Question about Sewing Machines
I tried to adjust the screw on the hand wheel knob. Now the screw has come off and I can't find it. That's not the worst of it. I can see a frayed place on the belt and I can't get the hand wheel off to get to it. When I was adjusting the screw the inner knob fell off. I put it back on but probably wrong as it had some kind of slip on guide on the back it seemed in place but now I don't know. It was just having the hand wheel jam-up and not allow the needle post to go up so it wouldn't sew and down now it's worse. Can you help me figure out how to get the hand wheel off so I can try to replace the belt. Then hopefully the crazy thing will sew again.

you need to replace your shukle that holds the tread bobbing below.it is either slack or broken . if it is slack then you tighten the little screw that holds a cover that gives the thread tension .if its broken then replace it.once the thread is slack below it will cause your thread to bundle up.

hi my names angela ive been a seamstess all my life. and it seems there could be a number of soulutions to your problem.first check your needle is in the correct way with the long ridge of the needle facing inwards.
second check you have the thread threaded correctly and it isnt twisted around twice anywere. and check that it pulls quite freely with ur foot lifted.
third. it could be flaw with ur spool case check it isnt damaged by running your finger along the edges if its catching u can file it down a little with a nail file.
fourth it could be your spool is not high enough in the case. so place ur case on a peice of paper and cut around a circle cut a smaller circle inside and insert it into ur spoolcase if your thtead is pulling to tight then you dont need that solution.
well i hope i was useful to you angela,,

I'm sure you have a pair of Channel lock pliers around.Place a fairly thick piece of fabric around the inner knob to keep from scratching it. Grasp it with the pliers while holding the handwheel and turn it to the left. IF you can't hold the wheel to keep it from slipping, place a screwdriver or something else under the needle set screw area, turn the wheel until the set screw is resting against the set screw and then turn the inner knob with the pliers.

I used to have an old Bernina that had an inner and outer hand wheel. Loosening the inner wheel disconnected the needle bar from the motor so you could wind the bobbin without running the needle up and down. It sounds to me like your machine has the same feature, but resistance on the needle makes the inner wheel loosen up. I don't know whether wrenching on it as tight as you can would be enough, or whether this is a symptom indicating that there is something loose internally in the connection between the inner and outer wheels. Good luck!
