Tread getting hung up in the shuttle

I just took my new machine out of the case and i have yeet to be able to sew a line without the thread getting hung up in the shuttle. I have taken it apart and replaced it at least a half a dozen times. What do I need to do? I have a necchi model 215a-b-bs and I have been unable to sew as when I do it seems to not run the bobbin thread through properly and I end up with at least 10 threads caught at the bottom so the tention is too tight to continue. I believe the problem is in the bobbin compartment as the thread gets caught up there. I have changed the bobbin and I have oiled the compartment with no luck

    I have the same problem. I took it in for repair, they said the timing was off and wanted $200 to repair. I am looking for a solution. The top thread seems to be threaded correctly.

HI!

In most cases when thread is nesting, bunching, ect..it is a result of top threading. Be sure that you have the thread through the proper threading guides,most importantly, the "take-up lever" (that is the silver hook that moves up and doen in time with the needle). This should resolve the problem regardless of the machine.

MY THREAD GETTING WRAPPED AROUND THE BOBBING WHEN TRYING TO SEW THE TOP THREAD WRAPPING AROUND THE BOBBING CASE AND DRAGGING CAUSING THE TOP THREAD TO BREAK ?


It sounds like the lower shuttle is out of place. You should be able to take out the bobbin case and unlatch the shuttle. It will probably be in 2 pieces. Clean out the dust behind it and replace the shuttle pieces. You may have to fiddle with it a little to get them back in place. Then you can test it by manually turning the wheel. Make sure the bobbin is placed into the bobbin case and that the bobbin turns in the direction that you pull the thread.

Good luck.

Upper line tension too loose


Tangling on the bottom of the cloth is always caused by one of these:

Upper thread is not threaded correctly.
Upper thread tension is too loose.
Using too thick thread.

Sometimes caused by:
Damaged plastic bobbin case

Rarely caused by:
Shuttle out of time
Burr on the shuttle

It is NEVER caused by the bobbin tension, so don't touch it.

Hand wheel doesn't turning, the bobbin case is blocked


You have what is called a thread lock. Turning hand wheel backwards and may release it if not remove bobbin case from shuttle, release shuttle arms, pull off race cover and remove thread then re assemble, problem should be solved. You may refer to you instruction book as it will explain the procedure.

Thread in bobbin keeps getting caught. I'm doing something wrong putting it in.


Hello

The bobbin case is not properly installed.

Remove the bobbin case and make sure the thread from the bobbin is feeding from the spool in a clock wise direction and through the guide on the side of the bobbin case.

Raise the needle to it's highest position and this will move the shuttle to it's proper position.

Lift the lever on the back of the bobbin case, with the arm on the case pointing toward the ceiling and slip into the shuttle.

Bend your head down and you will see the shuttle has a slot for the arm to fit into.

Once you get the feel for this you will not have to bend down for a bird's eye view!

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up. Make sure the threading sequence is correct and the thread has not slipped out of the take up lever.

Hold onto the top thead end and lower then raise the needle to pull up the bobbin thread. Pull both threads under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

You should now be able to sew without any issues.

You can get a manual from Brother (free download). Refer to the maintenance section for cleaning and removal of the shuttle parts for lubrication, if required for the model you are using.

The needle thread keeps getting caught as the bobbin thread is brought up initially and again as I sew. It has been looked at by repairmen but no solution has been found. Should I replace the bobbin...


Hello

The bobbin might not be in the case just right, or the case not in the machine just right.

Remove the bobbin case and make sure the thread from the bobbin is feeding from the spool in a clock wise direction and through the guide on the side of the bobbin case.

Raise the needle to it's highest position and this will move the shuttle to it's proper position.

Lift the lever on the back of the bobbin case, with the arm on the case pointing toward the ceiling and slip into the shuttle.

I just got a new Singer Simple. I had a problem with the needle thread getting caught in the bobbin shuttle. I disassembled this area, found a random thread, and cleaned it out. I put it all back together...


Do you have the bobbin thread going the right way, according to owners manual some go clock wise some go counter clock wise when you pull the thread after bobbin inserted in bobbin case

Why does the shuttle hook grab the spool thread instead of the bobbin thread? It wraps the thread around the bobbin and binds the machine up.


The shuttle hook is suppose to hook the needle (spool) thread and loops it around the bobbin case to form the lock stitch. Is it possible that something was adjusted without proper clearances as to allow the thread looping around the bobbin case to do so without catching up where it should pass through freely?

Can't put back the bobbin case in a singer 7442, it get sotck


Put the bobbin into the case so the thread is feeding clock wise and through the guide on the case.

Lift the lever to hold the bobbin in place.

Insert the bobbin case into the race/shuttle, still holding the lever out.

Align the finger on the bobbin case with the opening in the race/shuttle.

You may have to turn the bobbin case a bit to the left or right for it to line up.

Once it clicks into place it should work without any further problems.

Singer Model 5050 Timing Problem


Actually,timing of needle vs, shuttle is not very easy job several factor you should check on.There is belt ot sometime a shafting with worm gear and helical gear under machine w/c drive the shuttle with the bobbins in timing order,Any one of them is present on the timing adjustment can be done by releasing the belt or the helical gear,besure machine is unplug then set all mechanism on low dead center meaning the needle move to utmost lower position catching this by the shuttle and bobbins at center position.No motion applied if this was set up,engage the belt with pulley and the bobbins link holder tigh allenscrew besure the needle is lower dead center at the center of shullle bobbins catching needle without motion when setting back at original position.If this was made manually move it on handwheel going up and side down the needle gradually if the needle move freely several time and it was catching this by the shuttle hook bobbins.if ok put thread bobbins and upper thread dial tension with the needle.Move machine on handwheel try to catch the bobbins thread,If this so your machine is ready to sew again if problem occurs on alignment repeat adjustment on perpect alignment,besure all parts on upper casing of machine specially two drive gear are in normal alignment.
