Betsy – You actually have two separate motors in your sander. One drives the belt and one the drum. The larger one in the bottom is for the drum. If you have any cooling vents on the motor, blow the motor out with your air compressor to remove any dust. The dust could be causing the motor to overheat and trip the thermal switch.
