QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
If my lever will not go up vertically, what could be causing it?
More than likely, it is being blocked by the small rubber insert we attach to the inside of the meter. Sometiems this ca fal off or dislodge from the side of the housing. In which case the metal lever may hit it.
This small part is inserted by NKK to prevent the yarn from jamming which can occur in rare occasions.
The rubber insert has adhesive on one side and that side is pressed against the housing. It should not be blocking the opening were the yarn comes through.
This part can be removed if it is causing an issue of any type.
It is absolutely necessary that the lever fit properly (the level must stick straight up when closed) or possibly the yarn will not be held down.
In a pinch, you can try to bend the bar on the lever slightly to clear the rubber part. Just be careful not to have the bar break off of the part it is connected to.
