Question about New Home L-373 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Need a rubber wheel for a 1946 New Home.

I bought a 1946 New Home sewing machine in near mint condition. My mother had the exact same machine . This machine doesn't have a belt but a rubber wheel on a shaft from the motor. This rubber wheel then pushes against the hand wheel and makes it turn. I know this is going to be a hard part to find because after all these years the rubber gets hard. Does anyone have any ideas of something else I can use. I would love to use it.

How to get the light bulb out of new home 605 sewing machine

If it is bayonet type bulb, you may have to push in on the bulb and twist simultaneously. (Rubber fingertips are very helpful!)

Other bulbs simply unscrew.

However, there are also some machines (mostly newer models) which require the bulbs to be replaced by a technician.

Where can I get a manual for a vintage Montgomery Ward sewing machine?


I would suggest that you advertise in a magazine for antique machines. However, be careful with the electrics. I would suggest that you find a retired electrician or a radio ham that can check it over etc before you use it. Also these days things need to be grounded. Your machine will have a 2 wire lead and the old 2 pin flat blade plug. Many years ago I was the electrical engineer for "a department of the airforce" and on one of my reports after a fatality on something not grounded was taken and put verbatim into UL. So please get someone technical to see to it and have it grounded.

Bobbin on Bernina 807 won't wind?


Please follow the logic checks and possible corrections:

1. Check the winder shaft for a sticking or a stuck condition. If stuck or sticking, add a drop or two of mineral spirits to the winder shaft and the winder support bushing. This will generally release the winder shaft.
If the winder shaft becomes free wheeling, clean off excess solvent and apply a drop of Bernina machine oil which is typically a class 68 machine oil. You can also use a common white mineral sewing machine oil.
Do not use WD-40 or 3 in 1 oil!
If WD-40 had been used prior to the winder seizure then you'll know why....Removing sticky WD-40 residues requires further measures.

2. If only the rubber wheel has hardened, you will need to replace the winder hub with a new hub and replaceable winder ring or the entire winder can be replaced. There are some very good after-market parts available online.

3. If the winder parts are good and you are describing a condition where the hand-wheel will not release so that the machine drives while trying to wind a bobbin, this would requite another question and detailed answer... SewTechnical Home

Janome new home 580


so, the belt adjustment screw is stuck? loosening+ tightening the belt is an abnormal requirement unless the previous owner messed with it. the belt should be neither too loose or tight. both conditions will mess up sewing. this is where experience with a variety of machines comes in handy. i can tell by the feel of the belt. it should be firm. a displacement of around 3/4" is a general guide when lightly pulling it toward the front of the machine(toward you.) belt tension, upper thread tension, and bobbin race tension are difficult subjects for those not used to sewing. very important also to use the correct needle for each project. what needle size+point did u use for sewing velcro?
