Not that I would think, you have either an electrical or bearing problem. If you can remove the cover where the brushes are look at the condition and length and also look at the commutator for discoloration between the bars. It sounds like you need to take motor apart before it causes major damages if not already

While baking there was a spark and smoke that blew out the breaker

Sometimes there are two breakers, one for the 110v and one for the 230v. The 110v works the light and the clock and such, and the 230v handles the heater elements. If the breaker blew, you might need a repair though. Also always be careful when working with electricity please.

Had low battery...charged and re-installed. wire running from positive to circuit breaker started to I have no juice when I turn on the key..I pulled the circuit breaker and tried to short to...

You've got a dead short somewhere. First test everything you can with an ohm meter. Pull all the fuses out and measure the resistance from the circuit breaker ot ground. Check the outer case of the circuit breaker as well. I have seen them go bad and create a short circuit themselves.

Good Luck

How do I drain the gear oil from a Bosch Brute Jack Hammer

Brute hammer uses special grease sold as service kit. This kit contains enough grease to lube hammer and replacement bolts that hold springs along the bottom. Check for parts and kit. Remove the lower half (tube) of hammer, also remove three bolts that hold springs and remove assembly from tube. Wash out old grease. Grease will be oil-like only when hammer is very hot, otherwise grease is paste-like. Good luck.

We have a couple of brutes that hit slow, I've tried rebuild kits, field coils and armatures. None of these seem to work. Amp drawn normal. Any Ideas???

Sounds like you have too much suction in the hammer cylinder. The hammer may be getting stuck at the top of the cylinder. Inspect to see if the hammer beat piece will slide out of the hammer cylinder. There may be too much grease behind the hammer causing suction at the up stroke. There may also be scarring inside, so inspect to see if the hammer beat piece slides smoothly. Hope this helps.
