Question about Bosch Tools & Hardware - Others

1 Answer

Bosch sander won't power up - it's only been used once then cleaned out and stored for a few months - this is the second one we've had - same thing happened to the first one but that was still under warranty so was replaced. Is there anything I can try? The fuse has been checked and is ok, we've turned the speed setting down to 1 but just nothing happening with it.

Sometimes happens that the wood dust and fine is introduced, and prevents the contact from the coals, you should blow it and try again

We rented a sander to sand our pool deck. it worked at first but now won't budge. it turns on but can't even push it forward.


Hello Radlad84,

There are few things you can look at.First see inside the sander if it full of dust and then clean it .
Second look for the brushes inside .they should have a proper length.
Good luck.

The pad between the bottom plate and sanding belt is worn, torn, and folded/disfigured on one corner. What is it's function and where can I get a replacement?


That pad is usually made of cork or graphite It's used to give the back side of the sanding belt a soft and slippery surface to run on so it won't over heat/tear and fail. The part you need is P/N 2601098037 Any Bosch service center will be able to get one for you. Go to BoschTools.com and look under "find a service center"

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.

Unit will not power on. Tried different circuits. Has had time to cool, but should not have been hot. Tool has had limited light use. Has not been dropped.


check the board with the variable speed control knob, mine failed once and would not power on. I believe I started having the same problem for the second time today.

I can't get the sandpaper to stay on the pad.


It sounds like you need to replace the backing pad on the sander. Over time the velcro (hook & Loop) on the backing pad will loose its stick. A Bosch service cneter can supply you with a new one, just let them know which model you have. If its an adhesive back sanding pad the same thing applys just get a new one. Hope this helps

CLEANING SANDER BUSHINGS


It's usually not the brushes but the commutator that needs cleaned. The commutator is the surface the brushes ride on. Go to Walgreens and buy a multi-surface nail file, one of the soft ones that are about 3/4" square with different colors for different grits. Don't start at the coarse grit!! Start at the medium grit and lightly drag it over each section in a smooth arcing motion, when the commutator surface is shiny it's clean, then replace the brushes with new ones.

Changing the rubber pad on the Bosch PEX 12 AE


I'm not familiar with that particular model, but they are virtually all replaced the same way. There are a few screws through the pad into the base. Simply remove them and screw the new pad on. You'll see that it's quite simple once you get the new pad in your hands.
Just be careful not to strip the head of the screw: use the right size screwdriver tip.

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!

Orbital sander flicking the sand paper off


You did not specify how the sanding discs are meant to be attached to your sander's backing pad.  My experience with this type of problem is material from the sanding process builds up on the backing pad and does not allow the sanding discs to adhere properly.  If you have a velcro type system, clean the hooks on the sander's backing bad by soaking the pad's face in a plate of paint thinner for 20 to 30 minutes then use a wire brush to remove the rest of the paint physically.    For adhesive pads clean the sander's backing pad surface with denatured alcohol.  Do not use isopropryl or rubbing alcohol as this may not be 100% alcohol and could contain a lubricant like glycerin.  When the sander's backing pad is completely dry and clean it will hold adhesive backed pads fine.    Flaky paint is best scraped off before sanding, use a wide putty knife or a paint scaper to remove large flakes before sanding.  This will minimize airborne dust and cleanup.    For best results with adhesives, always keep your surfaces  clean!    Good luck and happy sanding!  Michael Mittelsdorf
