Question about Sailrite Ultrafeed LS-1 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I have a Family Sew Super ZigZag. That is all it says on the machine. It is a copy of Sailrite and looks like a Reliable 2000. I need a manual to troubleshoot some problems. It won't sew. It picks up the bobbin thread, but breaks on the first stitch. I makes holes and runs, I have tried re threading. I may need a bigger needle for the canvas type i am trying to sew on but at this point just a stitch of any kind will do.
The problem is that you purchased a clone of the Sailrite Ultrafeed. Most people do not know how much work Sailrite puts into each Ultrafeed Sewing Machine before it is shipped to customers. They hold 17 patents on the Zigzag Ultrafeed and know this machine inside and out. So when each machine goes through the assembly line in Indiana they are then tested by Sailrite in 2 layers of canvas then 8 layers of canvas then 4 layers of vinyl fabric if it does not sew it flawlessly they fix it, Ultrafeeds work right out of the box! So, it is highly unlikely that you will be able to get the clone machine to work. It must be totally rebuilt (a 4 hours process for an experienced technician). Sailrite will not work on any clone machines. So get your money back and buy a Sailrite Ultrafeed! If you are desperate and can not return the machine you can buy a DVD that Sailrite made for the Ultrafeed (each Ultrafeed purchased gets it free) it can be purchase here: http://www.sailrite.com/Ultrafeed-Advanced-Maintenance-DVD . It will help with timing issues, but will not show you how and what to do to rebuild the machine.
