Thanks so much for this link, Sue. I just received the new sponge bar I ordered. I will definitely peruse that site on machine maintenance and found a great tutorial on rebuilding it. If I can follow it, I will have a spare bar.susieknitter said:
I notice you are in LA. Why don't you take it or ask someone at Newton's in Anaheim for help. They're not too far from your. 714-634-9116. They have more experience in this sort of problem. If you take it in you might get help sooner.dogyear said:Thank you for your reply. Using a blow dryer crossed my mind. Your caution about the possibility of the plastic melting is really good information. I just got the machine about a month ago. I love it! I'll research how to open the innards for cleaning.
