    I did return it to Home depot. They told me that it was not made for sanding painted wall but only wood and that they shouldn't have sold it to me for that kind of job. What probably happened is that the paint dust got hard inside and cracked the ball bearing. They gave me a store credit for the full amount.

You should really take it back to place of purchase and get it replaced/fixed under waranty. If you try anything other than checking the fuse you will invalidate the warranty. Most manufacturers allow retailers to replace faulty tools within seven days of purchase. Be sure to take your receipt with you as a copy will be needed for the shops warranty claim.

SOURCE: Makita 5010 will not work in random orbital mode

It sounds like the bearing in thee bottom plate is seizing. If you turn the pad by hand does the motor turn. It should be smooth. I would look at that. The bearing number for Makita is 211236-8 or if you can get a generic bearing it is 6002DDW. Let me know

Never start the Sander without first placing it against the surface to be sanded. In free air the Sander will not osolate.

The armature windings have an overlay problem in the wiring causing this and there is no soluation except to replace the armature which is not cost efective unless you are still under Warrantee and get a free replacement, it will burn up at some point. If you bought it within the last month take it back and get a new one, over one month, pack it back up in the original box and send it to address in the owners manual for repair or replacement service addresses.

What is happening to my Dewalt DW421 spinning fast, but no random orbiting motion.


Probably need to replace bearing 6202. I took mine apart, dissambled the retainer and used PB Blaster on the bearing. It seems to be a short term fix. At least it's not operating at hyper speed anymore. Long term, I probably need to replace the bearing and maybe a new lower retainer if I can't press the bearing out.

Dewalt d26451 type 1 random orbital sander. why does this sander jump around on the material and feel like it's fighting me all the time instead of sanding smooth and easy?


I have the same problem with a Porter Cable orbital sander I recently purchased. Whats happening is the sander is catching the edge of the board you're trying to sand and jerking back and forth as the sander base spins. It seems that if the board your're sanding is at least as wide as the sander base, the problem goes away, which does little good because there will be many times I we'll need to sand wood that is less in size. But you may try using a lesser grit sandpaper and see if that alleviates the problem somewhat.
