Troubleshooting Jet equipment
- Drill won’t turn on—Heavy duty tools, such as a power drill, wear down the power switch over time. You may notice your drill begins to lag or won’t even turn on. When this happens, you'll know it's time to replace the switch.
- Drill starts after shaking—You may find that your drill doesn’t start normally, but with a bit of shaking, it begins to start up. This could be caused by a bad commutator. Check that the commutator is round, not damaged, and that no buildup is present. The commutator will need to be repaired or replaced should this be the case.
- Sander pad won’t hold sandpaper—Sometimes, a sander pad may not hold the sandpaper in place. Check that there isn't any debris preventing the paper from sticking. You can use a compressed air to thoroughly clean the pad. Should the problem persist, it may just be due to a worn pad, which will have to be replaced.
- Sander dust bag is clogged—A sander bag may become clogged from the constant sand debris. Clean the bag, paying extra attention to larger pieces or any wet substances.
- Disc won’t spin—When a sander’s disc won’t spin, it's usually caused by overheating. Allow your tool to rest for 30 minutes, and then try again. If the problem persists, you may need to replace the motor brushes.
Top five bandsaw parts that can break down
- Drive belt—You may find that your bandsaw is running, but there's no movement from the blade. In this case, the drive belt may need to be replaced.
- Blade—It’s natural for blades to wear down over time, especially after heavy projects. Should you notice the blade isn’t cutting properly, you’ll want to check its sharpness. If the blade is dull, then you'll need to replace it.
- On-off switch—A defective switch will cause your bandsaw to not turn on. When this occurs, you'll need to replace the switch assembly.
- Tire—The band saw tire wears down with regular use, causing the blade to slip. If you encounter this problem, then you'll want to replace the band saw tire.
- Frame—The casing of your band saw is essential for keeping all inner components safe and operating correctly. Should you crack the frame, it's important to replace it immediately to avoid any electrical hazards or component malfunctions.
