Michell Focus One motor

Post by cooksferry » 15 Mar 2004 18:33

can anyone tell me if the motor on the Focus One needs to be lubed and if so, how.
Mine has a small noise(doesn't interfer with playback) which goes away if i put a light load on the platter while it's turning(finger on the edge).
Is it normal for the AC motor to make this noise?

Hi Robin

What sort of noise are you talking about .... is it a hum or more of friction type sound ? Sorry if that's a stupid question :)

Regards
Phil

Add a few drops of oil where the spindle enters the motor top and bottom.
I use a small screwdriver to do this generally. Usually works.
