Please help......binding up

Postby Arthur Ledet » Thu, Feb 23 2006, 12:16PM

today my 40hp table vaccum was making a very loud grinding noise and i took a look at it and the turbine is binding up/grinding in the turbine housing. just trying to see if anyone has heard of this before and how to fix it? right now i am looking at it and it is fine until i put the cover on the last side. it looks to me that the bearings hold the blades in the turbine in the right place. I believe that there is to much play in the shaft b/c i can get it to stop grinding until i put the last cover on it. just need to know if there is an adjustment i am missing. thanks in advance.

Hi Arthur,

You might want to call Thermwood tech support at 800-221-3865 and maybe they have heard of this before.
