You can try Ray Brodersen at Brodersen Instrument Co, they are in Mars
and do most of our repairs. Ray does an excellent job at a good price.
It sounds like the bearings in your fan or maybe the compressor.

Subject: [Histonet] cryostat repair

Our cryostat (CM3050S) is making a terrible noise when the fan stops
running, yet I don't want to call Leica (the manufacturer) because they
charge more money than anyone could ever afford.  How would I go about
finding someone who could repair a cryostat in Pittsburgh? I don't think
it's the refrigeration that's broken, it sounds like something
Any suggestions?
Has anyone ever tried to open the back of one to see if it's fixable?
I'm no
mechanic, but I think I can spot a worn belt or loose screw.  I'm just
sure I want to open it up myself.


It has become almost a cliche to remark that nobody boasts of ignorance
literature, but it is socially acceptable to boast ignorance of science
proudly claim incompetence in mathematics.
