Need to get needle that I dropped into the sewing machine shaft.

I was trying to change the needle in my machine this afternoon and I let it slip away and it fell straight down into the machine. Now I can't get it out. What can I do to retrieve it please. Thanks for your help.

Hi there,
If you don't want to take it to a "repairer" then I would suggest that you remove the screws and open up the machine to retrieve the needle. Just be mindful of where you removed the screws from i.e. the size as there may be several different sizes.

Singer 3820 machine - not used much has suddenly decided that it will not disengage the sewing foot when I try to wind a bobbin?


If your bobbin winder is still working, but the needle is going up and down, I would ignore it--it won't hurt. It engages and disengages by a clutch, and sometimes it slips. I would make sure, though, that whatever controls your buttonhole operation and/or twin needle operation is not slightly engaged. That's different on different machines; sometimes it's a lever you pull down, a button or a dial, or a combination, but just make sure that your machine is set on straight or zigzag sewing, not a special operation.

The thread keeps on snapping when i sew straight stitch?


try changing the needle
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of your sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the needle clamp screw to remove the old needle.
Place the new needle in the needle clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back, (round needle, the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft).
Push the needle all the way up as far as it will go. Then tighten the needle clamp screw.

try adjusting the top thread tension-to see if the tension is too tight
rethread the machine--top & bobbin just in case the thread is caught some where
check to make sure there aren't any burrs on the needle plate

When it changes from straight stitch to sepintine and back to straight it skips lots of stitches. Just paid $300 for a new shaft.


try these suggestions & see if they help

Sewing machine skips stitches
1.needle inserted incorrectly--flat side of the needle faces the shaft
round needle--groove of needle faces away from the shaft
2.Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the needle. Place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back of the machine.
If round needle--the groove in the needle faces away from the shaft
Push needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go.
3.possible bent needle--lay needle on flat surface & roll needle over, if the needle does not roll good -replace
4.blunt needle point--needle makes a popping sound when needle penetrates the fabric--replace needle
5.needle not all the way up in needle holder--loosen needle clamp screw & push the needle up until it stops then tighten screw
6.incorrect threading--one step missed in sequence of threading can cause machine to skip stitches
7.wrong needle in machine--check instruction manual--some machines can use a generic needle with no problem--some can't--
8.size of needle & thread not compatible--
Using the wrong type needle can cause problems,,
A needle to fine for heavy fabric can bend or break when it hit's the fabric
And a too large needle can make puncture holes in the fabric and pull unevenly while stitching

Don't know how to thread Pixie by Singer sewing machine. I tried following the instructions but this has not gotten me very far seeing as I am not familiar with any of the terms used in the manual.


try this site, I copied the instructions, but could not get the picture. when you get to te site i put dpxie in and search, on page 11 is the picture of the threading,

from the thread spool bring thread to the left, under the plate and up through the ****, around the round flat disk, then down the front of the machine (looks like a split in the machine) thread goes in this and around the u-turn (picture of a line that looks like a u-turn) an back up the opening opposite the first one. bring thread through hole in the metal loop, bring thread back down to needle area. there may be one or two places to loop thread behind hooks to keep the thread straight then through the needle from the front to the back.
(in the needle area DO NOT WRAP the thread around the hooks, the thread should just rest behind them to keep the thread straight to the needle)


http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html



1. Set the Power Off/Speed Switch to the OFF position.
2. Raise the presser foot lifter.
3. Turn the handwheel counter-clockwise until the needle is in its highest position.
4. Set the thread spool on the spool pin.
5. Bring the thread under the thread guide slot at the top of the machine and then slip it into the tension disk (1). Pass the thread into the tension disk, making sure it slips into the disk securely.
6. Bring the thread down, go around the U-turn (2), then bring it back up.
7. Pass the thread through the eye of the take-up lever, from right to left (3).
8. Bring the thread back down and thread the guide which is just above and to the right of the needle(4).
9. Thread the needle from front to back (5).

ZIG-ZAG NOT WORKING


Make sure your presser foot is tight down. If the needle is going from side to side, it's doing it's job. If the stitches are coming out straight, the material is probably slipping back and forth to center area. The presser will eliminate this.

My needle broke and a piece of metal fell out of machine


this sounds like the needle guard it is usually held on by the same screw that holds the needle clamp it should fit so that it comes across the needle at the front to stop your fingers being sown but not interfere with the needle try turning by hand before turning back on.

Threading with the auto cartridge


make sure that the thread is snug...do you have the thread cap on? I've had this problem and it is usually corrected if the thread doesn't have any play inside of the cassette.

My needle broke and a piece of metal fell out of machine


Totally happened to me last week. I discovered that the metal piece that fell off and holds the needle has a small screw that holds it in place. It needs an Allen wrench (tiny one) to tighten it back into place. I just lucked into figuring it out.
