Answers :

THESE BRUSHROLLS HAVE A RUBBER PAD WHICH IS CALLED A CLUTCH PAD. THIS MAY BE WORN, OR THE SLIDERS MAY JUST NEED A SMALL WASHER WHICH YOU CAN GET FROM YOUR LOCAL RICCAR DEALER. ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOUR LINKAGE ROD IS CONNECTED PROPERLY. ROD SHOULD BE ON THE BOTTOM PLATE SIDE, IF YOU HAVE THE MACHINE TURNED OVER WITH THE BOTTOM PLATE OFF IT SHOULD BE ON TOP OF THE BRUSHROLL.
