This could be tricky, look on line for a diagram of a typical tension assembly. There aren't that many parts but they can be put on in the wrong order. There is probably a set screw somewhere that has vibrated loose, you need to tighten it after replacing the unit.

Needle clamp tragedu


The needle clamp usually has a screw on the back that is tightened to prevent the needle holder from falling off. The screw on the back should be very loose. Place the holder on the arm (moves when you rotate the wheel by hand) with the screw towards the back and the hand screw on the side. Tighten the screw in the back and it shouldn't come off. Now, place the wire on the side where the hand screw on the inside of the hole along with the arm and place your needle in. Now you can tighten.

Problem with my stiching, i cnt stich, my needle is not brocken.when i try to move hand wheel that time needle also should come up n down but my machine needle nit moving plz help


If the needle doesn't move even when you turn the flywheel ( on the end of the machine), you may have a slipped or broken belt.
If you have a mechanical machine, take off the top and look. If it slipped, you can put it back on using a flat screw driver to put it on.
Otherwise, take it to a reputable shop to have it fixed.
Electronic machines MUST be taken to a shop to make sure the warranty stays in force, and if you take it apart, some repair shops won't touch it.

Removing the covers on a viking 980


I assume you're talking about the main back and front cover. Unless you really are skilled, I'd leave this project to a professional.
I've worked on the Designer I, II type machine and I believe yours has similar construction. You need screwdriver bits with a 6 pointed "star" head. Screws in the cover itself are "H10" size. Screws in the base are "H15" size. The back cover has to be taken off first before you can get at screws for the front cover. Typically there are 5 screws on the back cover that have to be removed and 2 in the bottom of the base. Note that the front and back covers "snap" together and have to be unsnapped after the screws are removed. If you have to take off the front cover (requires removing more screws in the cover and base), be careful with the various wiring harnesses that attach to the main circuit board.

I need to take apart my Brother XR-52 sewing maching to replace the spool pin. I have removed all the screws and cannot figure out how the case comes apart. Thank you.


XR-52 (and probably similar) has 9 screws on the back and bottom that needto be undone - be sure to keep track of which screw goes where becausethey're almost all different. One other screw is under the "nose" piece which holds the front shell to the back - it just needs to be loosened. After you haveremoved the 9 screws and loosened the one I mentioned you start at the bottom and pry apart carefully of course, noticing that the last part comes apart at the top where the three wheels go thru the back shell. In order to take off the front shell you need to remove two more screws, also fairly obvious. Reassembly is opposite order being sure when you get ready to put the back on that you align the three wheels at the top first, then work down to the bottom, replacing all the screws. That's really it - not rocked science. Just be sure not to over-tighten screws going into plastic. Have fun!

The needle on my sewing machine literally just fell off. Not kidding. I'm holding an unbent and otherwise pristine needle. Oh brother SE-270D! I'm not sure how to put the needle back in. I think it just...


when you put the needle in the needle clamp holder the flat side of the needle goes toward the back of the the machine when you tighten the needle clamp screw make sure it's holding the needle,,make sure you can't pull the needle back out of the clamp,, if you can something is wrong with the needle clamp or the screw

Need to change light bulb


some machines it's called the lamp cover door --these machine have a hinge at the back, carefully pull the door toward the back of the machine & it should open to show the bulb
some machines call it the face plate--there is a hidden screw under a plastic plug, gently pry the plug with a screw driver & then take the screw out, & remove the plate & the bulb should be easy to replace,just put the plate back on after changing the bulb & replace the screw & plug
happy sewing

Singer 328k bobbin winder replacement


Follow these instructions, undo the 2 screws on the right hand side plate where the balance wheel is and take the plate off, undo the screw on the chrome stop motion wheel, undo the stop motion and take it off, take off the 2 pronged washer and notice which way it goes on, not a problem if you can't remember, you should be able to pull the balance wheel back so you can get to the screws on the winder, if you can.t and if you have a problem getting the balance wheel all the way then go the very bottom of the machine and you will see 2 big holes and one of the holes will lead you to a big screw and nylon adjuster, slacken the screw and move the nylon adjust so the belt goes slack, you can not take the balance wheel all the way off to get to the screws on the winder, take the old one off and screw the new one on, whilst you have the balance wheel off it would be wise to put some thin oil on the shaft before you put the balance wheel back on, when you have the balance wheel on and the and the belt round the pulley turn the nylon adjuster so the belt is tight and tighten up the screw, put the side plate back on, put the 3 pronged washer back on, put the stop motion wheel back on and just tighten finger tight then tighten the small screw.
