What have you been sanding?  Make sure the sander is unplugged. Remove the dust collector bag and use a flexible wire, like a coat hanger, to free the clogged material from the dust tube.  Replace bag and sand away!  Hope this solution works for you.  Michael Mittelsdorf

SOURCE: Porter Cable 352V belt sander eats belts

I've never had any particular problems with norton belts. All belts will require some adjustment as they wear in,however.
Try this: Put a new belt on, turn the sander upside down and rest it on the front handle. Get a good grip on the rear handle and turn it on while you use your other hand to turn the tracking adjustment. Just center the belt on the drum. I don't know what the manual tells you to do, but that's what matters, that the belt rides across the platen without hanging out loose in space or running up against the housing of the machine. If it does ride in against the housing, and you don't track it away, eventually you'll have a groove worn right through the side of the machine.
If you try this, and it still doesn't work, make sure the drums are secure and look right. Is it possible the machine was dropped and the drum bent? If so, parts will have to be replaced.
The only other cause I can imagine is that there is some kind of something jammed inside the housing that is protruding into the belt pathway that they're getting caught on, but that seems unlikely. Check anyway. Look with a flashlight.
There are better belts available than Norton, but they should work.
Some belts have an arrow on the inside of the belt indicating the direction of travel. Make sure if yours does, that you put it on that way. I try to install them so the joint will tend to ride up over the work instead of the work tending to want to tear the joint apart, but this is not always obvious, depending on the mfr.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

It sounds like the sand paper itself is slipping. There should be an adjustment to tighten the pressure on the sand paper itself.

The belt on the sander doesn't turn. The sander has power when plugged in and the motor runs when you press the button. But the Belt and track don't turn.


Likely the gear belt that drives the drive rollaer has failed. Either it is totally gone or the teeth in a spot have been destroyed and the motor is just spinning the sprocket in the belt. The belt is about 1/2 inch wide and is covered by a belt guard.

How do I release the lock on my Craftsman belt sander to lighten the belt. It's an old Model # 315.1172


I checked Searspartsdirect.com for that model number and they listed that number, but with an extra 0 at the right end. I couldn't find a belt release lever illustrated anywhere like that on my old Craftsman belt sander. On mine, you just flipped the lever either forward or back to release and tighten the belt. (still works great) There is a spring that pushes the front roller assembly forward when the lever is operated.

Motor runs but the drive drum that hold the sanding belt does not turn.


Instead of removing the drum, remove the belt and the cover over the gearbox. The gearbox cover is normaly fixed in place by screws around the drive pulley. There may be a couple of screws under the pulley, if so they can be accessed via holes in the pulley wheel itself. Check for worn or stripped gears. These gears can be replaced if need be, but if this is the case make sure you remove and clean out all the grease first and replace that aswell as it may contain bits of teeth that have come off the faulty gear. As far as I know belt sander drive rollers can not be removed without removing the drive inside the gearbox first.
