Make sure that the thread passes under the pretension disk.
Hook Pretension disk Pull it in as far as possible.
Make sure that the thread is pulled as far as possible into the pretension disk, otherwise the bobbin may not be wound cleanly.
Spring on the shaft Notch 7-10 cm (2-3/4 – 3-15/16 inches)
Pull the thread taut and hold the end of the thread straight up. If the thread is too short, not pulled taut or held at an angle, injuries may occur when the thread is wound around the bobbin.
Make sure you follow the instructions carefully. If you do not cut the thread completely, and the bobbin is wound, when the thread runs low it may tangle around the bobbin and cause the needle to break.
Sewing speed controller (For models equipped with the sewing speed controller.)
Not winding the bobbin properly may cause the thread tension to loosen, and may break the needle.
