Not my favorite kind of project. I replaced the bearings in my Craftsman radial arm saw a few years ago but they were both sealed and a common size. There are greases you can buy for electric motor bearings but be careful about mixing grease as they often use a different soap base (the sticky part) that are not compatible. So clean out all the old stuff and start with new. Just google “electric motor grease” to find some.
I would take the bearings to a bearing supplier so they can look them up and measure them for replacements. If you don’t have a bearing supplier near by try auto parts store or a small appliance parts; or carefully measure them yourself and search the internet. For obvious reasons try not to get bearings made in China if you have a choice.
