lately I've been more of a mechanic than a maker :\/ these machines can be temperamental

Me too!!! My damn machine is killing me. Luckily I have two\/three so I'm not out of commission. But all day I worked on my pfaff :(
same here. I have still have other machines to get some things done, but I really need them all to work! I spent the past few days getting the pfaffs to cooperate, and suddenly today the singer (which was running so perfectly) started acting up. love\/hate machines
Yah it's quite a pickle we find ourselves in. My 335 just refuses to sew. I can't figure it out.
that's a bummer the 335 isn't working. good luck getting it going. I finally got my singer back in order today, running better than ever! If all else fails maybe I will become a sewing machine repairman.
Yah! I adjusted the bobbin case bc it was rubbing a bit and now it won't sew but the timing sure looks good! I can't figure it out.
they're tricky beasts, for sure. Is it picking up any stitches? I had everything perfect today - new rotary hook, perfect timing, everything tight and ready but it was still skipping stitches like crazy. turns out the needle was a bit dull and the needle hole had a tiny bit of debris that prevented it from seating properly. cleaned it out and a fresh needle and it was good.
Yeah I don't know. I retimed like ten times. It's catching the loop and it sewed fine for about six inches and then started skipping and then stopped all together. So I started over and cleaned and reset and new needle and nothing. It's like the most frustrating puzzle without a true solution. It's like luck. You never know when it will strike.
