Question about Garden

Open Question

I have 2 B&D LE750 Edgers, one a type !, & a type 7. Brushes are bad in Type 7. I have found sources for them, to fix the type 7. Two questions: Nobody (including B&D) lists a type 7. Same brushes?

Second question: Sources indicate 2 small "plugs" in the brushes - should they also be replaced? (They're only a buck each, so no biggie). I bought the type 1 at a flea market for the spare parts, but it works OK. Still, I'm kinda OCD, so would like to repair the type 7 anyway - have had it many years.

SOURCE: Bissell 9400 Carpet Cleaner

I have a Bissell 9200 Proheat 2x with same issue.
theres a circuit board in the handle that controls the DC brush motor and a handle release switch near the back wheel. Its either the motor, circuit board or release switch, Ive isolated my brush stoppage to the circuit board by testing. If your handy at all you can test to see what it is. Begin by disassembling the handle by removing several screws, be careful as there will be two different lenghts of screws, inside the handle is the dreaded circuit board brain screwed to the back handle attached with four wires via connector. the grey and black wires go down to the motor and handle release switch (theres a switch that stops the brush motor when you put the handle up in the bottom by the wheel), yellow and red wires are 120 volts form main switch, use a circuit tester to check for voltage from yellow and red and switch to continuity to check if the motor has an open circuit or busted handle switch. I suggest using a digi cam and take pics of disassembly and masking tape to mark hoses if your going to disassemble the bottom. FYI Bissel will not let you order that circuit board but will let you order the motor, I dont know about the switch. Looks like Im going to build my own circuit board from radio shack parts , Im not sending my Bissel back to Bissell, I could go on and on about that LOL.

SOURCE: Unable to get to brushes on DeWalt DW959 drill type 1.

the brushes are made to slide into the side of the motor. gently pull up on them. Also I would recommend that you go to and type in your model number for a parts explosion and part number for replacement brushes. Let me know

Remove rear panel of washer.
Remove drive belt.
Unscrew the 2 bolts that hold motor to tub back.
Remove motor plug
Lever notor back with a screwdriver or similar, keeping a firm hold on motor.and remove motor
At the rear end of motor away from pulley you will see the brushes and the armature.
Remove brushes, and if there is less than 4 or 5mm of carbon left, then replace them.
Lightly clean the armature with emery cloth.
Refit in reverse order. Test.
Plz rate my solution.

SOURCE: My motor brushes at end

Try Platt Electrical supply - 800-257-5288 ( 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!

Problem with my B&D LE500 lawn edger. Will run good then quits. pressing trigger several times edger starts. may keep running or quit. are there points or something electrial that could be problem?

Check the switch, it could burnout. The trigger switch made on this model are very cheap and can not supply current to motor for a long time without burning out. So it could be that switch has melted, and plastic is covering parts of the terminal.
