New Home Timing specs?

Hi,

Saw in one of your posts that you seem to have some New Home service manuals. Would you be able to tell me what the timing tolerances are? I've found this pic online:

From your post it seems like 23b is probably the same (.05mm), I'm wondering if 23a is the same too (1.2mm) as mine is about 5mm or so.

Thanks.

Not sure who this was addressed to, just came across it today.

What model machine do you have ?

Timing is fairly straightforward.......if a top loader, then:

Remove the bobbin case, & set to widest zigzag.

When the needle rises to where the tip point is level with the top of the white plastic inner of the hook race, the hook point must align with the right side of the needle (as it rises).......the zigzag will be in the left position of it's swing (so the hook is travelling it's greatest distance)

The .05mm is the distance apart (Hook & Needle) so it seems you are OK on that score.

Depending on which model, there are several options for the hook timing....usually 2 hex nuts on the bottom shaft, to liberate the bottom shaft from the connection with the drive belt/crank so you may then adjust the hook position to the above mentioned position, re-tighten...... et voila !

Here is the same thing for a Jem Gold direct from the manual:

If this is sufficient, great, if not, let me know the model it will usually start with "V" on the compliance plate........a photo could also be helpful as we only have Janome in Australia, so shall need to translate the model across (same company makes them both, and Kenmore !)

If you want any more help with this, just post back here, or, drop a line through the "Contact Us" page at www.bargainbox.com.au

I have a Brother VX1120 sewing machine and the timing or something seems to be off. Is there any way a non professional can fix this? It is not stitching good. I have tried both tensions.


hi, could you explain more about the problem your machine is having?

in response to your question about timing, no, you have to use certain tools & have a service manual

Lookin for instruction manual for janome my lock 203


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
I have serviced this request several times and spent hours trying to find a free manual in the past. My experiences have resulted in me telling you that you will have to purchase the manual as the manufacturer does not have it on thier website:
See the link below under new home / janome my lock 203 (number 12 on the list)
http://www.sewingmanuals.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/New_Home.htm

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a Brother KH970 Knitting machine from a customer that has a problem in the timing. It doesn't select needles. I need instructions on the timing of the machine. I have manuals for older machines, but...


I have a parts manual & a service manual saved on my pc for the 970 that I can send you when I get home in a couple of weeks. Would that help? It gives the information to do tests etc.
I am also on the Yahoo MK site. That may be a better place to share as I am not sure about this site.

Needle is hitting the round , turning case that revolves around the bobbin


It sounds like your timing is off because what you're describing is exactly what happened to me last summer. I took it to a sewing machine repair shop and they repaired the problems, gave it a nice cleaning and it was like new when it came home. But it took two weeks (not a lot of repair shops around here) and that was torture as it's my only machine!!! :)
