Hi,
I have a Bosch Planer, where it has been lately making funny loud noise and now it is small metal bits flying from the dust area.

Is this repairable or do i need to buy a new one.

belt looks ok and it rotates.

Many thanks for your advice replies in advance.

If you store it like that, something like a screw hasn't fallen into the dust extraction hole, and has got behind the planer drum has it?
Just a thought really.

Hi All,
It was stored correctly and i dont think there is a screw, but who knows and good point there. I tried to open the planer to see inside and i could not manage to open, as it may be sealed. From the picture it was just stored like that temporary to take the picture of the plane.

I will try tonight and see if there is any play on the cutter block, if there is movement, then it will be bearings as you say.

I phone few companies locally and they said to bin it and get a new one due to labour cost, so this is why i was trying to see if i can fix it myself.

it wont be sealed
you may have to remove the drive belt cover on the side to gain accsess to the screw or even remove the base plate or or nose plate

power planers seem to be second only to angle grinders for knackering bearings.

ive had a couple repaired in the past but one was elu and the other was bosch blue. tbh ya can buy a pretty decent one for not very much ££ by the time you order parts and repair yourself if thats possible as might need a press for the bearing. certainly the guy did when he fixed my bosch one.

Hi ,
Good morning, I have checked the blade cutter block and can not feel any play both directions , it rotates fine,but I feel it is not rotating smoothly/freely, looks like there is some friction.

could be a worn or failed bearing on the motor
a loose wire or component
a foreign object or a mixture off several things :lol:
i had an old bxd router[1986]started making funny noises
turns out the bearing was a bit tight due to resin and dust this had caused friction with the outer ring off the bearing melting the plastic housing a bit
managed to free up the bearing and used 3 very small wood screws to centre still going strong although little used 15-20 years on
so open up and have a look taking pictures as you go :thumbright:

Hi Big-all,
I did open what ever i can and last time and the belt side of it as well. i cleaned the wood dust was outer ring.

I will try and see if i can open it and see how it looks otherwise like fin said , it would be to cheaper to buy another one.

I rang Bosch and they told me if i buy another Brand new planer , which is £79.99 the Green Diy planer from their website , they will give me 30% discount from their website only, so this could be another option, if the parts are expensive.

There will be a natural resistance on the block as it is connected to the motor via a belt drive.

I would run it with some tissue over the exhaust port and see if it has cleared itself. Then run it over some wood and see if it is leaving teeth marks which would show the blades have chipped?

I think it is bearing gone, as both side washer covering the bearing was loose, so the bearing would be replaced, but I could not see how you would just replace the bearing on it own, so you may have to change the complete planer head , which would not be advisable due to part cost and just buy a new planer. I just opened to further investigate. I have purchased the New Bosch green Diy Planer from Gumtree for £36.50.

you need to look at any metal component where its close to another metal component for clean' shaved 'grooved or worn try for excess movement or slop and take it from there

try loading the cutter block and motor as if the drive band is on to see if it clashes anywhere
remember the base plate you have removed should be as grubby all over without shiny edges near the cutters as they should never make contact
