Beeping lights when trying to sew

I've checked the threading of the machine and it's okay and checked the bobbin too but still get the beeping lights and it stops. Could it be the thread?

    I have the same problem, adjusted the tension on the needle and bobbin, then just tried what you suggested, but it is still doing the same thing.

Look at the back of the needle threader. There is a buttonhole lever. Pull it down and push it back to the top. The machine gives a warning message if the lever is down and you wants to sew or embroid.

Good Luck

My singer curvy starts beeping and lights flashing and won't sew


I just got mine to stop flashing lights and function again when I unplugged the cords from the machine and let it sit for a minute. You can always give that a try.

Thread keeps coming out of the bobbin holder while sewing


it could be the way the bobbin is wound
try turning the bobbin the opposite way in the bobbin case
try a different bobbin that one could be warped
there could be something wrong with the bobbin case itself
or even the hook and the hook race may need to be checked
to see if there is something wrong with them.

Janome mini heavy duty sewing machine


when you sew keep a eye on the thread take up lever & see if the thread comes off while your sewing, I've had this happen to me & I've been sewing for over 30 years. if this does happen, take a pair of pliers & very gently close the take up lever just alittle but not enough to damage it.
also check the needle to see if it's damaged--if your not sure change the needle--flat side goes to the back of the machine
always make sure the fabric & needle & thread are compatable--the thread must be able to pull thru the needle with out any problem
also check to make sure there are not any burrs on the needle plate or bobbin or bobbin case

Bobbin placement we cant get in correctly and it wont pick the bobbin thread up. when trying ti sw it bunches in knots and breaks sometimes


Sounds like the bobbin may not be the right one for your machine. YOu haven't said what make and model this is but you should check your manual or online to ensure you have the correct bobbin for it. I've seen Elna's with Singer bobbins in, they'll stitch okay but then tension problems occur, you need to have the right one for your machine. (if you aren't sure, try looking at www.sewusa.com or www.sewingpartsonline.com to find the bobbin described for your machine.)

Also metal bobbins can get squished if they've been stood on, so have a good look at it and make sure the bobbin is in good shape and looks okay.

Now take the thread off it and rewind a fresh bobbin making sure you've got tension on the thread the whole time and that the thread winds onto the bobbin very smoothly and evenly. This is something that is not emphasied in sewing machine manuals but makes a HUGE difference. Think of your garden hose coiled onto the hose reel. If you wind as the hose wants to go, it goes onto the reel all over the place, then jams up and you can't get it all on there. Look at how a thread spool is wound, the factories wind the thread in a very neat sequence and you want your bobbin to look the same. So always use the tensioner on top of the machine to take the thead around when winding the bobbin. If you don't have one, then put tension onto the thread spool the thread is coming off to ensure the thread runs off at a constant tension and speed.

Carefully watch the thread as it goes onto the bobbin and nudge it with your fingertip to get it to fill evenly top, bottom and middle of the bobbin. Stop when 3/4 full.

Now put bobbin to bobbin holder ensuring that it goes in the right way, always the thread should come off the bobbin and reverse direction in a V shape. Click the thread into the tension spring. Double check it is in there and then thread up the rest of the machine and test sew.

THere is some good trouble shooting tips at www.sewusa.com so this might help you also.
