Question about PfaFF Creative 7570

Bobbin jams when I begin sewing, the fabric pulls to the left and the bobbin thread jams. The thread from the spool seems to get all tangled up in the casing the bobbin case fits into. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: bobbin jams

This is a common problem with all sewing machines. You must make sure that both needle and bobbin thread are behind the sewing foot and that there is at least 4inches of each thread before you begin stitching. Thread jams can also be caused by improper placement of bobbin in the casing. Place the bobbin in the case so the open side is facing you, the thread end should be on your right, then slide the thread into the opening leaving about 6 inches to pull through. It may look like it should be the other way, but there needs to be some tension. If these solutions do not help, you probably need to have your machine cleaned and adjusted.

I place the fabric on the machine, lower the foot and apply pressure to the foot peddle, when the machine begins to sew fabric is pulled down and the lower thread tangles, the machine make a crunching...

This is easily solved. Before you start sewing make sure your upper and lower threads are long enough for you to hold before lowering the presser foot. If these threads are too short they both get carried down into the bobbin along with the fabric and cause a big tangled mess. Always hold your threads at the back of your work with your left hand then lower your pressure foot and don't release the threads untill you have taken several stitches. Keep holding these threads during backstitching at the beggining of a seam too. Works like magic.

How do i thread my needle with the singer handy stitch?

  1. Loosen needle screw & insert needle with shank's flat side facing front of machine. Push needle in all the way, then tighten screw to hold needle in place.
  2. Install a fully wound bobbin by loosening bobbin nut & placing bobbin on top. Re-attach bobbin nut & tighten. If standard thread spool will be used, then attach spool pin to bobbin shaft & place thread spool onto shaft. Attach white spool cap on end of thread spool, then tighten. Bobbin/spool should unwind facing forward toward needle.
  3. Bring end of thread through thread guides & over tension control. Pass end of thread through needle eye, from back to front, & pull it out about two inches.
  4. A spring pushes pressor foot onto fabric that is being sewn, so lift pressor foot & place fabric underneath.
  5. Turn large handwheel on side of machine (handwheel can be turned in either direction) to raise needle arm to its highest position.
  6. Holding the Handy Stitch in place with your right hand, press on power switch & begin sewing. Guide fabric (being sewn) with your left hand.
  7. To end this sewing session, turn off power. Turn handwheel to raise needle to its highest position. Carefully pull out about three inches of thread through needle & snip, then lift pressor foot to remove fabric. Turn fabric over & loop needle threader through last stitch. Place end of thread from underside through eye of needle threader, & pull to loop through. Pull to tighten and snip end of thread.

How do i put threed into the bobbin and keep it from not getting tangled?

Is it getting tangled while you're spooling the bobbin on the top right corner of the Singer 1507 machine? If this is the case, you have to pull the thread through the top tiny hole in the bobbin, and hold on to the thread end. Then click the bobbin to the right to lock it in place, power up your machine. Keep holding the thread as you begin spooling the bobbin. Let go of the thread once the bobbin starts to spin a few rounds and the thread should not get tangled.

The bottom thread on my Bernina 140 jams

Try pulling more thread out before you begin the seam - about 6". If you can hold the threads while you take the first few stitches that helps too.

Thread jams in bobbin case

Open the bobbin area and make sure it is clean.

Change to a new needle.

Thread the machine with the presser foot up.

Make sure the bobbin thread is feeding in the correct direction from the bobbin spool and through the guide on the bobbin case.

Take hold of the end of the top thread and lower, then raise the needle to pull the bobbin thread up.

Take hold of both thead ends and pull them under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Place fabric under the presser foot. Lower and hand walk the first couple of stitches.

When sewing, and you need to stop to adjust the fabric, make sure the needle is down into the fabric. This will keep the stitch from malformation and causing a possible tangle.

I am having a problem with my Shark Intell-Sew that I've had a few times before but I've always been able to resolve it, and this time I can't. The machine jams, and the book says it's usually because the...

Many machines today have a horizontal thread delivery for the needle thread. Be sure and place the thread spool with its tiny notch on one end (the notch is used to secure the loose thread end when not in use) facing toward the far right side of the spool holder and not facing toward the left side where the thread will be guided off the thread spool into the vertical tension discs and toward the needle. Some times this tiny notch will catch the thread causing undue thread tension on the needle thread. Placing the thread spool facing toward the right seems to help the thread guide off the spool without catching in the tiny notch.

Also hold onto the needle thread and the bobbin thread, giving slight hand tension to both, for the first few stitches you make in your fabric. With the first uptake of the needle, the needle’s thread tail and bobbin tail are drawn down somewhat loosely into the bobbin case and can become tangled and jam if not held onto briefly. Be sure the bobbin thread comes out of the needle plate in the area it is intended to. After winding a new bobbin, it may help to put the bobbin in its bobbin case and just raise the machine needle by hand just enough to allow the needle to bring up the bobbin thread to the top. Give the bobbin thread and needle thread held together a slight tug so that they both lay out behind of or to the side of the needle. If you have left off the needle throat plate for last (for those machines that allow the throat plate to be removed) when placing the throat plate back on the machine, be careful to guide the bobbin thread through the hole or space in the needle throat plate so the bobbin thread lies on top the plate.

Using the right machine needle for the fabric helps too. Generally, ball-point needles work great for knits and sharp-pointed needles for woven fabrics. Using the smallest size needle that makes the best stitch for the type of fabric seems to work well for most fabrics to produce clean even stitches.

Using the best quality thread helps. The bargain-priced threads found piled in sale bins at the fabric store work great for hand sewing but not for machine sewing. Lesser quality thread make lots of fuzz as it passes through the needle and can jam the machine. Many sewing machine repair folks hate the thought of us using a can of compressed air to blow out fuzz from the tiny spaces of the machine, particularly the newest digital electronic machines, but a spritz or two of compressed air in the vertical thread slots that hold the tension discs and in the bobbin case itself, usually can dislodge bits of fuzz from these spaces. Although compressed air is not recommended for a new machine the thought is offered for you to consider for older, mechanical machines.
