    Anyone have thoughts on how to solve this?

    Smith 1.8 electric sander series II- Runs fine empty
    I loaded it with 1 ton of sand and it turns off and on intemittenly,with switch in on position. My friend thinks it's the fuse switch, which you can hear click on and off when it starts and stops?

    Anyone??

    it is a breaker so you don't fry the motor, to much weight.

    Do you think the breaker is bad? My friend that installed it thinks it is. It should handle up to 2 tons A sub- contractor I have has the same one and can load it to the top and no problem. Motor on the way out???
