Hi Pete:
Without knowing what make and model it is, I can only suggest that you methodically start to dis-assemble it. Keep track of how you proceeded. Keep track of the parts, and what gets connected to what so that you can re-assemble it without too many problems.
SAFETY HINT! Remove the splark plug.
QUESTION??? What happened to cause it to seize?
Will try to help you through this.

How to remove rear wiper motor on 2009 chev uplander


The rear wiper motor is accessed under the trim panel on the rear gate. You need to remove the panel ideally with the help of a panel removal tool (like a long flat screwdriver with a notch in the end and a bend in the shaft) or you can also make a flat screwdriver work while -carefully- pulling on the trim. You also need to remove the strap used for closing the tailgate using a star/torx. If you don't have one, it is possible altho not likely you can get a good flat screwdriver to fit and work. The wiper motor itself is held in by 3 bolts on the inside and by 1 large nut on the outside. You need to remove the wiper arm (remove the cap at the shaft, remove the nut, pull off the wiper arm) and proceed to remove the large nut securing the shaft to the body panel. Your motor may be seized and you may be able to fix it. The shaft corrodes to the housing so you would have to soak it in penetrating oil and try to get the shaft out of the housing by driviing and twisting it out (being careful not to ruin the threads). Once you get it out, you need to smooth down the corrosion surfaces and grease it up for reassembly. Check the plastic gear first to ensure it is still usable or it the metal has worn it down too much.

How to remove armature in makita 5806B


Removed the three screws to release the motor housing from the blade housing. If the the armature stays in the motor case then try tapping the edge of the open end of the housing with a soft mallet. If it still won't move hole the end of the armature in a vice using SOFT JAWS and then tap the edge of the housing to remove the motor case.

It might be that the rear bearing has siezed in the housing.

My pump waunt turn on it hums for a few seconds and then turns off it get hot pretty quick any thoughts


Most likely either bad start capacitor, or seized motor. First determine if the motor shaft can spin free. Best way is to access shaft from tail of motor. Depending on the motor, there should be either round cap or plug to access rear of shaft, or a plastic housing removed by a couple screws. If the motor spins free then it is most likely the start capacitor or start windings. If it's the windings it's pretty much shot. The capacitor is either under the big metal hump protruding from the side of the motor, or in the tail end with the wiring. Either way it looks like a black or silver canister. To check the capacitor you need a special capacitance meter or an analog ohm meter. let me know if you need more help on that or checking motor windings (below). Replacing the start cap is cheap ($10-$20) compared to a new motor. If you remove or check the capacitor remove the wires carefully and discharge the capacitor by shorting the two leads. you can check the motor windings by using an ohm meter, but you must remove the power first. That means you need to physically disconnect the wires, not just turn of power. If your not familiar with this best to have a shop test it. Motors can have multiple sets of windings for different voltages, and start vs run. If the motor does not spin freely, then either the bearings are seized up or something may be lodged in the impeller locking it up. you can split the pump in two be removing the large clamp or 4-6 bolts holding the two halves together. if you have a pinacle then it should be 6 bolts. (not the 4 bolts holding the motor to seal plate, but the the bolts holding the seal plate to the seal plate housing. once you remove the clamp or bolts, the motor with seal plate and impeller and diffuser can all be pulled back away from the pump. You need to remove the diffuser (plastic housing that goes around the impeller) usually by a series of 3 to 6 small screws. Now you can easily try and spin the impeller and check for obstructions that might have bound it up, and get a better idea of the condition of the motor bearings. you can also turn the power on and see if it spins. If the impeller looks good but the motor is seized up or hard to turn and/or feels very rough. you may be able to have a motor pool pump shop rebuilt it for 1/2 to 2/3 the cost of a new motor, but I usually recommend a new motor. you may want to replace the diffuser and valute (the big seal) o-rings when you put it together. if you split the seal plate from the motor you will also need to replace the shaft seal.

Sprayer not functioning


You can disassemble the unit and check to see if the pump motor has seized.

the motor has a black, red and green wire attached, is encased in a plastic housing, and is right next to the vacuum assembly. Don't cut the line attached to the plastic housing, you don't need to and it can be a pain to reattach later. just slide the whole white housing up towards the black vacuum assembly, and undo the wire leads attached to the motor, they just pull off (make sure it's not plugged in) making sure to note which wire attaches to which lead... i marked each lead with a colored marker to be sure.

Use a pair of pliers to turn the drive shaft if it has seized, and be sure not to lose the small rubber o-ring that sits around the shaft. Lubricate at the base where the drive shaft meets the motor with just a drop of 3-in-1 electric motor oil and then reassemble the housing, attach the leads, seat the motor back into the seating (make sure the bottom nozzle goes into the green water feed coupler!) and reassemble the case.

worked like a cham for me and i saved $10

worked well for me, if it still doesn't work you could buy a new pump and install it. they go for around $10 on ebay and amazon.com

Rear wiper motor does not work


It is possible to fix the problem; it is not the motor itself - the shaft/housing gets corroded and eventually seizes. Remove the wiper and bolts from the outside and the panel on the inside. Remove the wiper motor, take the screws out and open the motor. Put as much solvent as you can into the shaft area and let it soak. Put the nut back on the the end of the shaft and tap the shaft loose as far as it will go - us a punch in the center of the shaft so you don't screw up the threads. Remove the nut and continue to twist and tap the shaft out. It is possible the corrosion was very bad nad the housing is now cracked or worse by forcing the shaft out of that area. You will need to determine whether it is still ok for use. As long as there is a good amount of meat for the shaft to run in, it should be ok. Also - the nut still has to go on the end of the housing. You will also have to look at the big plastic gear and ensure it is still good - the metal worm gear may have grinded it down too far depending on how many times it has cycled. Once its out, its straight forward to clean and smooth down the shaft and housing, load up the whole thing with lithium grease and reassemble. If it proves to be pointless along the way, no haven't lost anything and would have had to remove the unit to replace it anyways.

Finding the location of the blower motor


First, remove the glove box...easy three screws total. Two on the bottom, and one holding the shock on the right side. Second, remove the metal bar that is behind the glove box...four phillips screws. Third, remove the two bolts securing the dash on the right side. Fourth, remove the small RH kick plate...pull hard it has three clips. Fifth, remove the two screws on the bottom of the fan housing and remove the bottom diffuser...small plastic peice. Sixth, remove the front center metal clip and remove this small plastic piece. Seventh, pull the carpet back on the passenger side and remove the four nuts securing the computer to the floor board and swing it out to the left. Next, disconnect the neg terminal on the battery and remove the three plugs that were near the RH kick plate. Now comes the fun part. The dash will be hindering the removal of the blower motor housing. First, remove the metal band securing the blower motor housing and the heater core housing together. It's one 10mm bolt at the top. This band clips to another band securing the two housing together on the back side. You will also need to remove the two small phillips screws securing the rear band to the blower motor housing...one on the top and one on the bottom. The rear band gets in the way when removing the housing. So when the housing assembly drops remove the rear band from the top...set this part in first on installation. Last, remove the four 10mm nuts securing the blower motor housing to the firewall. The housing will not fall to the floor on its own. You will need to pull up and out on the bottom of the dash while guiding the housing assembly down and to the left. Be careful not to pull agressively on the dash. It's strudy, but will crack if you are too rough. ALSO FOLLOW THIS LINK BELOW http://www.autozone.com/servlet/UiBroker?ForwardPage=/az/cds/en_us/0900823d/80/0d/0d/63/0900823d800d0d63.jsp

Pump disassembly


I removed the impeller on my DW761UQB. The instructions were molded into the plastic pump housing. This is how I DID MINE: Remove motor mount screws. Remove the chopper screw (screw only goes into impeller, not motor shaft). Remove chopper and rotate/remove strainer. Place socket or wrench on impeller tip and place another wrench on rear of motor's plastic fan. Unscrew fan from impeller shaft ( threads are LEFT handed, turn CW). Once fan is 'backed off' of the impeller, CAREFULLY pry the motor/fan from pump housing (impeller is attached to motor shaft via splines). Don't crack the delicate plastic pump housing. Mine was stuck, but separated with moderate force. Now remove the impeller/seals from the pump housing. This worked for MY above mentioned model, I don't know what other models it applies to. I am not a pro.

How can i remove the carbon brushes to check if they need renewed.I have a Hotpoint Aquarious model no WMA34. Much appreciated Chris


you will need to remove the motor, Isolate the supply by unplugging the machine, remove the rear panel, slacken the motor fixing bolts, remove the drum belt, now remove the motor bolts and drop out the motor, un-plug the motor connections.
The brushes are at the rear usually housed in plastic one on each side, disconnect the single wire and carefully remove the housing (2 torx screws), taking care not to break or loose the brush as it is spring loaded,a typical new brush will protrude 30-40mm from the housing a worn brush will be much shorter 8-15mm and just make contact with the motor commutator. replace if necessary, check the comm for wear, refit in the reverse order.
