The screw that holds the need in place loosened, the needle came down and the machine banged it into the hole in the sole plate. I can't see any damage besides the bent needle. But now the thread is shredding. I believe I might have a burr but cannot see one even when I removed the sole plate. How do I remove the bobbin assembly to check it and make sure there are no burrs? There is a long black metal "finger" holding the bobbin case in place and I cannot get the phillips screw out. Any suggestions.?
Ugh - my machine was making some noise & between quilts I checked out some old forums (should have probably just called apqs and still probably will tomorrow), but I added some oil to the top of the hook assembly. That & a different quilt top are my only changes. Thread is breaking constantly. it's being frayed somewhere. In checking through the hook - the only rough spot I have is on the "V". That's not shown as a place to buff or not to buff on the manual. Is there supposed to be a little tick there? Can I buff it? Anybody know? I should note I have adjusted tension, changed needles twice, changed the bobbin thread & the bobbin case, changed the top thread to a different cone & a different brand (from superior/superbob to glide/magnaglide & every combination). Rethreaded fully multiple times. Thanks
