Re: Help with a Mosler 4216CL5

Not really a lot of maintenance to be done if everything is working right now.

Check all of the screws to make sure they are tight. If the wheels are turning sluggish, you can pull them off the curb, (keeping in order) and wipe off the post and the wheel contact points, then reassemble.

Again after any servicing, make sure to test full cycle with the door open before you shut it.

Re: Help with a Mosler 4216CL5

Sammy, there is one thing, which confuses me. Perhaps you have knowledge about this.

My understanding is/was there are the Mosler 5-X locks, which are friction fence locks with 4 wheels, and there are Mosler 6-X locks, which are friction fence locks with 3 wheels, and the B-6 is wrongly labeled. But the probably wrongly labeled B-6 is not a friction fence lock, just like this Yale viewtopic.php?p=119660#p119660 . It is not visible in Squelchtone's catalogue if it is a friction fence lock or if it is spring loaded. The same is the case with the HPC manual. So were the 5-X and 6-X locks at one point changed from friction fence to spring loaded fence?
