SOURCE: Orbital sander flicking the sand paper off

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

SOURCE: Sanding Belt Slips Badly

Check and see if the pulleys on the sander are not glazed this somtimes will cause the belt to slip. Give them a good cleaning. If this does not help there is a good chance the spring on the belt tensioner is weak and need changed.

Hop this helps

SOURCE: sanding belt will not stay in line

There is an adjustment screw on the side of the sander that aligns the belt. Mine has a black plastic knob on it. If adjusting this does not help, remove the belt and check to see if it is making contact with the belt roller frame. The screw on mine was too long and I had to shorten it on a grinder. If you do this, take only a little at a time, a small adjustment will move the belt quite a bit.

The transmission between the motor and the sanding belt has been damaged by the excessive pressure you applied. Check it carefully to see if something got bent and operation can be restored. If it is gear driven and you broke off some of the gears then .....................................

this is the type of belt it uses (size rather) 4"x21 3/4" you can find them on ebay.
http://www.skiltools.com/en/ here is the official skil website. they can probably email you an owner's manual if you wish
