Broken needle now hitting on uptake!

Recommended Posts

I hit a ruler, changed needle checked and cleaned bobbin area.  When I turn the fly wheel, without bobbin case, it is hitting on needle uptake as hook goes by is what it appears and what I hear. Please help me get Lennie happy again!  It’s of course Saturday evening.  Thank you

You might want to search for videos on how to retime Lenni.  Sounds like when you hit the ruler you knocked the timing out.

 

I think APQS might have the retiming video on their site.

Probably timing but you do have the needle in correctly right?  There is a long groove in the front and the scarf goes to the rear.  I put a needle in wrong once and it was after I had been quilting for several years, so don’t feel bad if you did it also.  
 

Let us know how you make out.
