Are you going to answer me?
Expert:  Michael replied 10 months ago.

you have already paid for the best info I can provide and I have been a sewing machine technician for over 35 years.

I asked you some questions that I would require an answer to to help you with this one.

As for this machine, I can tell you that if you are not a sewing machine tech, you would need special gauges and info privy only to those techs for time such a machine.

If you are not a tech you would need to take that to most any vacuum cleaner repair shop, they fix sewing machines as well in most cases;-)

I wish I had better news for you I really do but these are complicated precision machines that require experience to time and to repair them.
