Spool Pins
Your Platinum 730 has two spool pins.
a main spool pin and an auxilary spool
pin. The spool pins are suitable for all
types of thread. Fold the spool pin out
towards the right. Place the thread spool
on the spool pin so that the thread reels
clockwise. Slide on a spool holder (see
below> and then fold the spool pin hack
to the horizontal poSition.
Main spool pin
Main Spool Pin
l’he main spool pin is adjustable and can he used in a horizontal position (the
thread reels off the stationary spool) or in a vertical position (the thread spool
rotates). There are two spool holders on the spool pin, one large (a) and one small
(b, I)epending on what thread spool size or which spool pin position you are
using, the spool holders are used differently. Use the horizontal position fbr normal
threads and the vertical position for large spools or threads with special character
istics.
Horizontal Position
When using the pin in horizontal posi
tion and with narrow thread spools,
place the large spooi holder (a) under
the thread spool. The small holder (h) is
placed in front of the thread spool.
II
Narrou’ thread spools
If you use large spoois, place the small
spool holder (b) under the thread spool
and the large holder (a) in front of it.
The flat side of the spooi holder shall he
pressed firmly against the spool. There
shall be no space between spool holder
and thread spool.
Vertical Position
To use the spool pin in its vertical posi
tion, fold the spool pin out towards the
right. Slide on the large spool holder
and place a felt pad under the thread
spool. This is to prevent the thread from
reeling off too fast.

sure that the presser foot is raised and
the needle is in the up position.

Needles
l’he sewing machine needle plays an
important role in successful sewing. To
ensure you will get a quality needle,
we recommend needles of system 130/
0SH, The needle package included
with Platinum 73() contains needles
of the most used sizes for sewing in
woven and stretch fabrics.
A Universal Needles
These needles are used for sewing in
all woven fabrics. The needle point
is designed to penetrate between the
threads of the fabric so the fabric will
net be damaged.
A
B
C
a
B Stretch Needles
These needles are used for sewing in
knit and stretch fabrics. The stretch
needle is marked yellow and has a
rounded point.
b
C Jeans Needles
A damaged needle (b can cause skipped
stitches, breakage of needles or Snapping of
thread. A damaged needle can also damage
the needle plate and/or your fabric.
l’hese needles are used for sewing
woven heavy fabrics, for example
denim and canvas fabric. The jeans
needle is marked blue and has an
extremely sharp point to facilitate the
penetrating of the fabric.
Changing the Needle
I
Loosen the screw in the needle
clamp with the screwdriver.
2
Remove the needle.
3
Push the new needle upwards with
the Flat side away from you until it
will go no further.
4

screw properly.

Presser Feet
There are a number of presser feet for
different purposes supplied with your
Platinum 730:
Utility Foot A
Fitted on the sewing machine upon
delivery. This foot is used mainly for
straight stitching and zigzag stitching
with a stitch length longer than 1.0.
Utility Foot B
When sewing close zigzag stitches with
less than 1.0 mm stitch length: other
utility stitches or decorative stitches use
this foot. The tunnel at the bottom of
the foot is designed to feed smoothly
over the stitches.

H.
Li
f1J
Buttonhole Foot C
This buttonhole foot has guide lines
to determine buttonhole length. The
middle mark gives a 9/16’ (15 mm) but
toning edge. The two tunnels on the
bottom of the foot ensures a smooth
feed over the buttonhole columns.
Blind Hem Foot D
This foot is used for blind hem stitches.
The inner edge of this ftot guides
the fabric. The bottom of the foot is
designed to ride along the hem edge.
I ii
LLJ
Zipper Foot E
This is the zipper foot and can he
snapped on either to the right or to the
left of the needle. This makes it easy to
sew on both sides of the zipper.
Teflon Foot H
This foot with a teflon coating under
neath, is used when sewing foam, plas
tic, or leather, minimizing the risk of
these materials sticking to the foot.

a stitch width of 5.0 and 5 mm. Stitches

Sensor Buttonhole Foot
When connected to the machine it gives
a butk)nhole length fitting the button
size that has been entered into the
machine. The middle mark gives a 9/16
(IS mm) buttoning edge.
Read more about di erent optional
pres.cer/et in the Accessory [er Guide.
Changing the Presser Foot
I
2
Make sure that the needle is in the
highest position. Pull the presser
foot towards you.
Line up the cross pin Ofl the foot
with the gap in the presser foot
ankle. Press back until the foot
snaps into place.
Presser Foot Pressure (a)
The presser foot pressure is adjusted
with the dial found under the lid on your
Platinum 30. Normal setting is around
four. The higher the number the more
pressure the foot puts on the fabric.
Knit and soft fabrics should be sewn at
lower pressure.
Presser Foot Lever (b)
The presser foot is raised and lowered
with the presser foot lever. The presser
toot must be lowered when sewing.
By raising the presser foot lever and
then press it upwards, the lift height of
the presser foot can be raised to extra
height in order to slide thick projects
under the foot.

I
Thread Tension
Lse the recommended thread tension
setting given on the InfoDisplay.
You can adjust the top thread tension
for special fabrics and/or techniques. To
adjust, turn the numbered tension dial
(a). The higher the number the higher
the tension. \ormally top thread tension
is set to around 4.
When sewing buttonholes and decorative
stitches set thread tension to around 3.
When topstitching with a coarse thread in
thick fabric, increase the tension to 7-9.
Correct and incorrect thread tension
To understand the correct thread ten
sion, sew a few sample zigzag stitches
at different settings.
I
Begin with a tension that is too
loose. i.e. set at the lowest number.
The bobbin thread will lie straight
and the top thread will be drawn to
the underside of the fabric.
2
If you set the tension at the highest
number, the top thread might break
and the seam may pucker and/or
thread breaks.
3
The correct thread tension is set
when the threads interlock in the
middle of both fabric layers or, in
the case of decorative stitches, on
the underside.
Make a few tests on a scrap piece of the
fabric you are going to sew and check
the tension.
