Question about Berkel 827E Gravity Feed Deli Meat Slicer

1 Answer

I have a berkel slicer 808. the slider arm is stiff i have lubed it and adjusted the carriage assembly and it is still stiff to push back and forth. Would the plastic bushings cause this??

I used to rebuild these things but it has been a while. I cannot remember or find the precise adjustments.

The Problem most likely is that remnants or build up is inside the shaft of the slide that the arm rides on, under the slicer you will see a rod that it rides on, most of the time it gets dirty and build up occurs, I may get some back lash but I unplug machine, lift up, heat up the rod and the part that rides on it with a blow torch and that melts all the junk away carefully not to burn yourself i slide it up, then remove remnants with steel wool (hot) then repeat and clean rod until moving free, then oil both with mineral oil. and if you see some one using veggie oil or pam on it beat them with a stick across the knuckles firmly until they understand, repeat if necessary. lol
Good luck

It s NOT uncommon to have new parts be slightly different than old version of the part and require slightly different hookup. The part number you have included does NOT appear to be a rocker switch.
I do see a rocker switch part number "823-00039-1 SWITCH, ROCKER" that may be what you need if it is a rocker type. The part number you gave is a "toggle" type with a "bat handle".
I suspect the problem is they gave you the wrong part.

SOURCE: Can we use common mineral oil to lubercate a

Mineral oil is safe to use. You NEVER NEVER want to use any type of vegetable oil or pan spray. It will do more damage than good to your slicer. The good food machine oils are a just a high quality mineral oil.

Band adjustment, how many turns out on 1987 300zx

Transmission Bands are adjusted when you rebuild a trans

They do not wear enough to need adjustment

Two things happen

If you turn the screw the wrong way, parts fall inside the trans
& you can't get it back together

Next-- if you need to adjust the band or bands, it is time for a rebuild, as many many parts are worn, long before the slightest band wear.

How to rebuild a Tecumseh Carburetor

You can read this article at Jacks Small Engines as well.
Tecumseh Carburetors are fairly simple units. The float model carbs are easy to rebuild/repair. Before you start, one thing you will need is a factory repair manual.
There are some common problems with carburetors that should be checked before you start a rebuild. Many times the following items will correct the trouble your engine is having. You will still need a repair kit to replace certain gaskets and seals that should be replaced whenever disturbed.
One of the more common problems is the flooding of the carb. If this is your complaint check the float first. Remove the float bowl, float pin and remove the float. Be careful that you do not loosen the float needle valve. Now shake the float and listen for gas inside. If the float sloshes, replace it with a new one. Replace the float needle valve seat and adjust the float per the factory manual. Replace the float bowl gaskets.
If you are experiencing performance problems and suspect the carb, you will have to remove it from the engine to correct the problem. After the carb is off the engine there is one thing you need to check before going any further. Remove the float as above. Now hold the choke and throttle butterflies so that you can shake the carb without them making a sound. Shake the carb and listen for it to rattle. If you do not hear the rattle, the emulsion tube is stuck. This tube is sealed into the body of the carb during manufacturing and can not be replaced. The carburetor will need to be replaced. Also if the aluminum body of the carb is corroded inside, any rebuild will only be a temporary fix. Once the corrosion has started it can not be stopped.
If everything checks out up to here, a rebuild and cleaning should fix the carb. However there is one more tricky thing you will need to do. You must remove the welch plug on the side of the carb. This can be done by driving a sharpened small punch or screw driver through the plug and popping it out. Take extreme care when doing this procedure. There are two jets cast into the carb body under this welch plug. If you damage them the carb will have to be replaced. With the welch plug removed and the main jet(in the bowl nut) out the three holes that need to be cleaned are exposed. Using a piece of soft tag wire clean these holes. Now clean the complete carb with carb cleaner.
Re-assemble the carb. Make sure that the needle valve seat is completely down into its bore. After driving in the new welch plug, paint it with finger nail polish to seal it. Adjust the float height using a #4 twist drill as directed in the repair manual.
Now that your carb is rebuilt don't drop the ball on the 90 yard line. Replace the gaskets between the carb and the engine, and the carb and the air cleaner. One common mistake made is to fail to replace the fuel line between the carb and the fuel filter/tank. If the carb was full of dirt or varnish the fuel line will also be. Plus when the carb or fuel line is removed, the inside of the hose usually is damaged. Small fragments of hose materials can break loose and flow into the carb. This will ruin the job that you just completed.
After the carb is remounted to the engine it must be adjusted correctly. You will need a repair manual to do this. Remember that the idle circuit must be adjusted first. Without the idle circuit working correctly you will never get the main jet adjusted correctly

Astra alternator

Usually an alternator only needs bearings, brushes and possibly diodes and regulator. Most people rebuilding an alternator replace all of them. If you haven't rebuilt one or helped someone rebuild one it can be a little trickey. Some require that you solder the diode plate, others need very precise assembly. Often a rebuild kit costs more than a rebuilt alternator.

Is there an adjustment screw for top screen?? My top screen is have issues with black. The screen is not always readable..Out of focus with kinda dark green instead of black. Already replaced it twice....

The adjustment for the upper LCD is in the battery compartment, open it up, remove the battery. you will see 2 adjustment screw at the bottom, using a precision screw driver, turn it very slowly and don't push it.

Put back the battery, turn it on, adjust it again if you are not satisfied.
Hope that helps you!

What could be the problem with the carb if going through way to much gas? 2 barrel carb &manual choke? F150 doesn't want to run very good when cold. Truck just guzzels the gas after started. Got a 302...

Possible things to be considered: Float level too high, needle has a bad seat and won't shut off, vacuum leak (either internal or base gasket), choke not properly adjusted.

My money would go on a carb. rebuild kit (but only if you feel comfortable attempting it) it's not all that difficult, but you MUST be (1) an absolute nut about cleaning it all very well, and (2) the various gaps, clearances, adjustments, must be made with excruciating precision.

This will be a lot cheaper than a rebuilt carb., and you'll get the satisfaction of doing it yourself.

While you're at it do a general tune up.....plugs, points condenser, wires , air filter, PCV, etc.

Replaced lamp. Set was working. Have not turned it on in a good number of weeks. Now no pix green led lights and after about 1 minute lamp red light comes on. Used reset and same sequence occurs. filter is...

I have a possible help, but I do not know if it is a solution.

I remember fixing that, but it took me quite a while because I got deeper into the set than just where it told me to vacuum? There are a bunch of nooks and crannies that get filled because that filter does not catch it all.

There is the thing a ma jig that that filter is protecting, maybe the lamp? And I took out the lamp and vacuumed around it?

And I also seem to remember figuring out where the sensor was, and I may have cleaned that off with a Q Tip and some alchohol.

I am not an electrical engineer, der. But, I am good at figuring out what I need to when the situation arises. I believe I had trouble with getting the clean filter thing to go off too. And there are a limited amount of things that can be the sensor.

Hopefully, this loose McGiver type answer will inspire and spur some of the engineers on this site to help you with a more precise fix. I went to school with engineers. They are soooooo precise.

Best of Luck!

Quilting seam allowance

When you turn your machine on it automatically sets up for a straight stitch with the needle centered. Just guide the right edge of your fabric along the line marked 15 on the throat plate and you'll have very close to a 5/8" seam. If you need more precision you can adjust your needle position to the left or the right by using the stitch width and mirror setting buttons.
