One is to try with a magnet or if its to far in that then tip it upside down and shake it or turn on its side and see if it falls out.falling all that you may have to open it up but what ever one you do make sure its turned off.

You can get to underneath all sewing machines. Lift it off its base, or unlatch and tip it over. You have to be able to to service and lubricate. If you can see it, you can put a piece of chewing gum on the end of a pencil :>)

Singer 4423 - dropped faceplate screw under bobbin area and can't get to it.


If you can pick up your sewing machine, open the access to the bobbin area, grasp the sewing machine, turn it over and gently shake the machine so the screw will fall out.

Replacing needle on Singer overlocker.


The manual should have instructions. Most overlocker needles have a screw that holds each needle in place. Just loosen the screw with the screwdriver that came with your machine, slide the old needle out (note which direction the flat side of the needle is facing), insert the new needle as far up as it will go, and tighten the screw. Don't lose those screws or drop them inside the machine. If you remove a needle so you can serge without it, be sure to tighten that screw so it doesn't fall out.

Machine isn't sewing right. Underside thread is very loopy. Was sewing fine but thread jammed in bobbin area.


Remove all remnants of the thread from the bobbin area.
First thing first - thread inside bobbin should be tightly wound in. Insert bobbin into bobbin case and thread through slot and under the spring. Spring has small screw which regulates the tension. Hold the lot by thread like yo-yo and jerk a little down-up. It should drop just a little (not run down) - that is usually required bottom thread tension,
if not, regulate with the screw. Set top thread tension 3 and sew. If still looping under, increase the top tension higher till the looping disappears. Also try new needle.

Bolt under bobbin winder fell inside machine LS-2125i


My brother machine has 2 screws that are under the carry handle, this removes the top piece of the casing and then you should be able to just tip the machine upside down to drop the screw out. Hope this helps.

The screw by the bobbin winder has come out. I can't get it to thread back in - it doesn't tighten. How can I fix this?

Remove sewing maqchine case


Plate on bottom: Remove screws. Keep screws in safe place and oil moving parts with good quality sewing machine oil. Zoom with spout for sewing machines & servers is what I use purchased online...lubricate gears with Singer lubricant (in tube). Tip machine back onto a towel to remove screws. Just one drop oil on moving parts & dot of lube gear only if not showing signs of grease already. Please remove bobbin and presser foot before cleaning/oiling. One drop oil then generously SMEAR oil on oscillating hook, open right front door & one drop top of needle bar. Clean out race shuttle for lint, fuzz balls, broken threads with soft sewing machine brush & clean your feed dogs gently with bristles too. Hope this helps. Do not clean machine near children or curious pets! I run my machine with pedal on table top so I don't accidentally step on it. Control with right hand to see moving parts. At your own risk, of course. Safe and effective but only if you are extremely careful. Replace all screws securely. Put in new needle all the way UP into needle bar groove, presser foot UP turning handwheel towards you, flat end of needle to back, Thread Front to Back of needle.. Keeping presser foot raised @ highest position ensures thread locates the tension slots properly. Jimmy

HOW TO TAKE APART 385.19233 SEWING MACHINE


Unplug sewing machine.
Tip machine gently back onto a towel and use a screw driver to remove screws on bottom plate.
If you wish to oil your machine, only oil moving parts with good quality sewing machine oil - no more then one drop. The gears can be greased with Singer lubricant. Of course, never use cooking oil or body oil to oil or grease machine as this can coagulate in the machine and damage it.I hope this helps.

I have a Bernina Aurora 430 (not on your list). For some reason, the feed dogs have dropped. The button that usually drops them isn't working.


If you remove the metal plate on the bottom of your machine, you can see the workings of the feed dog raise and lower button. With some luck it just might be a screw that came out or it might be a broken spring inside the sewing arm.
Without a service manual or a view of what it should look like inside when it is functioning correctly, at best you would just be guessing. It should be a simple 5 min fix but it is best to take it to a Bernina dealer for proper repair. Good luck, bushvideo
