No, sounds like a bad bearing. But depending on who made it parts may be available. Don't know if it helps but I use a co. called GRAINGER, they are pretty helpfull. good luck.

I have a Rigid belt sander and after nearly continuous use the fan bearing overheated and melted the plastic housing it is surrounded by. The net result was the bearing moved and that caused the belt (toothed) to be too loose and slip- causing a loud rasping sound. I heated the bearing up with a propane torch and moved it back close to where it should be. Then was faced with the globs of melted plastic that were binding the fan gear. A dremel tool was used to get rid of the plastic and it sort of works without growling most of the time now. Basically, Home Depot tools aren't made for continuous duty and if you use them that way they self destruct.

I would say you have a bearing going out ether on the motor this web address will take you to a good break down of the housing I would say you need a motor bearing it will also give you a parts # but if you have a bearing supplier somewhere ( I look in yellow pages for electrical motor repair) you might find the bearing for a cheaper price just remember to take the old one with you so you are sure to get the same size. I have found bearing and belts for my table saws are the same as for some clothes washers for about 1/2 the price as ordering from sears
