Kymco maxi scooter replacing carbon brushes difficult to reach. Must the motor be taken out?

Carbon brushes are delicate and easily damaged so good access is highly desirable and good visibility is needed for fiddling with springs, screws, terminals.

In addition, by the time carbon brushes are worn out, especially if the motor is an enclosed type, a great deal of highly conductive carbon dust has been generated that if left inside can rob a motor of efficiency. It is therefore better to remove the dust.

Sometimes a motor should be dismantled and washed, sometimes a cleaning aerosol can be used but mostly the best way is to use compressed air in the open air while wearing a dust mask or holding a breath.

If the motor must be removed for that, then it must be removed...

Replacement of carbon brushes

If you have the parts, then installation is simply the reversal of the dismantle. Take photos along the way if unsure. The only thing I would recommend is to give the commutator, (the segments where the brushes rub), a very light emery to remove any arc marks that may have occurred due to short brushes. Once this is done and the brushes are installed, if you want to be pedantic you can use a fine bit of emery under the brushes and around the commutator and 'Bed' the brushes into the shape of the commutator. This is usually not necessary with such small brushes. Gently 'running in' the brushes under use will suffice. Cheers Bob

Where to get new motor Carbon brushes error f06

Have you already removed the motor and dismantled it to check the brushes. It is unusual to find a universal motor (that uses brushes) in a washing machine. Normally they use an induction motor that does not have brushes.

Electrolux el 7020 Canister Vacuum shuts of continuously do i need to Change the Carbon Brushes

How old? If fairly new you should not need brushes, bad brushes would probably not allow the vacuum to run at all. Last time you changed filter? Sounds like the cover to the filter is not closing well enough. There's also possibility you have a clog in the wand or hose.

2003 gmc envoy xl 4wd 5.3 litre idles low and stalls mainly when parking but sometimes also when coming to a stop...have replaced many parts already.

Hello: Get some carburetor cleaner, remove rubber tube going to the throttle body. Spray cleaner on rag and open throttle plate and clean all black stuff (carbon) off the throttle plate and the inner bore of the throttle plate. Make sure its clean, You can spray some in the throttle body but not very much as too much and you cab blow the engine up. If build up is bad (carbon) go to Auto Zone and purchase a small brass bristle brush to help remove carbon.

Won't start. not a battery problem. i think my motor is bad. how much does a motor usually cost?

You are looking at region of $150 and labour on top. I am putting a tip together on starters in general that I include herein. When you get your motor off it could be helpful and save you some money in the process:-

Dead...? Sticky solenoid due to corrosion or glued up lubricant and dirt ? dismantle and rub clean with some emery paper. Worn starter motor armature brushes ? strike motor body with end of a piece of timber whilst cranking; the jolt may encourage enough contact to get the starter motor running for long enough for ignition to occur. ? For a permanent fix dismantle the starter motor and replace the carbon brushes. Corrosion in the starter motor body between the steel jacket and aluminium gear casting.? insert self tapping screw between the two parts to bridge the corrosion? For a permanent fix remove motor and strip down and wire brush components back to the metal and then reassemble.

Click, click, click ...occasional start Worn contact plates in solenoid failing to provide high current to energize the starter motor windings? dismantle solenoid and replace copper contact plates and plunger ring (readily available as an inexpensive overhaul kit).

Wahr, wahr, warh...laboured motor Worn bronze bearings on the ends of the starter motor are allowing the armature to run off centre and grind against the surrounding field magnets on the inside of the motor body? dismantle motor and replace the bronze bearings (inexpensive fix). Over-drawing motor - high current is drawn but this is not translated into effective turning effort by the motor. The field magnet windings have begun to short out, probably as a result of age or through over use in constantly trying to start a poorly igniting engine ? replace/ exchange the starter motor as the field windings of the stator magnets on the motor body are fried and beyond repair. Wheeeeeeee start Although engaged fully with the flywheel a slipping pinion gear clutch means that the motor is ineffectual at turning the engine over ? remove the starter motor and replace the pinion gear on the end of the starter motor shaft

Lottery start...occasional no start

  • The motor occasionally refuses to turn first time and has a defined rhythmic pulse when turning over - this is due to either burnt out armature coil or the contact face of the armature has become badly pitted causing the brush to miss making contact.

? - replace/ exchange the starter motor as armature windings are beyond repair.

The throttle body needs cleaning. It has some carbon build up, and when the battery went dead the computer lost its learned values, one of which is base throttle position. Now its reset back to factory specs, not accounting for a dirty throttle body. Seen it a million times
