Regular adjustments will prolong the life of any embroidery peripheral, as
well as also minimize down-time and lost production time. A properly adjusted
machine will perform better, last longer, and help to create a higher-quality
product. To maintain the machine's operating condition, certain adjustments
must be performed on a regular basis.
For further information on adjustments and repairs that are not covered in
this manual, consult your particular machine's technical manual or call your
local area service representative for advice.

The Hook Timing adjustment should not change when adjusting the needle
depth position, but it would be a good idea to check it and make sure. Figures
3-5 and 3-6 show the proper hook/needle relationship.
The hook point is not fully drawn in Figure 3-6, but its position is
indicated. In order for the hook point to catch the loop of thread, it must
pass through the needle scarf area approximately 1/8" (3.2mm) above the
eye, when the needle has risen 3/32" (2.4mm).
