Where to apply grease


There are no parts in your sander to grease. The only place there is grease is in the three sealed bearings on the armature and in the platen. Everything should be clean and dry inside the sander to make it less likely for sawdust to stick inside the tool. Blow everything out and replace the bearings if they are not turning freely and smoothly.

Impossible not to get water in the bearings and motor. It is vibrating too fast. You need air sander. Or sand dry, then wet sand the primer by hand.

Sounds like a problem with the ON/OFF switch. Hit it with a bit of contact cleaner or WD40 and work it a dozen or so times, it may just be dirty...... at least if you are lucky.

The vibrating plate stopped vibrating but the motor seems to be working ok. Either the plate is jammed or something broke. What do you think? This sander is probably 30 years old, very heavy duty.


check the bearing in the platen, it is probably seized up. you can go to Milwaukeetool.com and download a breakdown for this tool. Let me know and I will try and help further.

The motor buzzes slowly, it seems to be labouring and the plate rotates very slowly. Its as if the motor is blocked up inside. I've taken it apart and removed as much fine dust as possible but this hasn't...


sounds to me like the bearings are locking up, you can go to Dewaltservicenet.com and type in your model number and download a parts explosion for this tool so you can see the replacement part numbers. when you had it apart did you see any indication that the field was rubbing on the armature?? I would take a close look at the bearings though.

No sanding action and motor just buzzes


It will probably be the shaft from the motor to the orbital cam which is on the flat plate that you connect the sandpaper to , either the shaft or the bottom cam is broken [probably the shaft has snapped ] you can do a cheap repair with a good glue to reconnect the shaft [but you wont be able to push too hard again] or if you can get the parts just replace the shaft into the motor . they are really simple things to work on

Do not break anything. Go to Dewaltservicenet.com and type in your model number in the middle of the page at the bottom and download a user manual for the tool. It should have come with what is called a punch plate to perforate the sandpaper for dust pickup (such as it is) Go there first and you will find everything that you need to use the tool

Sander failure when using honda generator


If you are using a 220 volt 4 hp floor sander, which is 95% of all floor sanders. you CANNOT use a generator less than a 25KV, which is about the size of a van. All Floor sanders draw over 80 amps at start up and during floor sanding all sanders run around 25 amps. If your motor is a Capactor style motor you can do detrimental damage to the motor. Many of my customers have done it in the past.
