Sounds like the stator is damaged. that is the shaft that the brushes rub on. unfortunately this usually means time to buy a new saw. since you really don't have much to loose, you can tear the saw apart and pull the stator shaft out and sand the copper area and smooth out any rough spots or nicks.Ultimatley you would want to chuck it up in a small lathe and turn it down a hair.this would ensure that you stay even all the way around. but most people don't have a lathe so just put it in a vise and take some 120 grit sand paper,preferably narrow strips about 1inch thick and start working your way around.

Hi. I have a dw744 and the motor started to sputter/vibrate and spark a lot. How doe I know if I need to replace the brushes?


Not Much on saws but it is alot like a starter motor and if the Brushes wear down it will cause metal to metal contact with the armeture and will cause them to spark and soon wont work.

Bosch 71/4 wormdrive keeps flipping breaker


If the saw is tripping breakers, either you are trying to run the saw on a circuit that can't handle the amps the saw needs to run or something is wrong with the saw that is making it draw more amps than it should.
Power supply: You should be on a 15 amp circuit or higher for this saw. Popping breakers can also be caused by using long or low guage extension cords or a low guage power cord on the saw. The saw should have a 14 guage power cord on it and extension cords should not be lower than 12 guage if 50 feet long.
Saw: You've already replaced the cord & switch, if the brushes are OK, look to the mechanics of the saw. The blade should turn freely and smoothly by hand with the saw unplugged. Things to look for are a lack of lubrication in the transmission, binding or broken gears in the trans and binding or seized bearings on the armature or worm gear set. Also, a dull blade forced through wood will also cause the saw to be overworked and draw enough power to trip breakers.

Apex ld3249 shot sparks out and tripped the breaker


A nasty short somewhere or wrong voltage to set---do not keep plugging it in and tripping the breaker--in fact do not plug in at all until a technician examines it(tell him/her what the issue is).

To answer the question here: Dead short on or across the AC voltage line inside the set most likely of primary side of power supply.

I have powermatic pm2000 3hp 10" saw, when I try to turn on push on button , it blows the breaker. I have correct power. I have used this saw for 5 years no problems. I took magnetic switch apart,...


There is a direct short some where.Unplug and turn the blade and listen to the bearings. One of the brushes might be worn down and be jammed against the armature. Five years of use and those brushes might be ready for replacement. If things turn out to be easy fix then changing brushes is not that hard.When you take them out you will see some small holes in the holders.When you put the new brush in the spring will try to push the brush back out,use a small piece of wire in the holes to hold it in.Next install the brushes back where they go.Check the armature out use a hacksaw blade to clean those grooves between the metal strips.Put the armature back in place and button it back together and pull out the keeper wires and your done.

I have a sears kenmore gas dryer model 87592820 it keeps blowing the breaker. It was running about 1 min. then a spark flew out and it tripped the breaker. When I reset the breaker it continues to trip it....


Hi,
This sounds like you have a wire that rubbed through and is shorting out...
open up the back or where you saw the sparks come from and you will easily see the burnt mark...then you can fix it...

Do not keep trying the breaker... it is tripping to protect you and keep you safe.

My DW384 circular saw keeps tripping the GFI receptacle


Most houses have all the outdoor GFI outlets on one breaker...perhaps you can try another power tool with a similar draw to check if it is your saw or the GFI causing your problem. I can't see bad brushes causing a breaker to trip... the saw would just stop working.

Bosch table saw model 4000. Brushes where sparking alot .


It sounds like the armature is gone, if you are lucky the field coil is ok. Pull the back of the motor off and have a look at the armature where the brushes run if it looks burned or really rough the armature is gone and must be repalced.

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.
