$5.06
Carbon Brush/Lead (Sold Individually)
Fix Number FIX10122198
Manufacturer Part Number 22-18-0710
This carbon brush lead or also known as a carbon motor brush fits the following tools: angle grinders, nibbler and shears, sander polishers, and jig saws. This includes the brush and a wire lead attached. This is one of the most commonly replaced power tool components because the carbon brushes easily wear off with friction and use. If your brush is worn out it can cause intermittent motor function, reduction in electric braking, and in motor power. If you notice burns and cracks on the wire lead, then it is best to replace this part. Tip: when replacing your carbon brush, make sure to inspect your armature for damage as well, in case there are larger motor problems.

$15.42
Power Cord
(1)
Fix Number FIX10169875
Manufacturer Part Number 330072-98
This power cord is used for power tools and some of the following tools: electric drills, reciprocating saws, jig saws, biscuit joiners, and routers. The power cord is made for double insulated tools and is a two-wire cord with two prongs, but it does not need a ground wire. If there are cuts in the cord insulation, intermittent power during operation, or damaged and bent prongs, then replacing the power cord will solve the problem. The tools needed for this repair are a Phillips screwdriver, small screwdriver, wire cutters/strippers, crimping tool, and terminal (ring or spade). Repair tip: During installation, remember that new cord wires must go correctly into wire terminals. Also, to avoid pinching when the tool case is put back into place, remember to route cord and wires in the right path.
