Dewalt air Palm sander, just bought and tried it a couple times and worked just fine but when I hit the trigger about the 5th time u can just hear air coming through the sander

the vanes in the small air motor are stuck
try a small amount ( couple of drops ) of sewing machine oil in the air inlet and see it it will spin
you may need to bump the pad on the bench to jar the shaft to start rotating

I spilled lemon ade in my psp and it only affected the "L" button, its stuck as if i am holding it down but i am not. is there a way i can fix it at home? the button isnt stuck down literally but...

There is a pad underneath the L Trigger that makes contact with the receiver for the button. The pad is either stuck to the receiver or the lemonade is causing a false contact. You can take it apart to clean it, once you remove the shell, you can remove and clean both triggers. Here is a link:

My CP7200S has stopped working. The air simply comes out of the bottom of the sander through the filter. Any suggestions?

the units gummed up from the air,get a can of air tool oil and pour it into the air hose inlet,then work the trigger to let the oil into the sander,then pour more in and connect the air hose and see if it will start,if not you may need to dis assemble and one of the reeds may be frozen in place or stuck letting air go by it and out the exhaust

I have a pts4 porter cable pneumatic sander that spins but stops on contact with a 100 grit pad or any pad that ive tried and this hapens even at the start before the compressor even kicks on. it didnt...

this unit takes 90 pounds per constant for desired function. Most machine shops have Huge compressors that will run these at a constant rate ,, also check the exhaust ( towards the vacuum hookup to check for clogs,, ) compressors that have a gauge that read 90 lbs doesn't necesarly mean they have the CFM to keep the pressure at what you need to keep it running

Porter Cable random Orbital Sander (Quicksand) Model 333, Double insulated When sanding, it stops and starts, it sounds as thogh it is stuck and then gets going for a short while

Hi, Sanders are prone to getting lots and lots of dust inside the unit. The cooling fan makes this problem inevitable. The only way to fix this is to take it apart and and blast it with a pressurized air tool. Hopefully this will bring back some life to your sander. The effectiveness of this procedure is dependent on how well you can remove all of the dust. hope this helps.

MY hoover steam vac hand held hose cleaner leaks profusely

try taking a sharp knife and shaving a little off the edge of the plastic, or a small file if you can get to it, see if it is getting binded. If its getting stuck internally, you will have to replace the switch instead of risking takin it apart.
