Strange beasts these GS100'S, they need constant TLC to maintain their spectacular performance capability. Eumig's just mind their own business and keep chugging along! [Smile]

That internal arc you mention will be down to the gummy commutator in contact with the brushes. Cleaning/scraping carefully out the build up between each segment on that commutator is very important for that motor to run properly. If you remove the two screws on the back of the motor, you can remove the rear cover with its brushes to gain access to those two brushes and most importantly the commutator itself. To put back together, use a couple of cotton buds with the ends cut off to gently compress both brushes as you slide the rear cover back on.

The motor does not need to be removed and the job can be done in a hour or so. The last time I did this was to both motors in place and never had any more problems since.

The diameter of the commutator is incredibly small and wears out badly due to the small dia of it...its real dinky toy stuff. Hopefully you still have life in the commutator and a good clean/ polish up with fine 600 wet and dry plus the doing the segments will give you a few more years out of the motor....its well worth doing.
