Cleaning Upper Thread Path / Multi-Needle-Machine
Just like lampshades and overhead fans at home, your multi-needle machine deserves to be dust-free. It will sparkle and perform at its very best if you keep the upper thread path clean. Set aside 45 minutes to an hour to give it the full spa treatment.
Start by unthreading all ten needles. Slip the bristles of the small brush that comes with your machine under the upper thread guide to remove any lint. Clean the thread guide behind the tension discs.
Add the plastic base, spring and tension dial. Turn the dial clockwise to tighten. Repeat for all ten needles. After you’ve cleaned each tension disk, stitch the tension test design to critique the tension on each needle. Make any necessary adjustments.
