Question about Sewing Machines
I've foolishly taken the tread tension dial off my machine, and now I can't get it back on!
I've included a picture of the parts that came off.
If you put a number in your picture like this
1 2 3 4
5 6 7 8
9 10 11 12
Its easy but you must do it exactly like what i say
A - put (1) into the handle so that the pitch goes in to the gear of the handle -make sure that (1) goes in to the handle like this shape 9
after instalation of this "check spring" , u need to bend twist it clockwise little bit so that u improvise the spring in its place (approximately 45 degree)
from now u need to hold the (1) with something so that doesnt move (screw driver or long needle )
B - (12) while u hold the "check spring" with needle , u need to open up its legs so that number (12) which is callled thread controler ( because im not familiar with terms so i explain- haha - it has two Rod, small and large Rod) small rod must go into the hole
c - (10) while u hold the "check spring" with needle , u need to open up its legs so that number (10) it goes through the handle - make sure its top hole goes into the black rod which comes out of the sweing machine - note that u must embed it in the manner that bigger peripheral put in the right hand side.
d - (5) while u hold the "check spring" with needle , u need to open up its legs so that number (5disk) goes through the handle
e - (6) while u hold the "check spring" with needle , u need to open up its legs so that number (6disk) goes through the handle
f - (11) while u hold the "check spring" with needle , u need to open up its legs so that number (11) goes through the handle
g - (9) while u hold the "check spring" with needle , u need to open up its legs so that number (9) goes through the handle - make sure its top half circle hole goes through the black rod which came out from the sewing machine.
h - (7) here you dont need to open the check spring needle . so release its leg and put the plastic male into the handle while males go in to the hole of (9)
I - (2)
J - (3)
K - (8)
ll - (4)
Done. Great Is The Lord

I would look for a dealer who has been working on machines for about 20 years and ask him to reassemble everything. I think it is going to be hard to find a tension assembly for this specialty New Home Janome Combi. It's not that hard to reassemble everything when all your parts are in your hand. Of course, once everything is reassembled your tension will need to be recalibrated.
Why did you disassemble this part? It's possible you may need a service to make the machine work properly and the dealer I described to you earlier should be considered. Talk to your friends and see how they have been treated by this dealer and if they were happy with the work that was done.
