Motor brushes spark like crazy!

The motor didn't come up to speed anymore. It would come up then drop down a little. Then after a while it started sparking. I replaved the brushes but it still sparks.

    Thanks, I will most likely replace the armature. When I spin it around between my fingers I can feel a ridge in it . I think that's were the brushes are bouncing causing the sparks.

    The field in my mind would be the better fix. Replace the field and sand the commutators down a bit till shiny and change brushes. The new armature is over $100, but the the new field is about $50 with shipping. Set of brushes are cheap too and change the bearings on each end of the armature too as those tend to seize after awhile...

If you already replaced the brushes you could have a couple problems, the least is the armature commutator needs cleaned and the more expensive is that it needs replaced. This is a problem unless you want to tackle taking the motor partially apart. Let me know what route you want to take either a repair center or looking at the commutator.

    Before you buy a new armature take it to a repair center and ask them to test it on a growler helper and if OK see if they can turn and undercut it for you and after turning I would recheck it. Also if you do replace it buy new bearings, it will save a headache in the future.

    It could also be the FIELD that is the culprit, but also replace brushes while at it, and also you could try sanding the commutators down a bit upon replacement.

Cant start my Celebrity X scooter. Seems to drop into free wheel on power demand.


Are there any fault codes? if so check your manual. Is the speed setting turned down low?. The click is the brake releasing so that's ok. Motor brushes may need attention.

I just got a kitchAid standmixer today and I'm sooo happy,but when I turned it on i noticed a little spark going out from where i should change the speed ,, is that normal or do I have to return i


You are probably seeing some dust or the brushes wearing in, unless you smell something burning, its may be just breaking issues. Any electric motor will have small sparks at the brushes. Are they sort of behind the round brush replacement screws?

Arcing at the brushes is normal although if worn down enough, they can skip since their travel is limited to avoid damaging the copper commutator.Look at the brush guides closely; the simple spring that supplies a little tension to the brushes will 'bottom out' on a slot in the guide once the brushes get too short.

The skipping might be due to the type of speed regulator that is used; an older type was mechanical and didn't regulate well at low speeds.

In my experience, these are really throw away compressors. I have had several. You might get the parts ... however, if the brushes are arcing, the armature is probably damaged. If that is the case, the motor has probably run hot. As such, the field may well be heat damaged now ... ok, so replace the motor right? Will cost you about $100.00 for parts ... add your labor ... even if that is $0.00, when you are all done, you will have a five year old compressor (worn sleeve and piston? worn reed valves) with a nice new motor.

That was my experience. I replaced the thing. I only use this little compressor at remote places. I have a larger, main compressor for other work.

Clicking sound on Washer Spin Cycle


You are quite correct in thinking that it is the motor brushes that are worn.
You need to remove the motor and replace the brushes.
This will solve your problem.
Good luck.

Replaced armature and brush's and there is alot of heat and spark and it starts slowing down?


Unless somewhat preformed, brushes have a tendency to arc like crazy and can produce heat and even smoke. I would remove the brushes and use a fine 'keyhole' type file to give them a little inside curve so they have better contact to start with.

Hello,
DO NOT TRY TO TURN THE KIRBY ON ANYMORE BEFORE YOU GET THIS REPAIRED!!! Your Kirby needs carbon brushes and if you don't already need a new armature, the worn out brushes will destroy the armature that you have. Here is a guide that will help you get down to the carbon brushes to change them...

It is a guide to replace the power switch, but will give you the step-by-step to get down to the carbon brushes.

Hope this helps,
