Question about Sewing Machines
When bobbin case is out, I see that the inner part of where it normally snaps in, spins around, and blocks the spot where the needle is to come
cleanly down and back up with the thread from the bobbin. Is this a timing problem? Can I fix this myself? I have a Pfaff 332 sewing machine.
Thank you for any help you can give me. Anna
There are two parts to the sew hook on that machine. The outer part has the hook point that grabs the thread off the needle. Then there is an inner part which has a post in the center of it that the bobbin case fits on to. The inner part should be held in place with an arm that has a bump on it. It keeps the inner part from spinning around. Sometimes this arm slips loose and a notch in the inner part of the hook assembly slips out from under the knob on the arm. If this is what is happening, you need to loosen the screw holding the arm in place and reposition the notch of the inner part of the hook back under the bump on the arm. There needs to be clearance between the notch and the bump for the thread to pass between the two. And the bump should be in line with the needle when it is in its lowest position.
If this doesn't solve the problem you need to take the machine in for repair.
