    My machine doesnt thread itself either. When I load the cartridge and the arm comes down to thread the needle the thread pops. The arm also gets stuck and doesnt retract.

Oh my. This machine - you either love it or it gives you trouble! Mine will stop threading once in a while. Usually, my needle is not in "just right" . I found I had to actually lift up on the screw and then screw in the needle. Also, it seems to thread better if the presser foot is in the up postition.

My needle was just a little off (came that way from the factory. When I changed it, lined it up, and slowly but firmly lowered the cassette, I have had no more problems.

Are there any tricks to threading? I follow the directions in the manual and always have problems threading it.


if its threading the needle itself , ive found that the auto threaders that are sold at most fabric stores work quite well , also if one keeps a block of Bee's wax handy a quick swipe of thread over it and WOW it stays stiff enough to hand thread it , not paraffin wax bee's wax its softer helps to lube your machine as well as thread passes over different parts

Needle continually unthreads itself


I would suggest to you to change the needle--it could be damaged
causing the thread to be cut.
also check the needle plate for burrs or sharp spots that you can feel
with your finger.

After starting to sew the sewing machine stop. It seems to ne getting tight up at the top of the machine. It is threaded correctly. Do you have any suggestions?


This is not what you want to hear but... recheck the threading yet again. This time totally unthread it and start again. Look at the spool that holds the thread and where the thread is coming off of the spool itself. Look to see if the little notch you take the thread out of when you first open a new spool is catching the thread as it turns on the spool. If there's a possibility that is happening make sure that end of the spool is at the top. Sometimes the thread will get catch and therefore refuse to move when it is on the bottom side of the spool.

Also check to make sure the thread isn't wrapped around any of the guides and once again check to see that it is threaded correctly.

If it isn't just the thread breaking but the machine itself seeming to lock up and not move then you need to take it in for servicing.

Why does the thread keep breaking?


check the needle to see if it's bent-roll on flat surface to see if it rolls correctly
thread tension maybe to tight-select lower number
sometimes the thread can get caught on the
1.spool pin
2.the notch on the thread spool itself
some times the thread will come off the thread take up lever

I have a designer se the take up lever keeps dropping the thread


Try threading with a figure-of-eight motion - take the thread to the left of the take-up lever hook, across through the hook, then down to the needle. This makes the thread cross itself below the take-up lever hook and may help keep the thread in place. Also be sure that your thread is in the tension disks properly. Always thread with the presser foot raised so the tension disks are open and the thread can seat itself properly. If this does not help, you probably need to see a machine technician.

The thread keeps jumping out of the thread takeup lever on my Pfaff. What is causing this? I've replaced the needle and the bobbin shuttle.


if you have the machine threaded correctly, try threading the takeup lever from the opposite side so the thread crosses over itself and see if that helps.

I pulled out the lubricating strip under the bobbin



Bobbin Winding 1 Put spool of thread on spool pin. ] Use spool cushion when using cross wound thread. ] Use spool cap when using parallelwound thread. 2 Lift thread guide bar all the way up, and run thread through triangular thread guide as shown in drawing. 3Run thread through bobbin winding thread guide as shown in drawing. 4 Run thread through top thread notch 1, and align bottom thread notch 2 with guide pin on bobbin winder shaft. 5 Press bobbin stop up against empty bobbin. If the bobbin stop does not slide easily between the top and bottom of the bobbin, check that the bobbin is seated properly with the guide pin (4) inserted into the lower notch 6 While holding the end of the thread, step on the foot controller for a few seconds. Once enough thread has wound itself around the bobbin to hold itself in place, release the foot controller and trim the excess thread. 7 Stop winding when bobbin Begin
8 Manually move bobbin stop back to original position. 9 Cut thread and remove bobbin.

bobbin insertion 1 Lift slide plate (and open bobbin door). 2 Put bobbin into the bobbin case. ] Run thread through thread notch and under latch spring, so that a length of about 10 cm is exposed. ] Use a bobbin case with an idling prevention spring. 3 Pull the latch lever of the bobbin case out and push the bobbin case into the shuttle race and release the latch lever. ] If the latch lever is not all the way on the hook, it may fly off during sewing and cause lower thread breakage. 4 Lower slide plate and close bobbin door, following numbers 1 2 above in order. 6 While holding the end of the thread, step on the foot controller for a few seconds. Once enough thread has wound itself around the bobbin to hold itself in place, release the foot controller and trim the excess thread. 7 Stop winding when bobbin is full. Take foot off foot controller. * Place the thread end so that it does not protrude from the bobbin. Bobbin Stop
so this will be ok and no need to worry about this

Husqvarna bobbin thread jamming


Make sure the bobbin thread "clicks" into the tension slot. However, thread nests underneath are usually caused by the top thread, not the bobbin. Make sure your thread is seating itself in the top tension disks. To do this, put the spool on the machine, pull off about 12 or 15 inches of thread, then hold this thread down with one finger on your right hand as you take the thread tail through the threading path with your left hand. When you get to the needle, tug the thread (still holding it down up top) to be sure it seats in the tensions disks. You must also have the presser foot UP while you do this to ensure that the tension disks are open. Watch the first thread guide after the spool as you sew to make sure the thread is not jumping out of there (a common problem with Des1 machines, fixed with SEs - no comfort to you and me!). I have put a small piece of tape across there with the end turned back on itself so no sticky bit is going to catch on the thread.

First, make sure that you are threading the machine properly check your manual for right thread path.
Secondly, make sure you are using an embroidery needle.
