Subject: Compak K10 PB Doser Adjustment Knob
 

I am trying to turn the doser adjustment knob on the K10 PB, but it is very difficult to turn it.  It seems stuck and wants to turn the whole doser star with it.  Is it supposed to be a very smooth action or am I missing something?  I watched Compak's quick start video ( linked to correct time ) and it seems like really not much force should be required to adjust the knob.  Any hints on what I'm doing wrong?

It should turn easily but also can get struck. Hold the knob with one hand & pull the doser lever forward. This should break it free & allow easy adjustment.

That worked like a charm.  Thanks a bunch!

One more question -- I could be just overthinking this, but if I were to do the doser tape mod, should the tape be food safe?
