Ryobi BE318-2 Repair Help
I'm using a Roybi BE318-2 belt sander to sand down some wood floors in a small room. Recently, the sand paper belt caught on something and tore and a piece of the paper is lodged behind the drive wheel. I'm trying to disassemble the sander to get at the paper and remove it (and check the drive belt - there was a slight rubber odor), however it's not as easy as most tools I've repaired. (well, it probably is, really).
I've removed the 8 housing screws on the right side of the sander, but the housing will not come apart. I checked for a 9th screw under the branding sticker, but there was nothing there. I have an assembly diagram for the -2 model and it seems that it should only be the 8 screws holding it together. Any thoughts on what I'm missing? This is really throwing a wrench (or some sand paper) into my progress.
This Ryobi Repair Sheet might help
Let us know how it gets fixed.
Thank you, but that's the sheet I've been looking at. I removed the 8 screws that are listed as parts 31 and 32. I suppose, looking at it again, that I'll have to remove everything from the left side of the housing as well.
