You may have bought a belt that is too small or over tightened the adjustment.

There may also be a chance that if the motor turns and the belt does not move you may have snaped the drive belt. If this is the case please take the tool to your nearest tool dealer.

How to clean a clogged belt sander


I assume you mean you want to clean the belt itself? You can use a rubber stick made for this. It looks and smells like a giant pencil eraser, about 1 inch square and about 10 inches long. However, if the belt is clogged with melted paint, that won't do much - but a stiff wire brush works OK. If the wire brush doesn't work, get a new belt. You can avoid the melted paint buildup (or at least reduce it) if you keep the sander moving rapidly over the surface, and use a good quality scraper to remove as much paint as possible before sanding.
Good luck!

The sandpaper works its way off the machine almost immediately after turning machine on. We already checked to see if the paper was the right size. We also made sure the tightening lever was secure.


If this is a belt sander then they have a tracking adjustment knob. You will need to adjust it so that the belt stays on and doesn't want to walk off.

I have borrowed a ryobi industrial belt sander, I have put the sanding belt and repositioned the latch. When running the sanding belt keeps moving out.


There will be a tracking adjustment somewhere, usually a knob or wheel located at one end (axle) of the sander that allows you to adjust that... run the sander at low speed while you turn it until it tracks straight

The Belt of my craftsman 3x21 sander slowly moves off track.


There is a leveling (screw/knob) on the side of the belt sander. Turn it up and the belt will drift in one direction. Turn it downward and the belt will drift in the opposite direction. play with this leveling screw/knob until you reach a good balance and the belt will stop drifting.

The belt slips off my Belt Sander


All sander will have two adjustments. The first is to release the sanding belt by retracting the position of one of the rollers. The second adjustment moves one of the rollers belt tension from side to side. The roller angular position is changed, sometime by a single knob or screw, and sometimes by two separate adjusting screws.

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
