I was overlocking away and I think I might have hit a hidden pin. I'm not sure. The machine started 'clacking' and one of the needles broke. I replaced both needles but every time I go to use the machine there is a a clacking noise and it breaks the threads in both needles. I find that if I disengage the knife completely, the 'clacking' stops.

Is there anything I should/could check before I try and take this machine to a repairman. I am in a panic because I am in the middle of a Xmas project and have no idea where in Mexico City I could find someone to repair this before Xmas.

Thanks for any help.

I would think that the knives have been affected or even damaged by cutting into the pin. I would first check if the knives are still in place properly then check to see if there is damage to the blades.
Hope this helps.

After my initial panic, I saw that the upper knife was broken. The top 'hook' had completely broken off. When the stump lowered, it was hitting the underside of the plate. I went and bought a new one $30 in Mexico City. Easily installed myself and everything is working fine. They didn't have the lower knife. But, I only have a little 'prick' on the edge. Nothing too serious. It seems to be working fine. The next time I am in the states, I'll pick up some extras if I can find them cheap. Thanks for the response. I appreciate the time you took. Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to all the Craftsters here. Smiley

No problem Raul. That is what Craftster is all about.
I'd be very careful with the lower knife til you can get a replacement so it doesn't cause any damage to your fabric or the machine.
A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too!
