Clockwise increases lubrication.
Here is the manual.. http://www.pdftop.com/view/aHR0cDovL...51Ym9vay5wZGY=
"NOTE" that in the manual it tells when timing needle & hook turn the wheel towards you until 2.5 mm from lowest point. It needs to be 2.5mm but You must bring the needle all the way down first then go up to 2.5mm to the lowest point.
Probably a good idea to take it in and have it gone over at least once. I didnt and through frustration of constantly breaking threads I finally figured out I needed a new hook.
One problem I am having now is breaking threads instantly and bunching them up like crazy under fabric. on reverse stitch even after re timing. I'm about to go over it again and replace needle, check timing, and thread tension but I don't think that is going to fix it. Other then the reverse breaking threads the thing sews perfect.
