Here is a simple maintenance routine that can save you a lot of trouble. Begin by taking off the spool, then clean the shaft and oil it. Use lubricants that are specifically for it, not household oil because household oil will thicken and harden faster. While removing the parts, remember to store the parts properly to avoid searching for them when you are done.

Where necessary, use a toothbrush to scrub off the grease. Once degreased, allow the parts to dry properly before oiling.
