Check to see that the slip rings are smooth and have not separated from the potting material. Proper brush alignment is important to prevent the brush from grounding and to maximize brush life. 1. Make sure that each carbon brush is adjusted so that it is centered on its respective slip ring. 2. The brush modular assembly should be positioned so that it sits at a 2 degree angle lagging the direction of rotation, and 1/16” away from the slip ring at its closest point.
