How is the top cover removed, there are no screws. I need to remove the top cover to attach a new spool pin because the original one broke off when the machine was being transported (it fell over).

Many are held in place only by spring clips and can be removed by strong fingernails or a dull knife pushed into the **** of the cover and lifted.

How to take back off bernia 1090


It doesn't sound quite right to have to remove the back cover to replace the spool pin. Most metal pins just pull out or push in, although there are some that the pin has a screw thread. But my older Berninas have a smooth metal pin. Just a thought...

The upper part of the right spool pin broke off. I ordered a new pin but am unable to remove the old one to replace it. How do you remove the spool pin?


Depends on your machine brand and model. Some pins simply unscrew and others pull out. Probably best to look at the replacement pin you purchased.

This is from a Model 5160; might it work?
Two ways.. either put the new spool pin in the other extra hole to the left of the trap door on top
OR take out the two bigger screws on the top cover that hold it in, also take off the knobs on the front sliders (patterns selection) and remove the top cover. Push the old pin out from the inside with nail or something similar and replace. Posted on Feb 03, 2010

Parts diagram show on the left as # 10.

I have a brother xl5012 and would like to change the spool pin..not sure if its broken? the one on top is silver and the spare is plastic..not sure what to do..the manual has no answers.. thank you


On most machines, the spool pin simply screws into a threaded hole. If it was welded on or attached in some other permanent way, changing it may need a service visit. Brother has one of the very best service departments of any company I know. But try to unscrew the old one.. it might be stuck, a drop of penetrating oil, or maybe some pliers, might assist. If it comes out, a new one should screw in easily enough, so long as it matches the size of the hole and the threading.

Problem with spool pin


Doreen:

There are screws holding the top housing onto the machine. (The top housing is where the spool pin slid into). remove the screws on the top housing and pull the top housing up off of the machine. You will be able to reposition the spool pin to where it supposed to be. put the top housing back on and reinstall the screws.

How to remove back cover on bernina 830 record


.... there is no back cover - it is part of the metal frame 'housing'. You can remove the base, the top cover, the end cover (handwheel end), the cover on the freearm. You can access the spool pin fixing by taking off the top cover.

How do i take the case off my brother xr-65 to replace my spool pin and spool cap


I don't have that particular Brother but I have on that is similar.

Start by taking all of the screws out of the back that you can find (they're in deep holes, so look carefully). Then look at the bobbin area and you'll probably find one more. Finally, take the feet off of the bottom of the machine (not the presser foot, the feet that sit on the table), you'll likely find that there is a screw through the middle of the foot that also holds the case in place.

Best of luck

Push the old pin out from the inside with nail or something simila and replace.. simple. Do you have an extra spool pin you can share?
