You know, I rather think I have, but I can't for the life of me remember
what was causing it. Was it a mechanical alignment issue maybe ? I have a
dim recollection of something geared being a tooth out. A further dim
recollection is of letting it settle in the jammed position, then
de-powering and undoing the screw in the centre of the carousel, and lifting
it to disengage it from its drive so that it could be rotated to line up
correctly, before dropping it down again, and refitting the screw. I might
be thinking of something else entirely, but something is chiming deep in the
shadowy recesses of what passes for my mind ... :-)
