Question about Euro-Pro 473
My Euro-Pro Shark 473 was bunching the thread under the fabric when sewing and also wrapping the thread around the shuttle driver. The Euro-Pro website states that the upper thread is probably threaded wrong, but I followed the instructions verbatim and had sewed one seam on the fabric with no problem, but when I tried to sew the next seam, this occurred. I removed the shuttle driver cleared the thread that was around it and replaced the bobbin, but now the needle is not picking up the bobbin thread. The website states that for that problem, a technician should check it out since the timing was probably forced (whatever that means). I paid less than $100 for the machine and haven't used it more than three times in the past two years. I hate to incur an expense like this after such short usage. Has anyone dealt with this problem before and fixed it on their own?
I had the exact same problem. The timing is off. You can actually fix this yourself all you need is an allen wrench. If you look at the rod the needle is inserted into and follow it up to about 2 inches below the top of the machine there should be a clamp. use the allan wrench to loosen the clamp and adjust the needle height. I used this website as a guide to getting the timing correct. http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Repair/Repair_Pictures/timing1.gif
now if only I could figure out why my thread keeps getting jammed under the bobbin!
