Question about Dewalt Heavy - Duty 5" Random Orbit Sander - D26451
The same issue was faced by me some days back. All I did was the dusting of the tool and it worked. You can also try doing the same. There is also an option to switch to a different orbital sander if your tool is damaged or has stopped working. For this, you need to pick a genuine website that offers Best Orbital Sander parsimoniously. This tool serves various purposes, just acquire knowledge about it and utilize it to the fullest.

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.

It sounds to me that you have used the sander a lot and the vibration has broken a wire or it's about to break on the field windings. The brushes you need to look at to see if worn. But I kind of think wire problem. I had this happen on mine and opened it up to find this is what happened. The sander would be turned on and would not operate until I turn upside down and it would work. This is great if you are sanding upside down but this is just a sign that you are on borrowed time as this will eventually not turn on at all. I was able to fix mine with new wire crimp connection and solder with heat shrink material. If not you can order new field winding if this is what is wrong. Cleaning up the sander won't hurt either. You might want to see what a new sander will cost vs. part. Good Luck!
