CONNECTING THE MACHINE TO THE POWER SOURCE Caution: Always make sure that the machine is unplugged from power source and the main switch is on "O" when the machine is not in use and before inserting or removing parts. ON OFF Connecting the machine Before connecting the power supply, make sure that the voltage and frequency shown on the machine is conforming with your electrical power. Place machine on a stable surface. 1.
WINDING THE BOBBIN 2 1 3 4 10 Bobbin winding 1 Place the thread and spool holder onto the spool pin. 1 For larger spools of thread, place the large side of the spool holder toward the spool. For smaller spools of thread, place the small side of the spool holder toward the spool, or use the small spool holder. If the thread spool has a thread retaining slit, place this end of the spool toward the right, so the thread doesn't get caught while winding the bobbin.
WINDING THE BOBBIN 6 When the bobbin winder spindle is pushed to the right, which is the "bobbin winding position", the symbol " " appears on the LCD screen. 6 The symbol will disappear from the LCD screen when the bobbin winder spindle is pushed to the left, which is the "sewing position". 7 Hold the thread tail securely in one hand. 7 8 Press the Start/stop button or the foot control. 8 9 After the bobbin has wound a few turns stop the machine and cut the thread near the hole of the bobbin.
INSERTING THE BOBBIN Attention: Turn power switch to off ("O") before inserting or removing the bobbin. When inserting or removing the bobbin, the needle and presser foot must be fully raised. 11 Insert the bobbin in the bobbin case with the thread running in a counterclockwise direction (arrow). 1 22 Pull the thread through the slit (A). A 2 33 With a finger held gently on top of the bobbin. B Draw the thread at the arrow markings into the stitch plate thread guide from (A) to (B).
THREADING THE UPPER THREAD 3 2 1 4 6 5 7 8 Please Note: It is important to carry out the threading correctly as by not doing so several sewing problems could result. Start by raising the needle to its highest point, and also raise the presser foot to release the tension discs. 11 Lift up the spool pin. Place the spool of thread on the spool 1 pin so that the thread comes from the front of the spool, then place the spool cap at the end of the spool pin.
THREADING THE UPPER THREAD 33 Guide the thread around the thread guide pulling the thread through the pre-tension spring as illustrated. 3 44. Thread the tension module by passing the thread between the silver discs. 4 55. Then, down and around the check spring holder. 5 66. At the top of this movement, pass the thread from right to the left through the slotted eye of the take-up lever and then downwards again. 6 77. Pass the thread behind the flat, horizontal thread guide.
USING THE NEEDLE THREADER Attention: Turn power switch to the off position ("O"). Raise the needle to its highest position and lower the presser foot. 11 Lower the needle threader lever slowly and draw the thread through the thread guide as illustrated and then to the right. 1 22 The needle threader automatically turns to the threading position and the hook pin passes through the needle eye. 2 33 Take the thread in front of the needle. 3 44 Hold the thread loosely and release the lever slowly.
DRAWING UP THE LOWER THREAD 11 Hold the upper thread with the left hand. Turn the handwheel towards you (counterclockwise) lowering, then raising the needle. 1 22 Gently pull on the upper thread to bring the bobbin thread up through the needle plate hole. The bobbin thread will come up in a loop. 2 33 Pull both threads to the back under the presser foot. 3 CUTTING THE THREAD Raise the presser foot.

Press the button to start sewing, then press it again to stop sewing. The machine will run slowly at the start of sewing. The speed limiting adjustment lever can control the sewing speed. To increase the sewing speed, slide the lever to the right, To decrease the sewing speed, slide the lever to the left.
THREAD TENSION - Basic thread tension setting is "4". To increase the tension, turn the dial to the next number up. To decrease the tension, turn the dial to the next number down. - Proper setting of tension is important for good sewing. There is no single tension setting appropriate for all the stitch functions and fabrics. However, 90% of all sewing will be between the "3" and "5" ("4" is the basic setting).
CHANGING THE PRESSER FOOT Attention: Turn power switch of off ("O") position when carrying out any of the operations shown below. 1 Attaching the presser foot holder a Raise the presser foot bar (a) by raising the presser foot lifter.
