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.
bulletNOTE: This section does not apply to the CH 1. For CH 1 looper timing, refer to your CH 1 Technical Manual.

Hook Timing

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.

Figure 3-5

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).
