    Call Garrett at 1 (800) 527-4011 Hours of Operation: 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM M-F CST
    Explain what's wrong with it and they will probably tell you to take it off the rod and just send in the control box and the coil.
    Click on the link below for the return repair form.
    Here is the address to send it to:
    Garrett Metal Detectors
    1881 W. State St.
    Garland, TX 75042

    If you can't print out the form I believe you can just send it in with a piece of paper with all the info on it.
    I use the U.S. Post Office Flat Rate Medium box. It costs around $11 to send anything that will fit in the box no matter what the weight. Garrett usually pays the return shipping.
    I found it is way cheaper than UPS and Fed EX. and it gets there in 3 days from the east coast. Their turn around is usually about 10 working days.

    Good luck and happy hunting.

    One must be smarter than the equipment they are working with!

    Thanks, Ace, but I tried that several years back. I have dealt with Garrett often over the years, have an AT Pro and an Infinium now, but they say they no longer have parts to repair the early machines. My friend has one a few years newer, still 70s, and he tried last year and Garrett told him the same thing, they couldn't do it. Garrett, in my opinion, has the best customer service of any current manufacturer, but I guess one can't expect any company to stock parts and maintain personnel who'd be familiar with forty year old equipment. This is why I have turned to the forums, thinking there must be someone out there still working on these old detectors.

    If the Garrett MH BFO is still a candidate for repair, I can repair for $40 plus shipping. Let me know.
