    Ok I got the sleeve off from around the bearing and it looks like I do need to undo this screw and the end bearing to release the motor. Screw is proving difficult.

SOURCE: Dewalt Drill DC728. Chuck came out of drill body

If you find that the end of the screw inside the chuck is actually broke then you have a gear problem inside your drill. This is actually a very common problem. Sometimes people push too hard on their drills and the gears inside wear out and break. This prevent the motor from wearing out, but, the gears have to be replaced.
If it is the gears and not the chuck. you broke the minimium of the front gear or gears inside your drill. YOU CANNNOT repair gears. they need to be replaced. you may be able to find some off brand gears to work but, you run the risk that they are not as strong as your original ones, or may not be exactly grooved correctly.
so, if replacing your chuck does not work. find replacement gears. IF you cannot find the gears from the manufacturer see about replacing your drill.
If the chuck is still good, keep it. If you buy the same model, keep your old drill for replacement parts, ie, switch, armature, cord, etc.
hope this helps somewhat.

SOURCE: removing the dewalt DC925 'rohm' chuck

I simply placed the chuck into a large vise and turned the drill counter clockwise and the chuck spun right off no problem without damaging anything!! It does have some thread lock on the chuck but just use your man strength and its as simple as turning the lid off the pickle jar! Do not waste your time or money with the removal tool...YOU DONT NEED IT!

Can I buy new parts for the two dime-sized screws' inners? I removed them nd now the mixer wont work.

What you are describing is the two side screws on the side of the mixer motor head. Yes you can buy all new parts for whats behind those screws or you can just buy new "Charcoal" thing...which are called "The Brushes" If you buy new parts off ebay or from Kitchen Aid you will have one very small concern. There are four different ways to insert the brushes back into the machine but only one way will make the machine work right or work at all. The brushes are spring loaded into the machine the screws caps keep them in and pushing them forward, the brush end rests on the commutator portion of the armature (The Motor) and when the brushes do not touch that portion of the motor the machine will not work at all until they are put in the machine correctly. You will notice on the brushes that one edge is beveled, inside the brush holder is a small metal clip/piece that has been bent up and into the brush holder space, the beveled edge must go in so that it will slide past this bent metal, if it is inserted incorrectly then the metal piece will hold the brush off of the comutator and the electric feild will not create the spark / energy needed to operate the mixer. If you want to replace all the parts associated with the brushes and brush holder you will have to do a FULL tear down of the machine in order to get at the set screw that keeps the brush holder tube in place, and to do that you will have to take the machine entirely apart. I hope this helps. If not; get back to us with more info on the problem and we will FixYa

Dewalt 743 how to replace the brushes

If the motor body has two large screws on the outside, then you can remove them and install new brush set. If there isn't, then you have to take the motor apart and install them. Try to look up the saw and get a parts break-down picture or drawing first.

How to replace brush holders on dewalt table saw dw745

There is a small allen screw in the field housing holding the brush holders in.
Most often I have found, if the brush holders are needing replacement the motor housing also needs replacement - they heat up and the plastic cracks.

How to replace Dewalt cordless drill brushes

The brush holders & brushes for your DC825 are only sold as an assembly and the left and right sides are different; Dewalt part number 640550-00 for the left, 640555-00 for the right. They are accessable only by splitting the clamshell and easy to replace once you get to them.

How do i change the bushes on my dewalt 18 volt battery drill

The brush holders are located at the back end of the motor. Depending on which model you have, you may have to only remove the end cap at the back of the motor to get access to the brush/holder set. Or you may have to split the entire clamshell to get at them. Be careful if you have to remove the transmission, there are a lot of small parts that can fall out and they all have to go back in correctly to make it work.

I have a Bosch brute jackhammer, I need the tool to remove the screw plug and my hammmer motor runs but it dosen't hammer

You can use an adjustable face spanner wrench to remove that cap. I don't remember the pin size but you can measure the holes and get the appropriate size. You can remove the whole plate with the armature by undoing the 4 cap screws. Prior to removing the motor plate you have to remove the handle plate from the axle that goes through the body. Undo the nut that holds the assembly on and slide it off. You can now remove the Armature plate. After removing the cap screws pull the assembly out about 1-2 inches. You will see the wires that go to the field attached to the brush holders. Remove the screw that holds these wires to the brush holders. You can then safely remove the whole assembly. This also makes it easier to remove that cap plug with the spanner wrench, because you can now put the whole assembly in a vise. I always heat around the cap with a torch before doing anything. Then I tap on the plug with a hammer a couple of times and voila it turns alot easier. Corrosion almost always builds up on this cap because of the different metals. (Steel and Aluminum respectfully)

Your hammer may have a broken connecting rod. To inspect this make sure you ping the cylider and body with marks so you line them up the same way. Then remove the 4 cap bolts that hold the cylinder to the body. Remove the cylinder and inspect the hammer cylinder and rod. If the connecting rod is not broken you will have to inspect the gears and pinions to make sure they are ok.

Hotpoint WM 22 wont spin

The first you need to do is check the brushes in the motor.
Remve the screws at rear of top cover, remove cover.
Slacken off the 2 bolts securing motor,and remove belt.Remove 2 screws that hold motor and lift motor up so you can access the brushes..
The brush holders will be either black or white, depress the plastic lug that holds the brush in place, and slide the holders out, remove the wires to the brushes, and check the carbons, if their is less than 2 or 3 mm left, then replace them.
Only fit the genuine brushes, and if you can make sure you fit the black ones, as they are better than the white ones.
Follow the instructions on the packaging on how to release the carbons from the captive position.
Refit motor, and ensure the belt is reasonably tight.
If it still does not work ,then the motor itself could be faulty, check for broken wires in the motor plug and harness.
Plz rate my solution.

Why does my dw831 grinder keep tripping circuit breakers?

try checking the brushes.

to do this: remove the 2 small covers on the left and right side of the tool and push aside the coil spring holding in the brush. the brush should freely pull out of the holder.

when you have the covers off, look for charring or melting. and after the brushes are out, rotate the arbor to move the armature inside and look to make sure it's not charred.

if that doesnt help, take apart the handle and look for melted or exposed wire. dewalt likes to pack the wires in tight among the screws and sometimes the normal vibration of the tool will cause a screw to cut into a wire and short the wire.

new brushes and holders (if melted) are usually around 20 dollars US
