You probably did. They are pretty good about their warranty so I would bring it back to the store and get a new one

SOURCE: need help disassembling Porter Cable random orbit sander

Go to Dewaltservicenet.com and in the center of the page under needing parts type in your tool model number it will take you to another page and scroll down to the type 1 or 2 and click on it. It will bring up an exploded view of this tool. Why do you think that you need brushes? usually I have to replace the bearings and the brushes are pretty durable. Let me know if I can help further

I may not have the whole picture, but all random orbits spin wildly if they are not pressed onto the wood a little. Do you mean it is not oscellating, but just spinning when it is on the wood? That would be an issue requiring cleaning or repair, otherwise, just don't turn it on until you have placed it on the wood to avoid marring.

SOURCE: Porter Cable random Orbital Sander (Quicksand)

Hi, Sanders are prone to getting lots and lots of dust inside the unit. The cooling fan makes this problem inevitable. The only way to fix this is to take it apart and and blast it with a pressurized air tool. Hopefully this will bring back some life to your sander. The effectiveness of this procedure is dependent on how well you can remove all of the dust. hope this helps.

Why is my 5" sanding disks not sticking to my sander?


The holes are to suction dust for a vacuum attachment or dust collection bag. The sander will have a very smooth pad almost shiny if it takes stick-on discs (PSA). If not it will be a velcro pad and in that case you need the velcro discs. This description sounds like you have a velcro pad. Sticky discs wont stick to a velcro pad.

Ryobi problems


This is not that bad of a problem we should be able to resolve this-
bring a lamp or radio which ever one you have used and know it works plug it into the wall outlet if your lamp or radio work then we know its the plug, now plug in yr Ryobi random orbital sander it should work to do not involve an extension cord while we are trouble shooting if neither have worked on the same plug you must have a 3 way light switch on the wall that needs to be turned on, try and slightly spread the the metal blades on yr Ryobi outward for a better contact between cord blades and wall plug make sure you have firmly pressed in the the on off switch.

Hi, my BO5010 spins like a grinder if it is not held tightly to the workpiece, can it be fixed? Thanks, Ope.


Just under the sandpaper pad is a bearing that allows the pad to work as an orbital, that is it can turn freely, independently of the armature. If enough sawdust builds up around or inside this bearing the pad will spin like you describe and this is a fairly common problem with orbital sanders. You need Makita part number 211236-8 or a bearing #6002LL. It's fairly easy to replace; remove the screw in the center of the pad and remove it. Depending on which is tighter, the bearing will either be in the back of the pad or it will stay on the armature. Pry it off/out of the sander. Reassemble everything with the new bearing and you'll be back in business.

Orbital sander doesnt orbit!


Never start the Sander without first placing it against the surface to be sanded. In free air the Sander will not osolate.

Porter Cable Random Orbital Sander rotates but does not "orbit"


Just solved my problem with Porter Cable 333 orbital sander which just groaned. I thought the worst. I carefully took it apart on the garage floor and immediately suspected it needed lubrication as the motor turned hard. I used my flexible long plastic tube lubrication and put some on the bottom bearing shaft the best I could. I worked it around and around. I began to feel it turning easier. I applied more oil and kept moving and it became completely free. I put a drop on the top bearing even though it was loose. I put it all back together and it works like new. Lesson: do not look for the worst when a tool quits. Suspect the culprit to be lack of lubrication!!!

The armature windings have an overlay problem in the wiring causing this and there is no soluation except to replace the armature which is not cost efective unless you are still under Warrantee and get a free replacement, it will burn up at some point. If you bought it within the last month take it back and get a new one, over one month, pack it back up in the original box and send it to address in the owners manual for repair or replacement service addresses.

Orbital sander


You should really take it back to place of purchase and get it replaced/fixed under waranty. If you try anything other than checking the fuse you will invalidate the warranty. Most manufacturers allow retailers to replace faulty tools within seven days of purchase. Be sure to take your receipt with you as a copy will be needed for the shops warranty claim.
