Hey Guys,


How hard is it to service the motor in a Premier Swivel Top?  I was running mine the other day, and noticed when I turned it on, it had a funny smell.  It also sounds like the bearings may be dry from sitting NIB for so long.  When I turned it off, you can definately hear the bearings racing, and they sound dry.  I really love the machine, and don't want to risk damaging it by running it if the bearings are dry.


One small problem is I only have experience repairing Kirbys. Also, where would I get parts if I needed them?


Thanks for your input.
