Ryobi problems


This is not that bad of a problem we should be able to resolve this-
bring a lamp or radio which ever one you have used and know it works plug it into the wall outlet if your lamp or radio work then we know its the plug, now plug in yr Ryobi random orbital sander it should work to do not involve an extension cord while we are trouble shooting if neither have worked on the same plug you must have a 3 way light switch on the wall that needs to be turned on, try and slightly spread the the metal blades on yr Ryobi outward for a better contact between cord blades and wall plug make sure you have firmly pressed in the the on off switch.
Ryobi tests all of its factory reconditioned power tools before they are sent back to be sold in stores to the public...

Oscillating drum sander runs a few minutes and stops


This usually occurs if the motor is overheating and the internal circuit breaker is tripping. After it cools down, it self resets. This can be caused by bad bearings or parts dragging the motor down, making it work hard enough to over heat and trip the breaker. If you are running it on an extension cord or circuit that isn't able to provide it with the amps it needs the motor will overheat and trip the breaker also.

I am using a Model 343 type 2 Porter Cable random orbital sander. It worked just fine, I turned it off, and 20 minutes later it would not turn back on. No strange noises, smells, etc. it just wouldn't...


Plug in the sander, Turn it on and Wiggle the wire around the plug. If your sander jumps on and off your plug need to be replaced.This should be a easy fix if you are a bit mechanically inclined. If that doesn't work, get a ohm meter and see if your cord is hooped. If cord is fine then look at the brushes.

Dewalt d26451 type 1 random orbital sander. why does this sander jump around on the material and feel like it's fighting me all the time instead of sanding smooth and easy?


I have the same problem with a Porter Cable orbital sander I recently purchased. Whats happening is the sander is catching the edge of the board you're trying to sand and jerking back and forth as the sander base spins. It seems that if the board your're sanding is at least as wide as the sander base, the problem goes away, which does little good because there will be many times I we'll need to sand wood that is less in size. But you may try using a lesser grit sandpaper and see if that alleviates the problem somewhat.

The floor sander will work for a few seconds then cuts out. this is the second sander where this has occured, we have tried running extension cords to other outlets/ laundry hookups also


its not getting enough amperage. poor wiring or thin extension cords will cause this. make sure you use a thick cord that is rated high enough to supply the sander.

Orbital sander doesnt orbit!


Never start the Sander without first placing it against the surface to be sanded. In free air the Sander will not osolate.

Orbital sander


You should really take it back to place of purchase and get it replaced/fixed under waranty. If you try anything other than checking the fuse you will invalidate the warranty. Most manufacturers allow retailers to replace faulty tools within seven days of purchase. Be sure to take your receipt with you as a copy will be needed for the shops warranty claim.
