Atmos help please:
A bit more than 6 months ago, I repaired and serviced an Atmos that had been in pretty rough shape. I got everything cleaned, serviced and adjusted according to the Atmos repair notes and the DVD instructions by Gerald Jaeger. It immediately started running like it should and kept perfect time.
Now, 6 months or more later, it slowed down over a few days and came to a stop. With time-lapse video, I was able to see that the problem seemed to be that it wasn't winding as it should.
I removed the bellows, checked that they were functional, checked the winding mechanism, swapped out for other known working bellows, adjusted the length of the winding chain, let the spring down, and checked if it would wind from a completely let-down state … nothing!
Every component seems to work as it should, but the assembled system doesn't seem to want to work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
