I have a old Pasta Express X-2000 machine. During the extrusion process, it appears that the gears are slipping. It makes a terrible "banging" noise. Any ideas on how to fix it or who would do this type...
Hi, Mike Sorry I can't help you but I found this 12 year old information on the net about certain Pasta Express X-2000. In the event you can't get the machine repaired I've been looking for some of the dies that fit over the extruder.
Gerry MHere's some recall info.FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE November 25, 1997 Release # 98-032 CPSC: Jane Francis (301) 504-0580 Ext. 1187
CPSC, Creative Technologies Corp. Announce Recall to Replace Lids on Pasta Machines WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Creative Technologies Corp. of Brooklyn, N.Y., is voluntarily recalling about 50,000 pasta machines to replace some of their lids. When the safety cutoff switch on the lid does not activate, consumers' fingers can be severely injured if their hand is placed into the mixing bowl.
CPSC and Creative Technologies are aware of 11 incidents of the machine unexpectedly turning on, resulting in nine injuries including cut, crushed and severed fingers.
The lid replacement program involves the Takka Pasta and Dough machine (model X1000), and the Pasta Express machines (models X2000, X3000 and X4000). Only pasta machines that have serial numbers up to 78209 are subject to this replacement program. The model and serial numbers are located on a label on the bottom of the machine. "Pasta Express TM by CTC" or "Takka Pasta and Dough by CTC" is on the front of the machine. The pasta machines are beige or white. Some machines have chrome-plated front panels. Through this voluntary recall, Creative Technologies will provide consumers with a replacement lid.
The machines are sold in cardboard boxes identifying the model of the machine. A photograph of the machine is on the front of the box.
Department stores, mail order catalogs and warehouse clubs nationwide sold the pasta machines from 1989 through 1992 for between $90 and $200.
