Ok
Usually this can be caused by a number of issues.
Blades binding against the bottom set of knives....is a common one but on older machines it is usually the main cylinder seizing up/drying out.
remedy is to remove the cylinder, strip it down and clean and grease before reassembling.
If you have a very old Morso H there can be an issue removing the the main distributor connector so be careful.
Give me a call if you want to discuss this...!
