Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I put a metal bowl in the microwave. It was large enough to touch the door and when I turned on the microwave, it sparked, of course, and burned a black spot on the door. It did not go all the way through. Is it safe to use it or do I need to atone for my stupidity by buying a new microwave. Thanks for your help.

I did the same thing by putting a candle holder in the microwave. I was trying to melt the wax but forgot the metal in the bottom
Sparks and flames, but my microwave works great since then.
USE IT UP, WEAR IT OUT, MAKE IT DO, OR DO WITHOUT :)

Where do I oil my TACSEW T 1718?


Most machines need oil where metal parts connect, interact or rub together. It is useful to first clean any old or gummed up oil away. Varsol or paint thinner is good for that. Wipe it all away, then put a single drop of sewing machine oil, not any other kind, on each spot metal parts interact. Turn the machine over and check for places underneath, see if any doors open on the top or side of the machine, or if you can remove screws to give access to the working parts inside. If you see tiny holes that don't have screws in them, these may be oil ports. If they are above otherwise inaccessible areas where metal meets metal, a drop of oil in one of these is appropriate. Set the machine on a towel or something for a day or two in case it drips excess oil. Best to be very sparing with the oil, one drop per location is usually enough. When done, turn the hand wheel and see if all is moving smoothly. If not, another drop where any part is binding may help. If it won't work after that, you need a repair man, as something may be seized. Never force anything if it's not moving properly, you can break off a gear tooth or damage a lever and parts for old machines are not so easy to get sometimes.

Bobbin case inserting wrong


I suspect the "housing" you refer to is not seated completely. Be sure to wiggle it until it slips into place. Once it is seated, the bobbin case should seat firmly as well.

I have a John Deere L110 that won't start. Mowed grass then parked it and it wouldnt start. These are all of the things we have done: New spark plug, solinoid, all 3 safety switches, battery terminals...


problem could be: brake pedal is not depressed; PTO is engaged; battery terminals are corroded; battery not charged; blown fuse; or fusible link in starting circuit is blown.These are the Most Common Causes for your Problem. Recheck your voltage of the battery and then check it under a load....Take a Jumper Cable Set and Attach the Positive Lead to the Positive Post of the Battery. Take the Other End and FIRMLY Touch the Large Post of the Soleniod on the Starter Side. If the Starter Turns the Engine, then Check the Voltage from the Ignition Switch to the Soleniod. If the Voltage is Going From the Switch to the Soleniod When the Ignition Switch is in the Start Position, then Replace the Soleniod. If No Current from the Ignition Switch to the Small Post on the Soleniod, then The Ignition Switch is Bad ....Hope this helps

MY BOBBIN CASE FELL OUT TWO PIECES HOW DO I PUT IT BACK TOGETHER


I assume you actually mean the metal ring that holds the small round case that the bobbin itself sits in. There are usually two arms that swing in to hold that larger metal ring in place and then there is a plastic and metal piece that sit behind the large metal ring. fit the plastic piece that may look somewhat like a scoop next to the metal piece that usually has the post the the bobbin fits onto and has a quite sharp tooth on it. The metal ring then goes on to hold those two pieces in place and the two arms swing in to hold the metal ring into place. The bobbin or bobbin case now can be put back in. Hint on metal ring placement: they almost always have a notch that goes at the very top where the arm on the bobbin case sits in when it is in place. You may find it easiest to do this with the machine laying on its back so you don't have to have 4 hands to hold everything in place while putting everything back in.
Good luck!

Neddle brakes - Out off the course when sewing large patterns


The reason of this missbehave is a destroyed plastic buffer, which is attached to the move limiter for the needle bar frame. It is quite a little delicate to open the machine's housing due to some hidden scews. Neccesary is to open it. You have to empty the accesory drawer. Then you have to remove the underside cover. The right side cover must be removed as well (take care of the screw which fixes the middle part of this. It is found from below through a small channel, just fitting a screw driver through the hole). Below the movable small table at the lower left front, there is a small turnknob for adjusting the horizontal alignment of big patterns. This knob has to be pulled out, also the round cover below it (best use a little hook and pull the cover out at its small hole seen from below). Remove the two screws directly under the movable table. Remove all screws, which are fixing the front cover from below the machine. Remove the hood which covers the needle bar just as you would like to change the light bulb). There are two scews to be removed holding the front cover. The foot presser handle has to be removed as well. Now gently pull the front cover off the machine. It might be neccesary to help moving the cover at the upper side, inserting a screw drivers blade into the gap between cover and machine frame. The cover should snap off now, if there are no forgotten screw connections left.
After the cover is released, take care of the ribbon cable, wich connects the display etc. with the electronich mainboard. the ribbon cable can be teared out carefully of the mainboard connector. Now you have clear sight onto the needle bar's mechanics. if you push the needle bar to the right, you can see, that the needle bar frame is stopped from a small metal piece, fixed with two screws. At the touch point of the frame and the metal piece, there is (or was) the plastic buffer, which is now destroyed and has the consistence of used chewing gum.
There are two choices: Either you find a spare part metal piece with good plastic buffer or you will have to improvise the buffer by handcrafting it.
After you repaired the metal piece, you will have to adjust it.
Moving the needle bar to the right, the needle bar clutch have to release the needle bar before the needle is over the point to stitch to the plate.

Remark: Due to the different length of the screws it might be a good idea to give some notes, which length belong to which hole.

Wish a good success,

Bernd
