Carbon Brush
Fix Number FIX10116513
Manufacturer Part Number N031652
This brush is a genuine Porter-Cable replacement part, not generic. As pictured, this brush is ready to install and includes carbon brush, wire lead, and spring. This item is sold individually. Over time, brushes will wear down and eventually require replacement. This brush will fit the models listed in the 'Compatibility' section below. It is not guaranteed to fit any other power tool models. • Worn brushes are often the cause of a poorly running motor • Replacing brushes can fix an intermittent motor • New brushes can restore a motor’s electric braking Carbon motor brushes are one of the most commonly replaced power tool components. Because carbon brushes are wear items, meaning that through friction and use they will gradually wear away, they will eventually require replacement. Worn brushes are common causes of intermittent motor function, reduced electric braking, and reduced motor power. A worn out brush will often be worn down near the wire lead and may be cracked, pitted, or burned. When replacing carbon brushes, be sure to also inspect your armature for burns, cracks, or other damage which indicates a larger motor problem.

On/Off Switch- 120V – Part Number: A22756
On/Off Switch- 120V
Fix Number FIX10115476
Manufacturer Part Number A22756
This part is a 120V rocker type OEM switch with two terminals, sold individually. It has a compact design, which makes the installation process much easier. The switch controls the on and off function as well as the variable speed. It usually becomes apparent that the switch is malfunctioning if the tool will not turn on, works intermittently, or the variable speed or electric braking are not working. Switch replacements are common on power tools, especially after years of use. If you suspect a faulty switch, test it with a multimeter. Installation and removal of this part may vary depending on the model. For most routers you will need to remove the motor cap from the motor, and then the wires from the switch to remove it.
