I have a craftsman Tablesaw that a bearing went out on.
I changed the bearing and it works but it looks like one of the brushes didn't seat and it is arking is there any way to make them seat, the motor is running hot and not at full power ??

Are the brushes original? Did you take them out when changing the bearing? If the brushes are new, they can be seated with seating compound, available at a good electric motor repair shop. It may be due to a stuck brush in its' holder, a bad commutator, an oil-soaked brush, bad armature, etc...

Could it be that the brush got installed the wrong way, or the brush tension spring fell out during re-assembly?
