SOURCE: how do i take the case off my brother xr-65 to replace my spool pin and spool cap

I don't have that particular Brother but I have on that is similar.

Start by taking all of the screws out of the back that you can find (they're in deep holes, so look carefully). Then look at the bobbin area and you'll probably find one more. Finally, take the feet off of the bottom of the machine (not the presser foot, the feet that sit on the table), you'll likely find that there is a screw through the middle of the foot that also holds the case in place.

Best of luck

We need specifics of what the symptoms are. There are a lot of issues that will cause a sewing machine to not stitch properly.

I have an Elna Carina SU model no. 65. The spool pins suddenly stopped rotating when I was refilling the spool, although I could hear a motor running quietly when I pressed the foot control.


I'm just wondering if the machine has been checked, cleaned and oiled by a technician recently. These old mechanical machines usually need regular oiling to keep going. Not sure if that is the problem, but sometimes mechanical machines have parts that lock up over time.

Hello i have just obtained a Hasqvarna 3600 and the cotton spool pin has been pusged too far down and i can't get it out. Does anyone know how to pull it out? Please


If it has not been pushed all the way down so part of it is still projecting above the machine, you can cut a piece of plastic drinking straw and place it over the spool pin. This works very well for those extra large spools that are too tall for the spool pin. In some instances, some people simply place the thread spool in a cup or jar on the table to the right and behind the machine. Or, create a spool pin with a wooden dowel attached to a flat surface.

Otherwise, the pin may need to be replaced and repaired by a technician. But, you can get by without a spool pin on the machine.

Which is the stretch stitch on my elna club 500


Here's a copy of your owner's manual:

ELNA 500 ELECTRONIC Manual Page 16

Although it does not show a "stretch" stitch per se, there are several that can work. Machines without any stretch stitch can simply use a zig-zag.

I have a brother xl5012 and would like to change the spool pin..not sure if its broken? the one on top is silver and the spare is plastic..not sure what to do..the manual has no answers.. thank you


On most machines, the spool pin simply screws into a threaded hole. If it was welded on or attached in some other permanent way, changing it may need a service visit. Brother has one of the very best service departments of any company I know. But try to unscrew the old one.. it might be stuck, a drop of penetrating oil, or maybe some pliers, might assist. If it comes out, a new one should screw in easily enough, so long as it matches the size of the hole and the threading.

Singer sewing machine


I'm not sure what you're asking. If you're asking how you can replace the spool pin that is on the machine, you don't need to. Just put your spool in the back of the machine, away from the sewing area on the right, and put it in a coffee cup or Mason jar, and feed the thread from there. Many owners of embroidery machines--which are just sewing machines with an embroidery unit attached--routinely do that--it tends to feed more evenly that way.

Winding bobbin on old elna lotus


I can help you with this, the Elna Lotus has a pretty simple bobbin winding system, the bobbin winder is top right of the machine, drop bobbin with holes to the top onto the spindle. Now Lotus have a dial on the right side which switches between bobbin winding, stitching and locked for transport, turn it to Bobbin symbol. Take the thread from the spool pin at the back across to the metal eyelet at top front (it sits inside the accessory tray when transporting so you may need to pop open the tray lid and flip this eyelet out)
24421001-h4211ohbpts0t3j0sbmab0vm-2-0.jpg Now take thread across and through a hole on top of the bobbin and holding the tail, put your foot onto the foot control to get a couple of winds onto the bobbin to hold the thread. Now place your finger or the handle of a pair of scissors onto the top of the thread spool to apply tension so that the thread winds evenly and slowly wind the bobbin until about 3/4 full, making sure it winds evenly. Tension onto the spool is the key here, Lotus doesn't have a tension device to control the thread tension as it winds so you need to do this, critical to getting a good stitch out of these lovely machines.

Hope this helps you out.
