I got a serger about 5 years ago, used it a few times, and then stopped sewing for a while. I pulled it out tonight to work on something for a swap, and it seems that one of the spindles that hold the spools of thread on has snapped off. It is the second spindle from the left. Does anyone know if this is something that can be replaced or fixed? I am pretty sure I can't sew without it.

It is also really dirty (it was in the basement in the last house we lived in, and the basement flooded, so I think that it was accidentally broken by the people our landlord hired to move all our stuff out of the basement into the garage, and it probably got dirty being stored in the garage). I am going to either have to do a good cleaning or take it in to have it cleaned, so I could ask about it if I take it in, but if it can't be fixed I am not going to waste my money on getting it cleaned. If it can be fixed and it is something I can do myself I don't want to get snookered into paying for someone else to do it.


FH says if it can't be fixed we will replace it, which is really sweet, but I don't want to do that if it's not necessary.

Try searching the Internet for your model's parts. There might be someone or a company that sells parts. Or take it to a sewing machine repair shop. Since it's been sitting in a basement and is dirty, you might need a tune-up anyway. Good luck!

Thanks! Luckily I think I can use it to do a one needle, three thread overlock (provided it's not too grimey to work...) until I can try one of those out.

I will definitely bring it in to get it tuned up/cleaned soon! Smiley
