Question about Singer 15ND Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

The bobbin is getting caught and needle is jamming

I have a bernette 65 and its a fairly new machine. I only used it a few times. I just rethreaded the machine and was doing a test run and the needle kept jamming, and it broke. i replaced the needle, and when i turn the wheel to raise and lower the needle, it seems to be ok until i raise the needle all the way, when i bring it back down the bobbin does not turn and the needle hits the plastic, its not rotating for the needle to catch. i thredted the bobbin a few times and its just not rotating properly. the first stitch i sewed pulled a chunk of thread through. i have no idea what i'm doing wrong, i've never had this problem before.

    Only now the bobbin holder is jumping out of place. I belive the bobbin holder is now broken and needs to be replaced. This is my second machine. The first was returned and I was given the floor model. It is not any better.

This sounds like there is cotton stuck in the bobbin holder. Check it thoroughly. Take the bobbin out and turn the wheel to lower the needle a few times. This will show up any thread caught. Pull it out gently. You may have to perservere to get it all out.

My Bernette 715 isn't picking up the bobbin thread and is getting jammed. Any ideas what's wrong?


First thing to always try: Install a brand new needle. A dull, worn, or bent needle will cause great frustration. It is also the least expensive resolution to most problems.

Second: Remove all the threads. RAISE the presser foot. Rethread from the beginning making sure it is threaded correctly.
Pull up the bobbin thread before beginning to stitch and hold the thread tails in the left hand while slowly taking the first few stitches:

If still having issues with not pulling up the bobbin thread, the needle/hook may be out of time.

My Bernina Bernette 65 has a problem with the thread bunching up every 10-15 stiches on the bottom. Some of the thread stitches on the bottom of the fabric are in a straight line, and then the thread will...


try a new needle--one that is for the fabric being sewed
then try to adjust the top thread tension again, if the stitches remain loose and the tension won't adjust then the tension knob needs to be checked to see if there is something wrong with it.
also check to make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, if the bobbin is not turned the right way in the bobbin case the sewing machine will not stitch correctly.

My bernette 65 is bunching underneath. How do I resolve that?


Grasp the threads and hold them down when you start your seam. If it still happens make sure your thread is seated into your upper tension mechanisms. If that still isn't solving your problem... CLEAN between the tension discs with some sturdy fabric folded in half. (wax build up from threads can cause issues)

Good luck

I am getting a code that says the needle is bent or the thread is knotted, neither is true. I have changed the needle and rethreaded both the top thread and bobbin. What else could it be


I have a Bernette Deco 600 which was doing the same thing. While it was running it would jam and give this code. If you take the cover off of the end of the top of the machine on my machine there was a rod the needle was connected to. There were two cams attached to this rod, one of the cams was slipping which threw the machine into a jam. Once I pushed the cams together and tightened down the set screw it worked great. Good luck

It could be that there is a loose piece of thread, or some fluff which is obstructing the tension gauge. Try blowing around the theading area (or even run the hoover pipe near it to see if you can **** it out). I cleared mine by folding a piece of non fluffy material and rubbing gently between the tension dial and machine.

Good luck
