2) Lay the sharpener horizontally on a stable surface. Open the stone sharpening wheel access door. Pull the wheel holder towards you until it snaps in place. NOTE: The wheel holder may be greasy and/or oily.
3) Remove the wheel by unsnapping and rotating the wheel pin clip upwards 90 degrees. Slide the wheel pin out and remove the wheel. If replacing the wheel, discard the old wheel and reserve the wheel pin.
4) Replace the wheel by placing the new wheel or cleaned wheel in the wheel holder. It can be installed in either direction. Insert the wheel pin through the wheel and snap the wheel pin clip in place.

6) Gently raise the wheel holder back to its original position inside the sharpener. Close the door.
