Question about Sewing Machines
Upper blade broke when I started to sew after machine was unused for only a few months. I had used it regularly for about 3-4 years then stored a few months. Before that it had been stored for probably nearly a decade and worked like a charm right away. repair person said that the lower blade was not in position by maybe 1/8 inch, and it could not be fixed. seems odd to me, would love to get it back to working again, don't like to throw things out. any fix ideas or manual available? thanks!!

Take a few stitches and look for where the thread is hanging as the loop slides over the bobbin case. If there is a rough spot causing it to hang, smooth it out with very fine steel wool make certain to remove all remains of the steel wool when you are finished. If the thread is catching between the bobbin case and some other surface, the clearance between the surfaces needs to be set and you should take it to a qualified repairman.

When you say top thread nesting, I supose you mean that the thread is messed up at the top of the needle plate.
1st, either your bobbin thread is completely loose, or the bobbin thread is not held under the bobbin case spring,
or lint has been accumulated under the bobbin case spring.
2nd, the top thread is very tight,

Your problem is probably the stitch length adjustment cam (located on the left side of the machine) To fix this problem you will need to remove the small plastic cap (with red arrow) covering the screw securing the cam. It is usually also necessary to remove the connecting rod/sleeve that the cam rides in. Once both of these parts have been removed, you will need to carefully separate them and resurface the inside of the sleeve. This can be done with a very fine (500grit or higher) emery paper. Once the cam fits inside the sleeve without binding, reassemble using sewing machine oil or lithium grease and adjust feed dog timing.
