SOURCE: dean sings his arms and body move but his mouth does not i saw that someone replace d the string is there a diagram to show the workings of the doll

slide tux collar down and find 4 staples in neck, with small flat screwdriver work stales from neck, they are quite long and it takes some time. then with thumb under mouth at chin, gently wiggle and pull owtwards until mouth slides from head, mouth must be removed before head will lift from neck. once head removed, you will see drive motor near top that drives mouth. there should be a smoll nylon string connected to small plastic wheel on end of this motor, most times the adheasive that hold this string in place has let loose and string is still in tact. before reconnecting press activation button and be sure motor is spinning, if so simply reconnect string to plastic end, and reassemble head I used 2 part epoxy (JB Quick) Note if motor is not turning when activated then this too needs repaired

How do you get the string to come out of the spool whilst the snipper is in use ?


There are two or more types,
1: provided the spool is full and wound on correctly, to increase the length of nylon you tap the head of the snipper on the ground while it's spinning. This should release extra cutting string.
2: others are simply feed by the centrifugal force governed by a spring in the head. When you wrap the nylon string around the spool, then feed the nylon out the holes provided, the weight of the nylon string pulls the required amount of nylon out so you can continue to work.
Others are manual, simply pull the nylon out by hand to the desired length.
Note that you are only cutting with the very tip of the nylon string, not the full length.

Our Singing Bing Crosby Santa doesn't move his mouth any longer, but his head and microphone still move while he's singing. Can we get his mouth repaired somewhere????


I have had the same trouble. I had to take his head apart and there is a string that is attached to the motor that works his mouth. The string has come unattached and needs fixed. The head is put on with a type of staple around the neck.Take them out and you will see what I mean.

Gemmy Santa Bear mouth does not move


Hi,
I would like to first tell you what the problem is with either your Bing or Bear head. Inside the head is a motor that works the mouth. On this rotating motor is a pulley type system, which has a twine or you could call a heavy string piece. It is attached to the motor, and when the is activated it rotates the thread round the spindle on the motor and the mouth operates.. It is quite a difficult to take this head apart. I worked on my Bing for some time to find out this problem.. The string comes away with use and of course time, that is is why the mouth no longer moves. If you wish to try and repair, you first have to remove the head from the base. If you look there are 4 heavy duty staples just round the collar neck area. They will come out with a small head screwdriver or something pointed. Just work it slowly under till staple raises up, then just pull it out. Once they are all removed the head should be loose. This is only to give you access to seeing the internals firstly. Now comes the hardest part. The soft moving part of the mouth needs to be removed. You need to work it of slowly as there is a glue base on it, so care is needed here and can take time. If you managed this all is left is the metal pin it was on. Now inside is the plastic unit that moves the mouth this is glued in which is the main problem. And this is the issue, it is pushed on and the only way is to remove is to have a precision head screwdriver and work it off... Best done by someone who is quite good with their hands and very patienced. Because it may break. Took me severals hours to remove. When you get it off the internal workings will come out of the head. There is no other way of doing this. Having the head loose allows you to look at the piece and the workings. A small torchlight held by someone is best as you work out the mouth fitting.....As i said it is no easy job and took me long periods of time to get to this point. I wish you all the luck in achieving this.......
