Hi, good morning,

The best thing to do for this machine is take it to a local Vacuum cleaner repair shop, most of them also make repairs on sewing machines;-)

They can source the part for you and replace cam and worm drive easily.

This part is extremely difficult to get on your own if you are not a sewing machine technical unfortunately as they don't typically sell this to the end user.

I would check locally for a shop near you for this operation for many other reasons as well;-)

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

Please rate my service kindly.

Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.

Once you rate, I will be notified and will add your question to my priority list so you can reach me anytime until this problem is solved.

Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.

Thank you and have a great day!
