Question about Porter Cable 332K Quicksand Random Orbit Sander W/ Case

Need help disassembling Porter Cable random orbit sander

I have a Poerter Cable 333VS random orbit sander. It would appear it needs new brushes, but I am having a little trouble knowing how to disassemble it so I can check the brushes before ordering them. Couldn't see the answer on the on line user manual.

    I too have a porter cable model 333 random orbit sander. The speed of the pad slows almost to a stop when applied to the wood with any pressure. Is this problem the belt? It couldn't be the bearings could it? There is no sound like a slipping gear when this happens.

Go to Dewaltservicenet.com and in the center of the page under needing parts type in your tool model number it will take you to another page and scroll down to the type 1 or 2 and click on it. It will bring up an exploded view of this tool. Why do you think that you need brushes? usually I have to replace the bearings and the brushes are pretty durable. Let me know if I can help further

Porter Cable Random Orbital Sander rotates but does not "orbit"


Just solved my problem with Porter Cable 333 orbital sander which just groaned. I thought the worst. I carefully took it apart on the garage floor and immediately suspected it needed lubrication as the motor turned hard. I used my flexible long plastic tube lubrication and put some on the bottom bearing shaft the best I could. I worked it around and around. I began to feel it turning easier. I applied more oil and kept moving and it became completely free. I put a drop on the top bearing even though it was loose. I put it all back together and it works like new. Lesson: do not look for the worst when a tool quits. Suspect the culprit to be lack of lubrication!!!

Porter Cable 7336 polisher - pad/backer plate will not begin to start without starting it by hand. Will changinging the brushes fix it?


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.
