HORIZON booklet maker SPF-200A/L – Error 1170

SPF-200A Error

Your HORIZON booklet maker SPF-200A/L starts giving the error message 1170, the stitching motor operations error.  

When this error is displayed it is time to check the chain that is between the main shaft and the motor. At times, the chain loosens up and is responsible for this error message. 

It is this chain that drives the clinchers and stitching head and raises the stitching head to the desired position. 


To overcome this problem, the best way is to tighten the chain. How will you do that? Well, it is pretty simple.

All you need to do is loosen the two screws on the sides of the plate that holds the motor. Move the motor to the side and you can easily tighten the chain properly.
