Question about Vacuums

2 Answers

So, I was sewing along and heard a thump...kind of sounded like a louder version of what you hear when the needle hits a pin...but I wasn't using pins. This, of course, lead to the thread jamming so I had to clear that. When rethreading I pulled out the bobbin case to make sure it was seated correctly and found a kind of "v" shaped piece of wire (about the width of a paper clip I guess) sitting loose under the bobbin case. I took it out and threw it away. Still can't pull up the bobbin thread. I'm guessing that the thump I heard was a part breaking...any ideas for me?

    I'm sure I can find the piece if I need to...I save that bag of trash.

    The machine is a Euro-Pro model # 9110

That part was the hook end of the spring that was supposed to put tension on the bobbin - it will have to be replaced. This is a special flat spring that unfortunately only a repair shop of a dealer has it - you will have to take your machine to one. Sorry, this isn't something you can fix yourself. In the mean time do not attempt to use the machine , the needle arm will be damaged.

Hi, I have a silly question. How on earth do I thread my Brother Xr-65 sewing machine?!! I have misplaced the users manual during my recent move. It seems to take thread a little differently than my...


The XR-65 and the XR-65T are the same except that the T indicates the sewing machine was sold with the Quilting Table and some accessories for quilting.

To thread the sewing machine, first lift the presser foot and use the handwheel to raise the needle to its highest position. The thread take up lever should be at its highest point. Place the spool of thread on the horizontal pin secured with the appropriate cap. Make sure that the thread comes off the spool from the bottom front, (Also check that the catch (for holding the thread when not in use) on the spool is at the back of the pin.) Then bring the thread to the thread guide at the back of the machine then down past the reverse lever and back up the the thread take up lever. Wrap the thread around the take up lever so that it slides into the slot and then goes through the hole in the take up lever from right to left. Bring the thread down again and place it behind the guide above the needle. Then thread the needle from front to back.

Brother has the manual available for download: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/files/dlf/doch000061/xr52c65txl64526562ug01enesfr.pdf . See page 31 (43 of the PDF) for the pictures of the upper thread path.

I hope this helps.

Hello. I just used my dyson dc25 for the first time and using the wand was kind of tough, felt stiff and wasn't easy to keep out to use. Any ideas??


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your new DC25. You should find that although the hose and wand may feel a little stiff to begin with, they should loosen up with use. You can expedite the process by stretching out the hose to it's fullest extent whilst someone else holds the cleaner in place.

If you have any further questions about using or maintaining your Dyson, please get in touch with us directly so one of our experts can provide the assistance you need. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

The tension of the thread on top and bottom is not equal. How do you adjust the bottom thread to make it equal to the top?


Hello

First locate the sewing machine tension gauge. Sometimes its called a knob or a button or found on your Touch Screen if you have a computerized machine. Refer to your manual if you can't find it.

Either your needle thread is too tight or your bobbin thread is too loose.

First check that your bobbin thread hasn't slipped out of its tension spring in the bobbin case.

If the bobbin thread is correctly threaded through the tension spring, then decrease your needle tension by 1 number. Test by stitching several inches on your small quilt sandwich. Keep decreasing the tension until no needle thread is visible on the quilt top.

If sewing machine tension problems occur during the middle of a quilting session, again, first refer to the checklist above. Once you're satisfied that your sewing machine is threaded properly and your needle is not the culprit, then adjust the tension as outlined above.

If you have just started testing your quilting thread choices and you are using different threads for the needle and bobbin, you will in all probability make adjustments to your tension.

Make a small quilt sandwich from the materials used in your quilt to make this sandwich. It doesn't have to be pretty or even pin basted. It should be just big enough to test some of the stitching you plan to do on your quilt.

The needle keeps hitting medal on the down stroke


I assume that you are talking about a sewing machine. If the needle strike the bobbin case, the timing between the needle and the hook has shifted and needs to be reset. For instructions on how th se the timing visit http://www.ehow.com/how_6644380_set-sewing-machine-timing.html
