Question about Sewing Machines
Serger is 30 years old, hadn't been used since 1991. needed oil so I did that. when I used it last and put it away in it's box, it was working. started to sew today and the wheel wouldn't go any further than half way around. wheel goes backward further than forward. seems like something is stopping the rotation but took bottom of machine off to see and can't see any obstruction. was full of lint though and needed oil. I cleaned and oiled but the same thing occurred

Did you do a thorough oiing "inside" the machine--like take the bottom or back off, hand rotate the handwheel and apply a drop of "fresh, good quality serger oil" every place where metal rubs against metal?

SOURCE: cooker won't stay on
Your rice cooker has a defect from the time you bought it, you should have taken it back while the warranty was still in effect,but if the warranty is still in effect take it back to the supplier.or have a tech look at it, the problem is in the power supply circuit.good luck.

SOURCE: Pfaff serger stuck
your needle bar has been pushed up and is out of adjustment. You need to take off the side cover, there should be a screw on the back of your machine holding it on. Remove this screw, and remove the cover.You may have to remove the light assembly to reach the screw on the needle bar. Once you can see the needle bar, rotate the handwheel until you can see the screw on the needle bar. Loosen this screw SLIGHTLY until you can turn the needle bar. Hold and rotate the needle bar back and forth as you push down slightly. This will lower the bar.Lower it about 1/4 inch. Adjust the needles by turning the bar so that they are straight across. Tighten the needle bar screw so that the bar doesn't move. Turn the handwheel to see if the threads will be picked up. If not, adjust until they are. Tighten the needle bar screw tightly,reinstall the side cover ,and tighten the screw. Change your needles.Rethead and sew.

The clutch has fallen off the shaft. Remove the very small screw in the clutch release screw to remove the clutch release. Place the clutch(round thing with ears on it) back on the shaft with the center ears pointing towards the outside. Put the clutch release screw back on. Tighten it to make sure it works
properly. Put the small screw back in the clutch release screw and test it again. If it will not tighten or release properly, remove the clutch ,rotate it180 degrees and try it again.This should solve your problem.

SOURCE: Oiling my Janome Gem Gold
Janome Gem are self lubricating. Silicon is embedded in the gears and releases as it runs. If the machine is put away and not run every so often it will lock up. The hand wheel may have thread caught up around it. The Gems aren't assembled to be dissembled except to change the light bulb.
