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

SOURCE: can't figure out how to
Just stick the sand paper sheet to the base of the mouse sander... it's velcro it will hold... match the forme of the paper with the forme of the sander's base... that's all...

I have had two Black & Decker mouse sanders. The first one died on mie after a respectable time so I decided to buy a new one (they're relatively cheap)
Now my second Mouse is also starting to rattle, just like the first one. So I took it apart and I now know some weak points of this machine:
1. The motor is a small one and does not really cool itself that good. After sanding for an hour, the poorly designed plastic fan at the bottom will deform because of the heat which causes more problems.
2. the bottom of the mouse is attached to the body by three 'hinges'. I know you;re not supposed to, but when you're sanding for an hour, you start to press the Mouse a bit more because you want some @#$ progress on your sanding work. This causes the hinges to loosen up. This is actually the ratttling sound you hear when you're mouse starts giving up.
So why has the Mouse gotten it's longest period after the rattling starts? Because of this the alignment of the mouse's sanding foot is not 100%. This means: Extra friction, extra heat: engine dies.
You can prolong the life a bit though:
When the rattling starts:
Take it apart and fill up the rear hinges by adding material on top of the hinge so the foot is aligned again. The Mouse sounds a lot better I can tell you. For me this meant a mm of metal on top of the rear hinges.
When you have it apart: clean the Mouse, get rid of the dust. The machine is very simple. You just need to loosen four screws and have a brush + vacuum cleaner ready.
