@cajamadi ,Peter, Sounds like the center hub retaining bolt may of came loose or hub may have cracked/stripped not holding tight on shaft. Disassembly guide link below may help in diagnosing your issue with the sander. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
