Follow these procedures:
Remove the line cord from the power outlet.
Remove the rotor assembly and close and latch the centrifuge cover.
Rest the centrifuge on the edge of the front console and cover.
Remove the bottom cover and the drip pan plate.
Locate the brush caps on the sides of the motor housing.
(6) Unscrew the brush caps and remove the spring and brush assemblies.
Carefully note the orientation of the curved brush surface.
Inspect the brushes and replace if worn to a length of 6.3mm (1/4 inch) or
If the brush is not worn, return it to the same position that you found it.
