A lot of times sawdust gets into the switch contacts and won't allow the tool to operate. I would try turning the switch on/off several times and see if it temporarily helps. Also check the cord. Let me know if you need more assistance.

How do I turn it on


Should be a switch on the bottom near where the cord goes in. If not then it must be an older model. Providing more information results in more thorough and accurate answers. If that switch does not turn the sander on then something in the electrical circuit is damaged, possible a broken switch. They are replaceable with just a little mechanical skill.

I have a power devil belt sander, but every time i turn it on for use the belt works its way off... i bought this sander second hand at a boot sale so im thinking is there supposed to be an outside guide...


no there is not anything missing, you need to adjust the belt by turning the black plastic adjuster knob which guides the belt to the left. I have found that whilst using the sander you sometime need to adjust it further. If you adjust it too much the belt will hit and grind the plastic casing of the sander.

Also make sure you are using the correct size belt as it should be size 75X533 which you can buy from Toolstation for £2.78 a pack of 5.

We rented a sander to sand our pool deck. it worked at first but now won't budge. it turns on but can't even push it forward.


Hello Radlad84,

There are few things you can look at.First see inside the sander if it full of dust and then clean it .
Second look for the brushes inside .they should have a proper length.
Good luck.

How do I adjust an older model 360 sander to keep the belt running stright? I've been trying to adjust the knob on the side but it does not make any difference whch way I turn it the belt runs to the...


Ah. The knob may be way out of adjustment. Since the you've damaged a belt already, use it as a test belt to get the knob back to where it should be. Unfortunately there is no easy solution - it will require some trial-and-error.

Hope this helps.

How do I adjust the porter cable sander so that the belt runs stright?


The porter cable belt sanders have an adjustment knob (threaded screw with a black plastic t-nut on the end). The knob adjusts the angle of one of the rollers and thus the tracking of the belt. The know takes very little adjustment to change the belt's tracking.

Is the know perhaps missing? You can get replacement parts for for porter cable tools at www.servicenet.com.

Hope this helps.

Belt won't stay on belt sander


Check first that you have retensioned the belt... i.e. when you removed the other belt, you would have had to pull on a spring-loaded lever to remove the belt tension before you added the new one... make sure the tension lever is flipped back in to ensure the new belt is tensioned...

Next, and the likely problem you are having, is belt tracking... There should be an adjustment knob up near the front of the sander near the front roller, either on top of the front part of the sander, or to the side near the front roller... When you turn this knob, it makes the belt track either left or right over the sander's base. This knob will allow your belt to run square and true and not spin off to one side...You need to adjust the tracking using this knob while the belt sander is running and with the new belt tensioned and in place, so turn the sander upside down, and power it on with one hand, then turn the knob with the other hand whichever way is needed to have the belt track square and in the middle of the rollers. Make small adjustments on the tracking knob to begin with. They can be sensitive at times.

That should stop your belt spinning off to one side.

Belt sander adjustment


There should be a knob on the front of the sander which adjusts the front roller on the sander. If the belt runs off in the same direction each time try turning the knob as the sander is running and while watching the belt. If turning the knob one direction does not work try turning the other direction. If turning the knob does not have any affect on the way the belt tracks on the sander then you probably have a broken or missing part on the front of the sander. This may require taking the sander to a service center.
