Question about Porter Cable 362 12 Amp 4 Inch By 24 Inch Belt Sander With Cloth Dust Bag
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.

Most caused by . . . .
Often, a fracture of a drive belt in case of a worn-out engine house by melting damage of poor ball bearings.
When the driving armature becomes to hot by bad dirth ballbearings the armature bearing and the bearing of the capstan coming a little or more closer to each other the bearings stand towards each other by melt-damage, and therefore, the drive belt does not tight enough anymore to allow tearing through which pass the tips of the drive teeth.
