No, it doesnt sound good. These machines don't have clutches but it could be a problem with the gears or gear lock. You shlould really take it back to where you bought it and get it checked under warranty. If you take it apart yourself at all you will invalidate the warranty.
Has anyone engaged the gear lock whilst the disc was still spinning. I see a fair few machines where this has happened and it causes damage to the lock pin, gear and gearbox housing.

I have 2 makita variable speed polishers....i have fixed them myself many times..its either brushes or cord...My older one is two years old,and it is really acting up replaced brushes yesterday and stopped...

look for excessive lambs wool in the area around the armature/commutator. Then look for the commutator being cupped real bad and if so you would need to replace it or have it turned at a repair shop if it is not that bad. Clean the brush tubes also to make sure the brushes move freely.

Gears seem to be skipping. which of the 2 gears is most likely to wear? the one on the armature? or the big disk one?

If one gear is damaged it is causing damaging to the other, whether you can see it or not. If you have teeth that are skipping, the gear with bad teeth will wear out the teeth on the other gear. You should always replace both gears. On your polisher, the small drive gear isn't on the armature, it's part of the armature (Makita part number 515266-4) and that's a $90 to $110 part to replace. The spiral bevel gear (Makita part number 227455-6) is $40 to $45. You can replace one or the other but the gear you leave in will only wear out the new one.

Cord wrapped around unit while polishing and shut down. cannot restart

possibly ripped the wires from switch or broke the wires in the cord itself. You can go to for a breakdown on this tool, but would have to guess at the above.

My Black & Decker mouse is now making a louder than usual noise and the base does not vibrate as it used to. What could be wrong?

possibly a bearing is seizing up causing the motor to slow down and therefore less vibration. You can try for a breakdown or to find a repair center.
