If it is not orbiting I would look at the bearing in the eccentric under the pad to make sure not seized up or other problem. Also look at the screw holding everything together. Let me know with the exact model number and brand if still a problem and I will dig deeper into this.

My porter cable sander starts then stops and now it wont start at all thank you

If it is not the plug in the wall socket being loose, then the most common is the motor contact brushes.

My 5" random orbit sander model 333 is spinning out of control. What do I do?

I may not have the whole picture, but all random orbits spin wildly if they are not pressed onto the wood a little. Do you mean it is not oscellating, but just spinning when it is on the wood? That would be an issue requiring cleaning or repair, otherwise, just don't turn it on until you have placed it on the wood to avoid marring.

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!!!

I have a porter cable 5" r.o.s. that is not orbiting. what is the most common resolution to this problem?

It could be the bearing in the eccentric. If you provide the model number I will see what I can do to exactly narrow it down. But you can try turning the pad by hand and should feel some resistance and the motor not turn, if it does I would think the bearing or something rubbing on the housing.
