    Hi thank you for your reply, the model is PS174. I also thought about pullers, the problem is the bearings seem to be pressed onto the shafts and into place at the same time, ie the bearing is not exposed . Hope this makes sense.

    When you take the the pully side off the machine the armature will come out as well. You might need to tap the end of the blade shaft to help it along. The rear bearing on the armature should come off with the pullers. suport the housing and you can tap the main shaft out of the housing and you will then find it easy to replace that bearing. the beaaring on the fan end can be removed by removing the fan and pulleyleaving the bearing to be pressed / tapped out of the housing. rebuild the armature/housing cover in the rverse manner remembering to make sure that you put the bearing sleve on the rear bearing if it had one (some old ones didn't) once the housing with the armature in replaced then fit the blade axel support thr left hand side as you tap it in with a soft mallet and make sure it is fully home other wise you will have trouble alinging the belt.. Sometimes when you refit the blade it pulles it throught th e last bit. If you need any more help than you can contact me at

Try using a pair of two or three leg pullers. You can also use a split plate and press them off if you have a press. You don't say which model ELU it is.

Elu tgs172 motor stopped running and makes whirring noise and will turn very slowly if the saw blade is turned

Sounds like a worn out bearing.
Instead of the shaft turning concentric with the outer bearing, it roles around in the worn bearing like the wheel of a stunt car going around a loop-de-loop --except the relative sizes are closer so it makes a lot of racket.

That Elu is a cool saw concept. They came out in the 1960's before commodity Miter saws hit the market so big. I've used one before.

I suspect the bearings can be pressed out and replaced. Take the saw to a motor repair shop and you might get them replaced for $15 a bearing. There's one bearing at each end of the motor.
