Will home depot replace my sander

Bought a year or so ago sanding pad fell off
Asked by: Red
I imagine this is no longer a valid question. But, I had the same situation where my Ridgid 6" just stopped working after I owned it for a year. I took it to Home Depot and much to my surprise they gave me store credit.

Customer Reviews

6 in. Variable-Speed Dual Random Orbital Sander with AIRGUARD Technology is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 192.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken after light use: Wasted time and Money without a solution! I bought the sander for a building a bar in my basement. It was used for small jobs here and there, but I was mostly interested in the larger pads for the ability to sand the bar top more even. A few months after purchase, the sander died in the middle of me sanding some shelves for the bar. I contacted Ridgid, and they said bring it to the Home Depot and they’ll take care of it.... What they didnt tell me was that I would be charged $19 to ship back to Ridgid for repair. I paid, figuring $19 was cheaped than the $100 to buy a new one. Fast forward 6 weeks, I find out my sander was replaced with a new one. I go to pick it up, only to find a 5” sander instead if 6”! I called Home Depot who told me to call Ridgid who told me “The 5in is all the warehouse has, but its equivalent.” I guess if my 12” miter saw broke, they may send an 8” hand saw, becuase they both cut wood. What a joke! Don’t spend your money on Ridgid, especially if you’re a contractor! It will die in the hands of a hobbyist who barely used the tool, then the Home Depot will take $20 more out of your pocket to send you a completey separate tool!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pad is as bad as they say. I wish i had read the reviews before buying. It is true, the hook and loop part of the pad is not glued very well. I used the sander for a total of 5 sanding discs and the edging of the hook and loop is pulling away. I guess i am stuck with it since HD wants nothing to do with the repair and Ridgid blames the user. I guess after every job i will have to replace the pad for $15. I should have listened to a friend and searched harder for a Bosch. Unfortunately i could not find one and needed it immediately for my deck project.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Replacement parts not readily available In general, I love Rigid tools. They are very affordable and usually incredibly durable. A couple of months ago I bought this sander to refinish my deck. This tool has tremendous power. Takes a while to figure out how to use it with skill. The first surprise is that the sand paper selection for this sander is extremely limited compared to competitor 5 inch sanders. In the last phase of my project the micro fiber hook and loop pad wore out, and it would no longer hold a sanding disc. You can't buy the pad on-line or in Home Depot stores. You have to call Rigid to even get the phone number and the part number to order, and you can only order it during normal business hours mon-fri. Ironically, HD stocks replacement pads for other mfg 5 inch sanders, but not the 6 inch Rigid!!!. If I had to do it again, I'd buy someone else's 5 inch machine who's replacement parts are readily available.

Today the pad started to fall off. Tightened up a few times but kept falling off. Ultimately the fiberglass backer on the pad got so destroyed and the holes got so enlarged is now useless. The cause of this... what I feel happens is when the body of the unit gets too warm from sanding for awhile the loctite on the screws softens and they work themselves loose.

Small projects it's perfect. If you plan on using this sander two or three times a week it's probably going to break. This is a love-hate relationship for me with this product. I've owned a ton of these Sanders and when they work their the best. The problem is they always break when you're counting on them the most.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sanding pads are cheap and keep ripping through screws The purpose of a sander is to actually be able to sand. The sanding pads are built so cheap with about 1/16” soft plastic held to the motor by 4 metal screws, that with any pressure at all, they rip through the pad and render the sander absolutely useless. Maybe saved them .05 cents in material costs. Terrible sander!

Have had my Ridgid orbital for about a month and already used it for three projects. Power to spare and love the variable speed. Makes it adaptable for tough removal work or more delicate sanding. I like the heft and solid feel of the Ridgid line. Totally satisfied.

My only issue is with registering the sander for the lifetime service agreement, as I bought it online and ridgid is giving me a fit with the registration process.
