Question about Makita 5" Random Orbit Sander
The sander powers up fine but as soon as its put under load, it slows to almost a complete stop. it was working fine and then it wasn't. i checked the brushes and they seem to be fine
The armature windings have an overlay problem in the wiring causing this and there is no soluation except to replace the armature which is not cost efective unless you are still under Warrantee and get a free replacement, it will burn up at some point. If you bought it within the last month take it back and get a new one, over one month, pack it back up in the original box and send it to address in the owners manual for repair or replacement service addresses.
