Keith Monks Record Cleaning Machines are built to lastAs you would expect from a piece of equipment that uses such well engineered (and expensive.) heavy duty components, Keith Monks Record Cleaning Machines are built to last and, in most cases, are relatively easy to service by almost anybody with moderate electrical and mechanical engineering experience.

The one thing our Machines don’t like is not being used - many parts are self-lubricating, plus the rubber-type components tend to seize and crack if not allowed to flex regularly. Unfortunately there are a lot of Machines out there that have been ‘mothballed’ away in cupboards or (even worse) roof lofts and attics. So, buyer beware: if you see one on ebay or similar, always ask where it has been stored and how often it has been used recently.

However all is not lost even if this has happened and, with the renewed interest in especially LP and 45rpm vinyl records and record care, many people are now wanting their Record Cleaning Machines restored to their former glory. If you feel unable to take on the project yourself, we have two Record Cleaning Repair Centres in the UK, our new office in the USA has full servicing facilities available, as have the various Keith Monks retailers around the world – see the Worldwide Retailers page for contact details.

The build quality of Keith Monks Record Cleaning Machines in many cases does make them worth servicingStandard procedure is we take the Record Cleaning Machine in for evaluation and testing. A report is then produced, outlining the necessary work to be done and the costs involved. There is a nominal charge to make the investigations and prepare the report.

The build quality of Keith Monks Record Cleaning Machines in many cases does make them worth servicing and overhauling and, if they’ve been reasonably well looked after, usually makes the work a very worthwhile investment.
