Why won't belt turn on 4" belt sander? motor runs fine and was using the sander when sparks flew and belt quit turning..


I understand how important it is for your belt sander to be working properly so that you can use it without any further delay and I will be happy to help. While you are waiting for an expert answer, I recommend you look in your owners manual in the troubleshooting section for more help. I found a link in where you can enter your model number and your owners manual will pop up. I hope my link is useful.

It sounds like a drive sprocket and/or shaft has failed on your sander. I pulled the diagram for your model and found that all of the drive parts are no longer in production. With the exception of sanding belts, drive belt, and screws it looks like everything is no longer in production. With parts not being available for it, it looks like we will not be able to get this unit going again.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
