Motor Brush Kit (set of 2)
Fits all Better Packages gummed tape dispenser motors. If all you need are motor brushes, order two sets and tape the extra set inside the motor cover to save on shipping.
When brushes are worn down and stop making proper contact, the motor will stop completely. This is evident when you turn your machine on, press a button, and only hear a click and faint buzz.
Most motors are designed to only operate when both brushes are in contact with the motor. If the brushes are too worn down, or the brushes wear and get "stuck", you may have this issue. It is uncommon to completely wear down the motor brushes. Generally you still have a little bit of carbon left on the brushes when replacement is required.
Note: When replacing motor brushes, make sure the curve of the brush matches the curve of the motor armature. When reinstalling the motor caps, use very little torque as the caps are plastic. If you torque the cap too much, you risk breaking the plastic threading off, and you will need to replace the entire motor.
