try to rig the nozzle of a shop vac to the part where the bag would normally connect and run the sander simultaneously with vac for a few minutes and see if that helps

SOURCE: porter cable 352vs belt sander wont run....

The very first thing I would check is the condition of the motor's brushes. I'd bet just about anything that they're just worn down passed the limit length. I have the same model PC belt sander... and have used it to do that very same task... I came upon your query because I'm shopping for new brushes. This is a very easy fix by the way.

SOURCE: I have a Porter Cable 352VS Type 4 sander needs bearings.

You need special pullers for these, you will have to take it to a power tool repair shop.

SOURCE: After installing new belt, on Porter Belt Sander

There is a tracking adjustment knob on the side of the sander--adjust one way or the other until it tracks properly. This is something that will change by itself as the sander is being used--check periodically.

SOURCE: Porter Cable 362 belt sander - the paper slips off

there might be a buildup of sawdust in the tensioning mechanism or the yoke might be bent. I would look at excess buildup in the mechanism first. there are 3 screws on the outside of the tool so you can remove the assembly as a whole. try and clean as thoroughly as possible. the mechanism should move freely and "snap" when lever released.

Please help me find a free owners manual for my porter cable 352vs belt sander


The ServiceNet site has the manual for most Porter Cable power tools here: http://servicenet.portercable.com/ . The 352VS documentation is here: http://servicenet.portercable.com/Products/Detail/352VS . Look in the right hand column for the Instruction Manual; you'll see an option to download a PDF or have the manual sent by email. However, you need to look at the sander and attempt to find the Type number. This will be on the label with the model and serial number. There are 7 different belt sanders that were released with the 352VS model number. Use this number to get the details for your sander. The direct link to the manual for the Type 1 version, today, is http://servicenet.portercable.com/Products/GetDocument?docName=EnA00111.pdf&productId=55856&productType=12187&documentId=32863&translatedFileName=http://documents.dewalt.com/documents/English/Instruction%20Manual/Porter-Cable/EnA00111.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Porter cable 352vs manual


My Porter Cable 352vs Belt Sander was clogged from sanding epoxy, wet wood, something like that. No dust collection at all.
I had to remove 4 screws on the housing, one screw under the front handle and another below the rear handle. The housing came out very easily (with a little wiggle). Pay very close attention to where the position of your plastic fan housing sits. It will only be installed in one spot.
http://www.ereplacementparts.com/images/porter_cable/352_TYPE_1.pdf
The pdf diagram was not exactly correct on the housing placement.
Once opened, The wood and epoxy were caked in everyplace. I brushed them out and replaced the screws.

Good as new.

Good luck.

Have a porter cable 352vs 3"x21" belt sander. was using it and blue sparks started occuring in the rotor and brush assembly. kept using as I needed to try and finish my project. No longer...


this tool has various type numbers but I checked on the type 5-6 and came up with the same number. the brush number I found is NO30461 and they run from around 3.50 to 4.00 each. If you have removed the brushes if the spring is burnt/collapsed it could have been from a loose brush cap or worse an armature problem. Before I sent it out for repair I would look at the brushes, UNPLUG tool first and remove them after removing look into the brush holder and see if the commutator (part of armature you can see) and see if it is discolored or other obvious imperfections. You can buy replacement brushes online from "ereplacementparts.com" or direct from "dewaltservicenet.com". Let me know if you need more assistance before voting and thank you.

How do you replace the drive belt on a Porter Cable Belt Sander


There is a lever on the side at the front right near the roller that you can use to release the spring tension on that roller (moving it slightly to the rear).  Once the tension is released you can slip the sanding belt onto both rollers from the side.  Release the lever and the spring will put tension on the belt to hold it in place.  Use the knob on the left side to center the belt on the roller if it starts to slip sideways when in use.
