SOURCE: how to open the case in order to replace the

This is a serious disassembly and re-assembly.

Not only do you need to remove the yellow plastic cover end, but also disassemble the collet end. Depending on which version 618 you have it may have screws on the collet end or just a large nut. Sometimes you can't see the screws because they are plugged or covered with wood dust. The bearing is press-fit on the shaft on at least one end and requires an arbor press and special pressing sleeve. So you can only get so far on one of the 618 models then you have to use the arbor press to finish disassembly. The outside of the bearing sits in a very very close fit bore in the aluminum housing, which often becomes very difficult to disassemble without heating the aluminum housing. One bearing (top) must be pressed off the shaft and the replacement bearing precisely positioned where the old one was, so you need to measure with an inside snap gage, a dial caliper tail or depth micrometer to assure proper re-positioning. If you don't get it right then the motor shroud will rub the housing and the shaft won't sit right in the lower bearing.

You also need to replace the brushes while you have it apart. Between the labor, brushes and bearings cost you are better off taking it to a DeWalt service center - but even so, the cost to replace the router would usually be less than the service cost if it is out of warranty! Be very careful to make sure if you or anyone does do this job that the replacement bearings are properly rated for high speed - otherwise you'll be doing the job again in a few months of use.

Probably needs to have the bottom bracket rebuilt, new bearings etc. You can get a whole new set but you need the crank tools, so it may be cheaper to have it done for you. Tools are not cheap and you do not use them very often unless you are in business.

Kia Sportage front wheel noise and vibrating

Sounds like a problem I had. Turned out to be the vacumn valve that locks the hubs when in 4wd. The car was not in 4wd but the hubs were always locked causing the wheels to vibrate and chatter especially when turning.

Washer is leaving grease all over my clothes

I have this problem on my front loading washer too, but only when washing white clothes. I have just read that perhaps the inlet hose is disintegrating from the hot water being too hot. The hose disintergration can cause black greasy stains on the clothes. I am going to check out the inlet hose when I get home. Hopefully this is the problem... I am sure a new inlet hose is a lot cheaper than a new transmission or new bearings. BTW, my washer in only 18 months old.

Fixing the Cup

Take the breadmaker to any decent machine shop and show them the problem bearing - these bearings are standard and they will be able to find the right type and size to fit. Actually replacing the bearing is usually pretty easy, although sometimes heat and/or cold etc may need to be applied to get the old one off or new one on. Get them to check there is not also a rubber seal or similar that needs replacing too, as often there will be. Definitely can be fixed if all else is working fine. A new bearing shouldn't be expensive, $5-$20 would be about right and probably it's at the cheaper end of that. If it turns out that the bearing is a special one that they cannot get hold of, see if you can post back with a picture and some measurements, and any writing that is on the side of the bearing itself - hopefully we can source one easily enough online. Hope this helps :)
