Cardboard scrap edge clearing machines play a vital role in the recycling industry, efficiently removing excess material from boxes. However, like any mechanical device, they can experience issues from time to time. One common problem is a stiff switch, often caused by the switch being too tight.
Fortunately, this issue can be resolved through a simple two-step process. In this article, we will discuss the steps to troubleshoot and fix the problem. For further inquiries or more details, feel free to contact CHAOYI MACHINERY.
Step 1: Applying Lubricant to the Switch:
The first step to address the stiff switch issue is to lubricate the switch point. Follow the instructions below:
- Gather the necessary supplies: You will need a suitable lubricant, such as machine oil, and a soft cloth.
- Ensure the machine is turned off and disconnected from the power source for safety reasons.
- Locate the stiff switch on your cardboard scrap edge clearing machine.
- Using the soft cloth, clean any dust or debris around the switch area.
- Apply a small amount of machine oil to the switch point. Be careful not to overdo it, as excessive oil can cause other issues.
- After applying the oil, gently press the switch a few times to allow the lubricant to penetrate and loosen up the mechanism.
- Test the switch functionality by turning the machine on and off multiple times. In most cases, this should resolve the problem.
If the problem persists despite following these steps, proceed to the next step.
Step 2: Disassembling and Refurbishing the Switch Component:
If the lubrication method did not resolve the stiff switch issue, it may be necessary to disassemble and refurbish the switch component. Please note that this step requires caution, and if you are not comfortable performing this task, it is advisable to seek professional assistance. Follow the steps below:
- Prepare the required tools: You will need a larger screwdriver and fine-grit sandpaper.
- Ensure the machine is turned off, unplugged, and completely cooled down before proceeding with the disassembly.
- Identify the switch component that requires attention.
- Using the larger screwdriver, carefully unscrew and remove the switch part from its position.
- Inspect the switch for any visible damage or signs of wear. Clean off any dirt or residue that may have accumulated.
- Take the fine-grit sandpaper and gently sand the contact points and areas of the switch to remove any corrosion or roughness.
- Once the switch has been properly sanded and cleaned, reattach it to its original position using the screwdriver.
- Test the switch by turning the machine on and off to ensure smooth functionality.
