The fly wheel has a 'freewheel' mechanism similar to the rear wheel on a bicycle. It needs cleaning and regreasing with light grease to free it up and make it work properly. The job is not difficult but needs some diy knowledge. Before trying to remove the fly wheel some slack will need to be created on the 'bungee' return cord and anchored securely. You will also require circlip pliers to remove the shaft. The freewheel mechanism is a set of needle bearings that move forward in their recess to allow the wheel to rotate and move back and lock when the wheel rotates in the opposite direction. These need to be free moving and old grease thickens and becomes sticky. Clean with something like GT 85 and regrease with a light grease.

How do I set bobbin tension?


Generally bobbin tension is the last thing to try to adjust on your machine. Most sewists adjust the bobbin tension ONLY if they are using very lightweight or very heavyweight thread in the bobbin. Most sewists will advise to make all possible adjustments to the top tension before tackling the bobbin tension to resolve issues.

Try searching YouTube videos or this may be helpful:

Cable breaks every 10 -15 times I row. Could I buy another recommended cable with instructions for fitting correctly?


Is it the bungee that breaks? If so, you can absolutely replace that if you call the manufacturer.
You will know that the bungee is breaking if you pull on the cord and receive no resistance, or if the cable does not reel itself in.
If it is the actual cable connecting to your handle, there is much larger issue with your machine, and a new cable is not going to help. You should look into repairing the whole system.

Cord seems to be slipping off the flywheel; I pull and the cord goes slack, spools out much more than is needed, and when it retracts (basically from my stopping the pull and slowly letting it reel itself...


You have a bungee problem, your bungees broke. You can easily order new bungees from your manufacturer. They are also easy to replace once you take off the side of the fan.
