Needle precautions

Be sure to observe the following precautions concerning the correct choice of needle for your machine.
• Your machine is designed to use household embroidery needles. The factory recommended needle is "HAX
130 EBBR" (Organ). Schmetz needles 130/705 H-E may be used as a substitute. Use of any other needles
may break the needle or thread or damage the needle-threading mechanism or result in injuries.
• Never use bent needles. Bent needles can easily break, possibly resulting in injuries.

Checking the needle

Sewing with a bent needle is extremely dangerous since the needle may break while the machine is
operating.
Place the flat side of the needle on a flat surface and check that the distance between the needle and the
flat surface is even. If the needle is bent or the tip of the needle is broken, replace the needle with a new
one. (Refer to "Changing the Needle" on page 86.)

Bobbin precautions

Be sure to observe the following precautions concerning the bobbin.
• Only use prewound bobbin (COATS "L" type/TRU-SEW POLYESTER
"Filaments") or bobbins designed specifically for this machine. Use of any other
bobbin may result in injuries or damage to the machine.
• Use a bobbin thread that has been correctly wound, otherwise the needle may
break or the thread tension will be incorrect.
• When winding a bobbin, only use optional bobbin winder (refer to page 279) and metal bobbins (Part
code: 100376-053).
• When winding the bobbin, be sure to use cotton or spun polyester bobbin thread (between 74 dtex/2 and
100 dtex/2).
