Couple things, I would first take the handle half apart (if there one) and look at the condition of the commutator. Second make sure the brushes are fully seated. What happened to the old set of brushes, why did you replace them. Are the brushes you bought made for this tool? Sometimes when replacing the brushed the commutator has to seat them. THis is tricky unless you know what you are doing. Check on the items I suggested and get back to me and lets see what else we can look at. One more thought on the armature commutator how do the bars look, are they all pretty much the same or do you see some that are raised above others, if so the armature is bad and needs replaced.

How to fix my heavy duty 120v drill

Sounds to me your armature needs replacing. Basically brushes either work or don't work. some times you may get heavy sparking but that is the spring not pushing the brush on to the commutator. Loss of power and smoking usually armature if you use the drill in this state you may burn out the field coils as well.

Sparking carbon brush hr5001c

Brushes can have very small, blue sparks coming off them and be OK. If it's bad enough that you can hear, smell or see excessive sparking it can be caused by: a) The brushes are worn down or the springs are collapsed and the brushes are not making good contact with the armature. b) The armature contact (commutator) is damaged or there is a short in the armature windings. Replace the brushes or armature as needed. I can't give part numbers as your problem is listed in cut-off saws and grinders but your model number is for a rotary hammer.

Hilti TE14. It rotates slowly and i'm getting a burning smell from the area around the armiture?

I would bet the armature is shot for sure and possibly the field. When an armature shorts out it usually gives off excessive sparking from the brush area. When a field fails it will usually run very slow if at all.

SbE505 hammer drill needs new brushes. How do you remove hammer/drill ring switch behind chuck to take drill apart?

You shouldn't have to take the tool that far apart. Just remove the screws that hold the switch handle together, remove the handle, and you should see the brushes. The brushes are at the rear of the tool, not the front.

Exesive sparks on the brushes (Bosch GSB 16RE drill)

If you used the drill any amount with a burned field coil there is a good chance that is has burned the new armature out.
