SOURCE: my sewing machine keeps getting jammed when

Hello,
Here are a couple of things to try.

* Un-thread your machine and remove your bobbin. Clean any loose thread or lint out of your
bobbin case. Re-thread your machine, reinsert and re-thread your bobbin.

* Change your bobbin
There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you
sew.

* When you start to sew a seam, grasp 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
caught in your machine.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Bobbin thread will not stitch.

Have you had the machine serviced since you purchased it? This is something that should be done at least once a year.

Take the machine to a certified Singer dealer and explain what is happening. There may or may not be something that needs to be adjusted.

Your warranty is still in effect, but is now limited. Attempting to repair it yourself or having someone who is not a Singer dealer repair it will invalidate the remaining warranty.

SOURCE: tangled bobbin thread

Okay. I had this problem too. try taking the bobbin casing out. I had a bit of thread lintg caught in a remote area of the under-plate area. Blow it out with canned air and oil your machine. That should help. It fixed mine.

Pixie plus sewing machine needle does not go down into the bobbin but hits the metal plate on top of the bobbin. The needle cannot go through the sewing slot.


Sounds like your needle is set to off-center. Check your manual. You may have a straight-stitch plate in your machine but you have it set to stitch off center or it is set to zig-zag stitch and the needle is unable to clear the stitch plate.

Machine is binding up


New needle, right way around, and thread again from scratch, manual in hand. Make sure you're threading with the presser foot up. Raise the bobbin thread. Start each and every seam thus:
1. Place the work under the needle. Use the handwheel or needle up/down function to drop the needle into the fabric.
2. Drop the presser foot.
3. Hold the bobbin and top thread ends together and take about 3 stitches.
4. Drop the thread ends and sew normally. See also: http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/22521551 last pair of photos.

E123@aol.comMy needle on my Bernina 1530 Inspiration just stopped going up and down whether I use the foot pedal or manually attempt to move the needle


This sounds like you have the machine in bobbin winding mode, just refer to your manual to take it out of bobbin winding mode. I'm not familier with your exact model, but the is typically a lever, or button that is used to wind bobbins, so the needle doesn't keep sewing without the bobbin thread in place.

Please rate my solution thanks

Kenmore 100 stitch 385 Bobbin thread does not engage into stitch, Needle goes down but thread does not pull up into stitch. Threading bobbin according to diagram on foldout section. replaced the bobbin...


make sure that you have enough of a tail on your thread, at least 3-4 inches and hold it with your left hand until the needle picks up the thread. I am assuming that you have your bobbin threaded correctly and your needle is inserted with the flat side facing the rear of the machine.

Jams


I make flannel square quilts for babies, it is a nightmare itself. It makes a lot of lint in the bobbin case and under the face plate, try prewashing the fabric before using it and clean out the bobbin case frequently while sewing. When i dont prewash it, i just open the bobbin area and blow the cotton dust out with my breath or i use the small brush to clean it out

Bobbin Case


I'm having a similar problem today. I took out the bobbin case and when I went to put it back in, the whole system locks up. I've tired cleaning, changing needle taking the metal plate and piece that holds bobbin case out and put it all back in after cleaning. Nothing. My symptom is I can't get a complete stitch, the needle goes down, the whole deal acts like it will work and as soon as the arm of the bobbin case gets to 8 o' clock on the gears, It jams and won't hardly move. I cannot pull the bobbin case out easily after this. Perhaps there is someone out there that can help us!
