How does the tree come apart to replace the drive motor for the trains

the trains no longer turn around the tree, but I can hear the motor running inside. How does the tree come apart so I can repair the motor or gears so the trains will move again

My problem seems to be the motor (plays music but no motion). have it apart but at bottom (gearbox) level, only visible things are speaker and PCB board. Is bottom layer glued to base.... just can't loosen?

Learning that the top layer was glued on was the answer I really needed. I used a jeweler's saw to cut a small slot all the way around the base of the top layer and then I poked a series of thin knives into the slot very slowly and carefully all the way around to break the glue loose--it worked! Now I have to mark and cut the wires to remove the top and other layers--mark the wires so you can solder extensions on them when you reassemble--thanks!!!

Hello David, I know this post of yours is 2 years old but hoping you are still seeing it. I'd like to know you managed to cut the glued on sections and exactly where do you cut?

Many thanks,

Bruce Adams

any one have a source for a broken plastic gear for the tree?

I just took mine apart by prying gently around the joint with a screwdriver. It worked without needing to cut it.

rquerio, are you talking about prying around the joint just below the 2nd level, where the 2nd train (that moves) is? Did you use a heat gun or anything to loosen the glue? thank you

I sawed off the topmost level with a Dremel, for the other levels I used a heat gun to soften the glue and then pried them apart. The "pry point" is the small gap between the sections, just above the animated train "disc". Be careful not to warp the train "disc", use the heat sparingly and gently pry all around (I DID warp the bottom disc, and gently reheating it and pressing down on the warped section helped to straighten it back out so that it worked again). This worked on all the levels and probably would also have worked on the top level (that I sawed off). The only thing I saw that held each level to the next were the 4 "pillars" with the long screws, no need to remove anything else. I disassembled the tree to improve the inner lighting, which does a poor job illuminating (from the inside) some of the buildings around the tree. I hot-glued an LED light string on the interior, and very please with the look. I have pix of the disassembly process if anyone would like to see them, let me know.

I have a Bradford exchange tree that turns. It isn't as big as my other ones. The whole tree rotates, which no longer turns. I don't know how to fix the trains on my Bradford exchange ornaments.

For David Speer:

I saw a post by you from 2018 about disassembling an animated Kinkade Christmas tree.

Did you cut and pry around the joint just below the 2nd level, where the 2nd train (that moves) is? Did you use a heat gun or anything to loosen the glue? thank you
