Force Control products are designed to operate for many years without repair. As with any product however, even Force Control products with Oil Shear Technology will eventually need to be repaired. At that point there are two options – repair it yourself, or return it for factory rebuild.
All Force Control products are rebuildable and parts are made available as individual pieces or rebuild kits. Due to the long service life and balanced design of Force Control products, it is unusual to replace just a bearing, friction disc or seal. By the time any of these items fail (during normal circumstances) there are probably other parts reaching the end of their normal life.
Should I Repair or get Factory Rebuild?
Although rebuilding most of Force Control products isn’t rocket science, it can be intimating if not done frequently and may require special tools. Therefore, it may be wiser to return the units to Force Control for a professional rebuild to like-new condition. Factory rebuilt units come with the same standard 1-year warranty as new units.
How to order spare parts
Please find service manuals here.
Many of the Force Control products have part kits available that include the most common items required for rebuilding a unit. For maximum life after repair, use all of the parts included in a kit. Additional single parts such as shafts can be purchased if required. Please contact sales with the model number or serial number of the product you are trying to repair.
