My ridgid R8223400 has a good battery but will only run intermittently. and not with all heads.

does it run with other heads? please be specific.
consider: some heads have a greater power pull than others - if "heavier" heads fail to run completely could indicate bad battery or faulty pos/neg connections.
if no backup battery to check with - i'd take it to a dealer and have them check tool with known good battery with heaviest working head attached - make the retail giants bust a nut for you ;)
sounds like a connection issue - i'd check battery to unit connections (dirty/ loose?)- see if you can resolve it there.

Can anyone give me the steps to replace in & out rollers on a Ridgid 13" planer? Model # TP13002

On a few Ridgid planers, you can remove the retainer plates that hold the roller's bearing blocks in place without removing the head from the base, on others you have to seperate the head from the base to get at them. The infeed and outfeed rollers are not adjustable in that you don't have to line them up precisely when installing new rollers, they only go in one way. They do install into bearing blocks that 'float' on springs to keep the rollers tight on the wood being planed and there is a difference between the springs on the left and right side. Make sure you install the springs on the same side they came out of. When you replace the rollers you should replace the bearing blocks because they have to work together properly. Check the fit of the old bearing blocks on the new rollers, they should rotate smoothly with no side play. Make the call yourself whether to replace them or not.

My makita 4"X24" sander makes

I would say you have a bearing going out ether on the motor this web address will take you to a good break down of the housing I would say you need a motor bearing it will also give you a parts # but if you have a bearing supplier somewhere ( I look in yellow pages for electrical motor repair) you might find the bearing for a cheaper price just remember to take the old one with you so you are sure to get the same size. I have found bearing and belts for my table saws are the same as for some clothes washers for about 1/2 the price as ordering from sears
good luck

Plugged into vacuum...Done.

I haven't had this happen before but after looking at the parts diagram for your sander it looks as if a short has been created in the coils of the electric motor.
The sander is designed with a fan physically attached to the motor to assist in blowing out dust residue either into the dust bag or into a dust vac. Although adapters are sold to decrease the diameter on dust collection systems tubing i would guess that the total CFM's far exceed what Ridgid expected during engineering. The adapter port was most likely intended to be plugged into a small 5 to 10 gallon shop vac which won't generate the 650 and up CFM's that most dust collection units have.
So when the motor was attached to the dust collection unit the suction was probably turning the motor past what the electrical current was intending the motor to do, thus creating a short.
As for the fix. You can go through and get a replacement motor, or have the motor rewound and repaired by a specialist.
I would either leave the fan off of the motor shaft if you want to connect directly to the dust collection unit, not attach directly to the tool, or drill several large holes in the adapter to allow the cfm's to bring in air from around the tool as well as through the motor casing.

Dead. Power is connected, wires are in tact. Just died when I was using it. Is ther an internal reset?

Try to plug something else into the outlet, just to make sure that the breaker didn't trip.
Try to run the sander without a belt. It may be in a bind.
With the sander unplugged, check the motor brushes. Replace if necessary.
If everything above checks out OK, you may have a loose wire.
