Fix a broken Sizzix with this simple Letsfixit guide. Enjoy!
Remove the black cap off the handle end
Using the right size allen key undo the screw and slide the handle off
Using the Phillips head screwdriver undo the screw shown by the arrows
Once all the screw are taken off you will need to use some force to take off the black sides. They are clipped in but with some patience they will come apart.
Next is to take off the middle handle and then the plates either side these will come apart easy. All the parts should ow be off the main metal rollers.
Next is to brush out any fluff in the rollers mine had a bit because it gets a workout with felt... Take off the top small cog by pulling off the plastic stopper and then the cog.
Now this is where my skateboarding days come in handy....underneath the cogs there are bearings very similar to the ones used in skateboarding wheels and if the get dirt and dust in them they tend not to move or get stuck. So to fix this put some sewing machine oil or any machine oil you have and put it on the bearings.
Put the small cog and stopper back on... next slide the cranking handle on and give it a few turns all the cogs should move and this will send the oil into the bearings to lubricate them...After a few turns everything should be moving smoothly Now to put it all back together Just go backwards on the way you pulled it apart Plates on first Top carrying handle Clip on sides and screw back in Put cranking handle on Use allen key to put back screw for cranking handle Then place the black cap back You should now have a fully serviced and function sizzix again I hope this has helped anyone who has a broken sizzix and need to fix it
