Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I have a kitchenaid KHMS155L microwave. I need to replace the handle which I have. I have removed the three screws on the side of the door which loosens the bottom part and allows me to see the bottom screw. The top of the door is not coming out which would allow me to get to both screws, what am I missing?

    The inside of the door which needs to come out so I can get to the handle screws, pops out about an inch on the bottom left which allows me to see the bottom handle screw I can get my fingers in it but the top left which would allow me to see the top handle screw does not pop out.

Most microwave doors have additional screws hidden under the plastic trim.. Carefully lift the trim with a thin blade putty knife and you will be able to access the screws.

Can't take top off Singer 6215c, because levers on the front and bobbin winder on the top are in the way. What am I not seeing to do?


Rest assured, there IS a way to get it off! However, in your case, I would purchase the service manual for your machine; it will describe how to get the sides and top off, and in which order they should go. For instance, It's possible that before you take off the top, you have to take off one side. You can purchase it for a nominal sum; http://www.sewingpartsonline.com has a great many of these service manuals, and if they don't have it, they can order it for you.

My wife has a Pfaff creative 7570. If you open flip top under the handle there are two phillips head screws After you take those two screws out how do you remove the section?


That panel can be tricky. First remove the top panel that has the stich numbers on it. After that is off remove the 2 screws, then you will need to lift the right side off and wigle the bobbin winder back and forth. After you get the right side lose it should slide out to the right.
What are you opening it for?

After winding 2 new bobbins, the LED screen remains showing the bobin being wound, even when bobin is removed from spindle and spindle is mived back to the left.


The front panel circuit board has a microswitch which is activated mechanically when the bobbinwinder is moved to the winding position. The error is most likely with the microswitch stuck in one position. The remedy requires you to have moderate mechanical aptitude. The best thing to do would be to take it to your dealer for repair. If you want to try to do it yourself, here you go:
  • DO NOT REMOVE THE SCREW HOLDING THE SMALL PLASTIC BOBBINWINDER STOP NEXT TO THE BOBBINWINDER SPINDLE
  • Open the top lid and, with a straight slotted screwdriver, remove the two large silver screws
  • Close the lid and raise the handle into the carry position
  • Loosen, but don't remove, the small phillips screw underneath where the right side of the handle rests
  • Pull the top of the right side cover over slightly
  • Remove the small phillips screw underneath where the left side of the handle rests
  • With the handle up in the carry position and the lid closed, lift the entire top cover from the left side first, exposing where the handle attaches underneath
  • Carefully bend the lower part of the handle to the right and detach it from its mount
  • Remove the top cover and handle
  • With the top cover removed, you can see the bobbinwinder arm make contact with the microswitch
  • If you are extremely careful to not touch the circuit board with your bare fingers or with a metal object, you can manually press the microswitch to see if it works
  • The plastic microswitch "button" may have become detached
  • The "spring" on the end of the bobbinwinder arm may have become bent
  • Don't remove the bobbinwinder assembly

How do i open the side door on my janome 1018s where the neddles and light is


On some sewing machine the door is called Lamp Cover Door & has a hinge at the back of the door,, gently pull toward the back of the machine to open the door & the light bulb should be easy to get to.
Some are called Face Plate-there should be a plug in the middle of the door-remove gently with a small screw driver- there should be a small screw to remove-the door should come off easily--change bulb--replace screw-replace plug

Husqvarna 2000 series (64 40) How to remove handwheel to replace handle screw.


Hi, to remove the handwheel on a Viking 6440 you just need to take two screw drivers, one on each side, and gently pry the handwheel off. Nothing else is keeping it attached. Many of these are just stuck a bit and need gentle prying.
Good luck.

Machine quit like it blew a fuse


The 9000 has a safety fuse which blows to protect the circuit board from overloading. It is a simple 3amp fuse available at Radio Shack or automotive store.

If you are mechanically inclined, give it a try. If you are not, take it to a dealer who knows how to repair it.

Remove the top cover by taking the two large screws and the small one under the handle, LHS.

Remove the left side cover. The hidden screw is a 2.5mm allen accessed through the vent.

Lay the machine on its back and remove the four large phillips screws on the bottom and the small screw for the side, paying extreme caution with respect to the embroidery arm.

CAREFULLY move the base unit to the left and out of the way.

Inside the body of the machine you will see a black box held in place by three or torx/slotted screws. Remove the screws and, as you slowly pull the box out MAKE NOTE OF WHICH WIRES PLUG IN WHERE.

One of the wires will not remove.

On the other side of the box, remove the two screws that hold the cover on.

Inside, remove the two screws that hold the board.

Inside you will find two fuses. One will be blown. Replace with new fuse and reassemble.

When refitting the base unit, make sure that the knee lifter is on the correct side of the lever. Also, orient the base so that the accessory bin fits properly.

After securing the base unit with the four large screws, test the knee lifter to make sure that you got it right.

You will then need to recalibrate your clothsetter if you have one.

How do you remove the back cover on a newhome 6000 sewing machine to change the drive belt


I believe there is a small screw under the handle on the right side which must be loosened. There is a screw in the bottom which must be removed.Finally, there is a hidden Allen screw on the side. You can see where it is because the space is slightly larger.

Elna 6003Q Sewing Machine won't snap out of bobbin winding mode


I had the same problem and fixed it myself. Remove the portion of the housing that coincides with the bobbin winder. You will need to remove two screws to do this--one is just to the upper left of the bobbin winder itself, and one is hidden under the handle on the left side of the machine (lift the handle, and look on the machine on the left side.) It takes some coaxing to remove the housing, but it can be done--be gentle. If you need to, remove the housing on the left side of the machine that covers the needle assembly. This will make it a bit easier, but still, be gentle.)
After removing the housing, you will see a black metal piece with a elongated slot and a screw adjacent to the bobbin winder mechanism. Unscrew the screw a turn or two, and slide the piece to the other side. Tighten gently. Turn your machine on, and move your bobbin winder back and forth and watch the screen change from bobbin winding to the main straight stitch screen. Now, do a brief Dance of Joy. I hope this helps.

Loose end cap cover.


Hi,

This actually applies to most of the newer Pfaff machine models:
  1. If the cover will come completely off, look at the inside of it to make sure the bracket that holds it in place is not broken. If it's not broken...
  2. Grab a flashlight
  3. Remove the stitch lid - there are little silver clips at the base of the lid on either side - push the lid either to the left or right against these clips and you'll be able to pop it right off. You will reverse procedure to put it back on. Removing the lid isn't absolutely necessary but does make it easier to see/access screw.
  4. Raise the handle of the machine
  5. Aim your flashlight into the machine behind the left side of the handle... you should be able to see down inside the machine to the set-screw that holds the side cover in place
  6. Check to see what kind of screwdriver you need - either a Phillips head or a Torx Driver. Most of the newer Pfaff models require a Torx Driver (this is a star-shaped screw-driver available at most hardware stores - Size T25 should fit this particular screw)
  7. Slide cover back into place - may need to wiggle it a bit to get the bracket under the screw
  8. Tighten screw & you should be back in business
If the bracket on the inside of the cover is broken, this part will need to be replaced. Pfaff parts are only available through an authorized Pfaff dealer so your local dealer will need to order it for you.

Hope this helps - please don't hesitate to respond if you need further help or clarification.

Happy sewing,
Kim & Linnette
