Question about Dewalt Tools & Hardware - Others
If the cord is wedged, and it will be, loosening the lever is not enough.
1. Remove the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the black plastic cover (opposite side to the lever) on the side of the sander with dewalt printed on it. You will need to remove the 2 screws that hold the cover in place. Then carefull lift the cover off. There are 2 plastic pieces that slide into the main housing. They slide off. Gently.
3. The belt drive and pulley will now be exposed. Turn the pulley manually until you clear the cord from the roller.
4. Put the cover back on over the belt drive. Be careful to press in the wires on the main housing as you insert the plastic into the slots. Carefully. Put the screws back in till snug.
5. Inspect the power cords for cuts. Repair or replace as needed.

If you release the belt that would give you more room to get the cord out. When you releas the belt it brings the rollers together which loosens the belt.
