How do I get Featherweight out of first gear?


Hi, unless you have thread caught up in the hook area the problem may very much be that the belt is too tight. It should be seemingly loose or just tight enough to turn the machine. There is a big screw to the motor mount. Loosen the motor and adjust it to loosen the belt. Belt too tight and slowing machine is common issue.
