Refer to your gutter machine manual before making any adjustments to your machine.

How to Adjust the Green Station to Fix Gutter Running “Into the House”
If the gutter is running “into the house,” adjust the green station of the gutter machine swing shaft assembly. Follow the steps demonstrated in this video or find details in this article on four common gutter machine problems and how to fix them:
To fix gutters going into the house, you’ll need to adjust the swing shaft assembly, color-coded green. This assembly applies pressure to the head of the gutter and is the most common adjustment used to straighten the gutter.
To straighten your gutter:
- Loosen the two “J” bolts on top of the gutter box assembly enough so that the swing shaft assembly can slide.
- Turn the adjustment bolt “K” to move the swing shaft assembly.
- To fix gutters going into the house, turn bolt “K” COUNTERCLOCKWISE a quarter of a turn at a time.
- After making an adjustment, run an 8′ long piece of gutter to check its straightness.
- If needed, adjust further by repeating the steps above, and be sure to check the gutter lip before completing any adjustments.
- While holding the swing shaft adjustment assembly so bolt “K” is against the box assembly, retighten bolts “J.”
