What wonderful answers to "WHAT THIS IS"
I have never in my whole life seen this in a machine. I always thought it was a fuzz in my machine and have tried for a long time to get it out.
Friday night I was having trouble with my machine thread and figured this fuzz was the reason.
Turned off my machine
Tried different methods.
Then out it came....AHHHHH
why was my heart beating like I did something wrong?
I emailed a few people and they had no clue
So the next morning I called a Pfaff dealership.
All I can say is OOOOPPPPPSSS
and are you kidding me...that is suppose to be in my machine???
IT IS A LINT CATCHER!!!!
Well...I ain't neber!!!!
She said to bring it in to her and she would put it back in....that I should not be operating the machine without it.
WHAT!!!! She is over an hour away.
I don't know how much she was going to charge me but...she wanted 119.00 to 150.00 to clean the machine and she could not guarantee when I could get it back.
Me without my machine is me without chocolate. Yes, I do have my embroidery machine that sews......but this is my machine. Oh well...some of you will understand and well..some of you will just roll your eyes.
I am thinking.
I can put it back in
How hard would it be...right????
Get a few tools....don't work (what do I know about tools?)
So....I bat my eyelashes at my husband and what do you know....
He is enlisted in my dirty detail. Not too happy about it but enlisted non the less.
He finds the right tool and hands it to me.
I am shocked.
He wanted me to open this machine...my heart is racing a mile a minute.
Thoughts like.....what if I break it?
What if I touch the wrong thing and mess it all up?
A ton of "What ifs"
So....bat my eyelashes a little more, do a little whinning
and the man is enlisted again.
Once again he is not happy but at least he is taking screws out with my help of course....(smiling here)
Once we get the top open. He leaves me.....WHAT!!!!!
Oh well....so I look inside, start cleaning with my little brush.
Decide where this little lint catcher was (there are tell tell signs everywhere...you see lint fragments from me ripping it out...ooopsss). You all understand....I was a gal on a mission and was not going to stop until succeeded. Oh well..that is water under the bridge.
Get some gorrilla glue. First I fit it in there to see how it goes. Then I get the glue...this puppy is not going anywhere.
After much fanagaling it is in....I pat it down with my tweezers (trust me this is not an easy space to work in). Wait a few minutes to see if it will stay....take a few up and down motions with the needle.... It is still engaged....
Oil the machine.
Close the lid and put the screws back in.
We are back in business!!!!
So Ladies and Gents....if you see this in your machine pfaff creative vision 4.0 DO NOT...I REPEAT...DO NOT PULL IT OUT!!!
