Hi there — This is my first post. I have an SP-15 (serial #26151), and I looked through my manual, but am still unsure of the part names. It appears the gear on my motorized roller is broken. This is the gear that the belt / pulley (?) runs on to actually move the roller. For clarity, here’s the area in question:
I was printing this afternoon, and paused, turning off the press and raising the rollers to answer the phone. I came back about 10 minutes later, and when I turned it back on, nothing was moving. When I looked around, I realized the pulley / belt (?) had detached from the roller gear. As I attempted to get it back on, I discovered THIS:
Yikes. A chunk of the gear is suddenly missing. The strange thing is that I didn’t hear anything break — just turned off the press and raised the rollers to answer the phone. I found a few pieces of the gear — they appear to be clear plastic.
This one gives a really clear picture of how much of it is missing — quite a bit.
I’m hoping I can just find another gear and replace it, but I’m not sure how it all fits together. Does anyone know if this is a readily available part, and if so how I’d go about replacing it?
Thanks so much,
