Hi i have a viperpro 2000 watt chop saw and the brushes have got to the end of there life but i can not find any one who stocks or sells them my local tool shop has told me to throw it away as they do not...


locate brushes with the same wire/spring attachments and that are slightly bigger than your brushes. Carefully reduce their size on abrasive paper laid on a flat surface, often checking for fit. They should slide into the guides freely without any sideways play. Be careful, the carbon abrades very fast and it is easy to rub off one end more than the other, rounding the surface off or having the brush taper, which is not what you want

Where are carbon brushes located inside Hoover Performa Plus PPA 146-80 and how easy is it to remove them and replace?


The carbon brushes are part of the drive motor , early machines had replaceable ones ,but on many modern machines they are not replaceable , it depends on which motor has been fitted . you need to know if / why they need replacing anyway before attempting same.

If there is any voltage on the power group, try it temporarily with another device, if there is a control light on the display and it burned then read this suggestion.#

Its written by Hitachi but its on all kind of brushes made by other brands to find .
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Carbon brushes are one of the most commonly replaced power tool parts. This is because carbon brushes are wear items, meaning that through friction and use they will gradually wear away until they need replacing. Worn brushes are a common causes of intermittent motor function, reduced electric braking and reduced motor power. A worn-out brush will often be worn down near to the wire lead and can be cracked, pitted, or burned. When replacing carbon brushes, be sure to inspect your armature for burns, cracks, or other damage which can indicate larger motor problems. [ NOW COMES THE IMPORTANT THING what i suggest ]
This Brush will pop out a pin when the Brush wears to a certain length.
It is advised to keep an extra set of these brushes on hand at all times

Need to replace carbon brushes on Indesit Omega 1200


The brushes are located inside the motor. Remove rear panel of washer, remove drive belt, from motor and drum, unplug the motor, undo screws that secure motor, and remove motor.
At the opposite end to the motor pulley, you will find the brushes located, undo 2 screws that secure the brushes, remove and replace brushes.
I would also check the pump filter, which should be located behind a removable panel at bottom of washer, unscrew anti-clockwise, remove and clean.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.
