  • K-60 Troubleshooting-Again

    On 06-02-08,I posted a problem with the K-60sp.Problem was a stripped belt,and defective cord.The repair shop corrected this.Thank you,Ben-Gear Junkie,Plumber Rick,and Tyman.Now,there is another puzzler with the k-60.The adjustment sleeve would not adjust down far enough to grip the 5/8" cable.I have not opened the machine to check,nor looked on the Ridgid site to check why.I am open to any reasons why.Thanks in advance.Kenneth.

        I'd try that first. Check the training videos and it shows how to field strip the k60 to get to the jaws.

                  kenneth, my guess is there is dirt or debris caught between the 3 collets of the jaws preventing the adjuster to squeeze down on the jaws.

                  take off the front half with an allen wrench and clean the jaws.
