SOURCE: ORBITAL sander screeching (NOT belt sander!)

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.

SOURCE: My belt sander makes a horrible noise.....like

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
good luck

I have a Makita belt sander,just replaced belt tensioner system including springs and roller but belt drive roller still keeps stopping on relatively light load even though the motor is running


very good trade tool

how quickly is it getting hot
slowing motor could be the cause

motor bushes and bearings can be replaced
did the motor drive belt under the cover get replaced

Belt sander runs until I put pressure on it


It sounds like the sand paper itself is slipping. There should be an adjustment to tighten the pressure on the sand paper itself.

I have a power devil belt sander, but every time i turn it on for use the belt works its way off... i bought this sander second hand at a boot sale so im thinking is there supposed to be an outside guide...


no there is not anything missing, you need to adjust the belt by turning the black plastic adjuster knob which guides the belt to the left. I have found that whilst using the sander you sometime need to adjust it further. If you adjust it too much the belt will hit and grind the plastic casing of the sander.

Also make sure you are using the correct size belt as it should be size 75X533 which you can buy from Toolstation for £2.78 a pack of 5.

Dead. Power is connected, wires are in tact. Just died when I was using it. Is ther an internal reset?


Try to plug something else into the outlet, just to make sure that the breaker didn't trip.
Try to run the sander without a belt. It may be in a bind.
With the sander unplugged, check the motor brushes. Replace if necessary.
If everything above checks out OK, you may have a loose wire.

New belts on drum sander shear off inside clip


Belt sander are very tempermentel and require a light machine oil (3-in-one) on the metal slides and Tension lever and springs to opperate properally, if not they will drive you nuts, it will make a big differance, a few drops will do ya, more it needed, to much will cause a reverse action and collect dust, clean areas before oiling with air preasure and fluids if needed to get rid of build up from wood dust
