Hello and a happy new year to you all

I have a question regarding the spider wheel. Everything is working but once I turn the machine on the spider points at 7 oclock instead of 1 oclock. It's pointing everything oposite. As I don't want to break anything to solve this, I thought I'd ask here if anyone could give me tips on how to solve this? Maybe tips on how to remove the spider without breaking it?

Thanks all

I think you have a set screw through the collar. Just loosen that, rotate the spider assembly 180 degrees and retighten. Check the manual parts section. Might be a drawing in there.

Hi Cody and thanks for your reply. I couldn’t find any assembly regarding the spider wheel in the manual. Only a picture of it.
The board is fixaded by 4 screws. I tried to loosen them but the spider prevents me from turning. Do I need to loosen something else, perhaps the middle part of the motor? Im not certain whats holding the spider.

Thanks again in advance for the help.

You could simply rotate the entire assembly 180 degrees. Remove the 4 screws, rotate the assembly 180 and put the screws back in. The only thing are the two connectors and wiring to them. Disconnect them and after you rotate, install the connectors. Shouldn't be any reason to remove the spider or loosen set screws.

Hi paolinux. Yes my issue is solved. I removed the spider from the pointer. I was then able to remove the board out (with the pointer) and turn it 180°. Put it back in and also put the spider back on the pointer.
Hope this helps you.
