My LSZ-1 was working just fine. I changed thread and bobbin, and my machine started acting-up.

When I sew, the thread is being drawn out of the needle. I adjusted the upper tension - no luck. With help of the video, I dissembled the upper tension assembly, cleaned to, and reassembled. Still no luck. The thread is still backing out of the needle.

Next move was to check the bobbin. As I look at the face of the bobbin, as opposed to the closed case side, when I pull the thread, the bobbin rotates clockwise. No luck. The thread is still backing out of the needle.

So, I'm lost. Suggestions?

EJ

Hi EJ,

Easy one. You are threading the needle the wrong way. Thread from left to right as you sit in front of the machine. Otherwise the hook just pulls the thread from the needle as it swings by.

Hey Matt,

Yep, threaded the needle left-to-right, and I was in business!

An answer within four-minutes at 10:30pm. Well above and beyond, my friend! Thank you!

My machine has seen light use since I bought it four years ago. Is there a periodic maintenance video addressing lubrication and adjustments?

Sold on Sailrite,

EJ

Hi EJ,

Glad that fixed it for you and thanks for the nice comments.

The primary maintenance items are simple cleaning and oiling. I like to oil my machine at the beginning of any major project. You will need to remove the top and left cover to get inside the machine. Basically oil any metal to metal contact points and gears or cams. You can operate teh machine by hand as you do this to see what components move. In the guidebook there are references to all of the critical oil points too.

As far as adjustments go I would check the cap spring from time to time to make sure it has not sustained a needle strike. There is a section in the guidebook that shows how to polish out a ding if necessary. Other than this is you are sewing fine just keep on sewing :)
Best Regards,
