SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Extreme Vibration in my Porter Cable (Rockwell) 330 Sander

I also have had this problem and I found that if I hold the unit tightly and squeeze the plastic housing the RPM's will stabilize as the unit warms up. Best fix is to replace the rubber isolators that prevent vibrations from the motor from reaching the plastic housing. The isolators have become hard through age or very cold temperatures.
I read somewhere that keeping the sander stored in a warm room can also help because when the rubber is very cold it becomes hard.

SOURCE: dewalt d26451 type 1 random orbital sander. why

I have the same problem with a Porter Cable orbital sander I recently purchased. Whats happening is the sander is catching the edge of the board you're trying to sand and jerking back and forth as the sander base spins. It seems that if the board your're sanding is at least as wide as the sander base, the problem goes away, which does little good because there will be many times I we'll need to sand wood that is less in size. But you may try using a lesser grit sandpaper and see if that alleviates the problem somewhat.

I think your model holds the paper with glue that is on the sand paper.Just take apart the back cover of the sand paper to expose the glue.

Palm sander not vibrating


Only real way to find out what is wrong is to open it up on this one. They are mostly plastic parts and you will probably find the broken part or where a gear is worn out.

The answer "Go to Dewaltservicenet" can be confusing - the actual site is servicenet.dewalt.com and even then, entering your part to get to manual can be infuriating. This is the link for the current model which, for all intents and purposes, is the same. The link to the helpful page is: http://www.dewalt.com/tools/woodworking-sanders-orbital-sanders-d26441k.aspx . You'll get a pop-up box with a dropdown that has a few numbers, nothing else. Just click on "1" and ignore language that indicates that this model has more than one - it does not. After you click on "1", the pop-up disappears that you're on the d/l page. Downloads are in the upper right corner. You want "Instruction Manual".You should get to this page: http://servicenet.dewalt.com/Parts/Browse#6229 but may not, it's very glitchy. On this page, you'll want to make sure "Sanders" is on the left and "sheet" is on the right. If you try to get the Manual from the DW411 page, a blank page will open. Make sure your pop-up blocker is off or that you allow dewalt.com. The instructions for the d26441k are identical to the dw411 - same technique for loading sanding sheets, same rods, etc. I've uploaded the d26441k page manual .pdf so that should help. It's easy to get lost on the Dewalt site while trying to find somthing so simple. :)

Severe vibration with Dewalt 744S Table Saw


try it with no blade
if you have unhabitual noise and vibration,probably need to change bearing
if you do not have a bearing puller do not try to do it yourself

professionals will take 2 to 3 times less time than you do the work and if there is something else damaged, (gear damaged,) he will see it and inform you

No powerto sander. Cord is good,switch is good and brushes are long


It sounds to me that you have used the sander a lot and the vibration has broken a wire or it's about to break on the field windings. The brushes you need to look at to see if worn. But I kind of think wire problem. I had this happen on mine and opened it up to find this is what happened. The sander would be turned on and would not operate until I turn upside down and it would work. This is great if you are sanding upside down but this is just a sign that you are on borrowed time as this will eventually not turn on at all. I was able to fix mine with new wire crimp connection and solder with heat shrink material. If not you can order new field winding if this is what is wrong. Cleaning up the sander won't hurt either. You might want to see what a new sander will cost vs. part. Good Luck!

When I bought my sander it has what i would describe as a rubber pad onj the sander. Is this the sanding pad?


That sounds right. It is probably the type that uses adhesive backed paper. You stick the paper to the rubber pad.

Sander locked up. buzzes but doesn't vibrate.


you have a bearing problem, I would check the lower bearing first by removing the platen assembly, then try and run the motor without it. If you still have a problem then it is the armature bearings, but start with the eccentric bearing

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.

Strange wurring sound and slight vibration at full speed Dewalt sds hammer drill dw25003.


On most sds drills the movement of the beat piece inside the piston cause then to vibrate, even at slow speed, this is normal, the most speed the louder the noise and vibration., note: is not a grinding noise, it should be a smooth nocking constant sound, as so the vibration.

I HAVE A PORTER CABLE 330 SANDER, IT VIBRATES SO MUCH IT IS UNCOMFOORTABLE TO HOLD. IF I REPLACE THE RUBBER POSTS WILL THIS SOLVE THE PROBLEM? IS IT SOMETHING ELSE?


Not sure if this will work for you, but I had the same problem with my 330, it vibrated so much it felt like I was being electrocuted. I took the four screws holding the pad off and blew compressed air inside the sander to remove all the sawdust. Screwed the pad back on and now it works fine. Mine was only 5 years old with very little use.
