I have had a Ryobi EBS-8021V Belt Sander for several years - good tool it has been. Yesterday the motor sound changed; the machine became VERY hot; and I found flakes of plastic inside the drive belt housing. The belt itself is fine - could it be the brushes... and, if so, how do I change them? Thanks for your time - Tony
