They may be burnt and jammed - carefully break them into pieces with a screwdriver (being careful not to damage the brass brush tubes or the copper armature at the end) using compressed air, blow the pieces out and clean the tubes.
Use a flashlight to look down the tubes and inspect the armature as well - if the brushes are burnt into the tubes there may also be damage to the armature.

SOURCE: Bosch 4000 table saw won't work

OK sounds like you are handy. You have electric to the brush tubes? (first unplug saw to test) If yes then I would remove the brushes to see if they were making contact with the commutator. Does the blade spin freely? If not you might have a bearing problem. I would again use air after removing the brushes and then reinsert making sure they seat on the armature. If still nothing then if you are comfortable I would pull the motor housing. But before pulling go to Bosch Tools website and downloading a breakdown of your saw. Let me know if I can help

Ok, the motor turns, but throws sparks on the brushes. This is normal to an extent for universal motors used on that type of equipment.

Try reassembling the saw, and put a blade on it, then try it. If it runs, try cutting a piece of scrap 1x, both crosscut & rip. If the motor can't hold the load, you may still have to replace it.

SOURCE: New or used motor for a Craftsman 10" table saw

You can try Sears but they can be a bit pricey. I use to send out motors for a factory I worked in to a rebuilder who would even do new windings. Check in your area for a rebuilder, As for the replacement being a Sears unit they may have a similar motor in stock. Good luck.

SOURCE: Bosch 4000 table saw disassembly

turn the motor housing slightly until you can put a screwdriver between the housing and diaphragm, pull on the one side and push with the driver and it will come apart, I just did one yesterday. To get the armature out of the fan bearing you will need a dead blow hammer to tap on the diaphragm while pulling on the armature. The bearing is held in place with 2 screws, hope this helps.

We just purchased a 2003 mini cooper. It has 46k on it and it runs and drives well. It has an auto transmission 6-speed that also can be shifted

Because the window always stops in the same place, the motor does too. After a few years iot can start to jam in that position. Simply expose the window motor and give it a sharp tap while operating the switch. If that solves it then try to turn the motor round by a few degrees so that it stops in a slightly different place.

Your belt may be stretched and is slipping on the motor pulley.Belt tension pulley may be sticking. May be a bad lint buildup on the blower wheel.
And yes, finally, maybe a bad motor.
