Sewing Machine Repairs You Can Do At Home

A sewing machine at home gives you the freedom to repair, design or alter the clothes in a comfortable way. However, when you are working as a seamstress, you need to remain prepared to handle all types of sewing machine repairs as you can easily return back to work within no time.

Although your machine may have been sold with a guarantee, it may not always be practical to send your machine away for repair or to find your nearest service point for your particular model. It is also the case that many sewing machine repairs are minor and they can be carried out at home with just a little know how.

Basic maintenance is sufficient for resolving most of the problems that you may Maskiner face with your machine and even seizures and loud noises can be fixed with simple machine repairs. In some cases, if your machine is a top quality model, it will most probably be too heavy to be sent right away for repairs. Before packing your machine for sending it for repairs, you can do a few things at home to see if they work and resolve your sewing machine problem.

Unclogging the machine

In some cases, your machine may get clogged with fibers. This happens when you use your machine continuously for long durations when lots of lint gets accumulated in the machine. This mainly depends upon the type and quality of thread used. In some cases, your machine may even get clogged within hours of use.

In some cases, thread may collect around chamber and bobbin. This thread can be pulled free from both the areas using tweezers, or using a hand held vacuum using a special brush for any lint build up.

It is necessary for you to unclog your machine of any debris that may build up over a period of time before lubricating it properly. Oiling is necessary for correct functioning of your machine, but you need to use small amounts of machine oil and you must first clean your machine thoroughly

Tightening up the screws

One of the easiest sewing machine repairs that you can do at home include tightening its visible bolts and screws. In case of any moving machine, some of its screws will get loose over a period of time, and in many cases it may cause unnecessary rattling in the machine. However, you should avoid over tightening your screws, only until you feel some grip with little resistance.

Allow your sewing machine to cool

Another useful tip that you should keep in mind is that you should never overwork your machine. Continued usage with heavy materials may result in the overheating of the machine, especially when it has not been oiled properly or some fibers are caught in its bobbin. If you smell something burning or if your machine is unusually warm, you should leave it to cool down for an hour or two.

By following all these simple instructions, you can only ensure the hassle free operation of your sewing machine, but can also prolong its life by years. However, if your machine has developed some complex problem, then you may have no alternative but to send it for repair to a reputable technician.
