  • Re: Beogram 3000 bearings and idler

    Ok I installed the motor and put everything together and then the noise was unbearable. I sounded like something was grinding inside. Took it apart again and this time tried to center the motor using four round toothpicks. There's two "holes" on each side of the rotor, I stuck the toothpicks in those before bolting the motor together and then removed them again. Put everything together again and voila no noise. Sorry forgot to take pictures, next time.. Peter

    [quote user="Saint Beogrowler"] I don’t understand your question. It only goes back together one way. [/quote] In my original printed copy of the BG 1202/3000 service manual (see pic) it is stated that the motor should be centered using two gauges before it is bolted together. I found a scanned copy online where this is not mentioned. Peter

    [quote user="Peter8300"] Great description thanks, very helpful. How do you guys get the motor centered when reassembling it? And do you replace the felt? Peter [/quote] No one? Do you just play it by ear or? ;-) On another note I'm trying to upgrade my membership to Silver and it seems something is out of order, I'll start a thread about that at the appropriate place. Peter

  • Re: Infusing beogram's bearings…

    Old post I know. I'm planning to use the same method as conserving food. A jar with rubber between the jar and the lid. Oil and bearings in, close the lid and slowly heat the the jar in water until 90C degrees or so. Hopefully that will create a vacuum but maybe not at the oil has a boiling point of 300C. Hmmm might rethink that.

    Thanks Søren, I actually have an original service manual in Danish but somehow it slipped my mind to take it out. Regardless I still have no idea why the lift plate is loose... Will investigate further, maybe just take the whole damn thing apart build it up again or not...! Peter

    Goddammit! Next problem. I wanted to adjust the tonearm to be parallel on a perfectly fine working BG1202 but something went wrong. The tonearm dropped about 10 cm from the platter and it wouldn't go back up. Turned the deck around, nothing to see, the cam wheel in the right position. Turned it around again and the arm fell out of it's socket. Apparently I didn't secure the screw enough or something! Anyway I can put it back on but now the lift plate is loose and no matter what I do I

    [quote user="Søren Mexico"] If your muting switch is this type, check here but try Martins contact spray first [/quote] Thank you Søren, I did see your great post about this, but I was hoping there would be a simpler solution :-) I'll try the contact spay first. Peter

    [quote user="Dillen"] Yes, it's important NOT to lubricate the small cam arms. They MUST run dry and clean. They should be free to "rattle". The muting switch can be given a shot of contact cleaner. I use "Kontakt 60" for tasks where I cannot take things apart and then exercise the contact a dozen times or more. Kontakt 60 evaporates almost entirely and leaves no sticky residue. Martin [/quote] Thanks but it seems like you would have to take everything apart to get
