Hello. I tried to run an Elmo ST-180E M after a very long period of inactivity and both belts immediately broke. Does anyone know how difficult it is to replace these? (It is the first time I've even had the back case open.) Is there a place to access instructions, eg a service manual? And is there anywhere you'd recommending purchasing the belts? Thanks for any help!

It's not actually that bad: you may need to remove a small metal clip to get at the pulley for the rear spindle, but as long as you put it back together the same way you took it apart you should do fine.

Thanks so much! I read somewhere that you need to adjust the circuit board with a potentiometer and somewhere else that you need to adjust tension -- neither of which I was prepared to do.
