SOURCE: necchi sewing machine

i repair a lot of sewing machines as a hobby .. the necchi is one of the better ones .. they are easy to use and work well .. i almost always dontate the repaired machines to places like "womens shelter" .. "home for troubled girls" or just give them to someone that has nothing or cant afford new machines ... it sometimes makes a difference in their life if someone helps them get started .. modern machines vary from really cheap junkers that somehow work to really expensive machines that do everything but are completely out of reach for many.. the old necchis are better than many new machines but no one knows that .. so typically they sell for only $20 to $50 ... but if you donate a working machine to someone it can help, then its worth it weight in gold ..

SOURCE: My wife received a Necchi Nova machine as a gift

It is quite common for some sparks to be seen in the armature but id it is excessive you may need to replace the carbon brushes if you can get them

Testimonial: "I was wondering if that was the problem in that the brushes might be wore out. I had one of the screws out and found only a spring."

SOURCE: Just found a green Necchi

Try http://www.sewingstyle.com/Necchi-Sewing-Needle-Plates.html - the BU Nova is a 50's era machine so you may have to hunt down a second hand spare part or see if one of the other model plates will fit this model.

Also there are 3 or 4 Necchi Italian machine owner groups on Yahoo, I'd suggest that you join the one called Necchisewingmachineclub and then check out any posts on spare parts and see what you can glean there. Just read the group rules as often they like members to "share" information and don't like newbies to drop in and post a question then disappear. Or ask the same question on several groups (crossposting).

I know that many Super Nova owners love their machines and highly regard them.

Good luck tracking down the part for yours.

SOURCE: looking for the reverse button

There is no reverse button, it is a lever.The stitch length lever also reverses the feed dogs - when down, it runs forward - at zero, it does not feed at all and when moved up, it reverses the machine. Set your stitch length by loosening the thumbscrew on the vertically moving lever and sliding the plate into position while moving the lever up to the desired mark. Tighten the screw and move the lever down to sew - to reverse just move the lever up until it hits the stop to sew the same stitch length in reverse.

We have a very old Necchi Model BU Mira, that is integrated into a sewing table. It has a knee pressure speed control. There is no power cord, so I'm trying to figure out where to connect one. It appears...


The power wire (from the wall) connects to a block just under the motor where the on/off switch is. On my machine there is a brown block with the words Necchi italy on it. I unscrew two screw and there is a track were the power cord lays and leads bite in to the cord as the screws are retightened..... The blue wires from the transformer are on the "sewing machine side" of the transformer and power from the wall should not be attached there.
