I was trying to sew through some very heavy material, and my needle got stuck. Now, when I try to sew, the bobbin thread will not feed properly and just gets bunched up under the plate.

How do I raise the feed dogs


Make sure that your top and bobbin thread are the same and that the tension is set correctly. Then, be sure that the bobbin is put in correctly. If this happens when you are starting on an edge of your material, try putting a piece of material or even a piece of paper, like typing paper, under the edge of the material and sew a little beyond that and then onto your material. You can tear it off later. It gives stability to the edge of the material and should alleviate the problem. I hate when that happens! And, last but not least, be sure you are using the right needle. I love the ballpoint needles for most sewing projects.

Bobbin thread will not pick up


Ensure the bobbin thread is mounted on correctly and using your right hand turn the gear that makes the needle go up and down until it catches the thread.

My material gets stuck in


check and see if the feed dogs are above the needle plate when the needle is in the upright position, then check and see if you have tension in the upper and lower tension units, check this by putting the foot down and gently pulling on the upper thread and pull the lower thread up through the plate and see if it pulls easy or hard if hard then it is good one last thing are the feed dogs in the raised position

Can the consew 339rb-1 be used only with 1 needle?


this is the specifications for the 339rb-3. they sould be close to yours, if you can put two seperate needles in and the machine hase one hook and bobbin case then I would say you can use one needle, if you have two hooks and bobbins, I would say no, you may want to thread with one and just hand turn for a few stiches to sew hoe it reacts, leave the bobbin door open so you can watch the hook.

Bobbin area will not work


There should be a spinning cover with a hook that fits over the bobbin. Normally, you just pull the bobbin thread out through the swinging/sliding plate hole. Turn the machine by hand toward you (at the top) until the needle dives into and comes back with both threads. Separate the threads and assuming that the thread tension above the needle is set correctly, feed a piece of material in to see if it sews correctly. The tension is set so that the thread is even on both sides of the material. Let the machine pull the material through at it's own pace, your function is to guide the material.

Time janome 3018?


when you say 'bobbin thread bunches' i take it that when you look at the underside of what you have sewn it looks messy. if this is the case and the machine is threaded correctly and the the needle thread is tight enough to bend the needle a little when pulled (with presser foot down) it will most likely be that you need to increase needle tension (maybe to max) when sewing thick fabrics with thicker than normal thread.

if the the needle does not bend a little you may not have the thread in between the tension discs, or there may be thread or lint caught in the tension discs preventing proper tension (try pulling a thin rag through the tension discs to dis-lodge any foreign matter).
