Burning electric tool brushes

I just changed the brushes in my Delta tablesaw and I'm still getting alot of flash coming from the motor. There doesn't appear to be a particular way to insert them. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks, MR

Smoke come from motor and now drill hardly moves .is new motor required or brushes

You will rarely get smoke from the brushes on electric tools. Smoke is usually a result of either the armature or field coils getting hot enough to melt or burn the varnish insulation off the wire which results in a loss of or no power because of shorting in the windings. You'll have to replace whichever part burned the windings and find out what caused the problem or you'll burn the new part the same way the original burned.

If the blade turns freely by hand,check the motor brushes.Most high quality power tools have easily replacable brushes,and they usually only cost a few bucks.

Common problems are motor brushes on direct drive saws and also the switch. The switch takes a lot of surge current and often burn the contacts. Troubleshoot with a voltmeter or ohmmeter.

If power cords are flexed alot, they can break at flex points.

Bosch 4000 tablesaw won't start. Brushes replaced

I found that the remaining problem was a intermittent at the switch, which disassembly and cleaning resolved.
Tilting the motor / blade assembly down allows access from below, to the 3 screws fastening the controller circuit board cover on the brush end of the motor. From there, one can easily test exposed wires for power supply, see that brushes are contacting and clean accumulated sawdust.

Using a Delta 10'' table saw when it sounded like it was binding a bit and then a small amount of smoke started coming out of the motor area. I quickly shut off the saw to look for the problem. I set the...

Hello, the brushes are two gray sprung loaded electrical conductors. They are located on the inner main spindel of the motor (armature), when they start to wear out you will find that most electrical motors will slow down in revolutions. Experience has taught me that when an electrical motor emits smoke it has normally burnded out the armature. This in all honesty is not worth fixing as it is an expensive job, it is cheaper to buy a new saw. Sorry to convey bad news but I hope this clarifies thing for you.

Ok, the motor turns, but throws sparks on the brushes. This is normal to an extent for universal motors used on that type of equipment.

Try reassembling the saw, and put a blade on it, then try it. If it runs, try cutting a piece of scrap 1x, both crosscut & rip. If the motor can't hold the load, you may still have to replace it.
