thank you it was very helpful, I like to mention I could not find the second notch in the mixer and when I put the new set of carbons, the machine did not work , so I do not know if it requires further adjustment or just I did it wrong

Hi z Mark. Its the wee hours but I will get my mixer out in morning. I bought brushes a couple of years ago but it still smoked on me.maybe I didn't get them in the little box. The other thing I did was on the very back I took the cap off where the wires are and I don't know how to reattach. I thought the smoke was coming from back there. J have had it 40 yes without a problem and neighbor borrowed it and brought it back broken. Really cannot afford a new one. Really appreciate your brush directions. Thank you so much.
