PEX 15ae orbital sander malfunction

Have replaced the small drive belt on this sander but now the operation is faulty. There is a function whereby the sander doesn't rotate until you apply pressure but now it appears to work in reverse: rotates when switched on then stops when pressure is applied. Can't work it out!

SOURCE: Makita 5010 will not work in random orbital mode

It sounds like the bearing in thee bottom plate is seizing. If you turn the pad by hand does the motor turn. It should be smooth. I would look at that. The bearing number for Makita is 211236-8 or if you can get a generic bearing it is 6002DDW. Let me know

SOURCE: changing the rubber pad on the Bosch PEX 12 AE

I'm not familiar with that particular model, but they are virtually all replaced the same way. There are a few screws through the pad into the base. Simply remove them and screw the new pad on. You'll see that it's quite simple once you get the new pad in your hands.
Just be careful not to strip the head of the screw: use the right size screwdriver tip.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

SOURCE: Sander does not turn on when power is applied

could be a couple things but I am going to guess the switch is contaminated and keeps tool from running. The switch number is A22667 and lists for 2.81. What you can do to find out possibly is hold tool up and in rapid sequence turn tool on and off and sometimes it will move enough dirt to operate. Let me know if you need any more assistance

SOURCE: 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!!!

Please help me to understand a faulty motor


If you go on a Bosch factory web site you should be able to enter your model and down load a parts list. From that you will see that the motor drive an eccentric dog that causes the plate to jitterbug. If you kept the original paperwork you will have had this with it. All Bosch units come with warranty and parts list. Look up your nearest Bosch tools agent, see if he'll strip it if you can't and determine what's needed. You may find its easier and more cost effective to shop around online for a special offer and buy a new one. Not very green I know but may be more practical.

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

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.

Electric Bosch hand held orbital sander belt not rotating properly


My guess is that your sander got gunk in the belt and other rotating parts and you are either burning up the belt, or (hopefully not) the motor windings. Rick

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.

How many Types of Sanders?


Belt sanders: Belt sanders are useful for removing large quantities of wood stock quickly. They are generally used for rough sanding before fine finishing with a smaller sander. Palm sanders: Palm sanders are ultra-portable and useful for finishing small projects. Orbit sanders: Orbit sanders are usually more heavy-duty than palm sanders and appropriate for larger projects.
