Generic problem for all Vacuums
1957 Sunbeam Twin-Blade electric lawn mower shaft...
Posted by mower man on Jun 08, 2008
I have a late 50's series Sunbeam twin-blade electric lawn mower that I use regularly. The shaft bushing(s) on the left blade has worn out, and there's too much play for me to run it w/o ruining the machine.
It appears that the belt-run cog inside the housing is the part that is supposed to come off of the shaft to get to the bushings, but instead of a cotter pin or other fastener holding the cog in place, it looks like a rolled metal pin that may have been pressed in place.
How do I replace the shaft bushings so I can keep using this great vintage appliance!? I found a website that supplies parts for this model year, but no schematics or user manuals. Thanks!


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. This website is for vacuums and you would need to contact a local lawn mower shop in the yellow pages, they are amazing about the way they can fix old lawnmowers.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
Thanks, Don the Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.

If you got the right oem belt,ta\han you can look at the end where the cable attachs to spring and you should see a double nut adjustment loosen nuts and adjust to put more tension on the belt when you put lever into gear for blades to turn then retighten them .

Depending on your budget, I suggest replacing the item. It sounds like your bearings are bad, which means tearing apart the case and replacing them (which don't cost much). There are two bearing encasements so you would need to replace both. If you're up for the challenge, give it a try! The bearings can typically be found on the manufacturers website.

While mowing the drive belt tightner spring broke. I bought a replacement but the blades will not engage. The drive belt has been routed properly. it seems as though the blade's drive shaft will not spin.


Check and see if the shear pin has broken. If the pulleys spin but not the blades then the shear pin in the pulley or shaft has broken.

I've broken a couple of Rotozips. They say there is a replacement part available from the company, but I found it much easier to just replace it, as they have hidden springs and little parts that are real easy to lose ( I tried to fix 2 of them and now have lots of spare parts for the next one I break!). I paid $25.00 and about $10.00 for shipping for the button and lost the spring, and the button is very model specific - meaning it will only work on that model!
Hope this helps!!

Blades on ninja blender won't spin, but motor seems to be working.


I don't have one, but inspect the shaft, it looks like there is a key on the shaft, then inspect the inside of the blade where it goes on top of the shaft, see if it looks like the shaft has spun out the blade and this is why it's not spinning.

Remove the blade and the container, then turn on and see if the shaft is spinning, it should be most are a direct drive.

So now if the shaft is spinning, that most likely means that the blade hole is broke where it sets on top of the shaft.

Look closely at the inside of the blade, you should see some type of damage like the groves are worn, I hate to see you buy one and it was the shaft that wore, but usually the blade will go first.

This sounds like the flexible drive shaft inside of the main shaft has a stripped ferrule. In order for you to fix this, you will have to take the main shaft off of the motor housing and pull the flexible shaft out of the inside. The replacement part number is 530056570 and should be about $12 to replace. Call the number on the unit to order replacement parts or go to your local sears.

the inner shaft could have broken, which is the case a lot when using the blade vs the string remove the shaft from the motor, and spin the inner rod and see if the blade turns, if it does check the end of the rod and see if its damaged in anyway , if the blade doesn't spin, the shaft has broken and will need replacement

The pull start cord will only move about 3-4 inches and then it stops and then cord stops, Troy built- Briggs/Statton 21 inch self-propel lawnmower.


The mower's drive shaft may need to be lubricated. If you turn the mower over and try to move the blade by hand (with the mower off, of course) does it move, or is it hard to move? If it's hard to move or it won't move at all, lubricate the shaft by squirting some WD-40, 3-In-1, or other lubricating oil onto the drive shaft where it meets the chassis of the mower. Squirt enough oil to cover the circumference of the drive shaft, then try to spin the blade again. It should at least spin a little bit now. Squirt some more oil and spin the blade again, until the blade spins easily. Then turn the mower back over and try to pull the start cord -- it should pull normally now.

HOW TO CLEAN ROLLERS OF LEXMARK E120


Hi andjam01,

Please follow the steps below on how to clean the roller of Lexmark E120.

1. Remove the fill plug from the right side of the cartridge. (Developer roller facing away from you). Dump out any remaining toner from the hopper.

2. On the left side, remove the two small screws and the gear cover.

3. Remove the center screw on the developer roller cover.

4. Lift up the developer roller cover from the center, and remove. Be careful not to damage the plastic pins on the cover.

5. Remove the doctor blade spring.

6. The doctor blade is now loose. Carefully lift it out, watching the contact spring on the right side. Also, be careful not to damage the retaining blade that is located under the doctor blade.

7. On the large black drive gear, there is a locking star washer pressed onto the shaft. With a small pair of wire cutters, cut the old washer off, and remove. You can try to bend up the different legs of the washer, but that is very time consuming, and most likely at least one leg will break anyway and the washer will still have to be replaced.

8. Remove the large black drive gear. Make sure you don't loose the small flat washer from under where the star washer was.

9. On the white developer roller gear, take the tips of your small wire cutters, and place them into the two small holes. Spin the gear so the metal shaft is in the slot on the opposite side of the gear. Remove the gear.

10. Remove all the gears.

11. Remove the three screws and gear alignment plate.

12. With a small flat head jeweler's screwdriver, pry off the metal lock from the developer roller bushing.

13. Turn the developer roller bushing so the plastic tab is facing up.

14. Lift the developer roller out of the cartridge. The bushing will come off with the roller.

15. . Clean out any remaining toner from the hopper. Make sure the developer roller retaining blade does not get damaged!
-->Wipe the developer roller down with a clean lint free cloth. Testing is ongoing, but for now, do not use any chemicals to clean it.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Model # yg2047b. I had this fan installed in June, worked fine,now it hums..what could the problem be?


If the fan does not spin and the motor hums, you have a stuck rotor. It may be due to bushing/bearing alignment problem or a lubrication problem.
Try to spin the fan blade manually. It should turn freely, otherwise the rotor is stuck. Remove fan blade and put few drops of lubricating oil on the bushings/bearings and manually turn the shaft to free it up. Alignment of shaft and bushings/bearings must be after lubrication is done and the rotor is still stuck. Move the shaft up and down and side to side until it smoothly spin when manually turned.
