Turbo Big Bobbin Winder Woes

Recommended Posts

Hi there - Looking for some assistance today - unfortunately my turbo big bobbin winder fell off the counter whilst I was tidying up and landed on a carpeted floor, (about 2 feet)

When I now try to operate it there is an alarming grinding, grating noise - I've only switched it on for a few seconds as there is definitely something alarming going on inside. 


I have unplugged from the power and pulled off the two plastic ends from the winder. Nothing appears loose or rattling - just a sprinkling of fine metal filings - Is my bobbin winder repairable - can I save it????


Feeling very sad, here in Scotland!

Hi there - just to update - Angie at APQS sent me some files and I was able to fix the problem! -  The motor inside had dislodged by barely 1/16th of an inch and this was causing the motor shaft to rub on the metal, surpassing the rubber grommet. FIXED! I am so pleased today - now I can go quilt!!
