Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Sewing machines I can't believe the number of people on here with so many very simple problems with their sewing machines. Save yourself a lot of heartache and check your manual. That's the number 1 rule. If you can't find what you want there, ring the nearest dealer. If you don't have a manual, ring the dealer and ask them to send you one. They don't cost much. If it really seems as if there is something wrong, take it to your dealer for attention. A lot of time a service will fix it up.

Starting to sew basic stitch


You need to know how to thread the upper thread, wind thread onto a bobbin, and install the bobbin in the machine.

Be sure to lower the presser foot onto the fabric you are going to stitch.

Then press on the foot control pedal (like a gas pedal in a car). The harder you press, the faster it will stitch.

There are a lot of web sites and videos available. But, you should probably read the machine's manual.

How do i remove cover


Lots of screws, then lots of clips to break off when removing the shells, then lots of fine cables to damage. Then a very big repair bill.

Save yourself a headache and a lot of money. Get it looked at by a trained Brother or Babylock tech. Brother makes Babylock machines so getting it serviced by a Brother shop because Babylock shops pay roughly 30% more for parts than Brother shops.

I have a singer 3116 simple. i believe the timing is out how do i fix this problem. thanks


It is not a do it yourselfer, you have to have the expertise and special tools. So you would have to take it in for service. If, it is under warranty, great if not, it is not great, it is expensive. Why do you think the timing is out? Explain the problem and we may be able to solve it without it being the timing.

Stich setting


It is usually 2.5 or mid-way between 2 and 3. Set it longer - closer to 3 when stitching thick fabrics.

Make a sample of the stitches by sewing on a folded scrap of plain cotton or muslin and mark the settings used for future reference.

Do the same for the zig-zag settings and this will save a lot of time and guessing.

My White sewing machine model 312 sounds like a tractor and keeps breaking the thread. It's one of the worst sewing machines I have ever owned. Rose Comeau


Have you changed the needle? I know that sounds simple, but can cause a lot of trouble if using an old needle. And clean out under the needle plate - this is important. Also try rethreading.

Need to replace the light bulb--how do I do that


You will need to obtain a new lamp from a Janome dealer.......they will probably offer to install it for you for no additional charge.......just ring to agree a time.

It is a small low voltage, simple push in type lamp & I believe the part number to be: 000 009 906

Just make sure the machine is NOT plugged in when you change it !!
