Customer Question
I HAVE A CORER/PEELER...

I HAVE A CORER/PEELER ATTACHMENT. THE SLIDE CARRIAGE BINDS AND CAUSES THE GEAR TO SLIP. I HAVE CLEANED IT VERY WELL AND IT STILL HAPPENS SHORTLY AFTER. CAN THE CARRIAGE BE LUBRICATED? IF SO WITH WHAT?

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

IT HAS PEELED ABOUT 100 LBS OF APPLES OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS. I BOUGHT IT LAST YEAR

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

YES

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I DON'T BELIEVE SO

Use some cocunut oil or cocunut paste to lubricate it. It works very well and is safe to use for all food based equipment.
