My foot pedal often doesn't run right. I press and press and it only runs one stitch at a time. Can I get into the pedal to check the wires? The little curly thread guide that is attached to the needle metal part broke off. How can I replace this?
Same thing happened to my CE-200. It would only stitch one stitch at a time or else it would run full speed. My husband made an adjustment through a small hole on the back of the pedal and it now works much better. The adjustment hole apparently allows you to set the sensitivity of the electronics inside the pedal. He turned it slightly toward the + direction. It took a couple of small adjustments to get it to work nearly normal again.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You need a foot like this one so you can guide the folded edge of the fabric hem along against the white plastic foot. This is a generic style snap on blind hem foot, your machine should have one in the accessories that looks like this if your machine has a blind hem stitch included in its functions.
You fold the fabric into a upside down Z shape and run the top folded edge along the white guide with the fabric under the foot, hard to explain but once youve done it once, it makes sense.
You need to select the stitch on your machine that looks like 3 small zigzags, then one bigger one, or 3 straight stitches, then one zig zag to the side. This is the blind hemming stitch. You'll possibly also have a blind hemming foot to use, which helps with guiding the fabric fold into the machine and keeping it even. But if not, you should be able to buy one from your Huskqvarna dealer or a generic one from www.sewingpartsonline.com may well fit.
Blind hemming works best when hemming straight edges of fabric such as a ruffle on a full skirt - if there is any curve in the seam, it gets much harder and the result won't look so good. In essence, you press the fabric hem up, then fold the hem edge back under so you have a "S' shape, then sew along the single layer with the folded edge sitting against the foot guide. Then when the machine takes the 4th wide stitch, the needle swings to the left and catches a small stitch into the upper folded layer, then back onto the hem. The trick is adjusting the stitch so that the wide stitch doesn't show much on the right side of the garment
Make sure that you have it wound around the thread guide the correct way, or else you have no tension, and that your bobbin pushed against the bobbin winder. Study your manual, and if you need one with bigger print go to www.singerco.com and download one for free, then adjust your text size. Good luck
manuals can be purchased @ janome. com. your machine should have a bobbin winder. Set empty bobbin on the bobbin winder pin. Thread spool of thread though guide(or tension wheel on the top of the machine;NOT the stitching tension.) wrap thread around bobbin to start, and push bobbin toward the flywheel. slowly press foot pedal and bobbin should begin to turn. apply more pressure to foot pedal to increase speed.When full, bobbin winder should kick back to stop.
Are you sure you have the bobbin the right way round in the holder....when you look at the bobbin and tug the thread, the bobbin should move clockwise.
Pull out the foot pedal and use bsr2 with the start/stop button.
Bring bobbin thread to top of work before starting to sew. This may help knotting problem
i spoke with support and they tell me that this is a threading issue. pull the thread back and forth, like flossing, under the plastic plate on top so the thread clicks into place. then procede with threading.
Solution taken from "Handbook for Huskylock Sewing Machine Models 1001L/1000L/1000"
1. Raise the presser foot by using presser foot lever. When the presser foot is raised, the two thread tension discs in the thread tension control panel are released so that thread passes freely between them. Otherwise thread tension may not be correct.
Important! When threading the needle, always be sure to lift the presser foot lever, and also take care to thread in the proper order.
Threading order: 1. Upper looper thread (green) 2. Lower looper thread (blue) 3. Double chain stitch looper thread (purple) in case of 5 thread stitch or double chain stitch 4. Right needle thread (red) 5. Left needle thread or double chain needle thread (yellow)
Caution! Because the left thread tension dial (yellow) is used for either the left needle or the double chain stitch needle, these needles will never be used at the same time.
Upper looper (green) sequence: 1. Thread holder (silver triangle openings attached to thread holder stand) 2. Thread guide (flat silver clips just behind thread tension disc) 3. Thread tension disc (circular knobs with numbers for tension setting) 4. Pull thread around upper looper guide and upper looper 5. Pull thread into hole of upper looper
Lower looper (blue) Repeat 1, 2, 3. 4. Pull thread around guide (see color coded chart inside front serger cover).
Easy threading mechanism (for lower looper) 1. Pull out the lower looper threading lever 2. Thread the lower looper and position the thread on hook of the lower looper threading lever. 3. Push the lower looper threading lever back to its basic position while holding the end of the thread.
Caution: When returning the lower looper threading lever, always make sure that the two blue triangle marks (directional arrows) meet each other.
Right needle thread (red) Left needle thread (yellow) Important: Thread the needles after threading of lower looper and upper looper. First raise the presser foot lever, and then thread the needle threads in order shown in color coded thread guide.
