New Mainsprings: If your motor doesn't wind up, more than likely your mainspring(s) are broke. Usually one spring breaks at a time but it is possible that all springs are broke. When servicing a broken spring, the spring is removed and the inside of the canister is cleaned. We install the new spring(s) with fresh grease and test the springs to make sure everything is hooked properly. It's not recommended to try removing the spring barrels on your own. If you're uncopfortable with handling the motor or have no experience, it's highly recommended to send the entire motor to us. While we have the motor, we could also clean it for you at the cost quoted in the Motor Cleaning section above. We could also test everything to make sure your machine is playing at it's potential. If you have any questions about this service or any of our services, please ask by phone (800-239-4188) or by email
