I have the same problem and came across this solution http://www.birdforum.net/archive/index.php/t-33708.html, basically tapping and replacing the threads with a stronger steel insert. Haven't tried it myself yet but plan to.

I have juki 1541industrial machine . It started sewing upside down . Instead of nice stiching on top show side it on bottom. Any ideas


This is caused by the tension between the bobbin and needle threads being out of balance. If the knots between the stitches are on the bottom side, then you need to tighten your needle thread tension a little at a time until the knot is in middle of fabric. The reverse of this is if the knots are on the top, then either your bobbin tension is too loose or your needle thread tension is too tight. If this occurs, then loosen your needle thread a little at a time to see if knot goes down in middle of fabric. If it does not, then you need to increase the tension on your bobbin thread. This done by taking bobbin case out and tighten the small screw located in the middle of the spring on the side of the case. You only need a slight, steady pull on the bobbin thread - the more you put on the bobbin, the more you are going to have to put on the needle thread.

Wand will not launch when seat is activated


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

f the toilet bowl overflows, use a plunger or auger to eliminate clogs. If the toilet does not flush, tighten or replace the defective handle , adjust or replace the lift chain , or replace the flush mechanism . Jiggling the handle forces the lift chain or rod to re-seat the flush mechanism, telling you that something is awry.

If the bowl drains sluggishly, remove the clog with a plunger or auger, or raise the water level in the tank .

If water runs continuously through the toilet, lower the water level in the tank , adjust or replace a lift chain or wire , repair or replace a worn flush valve , clean or replace the valve seat assembly .

If water appears under the tank, tighten the tank hold-down bolts , lower the water level in the tank, replace the float valve , replace a malfunctioning ball or tighten nuts on the water supply line, replace leaking supply line . As a last resort, re-seat the toilet .

If the seat is cracked or unsightly, replace it .

If the bowl or tank is cracked or otherwise unacceptable, replace the entire toilet .

How to bypass ignitino on gsx650f


Instructions
    • 1 Measure the chain's tension with a ruler. Move the center point of the bottom half of the drive chain with your hand. Take a measurement of the chain's movement as you push the chain up and down as far as it will go. The chain should have a free range of movement between 0.8 to 1.2 inches. If the chain's free range is greater than 1.2 inches, you need to tighten the chain. Alternatively, loosen the chain if it has less than 0.8 inches of free movement.
    • 2 Loosen the large nut on the left side of the rear axle with a 32 mm socket and a socket wrench. If more leverage is needed to loosen the nut, use a long-handled breaker bar.
    • 3 Loosen the chain adjuster blocks on both side of the rear swing arm with a pair of 10 mm wrenches. Hold the blocks' adjustment bolt's head steady with one wrench and loosen the bolt's lock nut with the other wrench.
    • 4 Turn both adjustment bolts an equal number of turns with a 10 mm wrench to adjust the chain's tension. Turn the adjustment bolts clockwise to loosen the chain, or counterclockwise to tighten the chain. Check that the edge of both chain adjuster blocks are evenly aligned with the adjustment marks imprinted on the swing arm.
    • 5 Check the chain's range of free movement again. Make adjustments as needed until the chain has a free range of movement between 0.8 and 1.2 inches.
    • 6 Hold the adjustment bolts steady with a 10 mm wrench and tighten their lock nuts against the chain adjuster blocks with a second 10 mm wrench. Tighten the axle nut to 72.5 foot-pounds with a 32 mm socket and a torque wrench. Check the chain's tension again.

How to adjust a 9460897 mtd snow blower auger clutch cable.


On the handle end (usually) of the cable is a curved metal connector. Attached to the connector is a threaded rod with a nut. Attach a pair of pliers to the threaded cylinder that the threaded rod goes into. Loosen the nut. Turn the threaded cylinder into the threaded rod to tighten or out to loosen. When you have the correct adjustment, tighten the nut back down onto the cylinder. To be correctly adjusted, pull the cover off the auger belt and push down on the handle. The spring attached to the cable at the pulley end should stretch out when the handle is fully depressed. Spring tension keeps the belt tight. iaff801.jpg

My bobbin thread is bunching up underneath. I have taken the bobbin out and the bobbin assembly out but it still is doing it.


Gayle,

In a sewing maching, for the thread not to bunch up, there are two thread tension tighteners. One each for the bottom and the top threads. The top thread tensioner is a nut that tightens or loosens the thread tension. The thread passes under this nut. While for the bottom thread it is two screws on the casing for the bobbin. These two screws hold a small strip of metal to the casing and the thread passes under this strip.

To be able to get proper tension on both the threads you have to strike a balance on both the top and the bottom threads. If the difference is not much then you can do with varying only one of them, usually the top one for ease of functioning.

Since you say that the thread is bunching uo on the bobbin side, ie, the bottom, means that the top thread is too tight and must be loosened. You cant do it in the first go. It may take you a few attempts to get it correct, so do not loose heart if it is taking time.

All the best.

How do you tighten the tension for the thread?


Top tension on most machine is adjusted by turning a tension knob in front of two discs this holds the thread tight. bottom tension is uasually adjusted by turning a very small screw on the bobbin case were the thread comes out from under.

Persistently loose handle on a 20+yr old 9' fry pan


What has happened is the threaded hole the screw goes into had 'stripped out'. The best option is to fill the threaded hole with epoxy, and put the screw back in, tightening it well and letting the epoxy cure. The only alternative is to thread the hole to a larger size, and use a larger screw.

Chainsaw chain will not tighten on the guide bar


The two nuts on the bolts for the chain bar, need to be loosened.

Then the tension screw is tightened by turning it Clockwise. (To the Right)

If the chain doesn't tighten,

1.Insure that the nuts are loose enough, so that the chain bar may slide.

2.Insure that the tension adjusting screw does not have stripped threads, nor the threaded part of the case it screws through.

Why does the bolt on the belt tensioner turn instead of the hole tensioner move? I am replacing the alternator


Hello! It's because the bolt is also the shaft that the tensioner rides on - therefore it needs to spin freely on the bolt. Hope that makes sense, and helps!
