There are no parts in your sander to grease. The only place there is grease is in the three sealed bearings on the armature and in the platen. Everything should be clean and dry inside the sander to make it less likely for sawdust to stick inside the tool. Blow everything out and replace the bearings if they are not turning freely and smoothly.

Do not break anything. Go to Dewaltservicenet.com and type in your model number in the middle of the page at the bottom and download a user manual for the tool. It should have come with what is called a punch plate to perforate the sandpaper for dust pickup (such as it is) Go there first and you will find everything that you need to use the tool

SOURCE: no sanding action and motor just buzzes

It will probably be the shaft from the motor to the orbital cam which is on the flat plate that you connect the sandpaper to , either the shaft or the bottom cam is broken [probably the shaft has snapped ] you can do a cheap repair with a good glue to reconnect the shaft [but you wont be able to push too hard again] or if you can get the parts just replace the shaft into the motor . they are really simple things to work on

Velcro pad that the sandpaper is fixed to has come off the plate. What's the best glue to use to re-stick the pad with?


You may try a two part epoxy, or gorilla glue. Let dry for a day or two. Sometimes 3m spray adhesive also works. Let tack before sticking together though.

sounds to me like the bearings are locking up, you can go to Dewaltservicenet.com and type in your model number and download a parts explosion for this tool so you can see the replacement part numbers. when you had it apart did you see any indication that the field was rubbing on the armature?? I would take a close look at the bearings though.

Motor runs but the drive drum that hold the sanding belt does not turn.


Instead of removing the drum, remove the belt and the cover over the gearbox. The gearbox cover is normaly fixed in place by screws around the drive pulley. There may be a couple of screws under the pulley, if so they can be accessed via holes in the pulley wheel itself. Check for worn or stripped gears. These gears can be replaced if need be, but if this is the case make sure you remove and clean out all the grease first and replace that aswell as it may contain bits of teeth that have come off the faulty gear. As far as I know belt sander drive rollers can not be removed without removing the drive inside the gearbox first.
