My tension knob keeps popping off. How do I fix that?

Hopefully, this procedure will correct that problem.
It is very important to check whether the position of the tension mechanism is correct.
-Set the presser bar lever in its intermediate (embroidery) position.
-Check that the disc opening rod "B" in the below figure is as close as possible to the disc opening lever "N" without actually touching.

-Ensure that the thread take-up spring can move freely without rubbing against the machine arm. Distance "a" in the below figure should be about 1/16" (1.5mm)

If an adjustment is needed, loosen screw 048050 GEB and move the entire tension mechanism along its axis (do not rotate it) then tighten screw 048050 GEB firmly.
pics with the above here.....
hope this helps.
Happy sewing!

How to disassemble

The entire tension assembly will come out intact. There should be a screw (usually about 8-9 oclock) that holds the unit in place. Loosen it and pull assembly out. There will be another screw that holds the big round part (that was back in the machine before removing). Loosen and slide off, then remove and replace spring. Make sure when you install that its not in too far that it keeps your tension discs open all the time or you won't be able to adjust the tensions.

Nelco sewing machine 234F - stitch length knob wont turn

My Nelco Sierra 234F stitch length dial was stuck. Turns out it's pretty easy to repair if you are handy with tools.

Remove top of the machine. Remove set screw holding stitch length mechanism to body about half-way down inside. I loosened the screw and used a magnet to retrieve the screw and washer. Gently pull mechanism out the front, jiggle a bit to disengage rear cylinder from lever and pin inside body. When out remove two screws holding rear cylinder to mechanism and remove, note that the opening in the cylinder should be up when the dial is set to "button hole."

Remove the small snap ring holding the reverse button push rod and spring and pull it out. Remove snap ring holding outer cylinder onto inner cylinder...this probably requires a snap-ring removal tool.

Work the outer cylinder free from the inner cylinder by using lubricant (maybe let it sit over night), twisting with a wrench, whatever it takes. The problem is that the oil/grease between the two cylinders has dried out and become sticky.

Once the outer cylinder is off clean everything and verify the cylinders turn freely when assembled. Lightly file the cylinders smooth if you gouged them when taking them apart. Lubricate with oil or light grease, reassemble and reinstall the snap ring. Reinstall reverse button push rod, spring and small snap ring. Reinstall rear cylinder with the two screws, note orientation of opening in rear cylinder.

Installation is a bit tricky, you have to turn and wiggle the mechanism to get the pin on the lever to enter the side opening of the rear cylinder. Lifting the lever and pin mechanism from the top can help by moving the pin rearwards. It took me a few tries.

Once it's in orient the set screw hole in the outer cylinder under the set screw opening in the body and reinstall the set screw and washer (I used a magnet to lower the pair into the screw hole).

Reinstall cover and you are good to go. If you drop the set screw or washer remove the bottom and retrieve them, or fish them out with a magnet if you can see them.

How to unassemble and clean Janome sewing machine foot controller model 21371?

There are 4 screws on the bottom, 2 are under a rubber pad that can just as well be discarded. Be careful opening the 2 halves of the case, since the assembly is spring loaded. Note carefully the position of the wire bail as you open.
Your control is failing because the two resistive strips are dirty. Blow all the lint out the the case, and swab the two resistor strips with alcohol. Move the wiper arm so you can reach both ends of the strips.
To re-assemble, lay the bottom half on the table and place the plunger and wire bail in position. Then set the large ends of the springs over the round plastic projections in the plunger. Take the top half of the case (with all electrical parts) and engage the bottom end (away from the springs). Before pushing the top half closed, be sure that the small ends of the two springs fit around two screw heads.

The presser foot lifter of my Singer 9432 has disconnected

Had the same problem.
Open the cover where the light bulb is.

Follow the presser foot rod up into the machine.

You will find a metal keeper with a set screw facing the now open end of the machine.

That set screw has most likely come loose.

Since the presser foot is spring loaded to the down position leave the presser foot raising lever in the down position.

With your flat bladed screwdriver, gently push the metal keeper to it's lowest position. If it does not go easy, loosen the metal keeper set screw a bit. Lefty loosey.

Tighten the set screw on the metal keeper. Righty tighty.

How to change the needle holder on Bernina 160

1.) Remove the screw that holds the needle in. Remove needle.

2.) Gentle pry the thread guide clip off of the needle holder. There is a guide and a small flat spring, do not loose those.

3.) Remove the needle height pin. These pins are available in several different sizes and need to be set correctly.

4.) Remove the holder assembly.

5.) Reverse procedure to assemble with the new needle holder.

This really should be done by a Bernina dealer that has the proper parts.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Singer Featherweight tension assembly

Putting this back together is a thirty second job if you have done it a hundred times. If you have never done it but have mechanical aptitude, it may be a challenge.

Whatever you do, don't bend the check spring out of shape!

Below is a link to the Singer site with the schematic for reassembly. When placing the check spring back in place, place it in about the 6 o'clock position with no tension so that it has a fair amount of check before pulling it up in place..

When setting the tension, at a setting of "1" the tension disks should just be slightly compressing the beehive spring. "0" is almost no tension at all. Normal sewing is 5.

Get all of the parts together and push in the cup with the numbers while screwing on the knurled nut taking care to get the pin in one of the holes.
