After refilling bobbin and changing thread the machine began bunching up on bottom of fabric. What did I do wrong?


Hi JoAnn. Check the take up lever. It sounds like when you rethreaded your machine you missed the take up. It is the arm that goes up and down toward the left end of the machine. Thanks

How do I get my machine to start sewing and stop beeping?


try rethreading the machine--use EVERY thread guide
make sure the needle is inserted up into the needle holder and turned the right direction
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case and turned the right direction
clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for loose thread or lint
make sure thread has not come off the thread take up lever
also the jam could have caused the machine to jump time and needs a timing or a adjustment

I have a euro pro x I cant get the upper thread to pick up bobbin thread I have tried everything please help


Are you holding the end of the top thread whilst trying to pickup the bobbin thread? Put a BRAND NEW needle in - it may look OK, buy the slightest bend will be an issue. Is it the CORRECT needle for you machine? - check your manual. Is the bobbin in the case correctly and feeding out the correct direction? ...... timing may be out

Getting my machine to thread the bobbin threw the bottom of the sewing machine


That can be caused by a few things.

1. Bobbin un-spooling in the wrong direction. (when you hold the bobbin and tug the thread it should spin the bobbin to the left)

2. The needle isn't fully inserted, is bent, or not correctly oriented.

3. The machine is not timed correctly.

Good luck

I can only get a small amount of thread wound on the bobbin.It stops and wont take any more. The bobbin case keeps moving & I cant get it back in correct place


I assume you are placing the bobbin at the TOP of the machine, then wrapping the end of the thread several times around the bobbin in a counter-clockwise motion?
Have you made sure to "scoot" the empty bobbin next to the bobbin bar to the right? Is the thread going from your spool, directly TO the bobbin? Because it is supposed to wrap around the tension "nut" (where you start to thread your machine) before going to the bobbin.

My needle keeps coming unthreaded. HELP please


1) Open the needle plate and bobbin case and make sure the tangled threads are removed.

2) Open the manual; read and follow every step.

3) Thread the machine with the presser foot up - this is often overlooked and causes loopy stitches that pull right out.

4) Make sure the bobbin in inserted so the bobbin thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

5) Take hold of the needle thread and lower, then raise the needle to pull the bobbin thread up through the needle plate. Take both threads under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

6) When you come to the end of the stitching, make sure the take up lever is at it's highest position. This will keep the thread from coming out of the needle when you begin to sew.

I hope this will help and you will soon be sewing.

How to thread the machine.


http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Thread-a-Sewing-Machine/
check out this link.. it is described clearly with the help of images...

OR
try to do by reading these steps..

Step 1 Raise the needle to its highest position by turning the handwheel toward you.
Step 2 Raise the presser foot. This will allow the thread to easily pass through the threading points and will prevent the machine needle from becoming unthreaded when you begin to stitch.
Step 3 Place a spool of thread on the spool pin located at the top of your sewing machine. If the spool pin runs horizontally, secure the spool of thread with the cap provided.
Step 4 Take hold of the thread end and pass it through the designated threading points on the top of the machine casing, then down toward the tension assembly. The tension assembly is located on the left side of the machine and controls the flow of thread.
Step 5 Take the thread under the tension assembly and back up through the next threading point at the top left of the machine. Make sure the thread has passed between two tension discs as well as the hook that may be attached to the left side of the tension dial.
Step 6 Push the thread end through the lever at the top left of the machine, if applicable, and down through the threading points at bottom left and above the needle.
Step 7 Thread the needle from the front or back of the needle. The threading direction will depend on your machine type.
Step 8 Pull a few inches of thread through the eye of the needle and pull the thread to your left.
Step 9 Insert a wound bobbin into the machine, if necessary, and close the throat plate. A few inches of bobbin thread should be pulled out to the right and sticking out from under the closed throat plate.
Step 10 Take hold of the thread that has been threaded through the machine needle.
Step 11 Rotate the hand wheel toward you until the needle disappears into the bobbin case.
Step 12 Keep holding on to the thread and move the hand wheel so the needle is once again at its highest position. As the needle rises, a loop of bobbin thread will come up as well.
Step 13 Pull the thread out toward your left to draw the bobbin thread loop further out of the bobbin case.

Step 14
Let the top thread go and pull the bobbin thread up until the end comes up. Pull the top and bottom threads under the presser foot and to the back and right of the machine.

please rate this solution...

I cant remember how to fill the bobbin with thread :(


Insert the empty bobbin case onto the bobbin winder in the sewing machine.

Step 2 Set the spool of thread onto the thread peg. Use the same thread you want to use on your material to obtain the best finished stitch.

Step 3 Follow the arrows or guides to take the thread from the spool to the empty bobbin.
Step 4 Start the thread around the bobbin in a clockwise direction.

Step 5 Push the small lever against the bobbin spool to hold it in place. This disengages the needle so it won't go up and down while winding the bobbin.

Step 6 Press the foot or knee pedal to start the winding process. Stop when you have enough thread on the bobbin for your project.

Step 7
Cut the thread between the thread spool and the bobbin. Insert the bobbin into the bobbin case so you can begin sewing.

Open to clarifications.
rate this.

Upper thread getting tangled in the bobbin


Always remember T-N-T. Thread, Needle, Tension. Assuming its threaded properly, is the needle all the way in and facing the right direction? These symptoms also suggest the bobbin may be in the bobbincase upside down thus turning in the wrong direction. Hope this helps.
