Sewing machine (YAMATA - G 3 8500)
« on: April 03, 2010, 07:20:14 PM »
A friend has one of these, and just broke a needle.  (can't find the small broken piece) and the bobbin holder is jammed.  I can't see how it is supposed to work.  clearly the unit is mounted to the shaft, but there is a tang that holds it from turning, and I cannot see how part can turn, and part be held by the tang.  (and at the moment it is jammed, and won't turn).  (We didn't get a shop manual with it, and I'm not sure I could handle the problem if we did.  She did get a repair contract, so maybe we will have to ship it....)  can you help with a blown up diagram of that corner of the machine???
