Hi Angie898

Thanks for getting in contact via RC.

It sounds like your blades need to be replaced. You've had a great run of 5 1/2 years with the originals. You're machine will have a new lease on life when these are replaced and your chopping will be first rate again.

We have passed your postonto our Customer Service team. Someone will be in contact with you shortly.

We hope to get you back working with your machine soon.

Warm regards

Please help. I went to use my TM5 for the first time in a couple of weeks & the blades are making a nasty shrieking, grinding sound.

I have disassembled the blades & cleaned the green O ring etc, and discovered what appears to be black grease where the blade locks into the machine. There are no other signs of wear or tear, & it has never skipped a beat or made any unusual noises before. I have had it for 5 1/2 years now.

Is it possible I just need to replace the blade set?

Thankyou in advance for any assistance or advice.
