    :nah: So yeah, first "problem" with a Reo haha.

    Anyone ever drop their Reo and now the door doesn't slide down? It landed on a tile floor. It worked an hour and a half ago when I filled it up, just not now. It's almost as if something is causing it to catch and not slide down. Maybe the groove is gone on the mod, maybe that corner is bent in too much for it to work. It does not work with another door either, before y'all ask :p However, I can still get the door off by sliding it up. It's not that big of a deal, I just was curious if anyone else had this happen.

    get a small file I use a triangle shapes one and clean the grooves out the aluminium is soft and has squished in so the door won't slide. you may loose a little more colour but it will be behind the door so shouldn't matter

    Been there done that.
    I used a small thin file and opened up the door groove at the bottom corner just like in your picture.

    Thanks y'all, that's what I figured I would need to do. I just want to ask first before I attempted it. I don't care too much about color being taken off, this Reo is scratched enough :D

    I did too - but didn't even need to file, I "bent it back" somehow, and it's perfect again.
    :D

    Yeah a sharp flat head might open it up as well if it's just bent in..

    Crazy as its something that's never happend to one oh my many reos in 5+ years.

    Be very careful if you use a flathead screwdriver even the precision ones can chip off that bottom corner of the track edge if it's cracked.

    Thank you, I forgot to update this actually. I used one of my screwdrivers for building coils. I didn't put a ton of pressure, but enough to scrape it a little. It works just as good as before now.
