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
https://www.ereplacementparts.com/dewalt-dw431-type-electric-belt-sander-parts-c-1009_2742_2764.html

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.

SOURCE: the sanding belt has broken and jammed in behind

UNPLUG tool and with a pair of needle nose plliers and patience pull the belt loose it might take some time but that isabout the only way to do it.

Towel caught in front roller


Well, it sounds like you have a belt sander. I would start by sacrificing the towel and the belt. Even if you tried all day and were able to save them they would probably look like they got caught in a sander. Get a utility knife and change the blade, you will want a brand new sharp blade for this. Start by cutting as much of the exposed towel off as you can. Remember, at this point the only thing you might be able to save is the sander. Cutting off the belt will relieve the tension. When you cut the belt give yourself enough belt on ether side to get a good grip. You might need to pull the belt back and forth as you remove small pieces of the towel. A good pair of pliers might help grip the towel fragments. When you finally do remove all the towel and the belt, take some time to look around the drum for fibers that might be stuck in the bearings and pull them out. You may need needle knows pliers for this. Keep the towel shreds for sating rags to finish the project you're working on so it will not be a total waist.
Good Luck

I accidently ran over the cord with my DW430R 5.2 Amp belt sander and it's wedged so tightly between the wheel and sander body and I can't get it out.


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.

I have a Black and Decker Sander, model # 5.2 A and I cannot find a motor belt for it. The belt that broke has "made in China" stamped on it and the numbers 110XL 031 stamped on it.


You might try Dewalt. I have a Black & Decker weed eater that had a broken belt and I had to order it from Dewalt. I was told that they had some kind of merger. Ordered it and it worked just fine.

I have a Porter Cable Model 371 2.5" X 14" Belt Sander. I broke a belt, when I did it jammed and also broke a rubber sleeve that covers the Drive Wheel. I have yet to find this rubber sleeve in any part...


Unfortunatly that sleeve is not available, you will need to purchase a whole new drive wheel. The Drive wheel is $9.66 from DeWalt Service Net. Porter Cable, Delta & DeWalt are all owned by Stanley Black & Decker, you can contact DeWalt Factory Service for all parts. 1-800-4-DeWalt You can order the parts on-line, over the phone or though a local service center. The website is www.dewaltservicenet.com Below is the parts diagram for your sander. The part number for the drive wheel is A16439

Motor runs but the drive drum that hold the sanding belt does not turn.


Instead of removing the drum, remove the belt and the cover over the gearbox. The gearbox cover is normaly fixed in place by screws around the drive pulley. There may be a couple of screws under the pulley, if so they can be accessed via holes in the pulley wheel itself. Check for worn or stripped gears. These gears can be replaced if need be, but if this is the case make sure you remove and clean out all the grease first and replace that aswell as it may contain bits of teeth that have come off the faulty gear. As far as I know belt sander drive rollers can not be removed without removing the drive inside the gearbox first.
