Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for all that info.

This means there is a part that either broke off inside or the collar has become loose.

If you are handy and have the tools for this I can help you take it apart and fix this.

But if not, you can have this fixed by a local repairman.

Most Vacuum shops also fix sewing machines, this one is an easy fix for someone who has experience also it is NOT an expensive repair at all ;-)

Please let me know how you wish to proceed?

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate kindly thus far, it won't cost you anything to rate my service to you kindly,
