SOURCE: 1/4 palm Sander is not

Are you using the punch plate to put holes in the sand paper after you put on a new sheet?
If you are it could have an obstruction in the fan guide or the fan has broken fins. Both the punch plate and fan can be purchased by clicking on the below link.

SOURCE: dust bag won't collect

Try blowing through the little **** that collects sawdust (inside back by belt) with a compressed air nozzle, with the bag off, and squeeze the trigger and let the motor run a little. Blow out the insides as well as you can, including the air intakes for the cooling of the motor, and it should work fine again.
You can also blow out the bag to clean the pore in the fabric.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

the tool needs cleaned thoroughly. there might be a section of a belt that has jammed the passageway. UNPLUG the tool and turn over to see on the backside if the clog is there, if not I would recommend using safety glasses and compressed air to blow thru the channels to dislodge the material. I havae also used a shop vac to help in this.

Vacuum is not picking up anything


If you remove the hose from the vacuum, what is the airflow strength when the machine is turned on? (airflow = suction).

If it is strong then the problem is most likely a blockage in the hose, wand or floor tool.

If it is not strong then the problem is most likely internal. Check that canister and/or dust collection bag is not full, and that there is no blockage in the bag connector. If these are all okay, then you will to take your machine to a service/repair agent.

Stop sawdust shavings from coming in the carburetor section and where is the oiler adjustment?chain seems dry.


Sawdust is normal, however keeping the chain sharp goes a long way in reducing sawdust on the carb filter. A dust brush is good to clear the filter of sawdust each gas or oil fillup. Most chainsaws do not have an oil adjustment. One must check the Bar where the oil is pumped in for sawdust and clear it or reduced oiling will result.

Ryobi BE318-2 dust bag don't work


The pathway that the dust follows to reach the bag is most likely clogged. Take the bag off and look inside to see if there's sawdust plugging the orifice. If there is then you could vacuum out the dust or simply start up the sander and let the machine clear itself. If you do the latter just know that you will create a cloud of dust so do it in the proper environment.

Sawdust does not collect in bag but remains on wood that is worked on. Have tried to locate problem (probably blockage but have not found cause or remedy)


Best way to clear the vacuum path: remove the sanding belt and collection bag. Use an airhose to blow compressed air through the opening where the bag attaches to blow out anything that may be in the airway. After blowing through the outlet, check around the rear of the drive pulley for any wood that may have to be picked out. Reattach everything and try it again. If it still doesn't work, the vacuum is driven by a fan on the end of the armature. You'll have to take the case apart and check that to see if the fan blades have broken off or the fan has come lose from the armature.

Dust blows out a top right vent and covers my face


Look for debris or sawdust buildup in the fan shroud. This is the part that looks like a semi-circle and connects to the dust bag. Also check the main housing of the unit.
Sawdust builds up over time and moisture and humidity turns it into something like a really loose stucco, you won't have any difficulty in cleaning it out just a rag will work. In the future you can throw some desiccant packs in the case or the drawer where it is stored and it will increase the time between needed cleanings.
Desiccant packs are those little packs you find in new product packaging that says 'Do not eat' all over it'. It just helps absorb excess moisture. I have a little box in my shop where i save these things when i buy something new. I toss a couple in pretty much every drawer of my toolbox and it's helped keep all of my tools in god shape.

No vacumm pressure. the passages are clear and the motor runs but there is very little suction.


if you are certain no blockages ? and the dust collector is clear/clean ? have you checked that the outlet filter which is located inside dust compartment is clean/clear this is usually a gauze filter its purpose is - as vac works and draws dust into collector the air that is sucked up thro vac builds up in collector chamber or bag on most vacs? and so for vac to maintain suction the air has to be able to escape to atmosphere/room without dust which is left insude chamber/bag if fitted and so air escapes via the gauze vent as prev mentioned ? however if gauze filter is not clear to vent then vacuuum is restricted due to air drawn being unable to expel sometimes on vacs they will eventually cut off due to o/heat but will operate when cooled so may i suggest checking the above possibility ?
