contact cleaner for motors

5671 Views 15 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  Screwneck
Any suggestions on what can cheaply, and easily, be purchased to clean the eletrical contacts of motors? i have heard that WD40 can be used, but would like further advice on this.

Any ideas?

Didn't try contact cleaner, eh? I use a precision parts cleaning spray but I think that's only available commercially. As Kai stated, re-oil the bearing surfaces after cleaning.
You can get WD-40 in gallon jugs too, err, non aerosol form
The problem with it is that it makes a mess. It evaporates but it still makes a mess. It can also soften brushes so the motor might run faster for a bit if the brushes weren't seated in to begin with. However, the now soft brushes wear out fairly quickly.
