Dewalt DW343 repair

Hi!

The jigsaw in the subject started sporadically and stopped abruptly every now and then. I disassembled it and tried to fix the power cord connection and the switch. Both of them though worked properly. However, when I removed the control PCB while checking the switch I realized that there are three wires leading to the motor. The two on the sides are clearly main power, but the third one in the middle (the black one) was somehow fitted on the motor as well. While I was removing the PCB the black wire has loosened revealing the small brass spring (?) on the second picture. I tried for a while but could not figure out how to fit them back. I tried to connect the black wire directly to the third terminal (on top, first picture) but the motor didn't start and the brushes started burning. Is it some kind of a start provisioning? Any idea on how to put it back?

Check your model number again. I can't find the breakdown for that one.

Hi! The designation is correct, but it is probably sold with different designations in different regions. Mine is bought in Sweden.
