What have you been sanding? Make sure the sander is unplugged. Remove the dust collector bag and use a flexible wire, like a coat hanger, to free the clogged material from the dust tube. Replace bag and sand away! Hope this solution works for you. Michael Mittelsdorf

SOURCE: Porter Cable belt sander
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

could be a couple things but I am going to guess the switch is contaminated and keeps tool from running. The switch number is A22667 and lists for 2.81. What you can do to find out possibly is hold tool up and in rapid sequence turn tool on and off and sometimes it will move enough dirt to operate. Let me know if you need any more assistance

Shane, it's not the sander that is the problem. This is a difficult machine to use, even for those who have been in the trade for years. The trick is to keep the head moving, and apply vary little pressure. Sorry I didn't find you sooner, but I just found this site 2 weeks ago.I'm sure you have already painted by now but your best bet would be to purchase a manual pole sander. If you have any other drywall questions, or know anyone who does, feel free to ask.

I also have had this problem and I found that if I hold the unit tightly and squeeze the plastic housing the RPM's will stabilize as the unit warms up. Best fix is to replace the rubber isolators that prevent vibrations from the motor from reaching the plastic housing. The isolators have become hard through age or very cold temperatures.
I read somewhere that keeping the sander stored in a warm room can also help because when the rubber is very cold it becomes hard.
