Makita Multi-Tool Repair – Replacing the Terminal Block (Makita Part # 654532-5)

“The terminal block is a connector that is
used to join two wires together. It makes it easier to replace other components
in the tool due to the ease of disconnecting the wires. The terminal block can be melted or damaged
by short-circuiting the tool. The screws can be damaged while tightening
or loosening them. Replacing the terminal block is a repair that
you can do yourself, and I’m going to show you how. Advertisement: Hi, I’m Mark Sodja. Do-it-yourself repairs like these are easier
than you might think. From lawn machines to cordless drills, kitchen
mixers, outdoor grills, our how-to videos walk you through each repair from start to
finish, so doing it yourself means never having to do it alone. Let’s get started. Mark: I’ll begin by removing the rear cover
from the tool. With the cover removed, I have access to the
terminal. First, I’ll pull the pink controller wire
away from the terminal. Now, I can remove the terminal from the housing,
and I’ll disconnect the wires. Now, I can install the new terminal. I’ll make sure the screws are backed out and
reconnect the wires. I’ll place the terminal back into the housing
and route the pink controller wire around it. Now, I’ll reinstall the rear housing
and secure it with the screw. That’s all it takes to replace the terminal
block in your power tool. Advertisement: Be sure to check back often
