I was tired, had indulged in my evening cholesterol lowering agent and thought I could just take a quick look. After I removed the screws holding the bottom piece in place I tipped the machine right side up and a piece fell out. I spent the next 40 minutes trying to figure out how to get it back together. I did it. But I wonder if the shuttle is now out of time I will figure that out later.
I am not too worried. I think that somehow I can figure this out. The machine moves better after a drink (the machine's, well, ahem, mine too) and some grease but something isn't quite right.
And in case you haven't had time to scour the WWW the way I did last night trying to figure out what part is missing, check out this photo and then you will see.
