You may be using the wrong size pad, especially if it's an after market pad. Get a OEM pad or see if there is any place on the sander to fine tune the tightness. Should be in the owners manual or get ahold of the manufacturer. It also sounds like it could be getting in a bind.

My road king 2011 do not break after change pads (ABS)


Hi Camarch00, take it back to the dealer and demand satisfaction politely and you want it fixed for free since you already paid big bucks for the practice repair. If they give you any static ask the store manager for the Motor Company's customer service phone number so you can ask them why your dealer won;t waranty their work in a timely manner. Good luck and have nice day.

I have been using a Makita random orbit sander model BO5010 for years without problems until I replaced the pad with a Porter Cable 13910, sold as compatible. Now the sander takes off, ie: increases speed...


HI, i have a feeling the pad could be the issue there. The genuine Makita one is designed for the motor, so unless the the replacement is exactly the same thickness, diameter, and weight then you will have problems. Imagine putting a small wheel designed for a car on a truck, that kind of issue. Best thing to do is to try putting the old Makita pad back onto the machine and see if that make any difference. (that is if you still have it) At work we have had similar problems where we have used non-genuine circular saw blades onto our Makita saws, and its has burnt the motor out.

Hi, my BO5010 spins like a grinder if it is not held tightly to the workpiece, can it be fixed? Thanks, Ope.


Just under the sandpaper pad is a bearing that allows the pad to work as an orbital, that is it can turn freely, independently of the armature. If enough sawdust builds up around or inside this bearing the pad will spin like you describe and this is a fairly common problem with orbital sanders. You need Makita part number 211236-8 or a bearing #6002LL. It's fairly easy to replace; remove the screw in the center of the pad and remove it. Depending on which is tighter, the bearing will either be in the back of the pad or it will stay on the armature. Pry it off/out of the sander. Reassemble everything with the new bearing and you'll be back in business.

It spins out of control if I don't keep it under load.


Im not sure what you mean "out of control" but the tool is only meant to be on while in use . If the tool is really going crazy ,pull off orbital and check all screws and tighten accordingly

Orbital sander doesnt orbit!


Never start the Sander without first placing it against the surface to be sanded. In free air the Sander will not osolate.
