Sander doesn't spin


YOUR BALLBEARING where the disk is on mounted is the right bearing that have the problem for shure it is full of dust or completely dry it will not turn anymore SIMPLY TO CONTROL IF YOU MOVE YOUR DISK NOW ON YOUR MACHINE YOUR ARMATURE TURNS DIRECTLY WITH THE DISK thats not good the armature must stand still , replace the ballbearing or remove it and open it with a very little sharp screwdriver on the both sides solvent it out try to turn the bearing carefully until its turns without problems dry it or blow it out with a compressor and if its dry lubricate with ballbearing grease close it again and mount it again

Craftsman Sander 315.117120 has begun smoking after mere minutes of sanding and sounds much weaker than it once was. Is this definitely a motor burnout issue, the motor is no longer sold by sears for this...


Brush failure usually doesn't produce much smoke--check the motor windings for apparent overheating. Replacement of the machine appears to be the best solution. Good luck!

The sander heats up an smoke comes out of the housing. Can it be fixed?


If it smoked, then it's probably toast. These only cost about 70.00 hard to repair at that price.

Bosch 3283 dvs sander has unbalanced spin


This means the sander has been droped and the pad support and/or the bearing orbit has been bent, maybe even the motor shaft. Never leave any power tool sitting on a bench, always set it on the floor, it will end up there at some time anyways. You can try replacing a part at a time and spend a lot of money and time, but is it worth it?

Electric Bosch hand held orbital sander belt not rotating properly


My guess is that your sander got gunk in the belt and other rotating parts and you are either burning up the belt, or (hopefully not) the motor windings. Rick

Sander failure when using honda generator


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.
