Adjust needle threader


These needle threaders are a pain. I gave up on mine after the third time I had it fixed.Easier to thread by hand or a little needle threader.
As for having to have the timing readjusted twice, either the machine is faulty or the techs don't know their job!

How do I Fix a Zipper Foot to my Janome sewing Machine


It should attach the same way any other presser foot attaches. If it is the square type with small holes or notches on each side, you move the needle to line up with one of those holes. If the needle does not have a separate side to side adjustment, usually you can move it using the width adjustment on the machine, as if you were going to stitch zig zag. If it is the long narrow kind, it will also have notches or holes on each side that you line up the needle with. Make sure the needle will go up/down without hitting the foot at all.

I have a brother SE-400 the metal ring that catches the top thread under the bobbing case (the bobbin housing?) hits my needle with every stitch, bending and breaking needles. The timing has been...


The metal ring sounds like the hook you are talking about.
Timing is only one of the issues you must also adjust the needle to hook clearance and needle bar height. The tip of the hook must pass above the eye of the needle in the scarf on the back of the needle without touching the needle. Who adjusted the timing and what did they do?

How to check timing on pe180d embroidery machine


In case of adjusting sewing machine timing, there are twomain parts that you should follow.To adjust the hook needle timing on the rotary hook, first,remove the bobbin, bobbin carrier, and covers so you can see the movement ofthe hook. This may involve removing the needle plate for top loadingassemblies, or removing the hook cap from the front of the machine. Itoften requires the removal of the lower covers to reach the componentparts. Adjust as needed when doing sewing machine repair.Set the machine to a straight stitch at the defaultposition. Different models have different default positions including themost common far left and center positions. If no problems are perceivedin needle bar positioning, the default position will suffice. If thereare needle bar position issues, these need to be adjusted prior to adjustingthe timing. Follow proper sewing machine repair procedures.Rotate the hand wheel toward youuntil you see the needle reach its lowest position and begin its rise. Now lookfor the point of the hook as you continue rotating the hand wheel. Thepoint of the hook should strike inside the needle scarf above the needleby about 0.5mm. Sewing machine repair is vital for smooth operations.Check to see if the hook fails topick up the thread. Double check the needle bar positioning including thehook needle spacing. If these are appropriate and the point of the needlestill fails to pick up the loop thread, proceed to adjust the timing of thehook. Maintain regular sewing machine repair. Look for the lower drivemechanism. It may be a lower shaft with gears on either end. If this isthe case, look to the right end of the shaft for a gear with adjusting setscrews. Loosen and manually adjust the position of the hook. Tightly hold thehand wheel while turning the drive shaft to set the proper position. Retighten adjusting screws. Some models have timing beltsthat control the timing of the sewing machine. Look for a belt connectedon each with to drive gears. Look for work cogs on the belt. Inmost cases, you can reset the timing belt, without replacing it. If,however, the belt requires replacement you will need to do so. Loosen the drive mechanism on the right side to free the movement of the belt.Manually adjust the position of the hook to the needle and re-tighten set screws. This knowledge is vital for effective sewing machine repair.Once the timing has been reset,conduct thorough test sewing on the sewing machine to make sure everything isworking properly.Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

Timing the needle


That isn't the timing. If the hook is hitting the needle the hook is too far left - or close to the needle. It's adjustable by loosening the set screw at the base of the hook and by gently tapping the hook away from the needle. You want the hook to be close enough to the needle to pick up the thread loop that's formed just as the needle bar is rising.

Timing problem


You might have to look at loosening the set screws for the gear on the lower shaft that drives the hook driver gear . Loosen the screws, slide the gears apart, then adjust the hook so it is entering the scarf of the needle on the upstroke. Slide the gears togeather so they mesh again and it should be back in time. There are other factors though such as needle height adjustment which is done with the needle bar and hook and needle clearance (the distance between the needle and hook) which should be about .030. I'm a Bernina tech but many machines work the same principle. Good luck.
