Motor brush spring does anyone know how to fix it

Hi does anyone know how to fix this brush motor spring or where I can get them. Can I make my own?

my initial thought would be from a crappy donor motor.

you probably could make one but it would be fiddly af and then there’s a reliability question

Check out ebay mate. They’re relatively cheap just need to wait about 4 days for delivery but they’ve got a pretty good range to choose from.

hahahaa…but that they are available on ebay is something i’ll be parking away for later


Or you can maybe use a spring from a click pen n solder it on yourself.

How did you go with your spring problem mate??

I used some from my standard motors but the spring keeps breaking


I have never had one of those springs break before

It actually burnt out (it glowed red hot and broke) - I’ve used springs from stock motors I think 3 motors I’ll get a picture of them. I might check out jaycar as well

Check the brush shunt wires, they should be carrying the current not the brush springs


Ok I’ll check it out thanks

You are right seems current going through brush springs
