Check Spring


Recommended Posts

I'm having tension issues on Millie which is very unusual. I've gone through a bunch of troubleshooting steps.

I noticed that the check spring amount of stiffness is really light. it is just very soft. Is this normal or is the spring finished?

It sounds like the spring tension might be the issue.  You can tighten the spring tension by removing the tension assembly, loosening the set screw, rotating it against the spring, tightening up the set screw and replacing it in the machine.  When you return the assembly to the machine, make sure that the spring is set at the 10:30/11:00 position when it is "resting".  Good luck.  Jim
