Question about Brother XL-6562 Mechanical Sewing Machine
The reverse sewing lever (page 24 of the manual) is loose and does not work. I feel that the plastic lever has broken and I would like to replace it. I tried to take the plastic cover off of the XL-6562 machine to get a better look at the problem but could not take the cover off without forcing it (and possibly breaking the plastic cover). Also, the connecting plug on the XL-6562 is loose and I have to be careful when plugging the machine in to the power cord of the machine. When lifting the machine and turning it, I hear loose noises like a borken piece of plastic or a loose metal screw falling around inside the machine. I think that if I could get the plastic cover off of the machine, I would be able to see what the problems are with the machine. I have taken all of the metal screws off of the plastic casing, but still the plastic cover will not come off. Can you help me figure out how to get the plastic cover off of the machine? Thanks, MB
My wife and I just had this same problem (or at least getting the cover off) and have a possible solution. Safety first, unplug your machine from the wall. Next remove all the screws, three by handle, three on the bottom, one on the rear of the sleeve arm, one on the light bulb cover and one inside the lightbulb cover that goes sideways into the frame. I believe that's all of them but look for any that hold plastic-to-plastic or plastic-to-metal. Take note not to change the stich settings or else you'll have to find and set the number wheel and the adjuster to match, not fun. The way we did it was starting from the top, pry the case apart slightly and with a flat screwdriver gently lift the case over the three adjusting wheels so they clear. We then, with difficulty, pried the case the rest of the way open, with a really loud pop! A better way might have been to start pring from the bottom, but it worked. Reassembly was just the reverse, just fit the top first and put all those screws back in.
Hope this helps.
