If you are not mechanically or electrically inclined ! This is NOT a task YOU should take on. Leave it someone who has some aptitude for this type of equipment re repair et

Please remember

This is a brief expose of the tasks taken by me to renew the belts on this machine.

THE MAINS power to it MUST BE OFF before you start any work on this kind of equipment ! UNPLUG THE UNIT !

IF YOU venture to replace the belts on a similar unit and use my notes ITS YOUR RISK !

This kind of work is NOT advised for anyone who has little or no experience of such electro mechanical work !



Come on in and find out what I experienced when replacing them !

Given its age I can’t say too much but in fairness the comments made I think

reflect my probs and what an engineer would have when replacing the belts.

NOT an easy task and I if it had been a service shop that did it I reckon

NOT much change from a 100 !!
