Replacing The Brushes In A Makita

Business When the time .es to replace the brushes in your Makita drill, don’t fret my friends, the process is really quite simple. Too simple in fact to even require introduction so I’ll simply cut straight to the chase. You should peruse the drill’s manual for the information about your brushes, where they’re located, or any other helpful specs you can find. You need also to be certain you’ve got the correct brushes for your particular drill. As most drills take different brushes, its important you replace yours with the correct set. Lastly, before we actually begin, make absolutely certain the drill has been .pletely, absolutely, and totally disengaged. As we move on to actually finding our brushes, the chase begins. Most Makita drills will offer very simple access to the brushes. Unless your model is of the particularly old variety, you will have either a rear cover or brush caps. A rear cover is a dome-shaped piece of the drill housing at the very rear of the drill that can be removed without .pletely disassembling the housing. Removing the rear cover should plainly expose the brushes. Brush caps will be on either side of the drill, also near its rear. They are, again, small pieces of the housing (about one square inch in size (give or take) that are usually black in color (or some shade different from the whole of the housing)) that when removed will take you straight to the brushes. If you don’t have brush caps or a rear cover on your drill, you will need to open-up the drill’s housing or clamshell. Keep in mind when removing anything from the tool though, that you will soon have to replace it; keeping organized is very important for reassembly. After removing the top half of the housing, the brushes should be located at the at the back of the motor in the rear of the drill. The brushes will be tucked into a guide sleeve. Remove them from the guide sleeve and replace the new ones in exactly the same fashion as the others were removed. Your brushes should be making solid contact with the armature and just like that, the chase is essentially .plete. Carefully put the drill back together and re-engage it for the final step of the procedure. Test all the functions of the drill; run it in forward and reverse, change the gears if you have the capability, drive a screw or drill a hole and make sure all has .e back together properly. You have officially and successfully .pleted your brush replacement process if all functions check out. However, if all things don’t check out, you should retrace your steps to ensure no minor mistakes climb out of the woodwork. If no mistake apparent, take the drill to an authorized Makita service center for a .plete diagnosis. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
