Is your needle new? The needle needs to be replaced every 8 hours on a regular sewing machine, and the ULT benefits from even more frequent changes. Also try a bigger needle, if you're using a 75/11 move to a 90/14, make sure your needle matches what you're doing, you might not think those little needle tips differ much but they really do.

The manual also mentions if there is to much lint under the needle plate. Keep in mind all sewing machines need the bobbin area cleaned out every time you change the bobbin, but the ULT likes cleaning up down there about twice as often.

My pfaff hobbymatic 875 is skipping thread on the bobbin side


Be sure to use a brand new needle. If the needle is bent or damaged, it will frequently skip stitches. Also, if you are using the incorrect needle for the fabric & thread you are using, it will skip stitches, ie a ball point needle on woven fabric.

Why does my Empisal sewing machine miss stitches , sew, miss, sew?


Skipped stitches
1. The needle is not inserted correctly
Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)
2. The needle is damaged
replace with new needle
3. The wrong size needle is being used
Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric
4. The foot not attached correctly
Check & attach correctly
5. If the above suggestions don't help then the machine needs to be checked
For a timing problem,, the feeddogs may need to be checked to see why they are not moving the fabric thru the machine.

Skipping stitches


Skipped stitches
1. A bent or dull needle
2. The wrong needle for your fabric
knit fabrics require a jersey or ballpoint tip. Most wovens do well with a universal tip, and specialty fibers, like leather or metallic, usually require specific needles.
3. Incorrect machine threading
4. Unbalanced needle thread tension
Start by making relatively small changes and run a test stitch to evaluate the impact. If you need to adjust the tension dial using woven cotton fabric with good quality all-purpose thread and a new needle
5.check the needle is inserted correctly. The needle needs to be pushed as far up the needle shaft as possible. It's easy to insert the needle half way, clamp it down and think it is inserted correctly.
the flat part of the needle should be positioned towards the back. If the needle is not inserted correctly, it will not be able to pull up the bobbin thread and will cause skipped stitches.
6. If the suggestions don't help then it is time for a tune-up.

I get skipped stitches when I use my decorative stitch #27 and ZigZag stitch sewing heavy layers of fabric. I have changed my needle, cleaned out the machine and sew very slowly; basically I have done...


Did you use a larger sized needle for the think fabric? It sounds like the needle isn't penitrating deep enough. You will need a larger needle size for the thick fabric and you might try slightly adjusting the tension tho a larger needle may be all you need. Make sure it is a sharp not a ballpt needle too (assuming you're not using polyester knits which isn't something one usually makes oven mitts with :) )

Skipping stitches and upper thread breaking on JCPenney 6600


Hello,
Here are a few things to try.

* Raise your feed dogs if your machine has this feature.

* When you start to sew a seam, hold the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting caught in your machine.

* Your fabric may require a different needle. Generally, heavier fabrics require larger needles and thinner fabrics, smaller needles. You may also need a larger needle if you're sewing through many layers of fabric. And make sure to use a ballpoint needle for knit fabrics and a sharp needle for woven (or a universal needle for either). And make sure your needle is appropriate for the type of thread you're using.

* Adjust the pressure of your pressure foot, it may be too light for your fabric.

* If your upper thread and bobbin threads are different types, try using the same thread for both. And use a good quality, brand name thread.

* Change your needle plate. Try switching to a needle plate with a smaller hole (a straight stitch needle plate).

Important Note: If you change your needle plate, check to make sure your needle aligns perfectly with this smaller hole before starting to sew. A misaligned needle could hit the plate and break, which could be dangerous. And make sure to change your needle plate back for zigzag and other wide stitches.

I hope this helps.
