Widelux F7 slow setting 1/15 too slow

I recently got a F7 in very nice condition which was little used and never serviced according to the seller who was the first owner.

Remarkably the 125 and 250 speeds run very smooth. The 1/15 also runs fairly smooth but is about 60% slower then my F8. It s almost as if it is a 1/10 speed.

It is away for a CLA now but I think cleaning wil not make it run so much faster that it will run as fast as the 1/15 of my F8.

Anybody experience something like this too? Was there ever a F7 running at 1/10?

My F7 came back from the CLA and its 1/15 speed runs like it should again! Incredible the difference that this cla makes!

CLA should make a difference. You may want to call the shop to make sure they check the speeds before shipping back to you. I've never had a problem with my F7, but it will go off soon for general cleaning and new seals.
