The part that holds the advance needle keeps getting stuck at the top of the tape guide. How do I stop this from happening?

The Gooser Needle (the small needle that advances the tape) is attached to a white plastic tube called the Gooser Guide( part #054111F). If the Gooser Guide is getting stuck at the top of the Tape Guide, this area probably needs to be lubricated. Make sure to keep this area clean and free of dried joint compound and use Ames Bazooka Oil to keep the moving parts lubricated. Smooth operation of the Gooser Guide piece will ensure easy cutting and advancement of the tape.
