Got a call from Craig today to let me know it's the motor that's causing the noise. Hoping to sort out the bushes.

Thank you for the update - that will explain the regular scraping sound then Stuart - just curious but was the projector once stored in a damp location - any evidence of rust or brown dust inside the lower rear casing?

Good question Kev, I don't recall seeing anything like that when I had the back off, but then again who knows what the machine was subject to in the nigh-on 30 years before I got it? Would you think a damp environment would cause the brushes to corrode and fall apart? Excuse my ignorance but are they like the wee brushes you used to get on the underside of a Scalextric car?

I was thinking along those lines Stuart - I have never had the need to strip a motor on a 16CL so don't know if they are carbon or wire brushes - I've owned seven of them in the past (six halogen and one Xenon) and recall the Xenon has a different motor to the halogen versions.

You are right all sorts could have happened to any of our projectors they are old now and could once have been a bit rusty not just dusty!

Indeed, I have (or rather Bill does) a Xenon too but the motor is kaput with zero chance of finding a replacement anywhere on the planet it seems.

Had that 16-CL once in the past. As far as I remembered it uses induction motor,hence no brush to worn out/binding.
So what caused the noise? I frankly don't know. [Roll Eyes]

Hi Stuart it should be possible to get the motor rewound/built etc I would think.

Worth it as a nice machine once done etc.

Best Mark.

Greetings Stuart
Seeing that you live in the UK
This must be a 250 volt motor?
I have a 120 volt one for sale for the 16 cl
Refurbished $100.00 plus shipping

Hi Rich, yes I'm UK based so would presumably need a 240v motor. By the way are you talking about the xenon or standard version?
