SOURCE: Thread tension?

I own this little gem of a machine. It definitely sews a perfect stitch. I'm assuming you own the green 3/4 size machine as denoted by your product number. The half size blue one pictured is incorrect.

Anyway, this machine sews a perfect stitch, due to the oscillating bobbin. Most sewing machines with rotary (drop in) bobbins don't have an easily accessible bobbin tension screw, which means your fabric is usually slightly puckered. Fiddling with only the upper tension helps very little. This frustrates me to no end for sewing long curtains, clothing side seams, etc. Wrong tension causes them to hang with puckers, making them look awful. With the Hello Kitty 3/4 size Janome, there is a screw on the bobbin case which allows you to adjust for every thread diameter perfectly. Always a perfect stitch, if you take the time to adjust this screw.

To adjust the bobbin for a perfect tension, load the bobbin into the bobbin case and thread it through the guide. Holding only the thread between two or three fingers, let the bobbin case dangle below. This will be slightly difficult, because the bobbin will want to fall out of the case. Don't worry, just don't move it around too much and it will stay in long enough for this test. If the metal bobbin case slowly drops lower, unwinding thread as it goes, the thread is too loose. Tighten the screw on the side of the bobbin case a little (about a quarter turn.)

If the bobbin case seems to be dangling firmly, give the thread a gentle tug, lifting up fairly quickly. If it doesn't release a couple of inches of thread, it's too tight, loosen the screw. You know the tension is perfect when a quick, light tug of the thread releases a couple of inches of thread.

SOURCE: Thread won't catch bobbin

I hope to God nobody else pays more for a repair than the machine is worth.

It's ridiculous to spend $300 for that repair since the machine is available almost everywhere for way under $200. You could have thrown that one in the trash and bought a new one cheaper than the repair!!
I paid $129 for mine, had the same problem with two, yes, two of them, and sent them back and was sent another which so far is working fine. There seems to be a flaw in the engineering of that machine since so many people are experiencing the same problem. The machines DO have a warranty so please, please, be careful of unscrupulous repair people. Oh, I'm sorry but I need to mention that I bought my machine from eBay and it was a refurbished machine sold by Ken Sewing and Vacumm in Muscle Shoals, Al. They stand behind their products and were very nice to deal with, they even paid for the return shipping on the two that I returned. Hope this helps y'all.

SOURCE: How to thread a Frister and Rossman 35

Presser foot up, takeup lever at the top, thread on the top spool pin, take the thread to the left and over the top guide, straight down the right hand side of the tension and go round it making sure the thread goes between the discs, up the left hand side to the takeup lever, thread the takeup lever right to left, take the thread all the way down to the needle going through any guides on the way, thread the needle left to right, make sure the flat side of the needle is facing right.

SOURCE: Toyota RS2000, problems with shuttle hook

my suggestion is to have it checked, sometimes sewing thick fabric on some machines can cause a problem.

I got a frister rossman 700 sewing machine Needle thread boby thing ok But as im sewing its got loose stiching at the back front looks well sewed But due to not tight at the back it will open up


If it is the upper thread creating loops on the back of the fabric, either the upper thread is not seated completely in the tension disk or the tension is too loose. When re-threading, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat completely.

How to use a Waltons Celestial 516 sewing machine?


I conducted a rather through search with Google, Bing, and Yahoo and did not find a free users manual for this machine. The links below are 1) for a contributor who possessed such a machine and 2) for a company that claims to be able to sell you a manual to a machine which your machine is "rebadged" from. That is, the machine was sold under several brand names.

FixIt contributor Andrew Rose in 2013 indicated this machine was a rebadged Frister and Rossman 64 or 66. I found only links to sites purportedly selling manuals for these models and can not easily evaluate if the sites are legitimate or scams. Andrew Rose actually indicated he had the very machine you mention as well as a manual. But Andrew only made 4 postings and may not be available to contact. http://www.fixya.com/users/arose62

That said, here is a link which offers a F and R manual for sale and shows a picture of the Frister and Rossman 64. http://sewingonline.co.uk/frister+rossmann.html
