    I v just really thorougly cleanedmy machine, however it is no way to open to front panel where the threading is done and that bugs be cause i ms ure there are lots of dirt there................

    anyway i did put all my screws very nicely on a plate next to me so they wouldnt get lost but ofcourse now i cant find the one i need(there is 2 in total) to fasten the metal plate thingy where the needle action is sooooooooooooo where do i get a new one :oops:

    i m really annoyd now cause i wanted to sew more but i dont dare sewing a thing before all the screws are fasten and in place.
    I honestly dont think its any loose screws inside the machine, the only loose ones i know for sure about is the ones in my head :mrgreen:

    Check a sewing machine repair shop. They'll have all the little screws.

    I picked up a sewing machine for my 10yo daughter at a yard sale. It was missing the thread tension spring and screw. I bought both (instead of a whole new bobbing case) for $2.50. The case would have cost me between 10 and 20 and since I wasn't even sure if the machine worked well or not, I thought I'd give this a try. BYW...she's sewing on the machine.

    I did the same thing. I have made 5 tops and FMQuilted 2 with only one plate screw. It does make it louder. But, no other problems. There is not repairman in town. So, one screw it is.

    :lol: Thanks, but, surely I will eventually find one in the U.S.
    I really would like to know how those screws just got up and walked away.

    Some older machines have extra holes where you can put attachments. I'm wondering if you put a screw where there wasn't one before.

    This sounds like something I would do. Isn't it frustrating.
