Research has led me to two possible reasons for this happening. Either the shop vac created enough excess downward pressure (suction of the sander down to the wood)to overload the motor and it quit. Or the static charge created by dust running through the vacuum hose somehow shorted out the circuit board in the unit, causing it to quit. Either way, this is clearly unacceptable and I expected more from a (reported) high quality tool. Do yourself a favor and skip this sander until PC manages to work out the poor motor issues.
I see some reviews where people have had failures but I've had no problems with the unit at all. I use it connected to a shop vac and find the dust collection is excellent. I've owned the sander for about three years now and use it almost daily.
Good reliable performer. I've thought about buying another one just to have a backup in case they quit making them.
I sold my studio and all the large shop tools including the 20 cfm air compressor leaving me without a finish sander. Other manufactures have tried producing electric DA sanders with unsatisfactory results. They were underpowered and or cumbersome. The low profile Porter cable 390 is the first to really succeed. I have sanded numerous projects with it using differing woods at all sanding aspects with very good results. Those that have complaints are probably using poor sanding technique; using worn out or loaded up paper or pressing to hard, forcing the sander. The sander likes to be blown out occasionally. Great value for the price.

I bought this to sand old paint off my deck baluster's and railings . It worked well at first but, it stopped orbiting. It would spin but lacked the random orbit. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Guy Okis
It actually collects the dust and you have to empty it fairly often. The quick stop is useful and saves time. Wish the on/off was under my finger rather that in the front. Read morePublished 15 months ago by John T.

I used this sander 3 times and on the third time it started to pulsate and then it died. I guess all the other reviews were right. Read morePublished 24 months ago by C. Tramonte
This sander works really well and does a great job. I was using an older Dewalt sander and bought this one after reading the reviews. Read morePublished on July 13, 2014 by John
The low profile is easier than the one we have that is the older model. It oasted a long time, but finally quit. Hope this one performs that long.Published on July 11, 2014 by regetta Lancaster
