6-15. Adjusting the treadle
6-16. Adjusting the presser foot floating amount (minute lifting amount)
<Forward depression sensitivity adjustment>
If the machine starts running at low speed when your foot is
simply resting on the treadle, or if the treadle pressure is felt
to be too weak, adjust the position (a to c) at which the
treadle spring (1) is hooked onto the treadle lever (2).
* a is the weakest position, and it becomes gradually
stronger at b and c respectively.
<Backward depression sensitivity adjustment>
1. Loosen the nut (3) and turn the bolt (4).
* When the bolt (4) is tightened, the treadle operation
2. Tighten the nut (3).
Adjusting the treadle stroke
Remove the nut (5), and then move the connecting rod joint

The treadle stroke will then be increased by approximately
At this time, the treadle forward and backward depression
sensitivity will change, so readjust if necessary.
When sewing stretch materials and materials with long pile,
you can make minute adjustments to the floating amount for
the presser foot (1) in accordance with the material.
1. Turn the sewing machine pulley by hand to move the feed
dog (2) below the needle plate (3).
2. Use the lifting lever to lower the presser foot (1).
3. Loosen the nut (4).
4. Use a hexagon wrench to turn the adjusting screw (5) to
adjust the floating amount.

operation becomes lighter.
Turn the adjusting screw (5) clockwise.
Turn the adjusting screw (5) counterclockwise.
