Open Question

How do you put the shuttle hook back in the machine? I took it out to clean behind it and can't figure how to put it back in. The way I put it in keeps cuting the thread.

SOURCE: I have a Brother SE-270D

its the problem of the timing belt in your machine its extra loosen or extra tightned or is slightly came out of its position or finally broken.
as the machine is proper just missing the proper speed as it should be .
it is running continuosly as you stated.
check the timing belt and make it proper if its worn out and needs replacement this is how its done

There is an adjusting screw on the right side of the machine head. Follow the motor bracket to the machine head and loosen that big old screw or bolt which will raise or lower the motor giving you slack to remove or replace the belt.

feel free for further queries
thanks

SOURCE: Can't reassemble shuttle hook and shuttle race

the hook driver (still in machine) is 1/2 moon shape. The hook is also 1/2 moon shape. If you set the machine on its back, it's easier. Set the hook 1/2 into the other 1/2 of the hook driver to make a circle. Then put the hook cover on (machine still on its back) with the tabs for the twist locks pointed out. Needle gaurd to the top of the machine. Snap the twist locks in place and viola!

The plastic bobbin case should sit on top of the raceway, it should slot in quite easily, once the bobbin case is in put the small metal clip at the top over to hold it in place.

MY BOBBIN CASE HAS FALLEN APART AND I'M NOT SURE HOW TO PUT THE PIECES BACK TOGETHER.


Sounds like you are describing the hook. Perhaps the owner's manual would be assistance. We don't know the make/model of your machine so are really unable to help. There are some videos on YouTube that show how to install a shuttle and bobbin case, but machines differ.

How do I time a bobbin hook on a 153W Singer


all sewing machines are basically the same, the hook that rotates to pick the cotton up off the needle must just enter behind the needle when it's on it's way back up which then grabs the cotton to form the stitch, so you must remove the sole plate to expose the shuttle case remove the shuttle and put to one side, now rotate the hand wheel on the sewing machine in the correct rotation and watch the hook rotate round until it goes behind the needle, just as the needle is starting back up from it's lowest position the hook should just be going behind the needle to pick up the cotton, if this is not the case then loosen the screws that clamp the hook assembly to the shaft and rotate the hook assembly gently until the hook is just going behind the needle and make sure the hook is close to the needle before retightening the clamping crews , and final give it a few turns by hand to make sure the hook locates the same all the time and the hook is not catching the needle, when your happy, then reassemble.

Happy sewing

Should the machine have some oil? Where? It is a Bernina Activa 130


The Activa range is fitted with a light-weight part-plastic hook/shuttle that Bernina claims does not require oiling. However, this does not mean it shouldn't be regularly cleaned and I'd recommend that it is also lightly oiled at the same time. Remove the bobbin case, press the metal lever to the top left of the bobbin door and the black plastic hook/shuttle retainer should pop open so that the hook/shuttle can be removed, or it will just drop out anyway. Use a cotton bud to firmly clean around the inside edge of the hook race (the round piece that the hook/shuttle sits in. Give the whole thing a good clean to make sure any surface grime/fluff is removed. Put a small drop of oil on the running surface of the hook race - the recessed groove around the inside edge, before replacing the hook/shuttle and holding in place by pressing the hook/shuttle retainer back until the securing lever clicks back into place. Rotate the handwheel once to distribute the oil and off you go. Dont overoil but do this regularly and your machine will run much quieter and produce a consistent stitch formation.

I took out the bobbin case and then the shuttle race. Now I can't remember which one I should put back in first.


Clean the shuttle area, the hook and the cover with a toothbrush, removing all lint and debris. Place one small drop of sewing machine oil on the rim of the hook. Place the hook back in the raceway and replace the cover. Snap the two retaining levers back to hold the cover in place.

Machine is very loud and jumpy


Hi,
Usually this problem occurs on machines with a front load bobbin case. If so, remove the bobbin case, the shuttle hook cover (two levers to the sides of the bobbin case area cover and shuttle hook (part the bobbin case goes on and it is ½ mooned shaped). Then clean and oil (with Q-tips and sewing machine oil NOT 3 n1 oil) the round outer area where the hook rides. No lint at all and squeaky clean. Then 3 drops of sewing machine oil in rounded groove where the shuttle hook rides. Then replace the pieces:
Replace hook:
Identify the the hook driver (still in machine), it is 1/2 moon shape. The hook is also 1/2 moon shape. If you lay the machine on its back,( it's easier). Set the hook 1/2 into the other 1/2 of the hook driver to make a circle. Then put the hook cover on (machine still on its back) with the tabs for the twist locks pointed to you. Needle gaurd on hook cover to the top of the machine. Snap the twist locks in place, replace the bobbin case and viola!

Pfaff creative 7570 shuttle assembly


Have a look at www.sewusa.com they have a "repair & threading page" this may help you re-assemble your machine. It is impossible to explain how to put the thing back together and re-time it, it is something you need to be shown how to do. Other alternative is to take it to a sewing machine tech.

Putting back the pieces of bobbin case on Kenmore Mini Handi


This is for front loading bobbin..........

The Shuttle hook will look very much like this, and marries this to the "half moon" of the fixed shuttle.

3ff0a50.gif
The retaining collar ring that holds it all together has a plate like protrusion (like bull horns), this faces to the top and to the back.......there should be a small lug (or two) with corresponding small hole or slot on the fixed housing (hook race) that locates the ring tightly in the correct position.

There should be 2 swivel arms (black plastic at 4 o'clock & 8 o'clock)) that move to hold the whole thing together by clipping onto a small lug on each side of the ring.

If you tip the machine 30 degrees on its back while you do all this, it makes the process easier, as things are less likely to fall out.........support the back with a soft object for convenience (tissue box, pillow etc)

The bobbin case goes in after the housing is assembled, if you try to do it first, it will prove more difficult.

If this is not quite accurate for your model a photo of the bits would be helpful
