Update - what to do with this n-50?
It just arrived and I unpacked it and wanted to test it out. The whip attachment was still on, but I could not get it off! I see that it slides down a shaft, and over to the side and slightly up, you do this whille pushing up on the spring mechanism. I've had other pieces of equipment that worked like that, OK, easy enough, but it wouldn't let me undo it because the thing spins and there's nothing to hold it against or to grab to keep it from spinning. Finally with brute force, I got it.
Next,it rocks a bit - I think the metal bottom is lower than the feet. All feet are there, but they, I think are a bit higher than the bowl holder part. is this typical with age? It looks to be in great condition (hardly any scratches), and it's a newer make (black knob on power lever) Seller said it was used in a research and development lab for a Fortune 500 company. Mixing chemicals? Make-up samples? Whatever, i'll thoroughly clean it.
Next, the motor is fine on speed one and three, but it hums/is noisy on second speed. What does that mean?
One of the bowls is for the n-50, the other I think is for a KA (rimless).
The tag and numbers, some of which I have no idea what they mean:
Don Mills Ontario
Serial number: 99-700-835
Temp. 40. CAND? (can't read my own handwriting)
So, what do I do? I tried to find answers, but as an uncommon machine, that's not easy. I paid nearly $900 for this with shipping and insurance for a $2200 machine. It was described as great condition and I'm not sure I call this great condition, but maybe I'm being too harsh... but really... not sure what all these problems mean - easy fixes, normal or what?
