Thread Holder won't go down

The thread holder won't go down all the way. I had a needle break and I replaced it. The next day as I was sewing the machine would stop and chatter. I had to move the needle manually, and I could sew again for a little and it would do it again. Then the needle broke, I replaced it again and I took the spool of thread out, after I put it back, it just would not go down all the way.

I did fix it but I have no idea how. I didn't want to have to pay for an answer. If it happens again I'll just keep looking on the Internet until I find an answer for free, but thanks anyway. I know right now everyone is looking to make a dollar and everything is going up BUT my husbands pay. We can't pass it on to someone else every time we need money so the little things have to get cut out.

I can't seem to get the bobbin holder in there correctly to get the machine to sew properly.


While I know it can only go in 1 of two ways, maybe the problem isn't in how the bobbin is in, maybe it is the route of the thread.
My assumption is you don't seem to pick up the bobbin thread and it bunches. If so the carefully follow the thread to needle you may have by passed the place you put that thread so it maintains tension.
Check that carefully, sometimes that gets overlooked.

Needle won't pick up bobbin thread


check to make sure that the needle was put into the needle holder correctly
all the way up into the needle holder--flat side of the needle to the back side of the machine
if the machine still doesn't up the bobbin thread then
it's possible that when the needle broke that it caused the machine to go out of time which means it has to be retime at a sewing machine shop

If you can hear a click then I'd say the needle is touching some part of the hook mechanics which could mean timing is out. However, it is possible that the bobbin case has just moved a little so as first trouble shooting steps, I'd suggest the following:

clean out the bobbin holder area as per manual (ie. remove the needle plate, bobbin, sewing foot and needle, take out the bobbin holder, clean the race area out, then put bobbin holder back in as per your manual, there is usually a stopper and knob or two red marks to line up. This is held by a magnet so it is possible to knock it out of place during a jam up.

Replace needle plate, bobbin, sewing foot and put in a new sharp needle, flat shank to the back and make sure it is fully up into the holder, thread up and very slowly using the needle up and down button, test sew a couple of stitches again.

If no stitch formation or you can definitely hear/see something touching then I'd say timing is out and no, its not something fixed yourself; best left to a trained technician.

Sew Cute SC20 Mechanical Sewing Machine: how to thread sew cute machine ...


Place the origin bobbin thread so the thread is coming up (clockwise) extend to the thread tention, to the top thread holder, then down through the arm and then through the bottom thread holder, through the square thread guide above the needle, then through the needle, front to back. Check out a picture on ebay or amazon. That could help you visualize it.
If you are having trouble with the thread breaking, try changing the thread on the bobbins. The thread that comes with the machine is poor quality and jams & breaks. If you still have trouble, and might suspect the needle is dull or bent. Change it, it makes a difference. I had the thread problem with the machine right out of the box. Changed it and it works great!

How to thread bicor vx 1005 sewing machine?


Most older machines start the thread from the spool on a spool holder then the thread goes through a tension dial, on to another tension holder inside the case. Then make sure the thread is going through a lever that goes up and down with the needle, through a thread holder near the needle.

Bobbin holder won't stay put


If the bobbin case/holder is trying to lift up and the thread is staying partly around it, your bobbin case may have turned part way.
Remove the needle plate and the bobbin case. The outer edges of the bobbin case should be very smooth. I suspect you may see a needle hole in the flat area that was under the foot. If so, you will probably wish to take it to your dealer and show them. They may smooth it or recommend replacing it. When the bobbin case is placed back into the hook cup that it sets in, the retainer at the 11 o'clock position on it should only allow the case to lift up about 0.8 to 1mm at the most. If it will lift up more than this, press down firmly on the retainer and move it closer to the bobbin case. You must have enough room for the thread to pass between the retainer and the bobbin case, but too much clearance will allow the bobbin case to turn in the machine and it will be damaged by the needle.
