At Norm's Rotor Service, service is who we are. Our technicians have experience in repairing almost all American-made rotors, even those no longer in production, and our emphasis on quality has made NRS one of the best-known service facilities in the country.  

Email us with the following information...

bulletwhat is your rotor doing or not doing? symptoms please!
bulletwhat are the numbers stamped in the bottom of your rotor?
bulletwhat is the model and series printed on the label located on the back or bottom of your control?
bulletwhat do you plan to turn with it? make and model antenna?
bullethow do you plan to mount the rotor?  in a tower on a rotor plate or using a mast adapter?
bulletwhat is the length of the rotor control cable and how old is it?

We will respond with a RETURN AUTHORIZATION.  You can then send us your rotor and/or control box and we repair/rebuild it using original manufacturer's parts (Norm bought them all!). Each rotor and control box  is tested on the appropiate original CDR, CDE, Telex, Hygain or Alliance factory test fixtures (Norm owns them too!) to ensure that the rotor and control box you get back are like "factory new." 

We sometimes get phone calls from customers who ask, "Why did you send me back a new rotor, instead of sending back my own?"  Our answer is, "That is your own rotor. . .  it just looks and works like new."
