SOURCE: threading a sewing machine

What do you mean you are unable to pull the bobbin thread through, elaboration would help solve the problem...
I suspect I'm having the same problem with you if it's anything to do with the top thread looping around in the bobbin holder.

Damn machine!

SOURCE: Help with Thompson mini walking foot...


These guys should have a manual for you. Just tell them you have a LS1 Straight Stitch.

The Thompson machine was the precursor to a whole slew of walking foot clones.

Sailrite may not acknowledge the Thompson but I have researched a few things

and the Sailrite Machines are direct descendants.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: while sewing on singer quantum

Mine did this and it seemed impossible to fix. My problem was a tiny bit of thread stuck in the bobbin cover (but it could be anywhere in the thread route). I ran dental floss through the path the thread follows and also in the bobbin cover and poof out came a small piece of thread that all my looking missed. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: need help to thread our sewing machine.

you really must get a manual for this machine.
You can find manuals online for a small price.
At one time some sites had them for free, but I haven't been able to find many recently. has some older ones for free. but not many. you could try the kenmore site as well, if not I'd try to search on (sewing machine manuals)
Just so you know, your manual is the MOST important tool for any sewing machine, and its worth a couple of bucks to get it.

Needle hitting plate and breaking thread

It sound as though the needle shaft is bent. Using a plyer to gently adjust the needle shaft so the needle hits the center of the opening it's supposed to go through. Test. If it continues to hit something after going below the plate then it could very well be a timing issue. Refer to your owners manual on timing related issues.

I have the Thompson model PW-400 walking foot sewing machine and when I plug it in it immediately starts running. (sewing)

I have the Thompson PW400. I know this sounds like too simple of a solution, but it actually happened to us. We accidentally plugged the machine cord into the wall outlet. Are you plugging the cord attached to the machine directly into a wall outlet or extension cord? The second part of the cord has two plugs on it, one for a light and the other for the motor. If you aren't plugging the machine cord directly into the plug marked "motor" the machine will start up immediately running at top speed. Hope that solves your problem.

We have a Thompson PW-301. I find the instruction manual very had to understand in some instances. I finally got it threaded, but the tension part I had trouble with. Once I figured that out, now it seems...

Here's some things for you to try.

* Re-thread your machine, it may be threaded incorrectly.

* Raise your feed dogs if your machine has this feature.

* When you start to sew a seam, hold on to the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting hung up in your machine.

I hope this help you.
