Five parts in Ryobi tools that can break
Before servicing your tools or replacing parts, it's important to familiarize yourself with the owner's manual so that you understand each tool's specific information. Also, don't forget to disconnect the tools from their power source and wear proper eye protection while working on them.
Dust bag—Most sanding tools come with a dust bag that collects sawdust and prevents it from filling the air during use. If the dust bag has a hole in it or doesn't fit securely onto the sander, it should be replaced.
Carburetor—Gas-powered tools such as leaf blowers and line trimmers have a small carburetor. It mixes compressed fuel and air at a specific ratio, which provides combustion for the engine. A damaged carburetor may leak fuel or provide insufficient power and will need to be rebuilt or replaced.
Motor brushes—The motor brushes are found on many battery-operated hand tools like a Ryobi angle grinder. They conduct electrical current between a rotating shaft and stationary wires to operate the tool. If the brushes become too worn down, they won't conduct current efficiently and will need to be replaced.
Fuel line—Some gas-powered tools, like a Ryobi line trimmer, have a clear piece of tubing that connects the fuel tank to the carburetor. If it becomes brittle, it may crack and leak and may not connect securely to the carburetor. If this happens, it will need to be replaced.
Heating element—The heating element in a heat gun provides the high temperature needed for operation. A burned-out element may work inefficiently and should be replaced with a new one.
