20 Most Recent Dewalt Heavy - Duty 5" Random Orbit Sander - D26451 Questions & Answers


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.

no, but there may be an overload fuse. My guess is that it is part 62 here, but not available. Take it to a DeWalt service centre

It is available here, but is $88. Lot of money to lay out on a guess, which is all the more reason to get it looked at professionally. It may also be the motor windings burned out.

Either the blades are incorrectly installed causing the head to jam or the safety cover is not installed properly - there is a safety mechanism that locks the cutter head when the cover is removed.

Typical cause is low voltage - but can also be a bent driver or something jammed in the nail track.
Is this a finish nailer or framing nailer?

Dewalt Tools &... | Answered on Feb 02, 2019


That symptom usually indicates a low voltage issue - not sure how the adapter may affect this, I've never run them with a 20v battery.
Try it with a standard 18v and see if you have the same issue - please comment back with the results, I'm curious.

Without inspecting tool, it would be hard to definitely tell what part, I would call Dewalt, they will be glad to help you. You do not want to throw parts at it.
