Question about Milwaukee Tool Milwaukee 1/4 Sheet Orbital Palm Sander - 6016 - 6

1 Answer

Cannot disassemble Milwaukee 6016 to replace brushes

I have removed the screws and partially separated the body. After it separates about 1/4 inch there is a catch that prevents complete separation. The catch seems to be somewhere in the lower part of the body. What is the trick/technique to get it open?
Thanks, Giles

Exactly what screws did you remove. you have to remove the bottom platen first (pad) then remove the housing screws. you need to remove the fan also and then might need to apply some pressure to split the housing halves.

I have removed all the screws but cannot separate the two halves. What else must I do to disassemble this?


make sure all screws are out first. the 2 halves are held together with clips. they will be hard to pull apart. try and make a small opening with a knife between the 2 halves and work around untill you come across a clip, push down on the clip to release it . there will be a few holding them together and you might find if you unclip one and move on it will clip back into place so a few thin instruments will be needed all the way around

My Porter Cable 4x24 VS belt sander has clogged up and I cannot get it unclogged. I've tried to disassemble it to get at the sanding dust channels but have had no luck at separating the two halves of the...


did you remove the screws that are under the handle halves, and before I completely disassemble the tool do you have a shop vacuum and if so remove the dust bag and put the hose on that outlet and run the tool and see if it pulls anything out. I would only split the halves as a last resort. Let me know if you need more assistance.

you dont need a puller for the fan, remove the lower pad assembly and the torx screw holding the bearing in place. use a screwdriver to gently lift the fan. the bottom of tool has to be disassembled to open the halves.

How to change pad?


this is easy done, just follow the steps:

1. disconnect the power cord
2. turn polisher pad up
3, grip firmly randomiser in one hand (that is this bulky bit between pad and polisher)
4. grip pad and rotate it against arrow direction.

if you just need to change the abrasive, these are on hook and loop and you just lift it from the pad and replace with new one.

this action will separate pad from randomiser, if you need to remove randomiser as well, you will need spanner of appriopriate size or adjustable.

you have manual available for download on this site:

if you find my advice useful, please do not hesitate to leave a comment and vote4 for me, thanx!

How do I replace the power cord for a makita palm sander? Specifically once all the visible screws are removed how does one separate the two body havles?


without knowing what the model number is you also have to remove the pad assembly and usually you will find some there if all removed you can GENTLY pry the cover halves apart. Go to Makitatools.com with you model number and you can download a breakdown for this tool.

No power nothing happens


Milwaukee tools have a 5yr warranty, best thing to do is to take it to a service center. It could be anything from the cord to switch, brushes, field coil etc. If it is newer than 5 yrs, thats the best route.

I need to remove the fan on my black and decker pad sander but theres no way to clamp the armature to unscrew the fan


Why would you want to remove the fan? There is a good chance that the fan is molded to the shaft and can not come off.

Ryobi rs-45 sander will not run


If you can not separate the case you missed a screw somewhere, happened to me many times, look closer there is another one, they have a way to hide one on you

Need brushes and on-off switches for milwaukee 6140-6 hand grinders is this grinder obsolete?


I would need the exact model number and serial number to help but the brush number is 22-18-0710 and there could be a couple different switches. Either give the ser number (the alpha code) or you can go direct to Milwaukeeelectrictool.com and type in the model number 6140 on the page for the breakdown. it might be easier to let me do it. I worked there for 17 years and if you can't get the alpha code look at the switch and I would need a good description of it
