contact with the field and one or both will get damaged enough to warrant replacement. Bearings run between $7 to $15 to replace. Armatures are $175 and Fields are $110 for your router.

My 12 year old plunge router 7529 does not start. It worked just fine a couple of days ago and all then sudden... nothing. Any suggestions!

A 1 year old router...that suddenly stops working. My suspicions would be brushes first then the switch.

There are 3 different types of this router Type 1, 2, and 3.

Parts can be found here:

Brush is item 3 and switch is item 4.

Plunge router is stuck in the router base. Porter Cabe 891 router is stuck in the plunge base. Released the buckle and won't come out. What to do? Thanks, Joe

If you are talking about the nut tap on it with a hammer, if you are talking about the tubes you can try cleaning them with air and then using some lubricating fluid to free up the piston/springs. Let me know if you need more help

How to adjust the collet easily?

Look for a button that will lock the collet in place. This will allow you to adjust the collet with a single wrench, without having to wrestle with several wrenches.
