Question about Porter Cable 362 12 Amp 4 Inch By 24 Inch Belt Sander With Cloth Dust Bag
About 4 years old, worked fine until I started to belt sand something, and all of a sudden a strong smell of electrical wires burning was present. I've had tools last 20 plus years, hard to believe a good name like this would go out so soon. would assume the motor is burning up. any recourse?
Motor may just need new brushes, Cooling vents may be clogged with dust. or bearings in the motor or front roller maybe bad. Causing excessive drag
blow it all out with compressed air or shopvac
look for external brush caps (2) oppsite from each other take them out to be sure they slide freely, sometimes one gets hug up and doesn't make good contact
