    Well I took it apart and deduced that it has something to do around the fan. The O-ring may have something to do with it. I can't seem to get the fan unit fully apart, for fear of breaking something else.

Could be quite a few things from something in the fan to a coupler that is splitting apart. I would recommend going to and typing in your model number and downloading a breakdown if you are going to fix this yourself. Let me know if I can help, it has been awhile since I worked on one of these.

    Did you go to Makitas website and look at a schematic. The fan is pressed on and sometimes it can be hateful to do. It would be best if this is the problem to have a repair center press it on for you. Let me know

Be careful when using the grinder. This tool is made up of a variable speed motor and a switch.
