Machine not working

I was sewing with my viking C20 when my needle hit a pin, the machine tried to keep sewing but got jammed. The pin was just bent and I removed the jam then rethreaded the machine. But now the top thread will not grab the bobbin thread

I had this happen the first day I got my machine. The bobbin case has probably came loose from the holder. There is a step by step cleaning instruction in the manual and it tells you how to reset the bobbin case in the holder in the manual.

Problem with my bobbin case I'm sewing suddenly there clunking, my machine jams, bobbin case flipped 180. took apart, re-adjusted, put everything back and it worked fine, but it keeps happening. Help


Sounds like there are some parts that are worn or broken on your machine. A bobbin, when correctly inserted and latched, should not spin 180 degrees on its own.

Have you tried a brand new needle? Just wondering if it is bent and hitting below the needle plate.

Ran over pin. Broke needle, replaced it. Was jammed pretty good. Cleaned out bobbin compartment. Dogs look good, but motor doesn't run. Lights come on, stitch card functions. Viking husqvarna Quilt


Oooh, ouch!!! Were you able to get all of the needle pieces out of the machine? Unfortunately, it may have knocked the machine out of time or bent/damaged some internal mechanism necessitating professional service.

In the future, instead of placing pins horizontally across the seam line, align them parallel with the seam edge--far enough away to clear the presser foot. Sew slower and remove the pins before they get to the presser foot. Broken needles can be dangerous to you and the machine--as you already know.

Huskylock viking serger machine is very noisy / squealling; oiled / cleaned machine, changed needles... It gets quieter if I sew fast.


some machine make more noise than others, but to be on the safe side I suggest having the machine check to see if there is something else wrong, it could be something is loose or worn in the machine.

When I'm sewing a seam the needle always hits the straight pins. I've checked the needle, removed it and put it back in. When it hits the pins it almost always breaks the needle.


When you are sewing you are supposed to take out the pins as you go to avoid the needle hitting the pins.Sew a little and remove a pin,sew a little more and remove another pin.That's how you do it.If you hit a pin change the needle it will most likly be bent or blount after hitting a pin. www.sewvac.com

Bobbin holder seems to be broke and needle breaks


Hello,
Here are several things to try.

* When you insert your new needle, make sure it’s positioned correctly (usually with the flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your manual), that it goes all the way into the holder, and that the screw is securely tightened.


If there doesn’t seem to be a problem with your needle, try the following:

* Check your pressure foot and make sure it’s attached securely.


* Change your pressure foot Your pressure foot may be bent, causing your needle to hit it.


* Don’t sew over pins a needle that hits a pin can break. Always remove the pins from your fabric before they reach your needle.


* Don’t pull your fabric as you sew. You could be bending your needle back, causing it to hit your needle plate instead of going into the hole. Just guide your fabric, letting it feed on its own.


* Check your needle plate and make sure it's securely in position.


* Change your needle plate. If you’ve been using a straight stitch needle plate (a plate with a small hole, often used for sewing fine, delicate fabrics), switch to a needle plate with a wider hole.


* Check the position of your needle. Sewing machines with zigzag capability allow you to adjust the position of your needle – right, left, or center. If your needle is not positioned correctly, it may be hitting your needle plate or pressure foot.


* 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.

Also, before you start to sew a seam, hold 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 these solutions help you.

Problems with lower thread tension


Did you bend the throat plate? I have done that and it was a nightmare. I took it off and gently hit it from the backside with a towel over it to bend it back the way it was. It worked fine.

Needle clamp won't attach to needle bar


There is a set screw above the needle pin screw which tightens with an allen wrench--try that.
