You should really take it back to place of purchase and get it replaced/fixed under waranty. If you try anything other than checking the fuse you will invalidate the warranty. Most manufacturers allow retailers to replace faulty tools within seven days of purchase. Be sure to take your receipt with you as a copy will be needed for the shops warranty claim.

Makita orbital sander does not orbit with new pad


there is bit more to the pad than just attachment surface, please have look at this page: http://www.ereplacementparts.com/makita-bo5041-random-orbit-sander-parts-c-97_103_119063.html

your description suggest that there is no connection between pad and clutch, i would recommend to study the drawing, dismantle machine again and put it together again. where appropriate, use grease (i would suggest use of ptfe (teflon) dry spray grease on all moving surfaces and bearings), after service, use lowest possible settings, (disconnect filter! it is useless - use external vacuum if possible, connect to the pipe where filter was attached.) increase settings every minute or so till you have maximum.

lower the settings to your operational requirement and use as usual.

hope this will help you solve thsi little problem, if you find this answer helpful - do not forget to say so...

What is happening to my Dewalt DW421 spinning fast, but no random orbiting motion.


Probably need to replace bearing 6202. I took mine apart, dissambled the retainer and used PB Blaster on the bearing. It seems to be a short term fix. At least it's not operating at hyper speed anymore. Long term, I probably need to replace the bearing and maybe a new lower retainer if I can't press the bearing out.

My 5" random orbit sander model 333 is spinning out of control. What do I do?


I may not have the whole picture, but all random orbits spin wildly if they are not pressed onto the wood a little. Do you mean it is not oscellating, but just spinning when it is on the wood? That would be an issue requiring cleaning or repair, otherwise, just don't turn it on until you have placed it on the wood to avoid marring.

Orbital sander doesnt orbit!


Never start the Sander without first placing it against the surface to be sanded. In free air the Sander will not osolate.

Porter Cable Random Orbital Sander rotates but does not "orbit"


Just solved my problem with Porter Cable 333 orbital sander which just groaned. I thought the worst. I carefully took it apart on the garage floor and immediately suspected it needed lubrication as the motor turned hard. I used my flexible long plastic tube lubrication and put some on the bottom bearing shaft the best I could. I worked it around and around. I began to feel it turning easier. I applied more oil and kept moving and it became completely free. I put a drop on the top bearing even though it was loose. I put it all back together and it works like new. Lesson: do not look for the worst when a tool quits. Suspect the culprit to be lack of lubrication!!!

Makita 5" Random Orbit Sander


The armature windings have an overlay problem in the wiring causing this and there is no soluation except to replace the armature which is not cost efective unless you are still under Warrantee and get a free replacement, it will burn up at some point. If you bought it within the last month take it back and get a new one, over one month, pack it back up in the original box and send it to address in the owners manual for repair or replacement service addresses.
