Dewalt Tools & Hardware - Others - Page 8 - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
The answer "Go to Dewaltservicenet" can be confusing - the actual site is servicenet.dewalt.com and even then, entering your part to get to manual can be infuriating. This is the link for the current model which, for all intents and purposes, is the same. The link to the helpful page is: http://www.dewalt.com/tools/woodworking-sanders-orbital-sanders-d26441k.aspx . You'll get a pop-up box with a dropdown that has a few numbers, nothing else. Just click on "1" and ignore language that indicates that this model has more than one - it does not. After you click on "1", the pop-up disappears that you're on the d/l page. Downloads are in the upper right corner. You want "Instruction Manual".You should get to this page: http://servicenet.dewalt.com/Parts/Browse#6229 but may not, it's very glitchy. On this page, you'll want to make sure "Sanders" is on the left and "sheet" is on the right. If you try to get the Manual from the DW411 page, a blank page will open. Make sure your pop-up blocker is off or that you allow dewalt.com. The instructions for the d26441k are identical to the dw411 - same technique for loading sanding sheets, same rods, etc. I've uploaded the d26441k page manual .pdf so that should help. It's easy to get lost on the Dewalt site while trying to find somthing so simple. :)

It won't start or run all of a suddent
Take it apart and check the electrical connections and brushes. Check the power cord and be sure you are getting power to the connections at the motor switch. If yes, turn switch on. Are you getting power off the other side of the switch. If you don't see any issues with those it may be time to take to the shop.

Mitre saw makes horrible noise
- It sounds like the bearings in the motor are running dry and causing the noise. Possibly spray some wd40 in there but more than likely you will need a new saw. Is it still under warranty? If so take advantage of your warrant.
