Thanks for your posting. Did you try Dessalator.com for these brushes? I think this is important to know.
There are 4 brushes on the motor. They are held in place by rubber covers that you unscrew.
I find it easier to bring the motor out of the engine room to work on the brushes.
I cleaned the carbon dust twice in the space of a couple of weeks and eventually replaced the brushes. Looking at the new ones, I noticed the old ones were slightly cracked lengthways, which could have explained why they wouldn’t slide so freely in their housing and would eventually lose conductivity. I guess i could have sanded them down a little to fix the issue.
We sourced the brushes here:
Product code SP1812MC50They’re not cheap (about €15 each) and they had a minimum order of €180 and would onlyship dhl which was €60. The company was a bit of a pain to work with, as they usually only work with companies, not individuals. We got a discount for ordering 3 sets of 4 brushes n springs, and still have a spare one.
Hope that helps

I have the same problem now with the 24v motor not working.
Can you please explain where the brushes are and how to remove them?
