You did not specify how the sanding discs are meant to be attached to your sander's backing pad. My experience with this type of problem is material from the sanding process builds up on the backing pad and does not allow the sanding discs to adhere properly. If you have a velcro type system, clean the hooks on the sander's backing bad by soaking the pad's face in a plate of paint thinner for 20 to 30 minutes then use a wire brush to remove the rest of the paint physically. For adhesive pads clean the sander's backing pad surface with denatured alcohol. Do not use isopropryl or rubbing alcohol as this may not be 100% alcohol and could contain a lubricant like glycerin. When the sander's backing pad is completely dry and clean it will hold adhesive backed pads fine. Flaky paint is best scraped off before sanding, use a wide putty knife or a paint scaper to remove large flakes before sanding. This will minimize airborne dust and cleanup. For best results with adhesives, always keep your surfaces clean! Good luck and happy sanding! Michael Mittelsdorf

It sounds like the bearing in thee bottom plate is seizing. If you turn the pad by hand does the motor turn. It should be smooth. I would look at that. The bearing number for Makita is 211236-8 or if you can get a generic bearing it is 6002DDW. Let me know

You can go to Hitachipowertools.com and under products scroll down to find your sander. They also have a dealer locator that will find someone in your area. I looked at both the breakdown and manual for this tool and am concerned because it says pressure sensitive, but the literature states hook and loop, so you would have to specify the hook and loop. Let me know if you have any problems finding someone and I will try and help
