Question about Dewalt Factory-Reconditioned DeWalt DW432R 8 Amp 3-Inch by 21-Inch Belt Sander with Dust Canister
The motor runs and the belt pulleys are fine, but the drive drum for the sanding belt does not turn. I am unable to get the drum off of the sander to determine what is not working properly. I know the nuts are left hand, but they are recessed into the drum itself.
Instead of removing the drum, remove the belt and the cover over the gearbox. The gearbox cover is normaly fixed in place by screws around the drive pulley. There may be a couple of screws under the pulley, if so they can be accessed via holes in the pulley wheel itself. Check for worn or stripped gears. These gears can be replaced if need be, but if this is the case make sure you remove and clean out all the grease first and replace that aswell as it may contain bits of teeth that have come off the faulty gear. As far as I know belt sander drive rollers can not be removed without removing the drive inside the gearbox first.
