Question about Sewing Machines
Cant get the shuttle hook in
I THINK YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE BOBBIN CARRIER AND BOBBIN. THERE'S A COUPLE DIFFERENT TYPES. THE ONE THAT IS MORE DIFFICULT I'LL EXPLAIN. THE OTHER ONE IS MOSTLY DROP IN. HERE WE GO:
1. WHEN YOU LOOK DOWN ON IT YOU WILL SEE A GIZMO THAT MOVES ON THE LEFT. IT SWINGS ONE WAY OR THE OTHER SO THAT IT IS AWAY FROM THE CENTER.
2. ON THE RIGHT THERE IS A SCREW (USUALLY TWO) BUT THE ONE NEAREST TO YOU NEEDS TO BE LOOSENED SO YOU CAN MOVE IT OVER SLIGHTLY.
3 PUT YOUR BOBBIN CARRIER/BOBBIN IN. MAKE SURE THE CARRIER IS ON THE RACE TRACK (WHERE IT WILL BE SLIDING). IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO PUT ONE DROP OF SEWING MACHINE OIL THERE FIRST. USUALLY YOU WILL NEED TO USE YOUR HAND WHEEL TO ROTATE THE HOOK SO IT IS THE FURTHEST AWAY FROM YOU.
4. NOW YOU CAN LOCK THE BOBBIN CARRIER IN BY MOVING THE PARTS ON BOTH SIDES THAT YOU MOVED PREVIOUSLY. IT IS IMPORTANT TO LOCK IN WHERE THE INDENTATIONS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE ON THE CARRIER. NOW, TRY TO TURN THE HAND WHEEL. IT SHOULD MOVE EASILY. AS YOU CONTINUE TO TURN THE BOTTOM AND TOP THREAD SHOULD GO UP TOGETHER. IF THE BOTTOM THREAD GETS STUCK SLIGHTLY YOU WILL NEED TO ADJUST THE PART ON THE BOBBIN CARRIER HOLDER SO IT IS AWAY FROM THE CARRIER JUST A HALF OF A HAIR'S THICKNESS. THE THREAD HAS TO RIDE ACROSS THE TOP OF THE CARRIER W/O GETTING STUCK.

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!

Just to the left of the bobbin case you will see a small lever. Remove the bobbin case and push the lever and that will release the latch which holds the race cover and shuttle (hook).
Clean well with a toothbrush and place one small drop of oil on the edge of the hook where it makes contact with the raceway. Place the hook back and snap the race cover back on.

When you put the hook in the pin that the bobbin case goes on should point towards you(this may work easier if you tilt the machine back slightly) it should fit in firmly then when this is in place put the locking ring in in front of it. on the bottom there is a pin that means that it can only go in one way but it can be put in backwards so be sure to put the plate on top it goes into the machine(there should be cut outs for the holders or little pins for the holders to go over) the tabs that hold the ring in place should always go from the top down and they will click in place.

Hi, if you go to sears parts direct and put your model #in you will get a diagram of the parts and how they go together. Looks like you have a real classic there. If, you cannot figure it out from the diagrams, try and find a reliable repairman, someone who has been in business for a few years. Good luck, Happy New Year
