This item is sold each. If you need a pair to replace both sides on your motor, then please add a quantity of (2) to your cart.
Original OEM factory carbon brush for the model D3A, D2A, D2, and D Rainbow. This brush is installed through the back of the holder and held in place by a plastic cap that screws into the holder.
* SELECT OPTION: This item needs to be "seated" for proper life expectancy. We use a variable transformer (variac) to seat the brushes. If you are unable, we offer this as an optional service.
If you do not seat the motor brushes, you can expect about a one year life before they wear out.

"The brushes I ordered for my parents' Rainbow Model D were very expensive but worked great. Their vacuum worked like new after I replaced them. I did expect a little more wearing from seating for the extra $10 each though."

"Thank you for your fast shipping of the motor brushes. I was able to install the brushes and the vacuum cleaner is working like new again. This vacuum was my parents and they gave it to me over thirty years ago. I think the vacuum is over 40 years old. it has been very reliable. Thanks again."
