NEVER mix surge protectors and UPS!!!. Doing so overloads whoever of the two gets connected to the wall. This equipment is built to be plugged DIRECTLY to the wall. Your unit just crossed it's inner battery. Take it to a recycling center, then stop on your favorite electronis shop and buy a new one.

There is an electronic circuit board on the motor that may have gone bad and will have to replaced, part # 06836740 and sells for around $75.00, for model S516. But if this a S316, then it could be the speed control mounted on the motor, Part # 04416342 and sells for around $83.00. Both of these models are Cat Naad Dog so you need the model number berfore you order a part.

there isn't an internal fuse. by the sounds of it you probably have a short, a bad brush, or some arcing.
if you use your sander for fine sanding (100+ grit paper) you have to make sure to clean out the motor housing. Fine sanding dust, like any fine dust, creates alot of heat when aerated and can melt the plastic brush holders or can cause the electricity to arc from one wire to another inside the housing.
my advice is to take the 8 (i think it's 8) screws out of the side of the gun and carefully pull the halves apart. there isnt alot you can mess up inside and just visually inspect the wires for burns or melting on the brush holder.
here's a breakdown if you need it.
if you find something inside that you're not sure of, or if you have any additional info i'll keep checking in on this.

If you are using a 220 volt 4 hp floor sander, which is 95% of all floor sanders. you CANNOT use a generator less than a 25KV, which is about the size of a van. All Floor sanders draw over 80 amps at start up and during floor sanding all sanders run around 25 amps. If your motor is a Capactor style motor you can do detrimental damage to the motor. Many of my customers have done it in the past.
