Question about Garden

Craftsman Sander 315.117120 has begun smoking after mere minutes of sanding and sounds much weaker than it once was. Is this definitely a motor burnout issue, the motor is no longer sold by sears for this product, or could brush replacement fix the problem?

Brush failure usually doesn't produce much smoke--check the motor windings for apparent overheating. Replacement of the machine appears to be the best solution. Good luck!

My Model # 362 Belt sander keeps breaking belts after just a few minutes of continued use. Why?


This is usually indicative of someone pushing down on the sander too hard while sanding. The motor in this sander is strong enough to pull the belt around even with too much pressure on the sander. This causes excessive heat to build in the sanding belt and sander shoe which causes the belt to break down prematurly. It's also very hard on the sander's bearings and motor. Use an appropriate sandpaper grit that will do the job without excessive pressure on the worksurface. This will make your sanding belts and sander work longer and cooler.

The local hardware store has brushes in all different sizes in a box, next to the switches, fuses, plugs, cords, tool type stuff. They are standard sizes, should be able to find them no problem. Hope this helps.

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 floor sander will work for a few seconds then cuts out. this is the second sander where this has occured, we have tried running extension cords to other outlets/ laundry hookups also


its not getting enough amperage. poor wiring or thin extension cords will cause this. make sure you use a thick cord that is rated high enough to supply the sander.

Orbital sander doesnt orbit!


Never start the Sander without first placing it against the surface to be sanded. In free air the Sander will not osolate.

Hand sander stops spinning once placed on item to be sanded


This sander has a brake pad that is supposed to stop the rotation when the sander is not actually in use. It sounds like it's malfunctioning.
The only other thing I can think could be a cause of what you describe is an improperly assembled sanding base. Have you changed out the base, and if so, were you sure to properly align the replaced base on the machine before you tightened the allen screw?
If you're not comfortable disassembling a tool that is still under warranty ( I think it's two years for that one), I would recommend finding a Dewalt service center and taking it in for a factory service call.
