The first thing to do is to make sure the unit is completely clean. Many of the contaminates that get airborne while you are sanding can and will affect the motor's performance with time. Pay particular attention to the brushes/commutator or any kind of centrifugal switch it may have.

How to change pad?


this is easy done, just follow the steps:

1. disconnect the power cord
2. turn polisher pad up
3, grip firmly randomiser in one hand (that is this bulky bit between pad and polisher)
4. grip pad and rotate it against arrow direction.

if you just need to change the abrasive, these are on hook and loop and you just lift it from the pad and replace with new one.

this action will separate pad from randomiser, if you need to remove randomiser as well, you will need spanner of appriopriate size or adjustable.

you have manual available for download on this site:
