Motors and abrasives don't ever mix. What is likely to have happened is either there is a lot of dust in there or the motor brushes have worn.

Unplug (obviously - but some people!)
Remove belt and other removable parts, then open up case by undoing screws.
The motor armature (copper bands) may show signs of blacking if the brushes have worn.
Check rotation of motor to see if it's stiff.
If it seems free enough, clean out all parts with a small paintbrush & blow clear.
Order a set of brushes for that model and fit them.
They are sprung loaded to contact the armature, so can be a bit fiddly. Check contacts and rotation when refitted.
Keep all screws in an ice cube container - and the whle lot in a box while spares arive - as things get lost all too easily!

Try Platt Electrical supply - 800-257-5288 (Platt.com) BLACK & DECKER #89754-01 REPLACEMENT BRUSH. It seems the entire motor head was manufactured by DeWalt and is now obsolete. I don't know if these brushes will fit, but someone there may help.
Good Luck!

Is powerfile out of business? I need service on Powerfile R200BD.


Yes, PowerFile is officially out of business and their assets have been sold to a foreign company that has no plans to support the install base or continue with the product. Kodak was their support provider and may be able to help you for an additional fee.

If you want to disucss more contact me at dxodus@gmail.com.

My Black & Decker mouse is now making a louder than usual noise and the base does not vibrate as it used to. What could be wrong?


possibly a bearing is seizing up causing the motor to slow down and therefore less vibration. You can try Dewaltservicenet.com for a breakdown or to find a repair center.
