    I would not recommend ever using steel wool on your machine for any reason. Better to take it to a repair shop. A little bit of money spent can save a lot later.

    I enjoyed this video with all its good advice and tips. Thanks, Jessica, for your clear explanations! One thing I wanted to mention is about the replacement light bulb in the universal machine maintenance kit. Most machine light bulbs are either screw-in or snap-in. Check to make sure the light bulb in this kit matches the one in your machine. Ask me how I know about this!

    Thank you very much for your reply, I cleaned the machine and changed the tension of the upper thread. I will adjust the tension on the bobbin. And change my needle again. Hope that will help me ..... Thank you, Topaz. * By the way, I really love your videos. Are flowing, clear and teaching. *

    Question, Why the tension between the Bobin to the upper thread constantly loosens and the stitches are unsuccessful ? Waiting for an answer urgently, Thanks, Topaz.
