Maintenance & Repair Help

       
     
.........................      
     

Welcome to the maintenance and repair section of our site! We will be posting information right out of the owner's manual for many different models. The pages will show you the proper way to clean, oil, adjust the belt tension and in some cases set the timing on the machine. To get your model posted here, send us a request! We will also have a generic section that will apply to most machines. Which will include basic hook timing, stitch formation, trouble shooting, etc... We understand that most of the electronic machines of today will need a trained mechanic for some repairs. But in most cases the older, all mechanical machines, can be fixed by you! In fact a majority of repairs is only a simple problem of the needle or thread or both.
