Question about Makita 9404 4'' x 24'' Belt Sander
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.

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.
