What is DC Motor?
A DC motor is an electrical motor that uses direct current to produce mechanical force. The most common types rely on magnetic forces produced by currents in the coils.

Are DC motors expensive?
DC motors generally cost significantly more than AC motors due to their higher manufacturing costs. Also, because AC induction motors have such widespread use, economies of scale contribute to their relatively lower price.
How long will a DC motor last?
Brushed motor life is limited by the brush type and can attain 1,000 to 3,000 hours on average, while brushless motors can attain tens of thousands of hours on average, as there are no brushes to wear.
Can a DC motor be repaired?
In some cases, repairs can be made but, sometimes, rewinding is necessary to achieve acceptable motor performance.
If rewinding isn’t necessary, then the issue may be mechanical in nature or a build-up of carbon dust that can be addressed by steam cleaning and baking the field coils or armature.
