Re: Machine stops and sews in place

My machine will chain without fabric but as soon as I place fabric and sew it will not make stitches on fabric

Be sure to use brand new needles in the machine (confirm they are the correct needles for the machine) and make sure they are installed facing the correct direction and pushed all the way up before tightened. Start a chain without the fabric, then when it's a couple inches long, raise the presser foot and add the fabric.

Could be your machine has a timing issue and probably requires service.

Singer Touch-tronic 2000 makes loud humming/buzzing noise, stitch selector lights quit working, needle bar stopped moving.

Sounds like you've got a thread jam going on in the bobbin case area. Good cleaning and a new needle will probably fix it. See:

My brother started making a loud noise when sewing pant fabrics

Your machine is complaining because it doesn't have the power to push through the layers of fabric. That clunking noise is the gears in the machine skipping and being sheered off (or it will be eventually) STOP!

If you feel that you need to continue... stop when it does this noise and use the HAND WHEEL. You'll also need to make sure that the presser foot remains level while going over thick seams.

My Juki MO-655 serger will sew a few inches then the needle thread becomes disengaged in the stitch process. The machine will sew a few inches more then stops making stitches. I have cleaned the thre

Make sure you are threading the machine correctly. Make sure you are using serger thread that isn't old. Make sure you are undoing all the threads when it breaks and thread it from the beginning.

Make sure you have the right needles in their respective places. My Juki MO has two different size needles.

At Joann Fabrics you can buy a notion called a Jean a ma jig, it is something that you put under the rear of the presser foot so that the presser foot stays level and will go over the seam easily. Make sure if you use heavier fabric or are sewing on denim use a #14 or #16 needle so that it won't break. Good luck

Have you taken your throat plate off and cleaned that out? You have to take a stubby short screwdriver and remove the throat plate. Sometimes, lint and cloth build up in there and it looks like felt almost. I was surprised when mine had it, I always followed the standard way of cleaning and lubricating until my friend told me about this. I was shocked, to say the least, that she was right. And my machine quieted right down. Hope this solves your problem

My machine is making a loud banging noise

These are the things that cause my machine to make a "banging" sound:

The machines with the horizontal/drop-in bobbin sometimes collect lint in the bobbin case.

Sewing fabric backed with a synthetic/foam/vinyl or adhesive.

Wrong size needle for the type of fabric being sewn.

Machine does not feed properly. It sewed fine for

Here are a few solutions to check.

* Check your fabric to make sure it isn't caught on something.

* Check your pressure foot to make sure it's screwed tightly in place.

* Adjust the pressure of your pressure foot as it may be too light or too heavy for your fabric.

* Check your feed dogs for lint. If your feed dogs are clogged with lint, they're not gripping your fabric properly. Remove your pressure foot and clean out any lint with an old toothbrush.

* Raise your feed dogs if your machine has this function. They may have been inadvertently lowered.

* Check your stitch length regulator, If its set at “0” or a very small number, try switching to a longer stitch length.

* Change your needle, it may be damaged.

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

* Use a “Jean-a-ma-jig” or a “Hump-jumper”. If you've been trying to sew over a bump of fabric, such as a thick jean hem, try using this tool (your local fabric store should carry it). It keeps your pressure foot level as you sew over the bump and gives your feed dogs something to grip.

I hope this helps

I have everything in place to sew, the needle is in the fabric, I push the pedal, and it won't go and makes a horrible noise, the wheel turns about 1/2 a turn and then just stops.

see if it will work without the needle .. make sure the needle is not bent .. make sure you dont have a single (non zigzag) foot on the machine while its in zig zag mode .. the needle will hit the foot in this case .. if the machine will run without a needle and fails even with a straight needle then there could be a timing issue .. the top part of the sewing machine is syncronized with the bottom part via a shaft and some gears .. these are adjustable by a tech person .. everything has to happen at the right time if that relationship is changed thru slipage or wear then the machine may jam up .. also if some cloth, thread or lint is cought in the bottom unit it can cause the trouble .. will it turn by hand ?? if it turns by hand freely but wont turn with the motor ... and it makes a lot of noise .. you may have a loose belt from the motor .. if its a cog belt then it will make a shuddering noise as the drive gear slips over the cogs .. the belt tension is adjustable .. it just wants to be snug not tight, not loose ..
