Question about Sewing Machines
Hi, my Athena just dropped several dried, hardened pieces of a rubber washer onto my hand. They fell out of the opening where the work light is. Any way I can get into the machine to replace this washer myself? This may explain the noise it is making. Thanks.
This is a shaft washer designed to cushion the left right movement of the main shaft Lift the right side of the black top and slide it to the right and it will come off.
If you look closeley you will see a collar on the main shaft with 2 set screws ,this washer goes between the collar and the machine side . We use a delrin washer and cut out app 30degrees of this washer which will allow you to snap it over the shaft ,I hope this helps these were great machines
