    IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

    Before connecting machine, be sure that the voltage on the AC adapter matches your electrical supply.

    Always disconnect the foot switch or AC adapter when changing needles, removing the bobbin, or cleaning the machine.

    Always disconnect the AC adapter whenever machine is unattended.

    Work carefully and watch the sewing area to avoid the needle during operation.

    Do not pull the fabric while mending as the needle may bend and break or cause other damage

    Check that the machine is threaded carefully before mending.

    The bobbin case tension is Pre-set at the factory and cannot be adjusted.

    If the thread gathers underneath the material, this indicates that the tension needs to be increased e.g., for cotton material the tension should be tightened as far as it will go then turned anti-clockwise 2 and a half turns.

    Please avoid sideways pressure on the needle when sewing around corners as this could cause the machine to jam and render it inoperative.

    Screw head should line up with seam inplastic casing of machine and bobbin caseshould move back and forth slightly (about1/16'') when handwheel is turned. If not,refer to page 17 for repositioning instruc-tions.

    3. Remove empty bobbin from bobbin case.The seam ripper may make removal easi-er.

    Place bobbin on bobbin winder, aligninghole in bobbin with driving pin on bobbinwinder. You may have to turn the handwheelto help locate the driving pin.
