    I have the DW735X Type 1 and the same thing happened to mine only I had been using it for just over 3 years. Bought in July of 2020 and warranty ran out by a couple months. I could hear the power output changing and the sound of the motor became different. Then the motor starting smoking real bad and the breaker button tripped. The motor was super hot to the touch. I did the same and ordered a brand new Field, Armature, Bearings and Brushes and rebuilt the motor because there is no Dewalt Service facility anywhere near me. I live in VA Beach, VA and they state there is one is Hampton but when you call them they say they haven’t been repairing tools now for about 2 years and DeWalt needs to update their system. The next nearest to me is in Pennsylvania. DeWalt told me I could ship it and gave me the site to do so but after typing in my model info the site says my tool is not eligible for shipping. I reached out again to Dewalt and they sent me a shipping label to my email which was good. I decided to rebuild it myself but the first Armature I installed went bad within the first 8-10 passes. Just like yours, one of the metal plates raised up and caused a bunch of sparking and a continued loss of power. Fortunately I caught it before it ruined the Field and I ordered another one returning the defective one. It’s working great now after about a month of hassle to get this fixed. I’m overall very happy with Dewalt products and this was my first big hiccup with them/the product. My other small issue was a Hammer Drill. Somehow got stuck in hammer mode and won’t come out of it.
