How do I take my DAB Euroinox water pump apart to change the impellor?

I have removed the 4 "allen key" bolts but the case will not come off. Is there something else to be removed first?

I have a Kenmore sewing machine, model 158.16800 and I need to disassemble it. I've removed the screws on the bottom and it still won't come apart. The case is metal.

A parts diagram may be helpful:


I suspect there may be some other bolts from the top that fasten to the base.

However, given that your machine may have seized (is there brown gunk inside the machine?), you may be able to address the issue without taking the entire machine apart.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

My needle is stuck in the bobbing case of my sewing machine, it will bend and break if i force it up.

From the pictures I've seen, it looks like you should be able to move the two black levers on either side of the bobbin case and remove the shuttle. With the shuttle out of the way, the bobbin case should be released from the needle. (I've had to do this with my own machines at times.)

If the needle is hanging up in the bobbin, it is likely that the machine is out of time (the needle is not penetrating the bobbin area at the correct time). (Verify that you are using the right needles for your machine--some needles are longer and could cause it to hang up in the machine. And then check to make sure you are installing the needle with the flat side facing the correct direction.) You could try to take it for service, however, the cost may not be justifiable vs purchasing a new machine. Perhaps talking to some sewing repair shops will give you an idea of the cost to repair.

Bobbin case knocking on stylist 7258

Sounds like the timing is off, bribean01. I just fixed mine. It wasn't hard, but taking the machine apart, finding the right screws to loosen, set the timing and figure out how to put it all back together again was not easy. It's been days of work. I took it apart three times. I have an extra screw left over (you know that's not good). Singer did not make this easy to fix. There is a complicated metal casing around the parts you would be attempting to reach from one angle while needing to have a grip from another. Several sets of eyes would be helpful, too-if only!. It will require english and metric allen wrenches several screwdrivers pivotable lighting...My point is- you can do it, but in retrospect, it probably would have been better to spend $125 to let someone else to do it- someone who can then be blamed. When my machine jammed I also broke a tiny piece off the rim of the bobbin case. I was hoping it wouldn't matter, but it catches the thread, so...i'll order the $15 part and use the time to consider how badly I need to take apart the machine again to find the hole that is missing a screw. Good luck Gals!

How do I remove needles on a Viking Huskylock 905?

Use the allen key or screwdriver that came with a the accessory kit. The screws are on the front of the needle bar and are hard to see. Push them up all the way when you change them.

Needle clamp screw broke off and the end part of the screw is still lodged inside the needle bar. How can I get it out? Would appreciate any help!!

Wow! That's sure a tricky situation! Just had a look at my needle clamp screw set-up through a magnifying glass. It seems to me that there is a very small Allen screw just above the needle clamp screw place. Could you use a small Allen key and undo this, hopefully releasing the whole needle clamp assembly. The cheap kits sold in chain stores for repairing glasses may well contain a tiny Allen key. Your next challenge will be to locate a new needle clamp assembly, but a Husqvarna dealer should be able to help you out there. There is an excellent online place for buying spares but I am very sorry I can't remember its name. Try Google? You could try taking it to a hardware store and seeing if someone there can help you with a suggestion on how to remove the screw shank.

How to adjust lower tension on pfaff hobby 370

On the bobbin case is a screw. Mark the case with a tiny dab of nail polish and the edge of the screw. This will tell you where you began.

Turn the screw: right to tighten and left to loosen.

This is an adjustment that is usually not needed unless you are changing the weight of the thread being used on the bobbin.

Is there a secret to getting the plastic cover to separate to adjust the belt for the Singer 7462?

These split cases are a right pain to put it mildly..........

Before we go further, you have got the handwheel in the sewing position, not for bobbin winding, haven't you ?!?!

OK, sorry, but it's like "turn the thing on at the wall guys"....often simple things are overlooked.

So here goes..

Although you may think you have undone all the screws, there are usually several that merely clamp a small lug, so a half turn to looses is all you need, not to undo completely, as they are not passing through a hole, merely a U shaped retaining lug attached to the casing.

They may be near the bobbin case/hook race area at the back of the machine, but undone from inside at the front.......around near the needle arm is another favourite spot to clamp front and rear sections.........some of these machines from various manufacturers have more than 12 retaining screws !!!!

There is also a tricky one that is a 2mm hex bolt (Allen Key) that is accessed through the air vent flutes under the handwheel near the power inlet !!

I hate them all, and I have service manuals (for Janome at least) to tell you where to look !!

Different makes and models have differing places to by committee to save manufacturing costs and keep technician stress at fever pitch.

The other loathesome thing, is to do with the small clips moulded to either side of the joint .....they seem designed to push together once only, in the factory before boxing and distribution........they are NOT friendly if anyone needs open it again to service the machine some time later and are easily broken off.

....a couple of small screwdrivers to lever and wedge an increasing section apart can work, but do not force anything that does not want to come easily, you may not have undone all those screws the first time............

My absolute best advice for these is to take it to a technician who has the service manual for your model or you will almost certainly have broken clips and an ill fitting case, plus the ensuing anguish and fury of the person whose machine you didn't fix.

By all means have a play at it, but if there is any danger of frustration and the temptation to force something, get up and put the kettle on immediately, then call for backup.
