How to Remove Burrs

Your sewing machine can be precisely timed and adjusted according to the manufactures specifications and still produce loops, uneven stitches or break thread. A likely culprit, burrs. Burrs are very common on sewing machine parts where the needle passes through or in close proximity to such parts as pressure foot, needle hole plate and sewing hook. The thread takes the same path as the needle and if burrs do exist on these parts it's a good chance the thread will snag or break.

When you are performing operator maintenance
look for the possibility of burrs on any parts.
There is no best tool for removing burrs rather
a combination of several, since the parts are
shaped differently. To help remove burrs use
strips of crocus cloth, abrasive cord, fine needle
point file or high speed rotary tool with various
polishing and grinding bits.

See Operators Maintenance Kit below.

It's important to note if these parts are damaged beyond removing the burrs they will need to be replaced.

If you are not comfortable performing this or any adjustment take your machine and control to your local dealer.
