SOURCE: Putting Sanding paper on makita sander

A makita power planer is just what it says, a planer. It has blades that spin at high speed and remove a thin layer of wood with each pass. The orbital sanding sheets go on another tool called an orbital sander. Write back if you find the sander and can not figure out how the sheets go on it.

I would say you have a bearing going out ether on the motor this web address will take you to a good break down of the housing I would say you need a motor bearing it will also give you a parts # but if you have a bearing supplier somewhere ( I look in yellow pages for electrical motor repair) you might find the bearing for a cheaper price just remember to take the old one with you so you are sure to get the same size. I have found bearing and belts for my table saws are the same as for some clothes washers for about 1/2 the price as ordering from sears
good luck

My sander doesn't run at full speed - it's slow. I've changed the carbon brushes but this hasn't helped.


if it sparks a lot at the brushes , then there is an armature or winding fault
sanders are cheap so junk it and upgrade

Ihave replaced the brushes on my 9404 belt sander and it is running as if it still needs the brushes changing. Any ideaS?


If there is excess sparking from the brushes then the armature is shorted. Also a bad field can make a tool run slow.

The belt on the sander doesn't turn. The sander has power when plugged in and the motor runs when you press the button. But the Belt and track don't turn.


Likely the gear belt that drives the drive rollaer has failed. Either it is totally gone or the teeth in a spot have been destroyed and the motor is just spinning the sprocket in the belt. The belt is about 1/2 inch wide and is covered by a belt guard.

Brushes on my sander are wearing out within 10mins


the armature could be the problem, when you replace them do you notice a lot of arcing around the commutator, it might be bad or just need to have the surface cleaned. let me know.

Makita gv5000 5" disc sander won't work


there isn't an internal fuse. by the sounds of it you probably have a short, a bad brush, or some arcing.

if you use your sander for fine sanding (100+ grit paper) you have to make sure to clean out the motor housing. Fine sanding dust, like any fine dust, creates alot of heat when aerated and can melt the plastic brush holders or can cause the electricity to arc from one wire to another inside the housing.

my advice is to take the 8 (i think it's 8) screws out of the side of the gun and carefully pull the halves apart. there isnt alot you can mess up inside and just visually inspect the wires for burns or melting on the brush holder.

here's a breakdown if you need it.

if you find something inside that you're not sure of, or if you have any additional info i'll keep checking in on this.

My sander wont start has the brushes worn out how to swap them


The brushes are easy to check and replace. You will see a small disc to the right of the handle on teh motor body, and another on the front side. These are your brush caps. Simply unscrew them and you will see the brushes. They could just be stuck with sawdust so pull them out gently and check the length. Most makita brushes have a wear line that indicates when you need to change them, but generally if the holders are clear and teh brushes are tou ching the motor, the brass head should stick out a few mm before the caps go back on and this should be enough to give you time to get a new set in ready. The brushes will only fit in the holders one way.
