RTI Tapechek XCL 300 Maintenance

RTI Tapechek XCL 300 Maintenance Overview

The VHS tape cleaning and conditioning machine maintenance notes.


  • Periodically vacuum the interior - at least when changing tissue
  • Instructions for changing tissue as in the lid.  The tissue is capped on each end by a thumb screw (no tools needed).  The tissue cannot be reused (unless someone figures out a way of rewinding the tissue onto the spool).
  • Clean the draw arm's spindle with Windex or such.  The centre of the spindle is a little rubbery.
  • I also cleaned the other shafts and parts with glass cleaner....careful of the scrapper as it is extremely sharp.
