Computerized sewing machine needle is bound up

I just bought a new sewing machine yesterday, and took it out of the box to discover it is not working properly.  I started at the beginning of the manual and it made uncomplicated stitches beautifully, but when I went to try a letter, it made the first few stitches and froze.  Now the needle will not move, nor does the wheel on the right budge.  I have checked the thread and the bobbin and both are correct and tension is fine (pull smoothly through the shuttle.

SOURCE: shuttle alignment and assembly

The shuttle/race/bobbin system shouldn't really be taken apart by the average user. Unfortunately, your chances of ever getting it back together properly so the machine will sew (this is the timing of the machine) are very slim. You'll need to take it to a sewing machine technician. I would recommend an authorized Pfaff tech as they'll be sure to have the proper tools to do this correctly - won't be inexpensive but will be worth it. Most "neighborhood sewing machine repair folks" don't have experience on computer machines. Resetting timing on a computer machine isn't the same as the old mechanicals and requires some expertise.

SOURCE: Bobbin thread breaks

Make sure your bobbin thread is turning clockwise as it sits in the bobbin case. There is a screw on the outside of the bobbin case you can turn with your thumb slightly to adjust tension. If you dangle the case from the thread and give it a light ****, it should move down slightly when doing so-an indicator of good bobbin tension.

SOURCE: unable to adjust tension,

Sounds like the bobbin thread is not inside the tension on the bobbin case. This normally happens when the bobbin is upside down. Insert the bobbin and pull on the thread.The bobbin should turn counter clockwise.

SOURCE: thread tension

I have had this problem when the bobbin was wound wrong and also when the machine was improperly threaded. Check your manual to make sure you hit all the threading points, but I think the most common one i've missed that caused this was the metal loop you thread immediately before threading the needle.

SOURCE: back side of fabric stitch is not smooth

This is caused by inadequate tension on the top thread make sure there are no broken threads between the discs of your upper tension and it should be set on app #4

Machine is binding up


New needle, right way around, and thread again from scratch, manual in hand. Make sure you're threading with the presser foot up. Raise the bobbin thread. Start each and every seam thus:
1. Place the work under the needle. Use the handwheel or needle up/down function to drop the needle into the fabric.
2. Drop the presser foot.
3. Hold the bobbin and top thread ends together and take about 3 stitches.
4. Drop the thread ends and sew normally. See also: http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/22521551 last pair of photos.

Needle not aligned with hole in presser foot


Hi if the needle is hitting the needle plate you best get in touch with who you bought it from, The needle position is a critical adjustment and is done in conjunction with other adjustments.

I just bought a Janome 9700 and I was wondering what kind of needles work best. I have hear that the Organ Titanium are really good. What are your thoughts? Thanks!


I've been sewing for over 30 years, I used organ needle before, but not the organ titanium, you said you just bought the machine, did it come with a instruction manual? if it did then it should tell which needle to use.
I have 2 necchi sewing machine & one babylock serger & I use SCHMETZ universal needle on all my machine, I never had any problems sewing with them, I make clothes & quilts & even upholstery some.
happy sewing

Needle won't pick up bobbin thread. Has been working fine all week. I changed the needle, took out the bobbin case, cleaned inside but there were no threads or lint. I rethreaded machine and tried a new...


Most of the time it is because the needle was inserted with the flat side facing you instead of away from you. And for the heck of it, put in a different needle, there may have been a burr or some defect on your new needle. Other than that, it could be your timing.

Thread continues to jam


Hi, my wife and I just bought a Juki HZL-E80... I love the machine. I had a problem like you discribe...This problem can come from two sources...one the bobin has been installed improperly. ...or been wound incorrectly by not haveing adjusted the Bobbin tension ...I did the tension adjustment with the screwdriver supplied with the machine accessories. Also...this is a biggie...the auto matic needle threader works great...but I discovered that when I preformed this function..that I over looked the thread holder that keeps the thread even with the needle....so, the solution is to thread the needle then be sure to check that the thread coming down from the spool is placed behind the little wire holder above the needle...I hope this helps you ...because it is a wonderful machine.....Bill & Donna Bramble...Caldwell Idaho...

Kenmore sewing machine


Have you changed the needle? If you have sewn for many hours it may just be a matter of a new needle. Be sure to use flat back kenmore or kenmore compatiable needles...no Singer (too long).
