the armature could be the problem, when you replace them do you notice a lot of arcing around the commutator, it might be bad or just need to have the surface cleaned. let me know.

How to install drive roller on my makita 9401 belt sander


DONT forget to order and replace also allways the sinter bearingbus on the machine because to protect you from a dissapointment because otherwise the belt will turns off and cant be (good) controlled again , replace the drive roller allways and clean the front roller axle if its only dirt on the front roller use a little sillicon grease film on the front behind can use a little bit more sillicon grease between the axle rings and new bearing bus. remove the dry grease in the driving gear space and renew the lubricant in it with a multipurpose grease .

How to clean a clogged belt sander


I assume you mean you want to clean the belt itself? You can use a rubber stick made for this. It looks and smells like a giant pencil eraser, about 1 inch square and about 10 inches long. However, if the belt is clogged with melted paint, that won't do much - but a stiff wire brush works OK. If the wire brush doesn't work, get a new belt. You can avoid the melted paint buildup (or at least reduce it) if you keep the sander moving rapidly over the surface, and use a good quality scraper to remove as much paint as possible before sanding.
Good luck!

Ihave replaced the brushes on my 9404 belt sander and it is running as if it still needs the brushes changing. Any ideaS?


If there is excess sparking from the brushes then the armature is shorted. Also a bad field can make a tool run slow.

Makita Belt Sander 9404 - dust collection bag not collecting the dust. Shooting dust out the front. What can be done to remedy this?


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.

Hi Mark,
Hear is an exploded parts diagram for the sander:

Remove the three screws on the handle cover part 23 to expose the cable connection to the trigger switch.

I would say you have a bearing going out ether on the motor this web address will take you to a good break down of the housing I would say you need a motor bearing it will also give you a parts # but if you have a bearing supplier somewhere ( I look in yellow pages for electrical motor repair) you might find the bearing for a cheaper price just remember to take the old one with you so you are sure to get the same size. I have found bearing and belts for my table saws are the same as for some clothes washers for about 1/2 the price as ordering from sears
good luck
