SOURCE: Pfaff 7530/ electronic problem?

Where has it been for ten years? This could have a big affect on an electronic sewing machine.

Take the machine in to a sewing machine shop for service.

What position is needle supposed to be in when you replace it. Is needle eye suppose to be facing you or is it to be threaded from the side?

Depends on your sewing machine. Most needle flat surfaces face the back of the machine so the eye is threaded from the front, but on some machines the flat surface faces toward the harp of the machine (so the thread is threaded through the eye from the left side).

FWIW, usually, if the bobbin loads from the front of the machine the needle's flat surface faces the back. If the bobbin loads from the left side, the needle's flat surfaces faces the harp.

If you install the bobbin, thread it, and it will not pick up the bobbin thread or create a stitch, then it is likely the needle is installed incorrectly. Also, installing the needle the wrong way could cause it to strike and break, so test it SLOWLY!

The ideal would be to consult the owner's manual. Search for:

How to position the needle

The needle will rise in the holder in only one direction. If you would turn it in any other direction it go up in the holder. Most needles have the flat part in the back or on the right side. Old black Singers is reversed where the needle has the flat part on the left.

How to thread the Nelco A2?

To find a user's manual, search the internet for:
Manufacturer + Model + the word "Manual"

Search YouTube videos for threading tutorials:

With your Nelco, be sure that you install the needle properly. Frequently, Nelco machines take the needle with the flat side facing toward the throat of the machine--not toward the read like most other machines. The upper thread will thread through the needle's eye from the left toward the right. They also are a left needle position machine--meaning, the standard position of the needle when sewing straight stitch is at the left side of the presser foot, not center like most other machines.

Bobbin keeps snagging

change the needle
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of your sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the needle clamp screw to remove the old needle.
Place the new needle in the needle clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back, (round needle, the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft).
Push the needle all the way up as far as it will go. Then tighten the needle clamp screw.

rethread the machine
check the bobbin to make sure it's not warped or damaged
take the bobbin out make sure it's threaded correctly & then put the bobbin back in making sure it's turned the right way.

How do I remove the needle from my Brother Overlocker

HOLD needle before you turn needle clamp screw towards you to loosen. I emphasize holding needles a's you remove them because many sewists have accidentally DROPPED needles down into their machines! TURN OFF POWER & UNPLUG! You will have two needles (standard #11 and a #14 but check your manual, please!). Although the needles will be same length, the left one will APPEAR higher when you insert into the needle bar. The flat shank goes to the BACK, more "rounded" side of needle/s facing you. Jimmy

When it changes from straight stitch to sepintine and back to straight it skips lots of stitches. Just paid $300 for a new shaft.

try these suggestions & see if they help

Sewing machine skips stitches
1.needle inserted incorrectly--flat side of the needle faces the shaft
round needle--groove of needle faces away from the shaft
2.Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the needle. Place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back of the machine.
If round needle--the groove in the needle faces away from the shaft
Push needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go.
3.possible bent needle--lay needle on flat surface & roll needle over, if the needle does not roll good -replace
4.blunt needle point--needle makes a popping sound when needle penetrates the fabric--replace needle
5.needle not all the way up in needle holder--loosen needle clamp screw & push the needle up until it stops then tighten screw
6.incorrect threading--one step missed in sequence of threading can cause machine to skip stitches
7.wrong needle in machine--check instruction manual--some machines can use a generic needle with no problem--some can't--
8.size of needle & thread not compatible--
Using the wrong type needle can cause problems,,
A needle to fine for heavy fabric can bend or break when it hit's the fabric
And a too large needle can make puncture holes in the fabric and pull unevenly while stitching

How do i thread my needle with the singer handy stitch?

  1. Loosen needle screw & insert needle with shank's flat side facing front of machine. Push needle in all the way, then tighten screw to hold needle in place.
  2. Install a fully wound bobbin by loosening bobbin nut & placing bobbin on top. Re-attach bobbin nut & tighten. If standard thread spool will be used, then attach spool pin to bobbin shaft & place thread spool onto shaft. Attach white spool cap on end of thread spool, then tighten. Bobbin/spool should unwind facing forward toward needle.
  3. Bring end of thread through thread guides & over tension control. Pass end of thread through needle eye, from back to front, & pull it out about two inches.
  4. A spring pushes pressor foot onto fabric that is being sewn, so lift pressor foot & place fabric underneath.
  5. Turn large handwheel on side of machine (handwheel can be turned in either direction) to raise needle arm to its highest position.
  6. Holding the Handy Stitch in place with your right hand, press on power switch & begin sewing. Guide fabric (being sewn) with your left hand.
  7. To end this sewing session, turn off power. Turn handwheel to raise needle to its highest position. Carefully pull out about three inches of thread through needle & snip, then lift pressor foot to remove fabric. Turn fabric over & loop needle threader through last stitch. Place end of thread from underside through eye of needle threader, & pull to loop through. Pull to tighten and snip end of thread.

The needle and thread get stuck at the bobbin and the lo light come on my 8077

Turn the power off and replace the needle with a new one, making sure the install is as described in the manual for your machine - on most newer models, this is with the flat side of the needle shank facing the back of the machine.

Before turning the power back on, raise the needle to it's highest position. Remove the face plate, bobbin and bobbin case. Clean the area in and around the shuttle from lint and/or threads that may be tangled there.
