Betsy – Is the belt still turning when you turn it on? If it is, it’s not the main switch. As i said in my last reply, you have two separate motors in the sander. One for the belt and one for the drum. Did the reset stay in when you pushed it in? If it didn’t, then it’s a good chance the reset is bad. If it did, and tripped again, then you may have a bad capacitor or other internal motor problems.

-- Tom Finnigan - Measures? We don't need no stinking measures! - Hmm, maybe thats why my project pieces don't fit.
