Question about Dept 56 Department 56 Snow Village "Hockey Practice" Animated Table Piece Scen

1 Answer

The skaters won't move on my Dept. 56 Village Animated Skating Pond. The motor is running but I'm wondering if the problem is the magnets on the bottom of the skaters. Any ideas?

Plugging in and I can hear the motor running. The skaters are placed in the correct positions on the ponds. In the past they would skate as soon as placed in position on the pond. Now they don't move at all. I haven't used this for two years. Could the magnets on the bottom of the skaters be the problem? Can it be fixed?

Try taking off the yellow disks on the bottom of the players. Also, take the skating rink off and examine if the belt is turning the main gear around. It could be slipping.

If you do that, would you kindly examine the magnet which runs the player around the rink. I am at a loss as to what keeps the tension of that magnet against the pattern which is on top of the main gear. A picture would be great. If so, please send to Thanks

You can build your own little filter by placing is in a container, like yorgart, with lid, but before you do punch holes into it no more than 1/8 inch all around. the more holes the better. this way your pump does not **** something into the chamber that will stop the propeller. I have done this and it works like a charm. Also you can use pond pots, the ones that have many slits in them.
Magnetic Drive Pond pumps can be left in the pond even if it froze. These pumps are great for weather. Once water unfreezes, pump will start again.
