Hi to you from David, 'The Famous Forry'
Do you want to try and repair this yourself or do you just want a diagnosis?
If it was relatively straightforward, I might try to fix it. I'm also trying to assess if it's worth repairing, or is the cost such that I'd be better buying a new machine.
Cost of parts is under £15
You would need to remove the main motor
Would I require special tools, how hard is it to remove the main motor etc? Are you suggesting that a drive belt has come off?
No the brushes will have worn out
I think from memory the bolts are 13mm
You would need a socket wrench and screw driver to remove the back panel. ISOLATE FIRST !
How hard is it to source the parts? What could I expect to pay if I called a repairer?
Parts are easily sourced on line with next day delivery.
Repair man would chatge about £65 in total/ Ask the repair man how much to change motor brushes
Get answer before committing to the repair
Many offer free call out/ What area are you?
I know some who do this in the midlands and stratford
I'm in Glasgow.
OK, You would have to use your directory and ask cost first.
Thanks for your help.
