The "KNOB" is called the "Platen Knob".... contact any local dealer/supplier for Nakajima and they should be able to help.

How do I change time and date on timex indiglo



  • How to Set Dial Indiglo Watches


    • 1Pinch the winding knob on the right side of the watch between your thumb and forefinger.


    • 2 Pull the knob out from the watch slowly until it clicks into the first position.


    • 3Turn the knob to move the hour and minute hand to set the time. Move the knob clockwise to move the settings forward and counterclockwise to move them backwards.


    • 4 Pull the knob out further until it clicks into the second position. In the second position (the one furthest from the face), turn the knob to set the calendar, if your Indiglo has one. Turn the knob clockwise to move the settings forward and counterclockwise to move them backward. Push the knob back in to the watch face when you are done.
    How to Set Digital Indigo Watches


    • 1 Press the button on the lower right side of your Indiglo watch to unlock the mode function of the watch.



    • 2 Press the button on the lower left side to move through the modes. Each time you are in a mode, the digital display will flash. For example, when the time display begins to flash, you are in the correct mode to set the time.



    • 3 Change the time (or date) by pressing the button on the upper right side to advance the numbers or the button on the left side to move the numbers down. When you do this, you will be changing the first set of numbers (the hour or month, for instance); to change the minutes, press the button on the right side of the face until the second set of numbers is flashing and begin the process again.



    • 4 Press the button on the lower left side of the watch to save your settings. The button on the upper left side of the watch is not used in this process--it is the switch to turn on your Indiglo light.

    Wheelwriter 30 paper advance


    The paper release lever may be in the release mode. try holding the left platen knob and pulling lightly on the paper is should not allow the paper to move freely, if it is ok try holding the left knob and turning the right knob in the direction you would to turn the paper in it may have come loose if so turn it all the way back in do not over tighten it your machine does not click when the platen is turned it uses electronics to hold the platen on line.

    The 6 built-in stitches (such as blind stitch, darning stitch, etc.) are not working, they only just do the basic zig zag stitch. Also the cams for decorative stitching do not work either. These are all...


    I have the same model, have you turned the first knob on left, the stitch selector, to the stitch you want? Then turn the middle knob, the stitch width to "4". Use the colour guide marks shown in the little picture on left of the knobs so you are dialing up the right settings. So for the zig zag, elastic blind hem, scallop, overcasting and multi-stretch stiches, 1-6 on the diagram you'll be setting the left knob to 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 respectively and the stitch width and length knobs to "green", you can vary the length and width to suit what you want.

    Then for the cams, you need to set everything zero, turn stitch selector to 7, the cam setting. then turn the width to orange again (3-4) and the stitch lenth selector to the orange setting, right around the knob. This engages the "Elnagraph" the device under the flap on top of the machine to read the discs. Basically the green stitches the needle is swinging from side to side while the feed dogs move the fabric forward, making your zig zags, blind hems etc.
    But when you engage the Elna graph, the machine matches stiches by moving the fabric "forward and backwards at certain times, while the needle does its thing from side to side. This is what makes elastic or stretchy type stitches because you are putting "stretch" into the seam by sewing forwards and backwards.

    Please note: always turn your stitch width and length back to Zero BEFORE you make any changes to the left knob and select a new stitch as this saves on wear and tear to the moving parts in these wonderful machines.

    I do hope this assists you and I haven't just told you stuff you already knew!

    Ge wpsq3120t2ww I have a broken control knob, how do i replace this?


    Knob(s) on left side of machine just pull off. Make sure the metal D clip comes off too. Push new knob on.
    Timer knob: Pull knob out and remove nylon clip off back side of knob. (use a thin screwdriver to push it off, or a thin needle nose plier to pull if off) then knob pulls off easy. Push new knob on with clip already in place. Easy.
