How do I set the bobbin ?
Use a bobbin thread that has been correctly wound. Otherwise, the needle may break or the thread tension will be incorrect.
The included bobbin was designed specifically for this sewing machine. If bobbins from other models are used, the machine will not operate correctly. Use only the included bobbin or bobbins of the same type (part code: SA156, (SFB: XA5539-151)).
