DeWALT Grinder Repair – Replacing the Inner Flange (DeWALT Part # 397616-00)


The inner flange works with the nut to secure
the grinding disc to your grinder. It has a 5/8-inch non threaded hole and a
7/8-inch hub to accept standard grinding wheels. Over time, the hub can wear causing the grinding
wheel to wobble. Replacing the inner flange is a repair that
you can do yourself. I’m going to show you how. Hi. I’m Mark Sodja. Do-it-yourself repairs like these are easier
than you might think. From lawn machines to cordless drills, kitchen
mixers, outdoor grills, our how-to videos walk you through each repair from start to
finish, so doing it yourself means never having to do it alone. Let’s get started. I’ll begin by removing the grinding wheel
from the grinder. I’ll depress the lock button and use the spanner
wrench to remove the nut. Now remove the wheel and the inner flange. Now I can replace the inner flange. You’ll notice one side of the flange is tapered;
the other side has the hub. The tapered side should go against the grinder’s
housing, so the hub is facing out. Now I can reinstall the wheel and secure it
with the nut. That’s how simple it is to install a new flange
on your grinder. Be sure to check back often for new videos
