Depending on how far apart you took it you may need to take it to a service technician. if its only the cover plates the newer machines usually only have screw holes on the back of the machine and usually under the handle.

How can i reassemble the lower case of my singer 2010 superb sewing machine


Most machines you have to put things together and take them apart in a specific order. Look for tabs that fit in specific holes. Also most of the time the parts that go over the motor go first, then front sections and then the back. You can contact singer directly and they can walk you through it in a live chat. Otherwise I have had really good luck working with the people at the link I attached. Good luck Sewing Machine Repair Repair Sewing Machines Sewing Machines Repair Fix...

I need to take apart my Brother SE 400 so I can replace the spool pin.


This is general information for all sewing machines. There are often hidden screws inside and clips that can not be seen. You can gently pry the machine apart and see where it is hanging up. Often the screws are reached from the side with a long Phillips screwdriver. You will need a flashlight to see them. Some models have access to the cover screws after removing a knob or the bottom plate.

385 kenmore sewing machine


385 just means it's a Janome badged for Sears. The actual model number is the first 4 or 5 digits after the 385 portion.. like 385.1234567890

Machines that don't reverse are often dirty or the lubricants are gummed up (try running the machine in 15 minute bursts, full throttle, with the needle out; sometimes that helps.) Otherwise: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091124135216AAUyR3H

How to take the safty cover off of a husquvarna sewing machene


I suggest getting a service manual that will show the various screws that have to be removed. In general, pull off the hand wheel, remove the screws from the bottom of the machine, and remove the screws from the back side of the machine. You'll need a set of Torx tools (from the local auto store). Also note that the plastic cover pieces snap together and will have to gently pried apart. Don't take off the front cover unless you have to. It's got electrical connections and is much more difficult to reassemble correctly.

I need to take apart my Brother XR-52 sewing maching to replace the spool pin. I have removed all the screws and cannot figure out how the case comes apart. Thank you.


XR-52 (and probably similar) has 9 screws on the back and bottom that needto be undone - be sure to keep track of which screw goes where becausethey're almost all different. One other screw is under the "nose" piece which holds the front shell to the back - it just needs to be loosened. After you haveremoved the 9 screws and loosened the one I mentioned you start at the bottom and pry apart carefully of course, noticing that the last part comes apart at the top where the three wheels go thru the back shell. In order to take off the front shell you need to remove two more screws, also fairly obvious. Reassembly is opposite order being sure when you get ready to put the back on that you align the three wheels at the top first, then work down to the bottom, replacing all the screws. That's really it - not rocked science. Just be sure not to over-tighten screws going into plastic. Have fun!

Took apart tension button on sewing machine


This could be tricky, look on line for a diagram of a typical tension assembly. There aren't that many parts but they can be put on in the wrong order. There is probably a set screw somewhere that has vibrated loose, you need to tighten it after replacing the unit.

Shuttle alignment and assembly


The shuttle/race/bobbin system shouldn't really be taken apart by the average user. Unfortunately, your chances of ever getting it back together properly so the machine will sew (this is the timing of the machine) are very slim. You'll need to take it to a sewing machine technician. I would recommend an authorized Pfaff tech as they'll be sure to have the proper tools to do this correctly - won't be inexpensive but will be worth it. Most "neighborhood sewing machine repair folks" don't have experience on computer machines. Resetting timing on a computer machine isn't the same as the old mechanicals and requires some expertise.

NECCHI 525FA


I have a brand new 525FA. I can try to take a pic of it tomorrow for you. I may have to call my mom to see what part you need a picture of cause I'm not familiar with sewing machine parts at all. But I'll check with her. Or maybe you can take a pick of what you need to see. Then I can look at it, and take a pic of the same thing on mine.
