SOURCE: Can't reassemble shuttle hook and shuttle race

the hook driver (still in machine) is 1/2 moon shape. The hook is also 1/2 moon shape. If you set the machine on its back, it's easier. Set the hook 1/2 into the other 1/2 of the hook driver to make a circle. Then put the hook cover on (machine still on its back) with the tabs for the twist locks pointed out. Needle gaurd to the top of the machine. Snap the twist locks in place and viola!

SOURCE: Need Euro-pro manual asap. Needle won't pick up

T o adjust timing it is very simple. You are going to need Alan keys, just one specific one. This is for the euro pro shark X, many are the same it may work for you. Take the casing off the back of the sewing machine. A few screws is all. This reveals the back of the bobin casing. In the gear there are two small holes with alan keys in them, losen these up, this will free up your hook so you can place it where it needs to be. (www.sewusa.com). Adjust to place and then tighten back up alan keys. Finished.

I hope it helps as it just took me a while to figure out.

The upper thread becomes jammed inside the lower track of the shuttle. What can I do?


Try a brand new needle. Change thread. Make sure the needle is installed facing the correct direction and is pushed all the way up. The upper tension may be too loose.

Short of that, could be the machine's timing is off.

Needle will not catch the bobbin thread


Pick up hook as been knocked out of timing, remove feed dogs cover plate remove shuttle bobbin turn sewing machine in the correct rotation and watch the pickup hook it should be just about to go behind the needle when it's in it's lowest position just as it starts to rise up again the hook should now be behind the needle to pick up the cotton thread, if not get a screw driver and gently prise the pick up hook to it's correct position as mentioned above, this must be done whilst holding the hand wheel of the sewing machine without it moving, normally I would say undo the clamping screws that hold the hook assembly on the shaft but the majority of sewing machine will move back into position quite easily, but please do not prise it from the hook you can usually find and area to do this with out going near the hook once done turn by hand to make sure you have done it correctly as above when satisfied reassemble.
Happy sewing.

How do I time a bobbin hook on a 153W Singer


all sewing machines are basically the same, the hook that rotates to pick the cotton up off the needle must just enter behind the needle when it's on it's way back up which then grabs the cotton to form the stitch, so you must remove the sole plate to expose the shuttle case remove the shuttle and put to one side, now rotate the hand wheel on the sewing machine in the correct rotation and watch the hook rotate round until it goes behind the needle, just as the needle is starting back up from it's lowest position the hook should just be going behind the needle to pick up the cotton, if this is not the case then loosen the screws that clamp the hook assembly to the shaft and rotate the hook assembly gently until the hook is just going behind the needle and make sure the hook is close to the needle before retightening the clamping crews , and final give it a few turns by hand to make sure the hook locates the same all the time and the hook is not catching the needle, when your happy, then reassemble.

Happy sewing

Bobbin wont lock into place


Hello Lisa, There is a lever on the bobbin case that is spring loaded that secures the bobbin case to the shuttle or rotary hook, whichever you have. If you have the bobbin case in the correct position and the bobbin case pushes completely onto the stem of the shuttle but does not latch onto the stem to hold it in place, you may need a new bobbin case.

Brother 1120 sewing machine timing adjustment


Easy to do remove sole plate remove shuttle and case, don't forget to pull the spring loaded plate to one side by inserting a electrical screw driver in the slot and twisting it anticlockwise to release the case, remove drive dogs this will the expose the cotton pickup assembly turn the hand wheel anticlockwise until the hook gets close to the needle now watch the needle it should be in the lowest position and just as it starts it's way back up the hook should be just going behind the needle to pick up the tread if this is not the case and it's out of position then hold the hand wheel tight and insert a small screw driver into one of the gaps in the base were the shuttle case fits in away that you are able to move the hook assembly one way or the other with a gentle pressure and move the hook just to make it enter just behind the needle as it only just starts it's way up at this position it is now complete and you can reassemble and run slowly at first just to make sure things are okay.
Happy Sewing

2. Push levers sideways of the shuttle assembly and liftshuttle and shuttle race cove out by the center pin.

3. Clean the shuttle race of any lint or small particles of thread with a small brush.
