You do not need a shop as they would do no more than you have and you would keep burning up belts. The reason for belts burning up is the bearings, when they heat up the old grease in them thickens up it binds them up. Replacing them is not cost efective, unless you have the time and knowledge to get to the bearings and work a light machine oil into them without getting any oil on other electrical componants as it will burn the electrial windings, brushes etc. Hope this has helped.

I have a Porter Cable 503 belt sander that heats up to the point that I can't touch it and have to stop using it to let it cool. I have been using this model for years, have relied on it exclusively, and...


I have a black and decker BR300 that I've had the same problem with.I don't know if yours is caused by the same things but what I found was that the vacumn system on mine was not sealed up good enough and too much dust was getting around motor cooling fins. Unfortunatly on mine by the time I figured this out it had frayed the drive belt which caused some small strands to wrap around drive gears and mostly trashed the motor. Hope this is of some help to you. Thanks

I have a Porter Cable Model 371 2.5" X 14" Belt Sander. I broke a belt, when I did it jammed and also broke a rubber sleeve that covers the Drive Wheel. I have yet to find this rubber sleeve in any part...


Unfortunatly that sleeve is not available, you will need to purchase a whole new drive wheel. The Drive wheel is $9.66 from DeWalt Service Net. Porter Cable, Delta & DeWalt are all owned by Stanley Black & Decker, you can contact DeWalt Factory Service for all parts. 1-800-4-DeWalt You can order the parts on-line, over the phone or though a local service center. The website is www.dewaltservicenet.com Below is the parts diagram for your sander. The part number for the drive wheel is A16439

After installing new belt, on Porter Belt Sander 352VS #6 the belt drifts of to one side until it comes completely off. How do I stop this?


There is a tracking adjustment knob on the side of the sander--adjust one way or the other until it tracks properly. This is something that will change by itself as the sander is being used--check periodically.

I have a Porter Cable 352VS Type 4 sander needs bearings.


You need special pullers for these, you will have to take it to a power tool repair shop.

Replacing sand paper


Look on the side of the tool between the guide and drive wheels for a lever

Loosening or disengaging this lever will take the tension off of the belt so that it can be removed

If there is no lever, there will be a tension know on the front of the tool that you can loosen to remove the belt

How do you replace the drive belt on a Porter Cable Belt Sander


There is a lever on the side at the front right near the roller that you can use to release the spring tension on that roller (moving it slightly to the rear).  Once the tension is released you can slip the sanding belt onto both rollers from the side.  Release the lever and the spring will put tension on the belt to hold it in place.  Use the knob on the left side to center the belt on the roller if it starts to slip sideways when in use.

Porter Cable belt sander


try to rig the nozzle of a shop vac to the part where the bag would normally connect and run the sander simultaneously with vac for a few minutes and see if that helps
