Plese help me t2300 error 21:13

System Error: 21:YZ
Problem Description: Failure moving Service Station
Corrective action: Try the following:
1. Switch the power off from the back of the product and disconnect the power cord. Check
the Primer Tubes. Reconnect the power cord and power on the product.
2. Make sure that the Service Station path is clear. Remove any visible obstacles (screws,
plastic parts, etc.) restricting the movement of the Service Station.
3. If the carriage has stopped over the service station, on the right side of the product, check
that the cutter is not activated. The cutter may be blocking the carriage over the service
station, preventing the service station from performing the movement correctly. The cutter
is on the left side of the carriage.
4. Perform the Service Station diagnostic test to troubleshoot the problem further. See
Service Station Test on page 102.
5. Replace the Service Station. See Service Station on pag

Bogs when blade is engaged

for this to happen you must have a bearing problem either in the gear box or cutter deck that has seized from rust or failed bearings. disconnect the cutter belts and see it t moves forward freely If so then turn each cutter spindle by hand and find which one won't turn or is rough in the movement.

I can't figure out what is wrong. When I try to use the razor the cutter seems frozen and doesnt move side to side. When I take off the foil I see that the cutter seems to move perfectly fine. I then...

If you are having the same problem with both your old and new foils and cutters it sounds like there is a problem with the oscillator in the swivel frame. Sometimes the plastic oscillator inside will partially break and it can not vibrate under the load of the foil and cutters.
This swivel frame is part of the 'drive unit' and can be found available at See link below for item and scroll down the item page for installation video

Is not cutting and cutter is on, also, it is printing double lines

Fault: Double line & paper is not cutting.
>Check encoder strip, any damage or dirty?
>Clean encoder strip, replace it..
Reason why its not cutting?: Carriage moves to left side to lock & bring the cutter to cut the paper, but if its not reaching proper calculated destination due to dirty or damaged encoder, it wont lock the cutter to bring it out result paper wont cut even cutter in on condition..

We have an Oster 78950-100-700 model and I dont' think it worked out of the package. It seems that the head does not move. It is like the bottom blade is putting to much pressure on the top blade and so...

The two screws of the blade guide are tightened completely. Adjust the tension between the blade and the blade guide with the large plastic screw on the side of the trimmer (this allows the blade to move rapidly from side to side). I plug it in at this time and when the cutting blade begins to move the clipper makes much louder noise. This is normal but it sounds like it is broken, it isn't. Adjust the cutter slightly past movement. You don't want it to bounce on the guide

How do you change the blades on a dw734 planer

Did you save the wrenches for the blades and the setting gauges? You need them. It is hard to do without. You have to take off the dust cover, should be called the finger cover, get the cutter head to lock up, it should have a pin on the right side to lock it from turning, loosen the jib screws,(bolts), and blow out he cutter head. Leave the adj screws where they are. Then do the other side, sharpen the knives, or get the new ones ready, don't answer the fone, or eat dinner at this time. The knife setter sets each knife to the same height and/or depth across the cutter head. It is a small C shaped thing that rides on the head and grabs the tip of the knife when it is at the right depth, they all have to be the same, and they just scrape the knife, they don't pull it or move it, it just touches it. Snug up the jib screw, and move to the middle, check and adj the height snug up the screw, move to the end, do the same, go back to the other end, check it again, use a small piece of wood to tap it down if you have to move it, when it looks good, torque it down, then do the other side the same way. I hope this doesn't have those tiny 2 sided knives in it? They are the worst, they have no meat, they don't cut worth a flip. You need the big knives, something with some meat to them. Check it out, hope this helps.

My simplicity serger SW432 wont cut

There are 2 blades, a fixed cutter and a moving cutter. The moving cutter should move approx 1/8" at it's lowest point past the fixed cutter. There should also be some pressure between the cutters

UP-DR100 Error 0008 problem

Problem: The Printer does not detect the Reverse position of the cutter during initialization.
Either there is a scrap piece of paper obstructing the path of the carriage that houses the cutter blade or more than likely impact on the lower left side of the printer causing a bend in the metal that holds the Reverse switch.
This switch will trigger a sensor telling the printer that the cutter has reached the Reverse position(left side)

The grinding noise is caused by the cutter carriage rubbing on the inner side of the door panel. The door panel shifted inward and is obstructing the path of the cutter blade.

Solution:Replace the door panel and check for damage on the left side of the cutter blade path and bend the metal piece to realign the switch so that the plastic carriage makes contact when reaching the left side. Or replace the whole cutter blade assembly.
Any replacement parts can be ordered from
