Question about Necchi Sewing Machines
The knob does not hold the needle center anymore, I can use it still while the needle is on the left. I live in Oklahoma, travel to surrounding states Arkansas and texas is probable. I need a repair job.
This is a generic answer as I don't know the model of your machine but usually the cause is because it needs cleaning and oiling. Usually its because parts have become gummed up from old oil etc. Start off with a hair dryer and blow some heat behind the knob and the parts attached to it. This will soften up the old stuff. You should then use sewing machine oil (or a penetrating oil, WD-40 is not good though, it dries and hardens fast) on any metal parts that move. Work the mechanism slowly little by little until it frees up.
Hope this helps.
