Hi, I'm trying to change the fiber disc on a DeWalt DW402 but after pushing the locking button on top I'm not able to unscrew the wheel. If I turn counterclockwise the wheel turns, but it seems I...


  • 1 Check the grinder before you begin. The newer discs on rotary grinders have patented buttons that allow you to remove the disc without any tools. You may have one like that. In models like this, there's usually a spot to depress and then remove the disc.

  • 2 Turn off the grinder before you attempt to remove and change the disc on your rotary grinder. If it's battery powered, put the grinder in lock position so you can't accidentally turn it on. If it's electric, unplug the grinder from the wall.
  • 3 Look for a nut in the center of the disc. This is a give away that you need to use your special wrench. Sometimes the grinder comes with a tool necessary to loosen and remove the nut. Other times you need to use a wrench.
  • 4 Lock the wheel into place before you begin. You can find a button or switch at the side or back that allows you to do that. When you lock the wheel in place, the disc remains still as you loosen the nut in the center.
  • 5 Remove the nut in the center with either the tool provided with the grinder or a shop tool and lift the disc off your rotary grinder.
  • 6Lift the disc off the rotary grinder. If you have different discs, remember to check for the best fit. Put the nut back on a different way for different discs. Check for a rim and indentation on one side of the nut and a flat side on the other. A visual inspection of the disc for the rotary grinder gives you information about the side to use.

    I have a dewalt 28402 grinder. I have replaced the pinion but I don't know how to get the helical gear out of the case to replace it. Any thoughts? Thanks Chris


    You can buy the pinion gear as a seperate part but not the ring gear. Dewalt only sells the ring gear as a part of the gear case assembly, PN 623586-00.

    Dewalt 4 1/2 angle grinder


    A Dewalt 4-1/2 inch hand grinder that normally uses 110-120 volts? Probably fried the armature windings.

    Check the switch (Out of grinder), and see if it has continuity. (OHMS test with multimeter) Pretty rare thing, but perhaps the switch took the brunt of the overload. If this is the case replace the switch.

    (After checking continuity on armature, and field windings, of course. If either one is bad, a new switch won't help)

    Which Model Number is it, and perhaps I can find an exploded drawing for you.
