There is a black metal ******** one side that is actually a lever and with the tip of a screw driver or the like, pops out and releases the front roller.

Go to Makitatools.com and in their search block type in your model number and you can either look at a breakdown or the operators manual. Hope this helps. Dave

very good trade tool

how quickly is it getting hot
slowing motor could be the cause

How to install drive roller on my makita 9401 belt sander


DONT forget to order and replace also allways the sinter bearingbus on the machine because to protect you from a dissapointment because otherwise the belt will turns off and cant be (good) controlled again , replace the drive roller allways and clean the front roller axle if its only dirt on the front roller use a little sillicon grease film on the front behind can use a little bit more sillicon grease between the axle rings and new bearing bus. remove the dry grease in the driving gear space and renew the lubricant in it with a multipurpose grease .

What are the dimensions of the plain bearings on the back roller of a makita 9401 belt sander?


Go online to images. Type the sander model etc and there are parts diagrams shown. Just order the bearings from a Makita agent and save time and trouble.

I would say you have a bearing going out ether on the motor this web address will take you to a good break down of the housing I would say you need a motor bearing it will also give you a parts # but if you have a bearing supplier somewhere ( I look in yellow pages for electrical motor repair) you might find the bearing for a cheaper price just remember to take the old one with you so you are sure to get the same size. I have found bearing and belts for my table saws are the same as for some clothes washers for about 1/2 the price as ordering from sears
good luck

Older makita belt sander shocking me while using


You are probably missing an insulating ring / washer that goes between your bearing and your armature (the shaft on the center part of the electrical motor. The fact that it does not have a grounded plug is not necessarily an indicator of age or safety so don't be too afraid. DeWalt still uses two prong cords to this day. In these tools they offer what is called double insulation, simply non-conductive material that separates electrical components from the user. The part number for the insulating ring is 681623-9. If you ever wanted to ground the tool you don't really need any special switches you just have to attach the grounding line to the metal casing.

Brushes on my sander are wearing out within 10mins


the armature could be the problem, when you replace them do you notice a lot of arcing around the commutator, it might be bad or just need to have the surface cleaned. let me know.
