The following steps are accompanied by pictures to aid your understanding of
motor brush replacement procedures. Please be aware that the pictures are
standardized and may not match the equipment that you are using. Motor
brush removal and replacement does not change based on motor or brush type, so
do not be confused if your equipment differs from what is pictured.
1. Remove the blower motor from the filter holder. Place on work bench. Remove
the flange by removing the four bolts. This will expose the gasket and the motor.
2. Turn assembly on side, loosen the cord retainer and then push cord into housing
and at the same time let motor slide out exposing the brushes.
3. Looking down at motor. There are 2 brushes, one on each side. Carefully pry the
brass quick disconnect tabs (the tabs are pushed into end of brush) away from
the expended brushes and toward the armature. Try to pry the tabs as far as you
can without damaging the armature.
4. With a screwdriver loosen and remove brush holder clamps and release brushes.
Carefully, pull quick disconnect tabs from expended brushes.
