I disassembled the machine for cleaning. Thereafter, I could not reassemble it successfully. The rod on which the upper wheel is mounted I attached to the screw, spring and tightener knob. I then found that when tightened, the wheel mounting was drawn up and jammed in its holder, far above the level of the screw which controls upper wheel tracking, sited at the lower end of the mounting rod. I am at a loss as to how I should progress. There must be a piece missing but I cannot imagine where the fault lies unless it is at the top of the wheel mounting rod. Exploded drawings show a bearing on the tensioner mechanism but I do not recollect my machine having such. Anyway, this is unlikely to have a bearing on the main problem. It occurs to me that had I put the blade back on then tensioned it, this might have got rid of some of the excess.I would be grateful for any advice as to what went wrong and how I might correct it.

Have you got any pictures of where the problem is maybe we can determine whether there is a peace missing or not
