< Note > 

When replacing the needle, be sure to turn off the 

machine.  A clutch motor continues running for a while 

after the machine is turned off.  Therefore keep on 

pressing the pedal until the machine stops.

Maximum speed : 3,500 rpm 
Standard speed   : 3,000 rpm   

To extend machine life, run the machine 
approximately 15~20% below the maximum speed 
for the first 200 hours of operation (approx. 1 
month).  Then run the machine at the standard 
speed. 
The machine pulley turns counterclockwise as 
seen from the end of the machine pulley (see the

the oil level is at the top line (see H in the 
illustration) on oil gauge C. 
After the first lubrication, add oil so that the oil 
level will be between H and L. 
After filling the machine with oil, tighten plug A 
and run the machine to check the oil is splashing 
from    oil pipe outlet B.

To extend machine life, be sure to replace the oil after the first 250 hours of operation. 
To replace the oil, follow the procedures below. 

1.  Remove the V belt from the motor pulley and then remove the machine from the 

table. 

2.  Remove screw D and then drain the oil. 

Be careful not to stain V belt with the oil. 

3.  After draining the oil, be sure to tighten screw D. 
4.  Fill the machine with oil by referring to 3-2 shown above. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

If filter element E is contaminated, proper oiling may not be performed. 
Clean the filter element every six months.  If just a little or no oil flows out from the 
nozzle with the proper amount of oil in the machine, check the filter element. 
To clean the filter element, remove oil reservoir.

Needle drop and needle side stroke    

The needle side stroke on this machine is 5.55mm (302-4W) and 7.4mm (302-5W). 
To increase the stroke, loosen screw B and move it up in the slot.    To decrease the stroke, 
loosen screw B and move it down in the slot.    The point of the needle should be centered 
left to right between fingers of the needle plate when the needle drops to the needle plate. 
Adjustment is made by loosening screw C.  The needle side stroke movement should 
start when the point of the needle moves up from the top surface of the needle plate. 
The needle side stroke movement should stop when the point of the needle reaches the top 
surface of the needle plate.    This timing adjustment is made by worm gear D.    To adjust 
the position of the needle drop, loosen screws A and turn the needle bar as required.

4 Eccentric for adjusting the looper left to right    

To adjust the position of the eccentric, loosen screws D. 
Align the screw which comes second in the turning 
direction of the eccentric with the mark on the shaft. 
Then tighten screws D temporarily.  Then make a 
fine adjustment so that the looper shaft can reach the 
extreme right end of its travel while the needle is at 
the bottom of its stroke with position 4.  After this 
adjustment, tighten the screws securely.  For 
PX302-5W, adjust each looper shaft to come the same 
position while the needle is at the bottom of its stroke with position 3 and position 7.

The setting distances of the looper with the needle at 
position 4 and position 1 should be equal (5.5mm) (For 
PX302-5W, the needle at position 1 and position 5) (see 
5-2).  To achieve this adjustment, loosen screw A to 
loosen the collar.    Loosen screws B and C. 
Then adjust looper rocker D and lever E. 

■ 

Example 

If the setting distance with the needle at position 1 is 5mm and the setting distance with 
the needle at position 4 is 6mm, move looper rocker D approximately 1mm to right.  
After the adjustment is made, tighten screws B and C securely.  Then tighten screw A 
with the collar fitted onto looper rocker D.

This adjustment should be made when the needle is 
at position 1 (see 5-2).  When the point of the 
looper, moving to the left, has reached the left side 
of the needle, it should be 1mm above the top of the 
needle's eye.    When the point of the looper, moving 
to the right, has reached the left side of the needle, 
it should be 0.2mm above the top of the needle's 
eye. 
The looper moves 0.8mm faster than the needle (see 
the illustration on the right). 
For PX302-5W when the needle is at position 2. 

 

Adjustment is made by loosening three screws F. 
After the adjustment, tighten these three screws 
equally.

Check to see if the surface of the spring touches the 
looper closely at least on points C within the range of 
B. 
Spun thread #60 should be removed from the spring at 
approximately 80~100g of tension.

ADJUSTING THE NEEDLE GUARD   

 

This adjustment should be made when the needle is at 
position 4 (see 5-2).  When the point of the looper, 
moving to the left, has reached the right side of the 
needle, line A on the needle guard should be 
0.3~0.5mm above the point of the needle (see the 
illustration on the right).  Then the needle must 
slightly touch the needle guard.    Adjustment is made 
by loosening screw B.

fabric or thread to be used by loosening screws B. 
To increase the amount of the thread to be supplied, 
move the eyelets backward.  To decrease the

CLEANING THE MACHINE   

 

At the end of each day, remove the presser 
foot and the needle plate and then clean the 
slots of the needle plate and the area around 
the feed dogs.
