parts -brushes 48629281 Craftsman 18" electric dethatcher

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. I regret to hear that you are having issues with your power rake 
and do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. Im looking at your model number 48629281 and sometimes the manufacturer will list a model number for motor as well. If the motor does not list or have a model number stamped on it, it is not serviceable and will need to replace the entire motor. I have included a link to our PartsDirect page where you can purchase the part you need to complete your repair. Just click the blue link above to be taken to the page. If you have further questions please resubmit your question for further information.
 
Thank you for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com.

Did you read my question? I came from the parts page...(how else would I know there is no listing for motor brushes) To replace the motor with an equally bad one for 80 bucks plus tax plus shipping is not economic. The motor is obviosly serviicable or I would not be trying to obtain brushes!!!! I have now ground down some generic brushes to fit the motor. No further help required. Thank you.

Please list part number for the brushes,mine too also crumbled, and are more servicable then many other motors that you can buy brushes for, so why don't you sell them? Its a defect in brush holder on the end of armature shaft. The brushes don't ride properly on the commutator bar due to the plastic on bottom restricting the brush being able to put all its pressure on bar. Mine smoked after 2nd use, and of course the 2nd time used it was after the year mark, probably 1-2 hours the first time using them 1-2 hours the next time. The motor is china junk. I had to grind down a larger pair myself, but they are not as meaty as i'd like for them to be. I put some brush grease on them this time which makes a world of difference since the original ones had 0. All to save 5 cents. I've been dealing with rebuilding motors for over 25 years, and don't see why parts are not available for it? If you don't want to sell the parts for it. then leave the manufactures info on it so they can be acquired from the source, but wait then people will find out they can buy the whole motor for 20 instead of 80. It all just boils down to greed.

A:

If my memory serves me correct, after the screws are removed, the box will still have to popped apart. I believe that there are snapping tabs on the inside of the box that still hold it together even with the screws taken out. Use a small slot tipped screwdriver to see if you can work it around the edges and pop the box apart.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
