Where do you get motor brushes for a craftsman 4 6 amp angle grinder model 900.11650? Sears says they are unavalible.

probably correct from sears
but as sears do not make brushes you can try an appliance shop for generic brushes to suit your unit
brushes can be filed to width and thickness and fitted correctly by an experienced repair person so ask around

My circular saw is not working

Check brushes...
Dewalt Craftsman 2 Pack Carbon Brush Holder for Saws 147097 09 2pk
or sometimes the switch fails...
Craftsman 7621301 Circular Saw Switch
if you luck out, it may just be a broken wire, right at the switch, or right where it enters the saw? Pulling the, or directly on the cord vs. just the plug puts a lot of strain on the wires.
But if it is one of the parts above, very easy repair.

I have a Craftsman 125 psi 1.5 hp 3 gallon air compressor. When I plug it in and turn on I see a blue arc come from somewhere. How do I fix this?

If the blue arc is coming from the motor it might be an older motor that uses brushes. If the motor is serviceable you would need to take apart the motor and change the brushes. Blue arcs don't usually come from shorts

How to change the brushes in the older Craftsman tool. Seems they are placed in the motor and the end closed by small tabs bent down?

if that is the case without having the model number it sounds like they are not replaceable and you would have to buy a motor assembly. Alot of tool mfrs did not make these brushes replaceable.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. First off you did not mention the age of this tool which would have been quite helpful in my response.

I looked up your parts here:

You should inspect the brushes (item 11) for wear or broken springs. From what I can tell this particular model has been in the retail market place for at least 10 years. This would lead me to believe that the brushes are suspect. The brushes can be removed by unscrewing the opposing "screwdriver slotted" plastic caps on the outside of the tool and then carefully lift them out for inspection.
Use a flashlight and inspect the armature where the brushes come into contact. It should be shiny copper colored and not dark or black.

I also note that the switch has 5 speeds. Since it does not work on any speed... I doubt the switch has failed.

If you have more questions after inspecting the brushes, feel free to respond anytime with those questions

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

No control of speed on bench grinder,need schematic

Unless the motor is a brush type universal unit, there is commonly no way to change the speed of an induction motor. There are AC motor speed control units available, but cost more than the grinder as they change the frequency as well as the voltage. There are speed controllable grinders available that use brushes so that simple electronics can control speed. Hope this helps!
