Cant get machine out of neutral after threading the bobbin

I cant get the bobbin part to stop spinning and the needle to start sewing again after winding the bobbin. It just wont sew. The bobbin winder does still spin. I have the Necchi Italy Lydia3 Type 544 sewing machine. Any help would be appreciated.

    Necchi Lydia 3 542/544 - - Will not resume after changing bobbin/stuck in neutral. Have had my machine since 1973 and this is the first time this has ever happened. Really love my Necchi and hope not to have to replace it. Praying for a solution!

There should be a way to disengage the bobbin winder. I had a machine that had a switch in the center of the handwheel and even though it would be in the off position I still had to turn the handwheel till it clicked.

Wind bobbin frister rossman 420


Hi - if I understand your questions you're trying to wind a bobbin on the top, and haven't got as far as sewing yet.
To do this you usually have to put the bobbin on the top spool for it, and move that into position so that it turns.
To disengage the needle so it doesn't go up and down whilst you wind the bobbin up, on most machines you have part of the main drive wheel (on the far right) which turns against the rest of it, disengaging the part of the drive which powers the needle going up and down.
Or at least that's how it works on most machines.

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

White 2037 Bobbin thread not spinning and noticed the needle hitting bottom of bobbin casing


it's sounds like the machine could be out of time & the machine needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop, to find out for sure.

I need to know how to thread a bobbin?


TRY THIS, itma not be your model, but should help Title:
How do I wind the bobbin? windingbobbin_02.jpg
ac093.jpg Pre-tension disk ac094.jpg Bobbin winder shaft ac095.jpg Bobbin

1. Pull up the spool pin as far as possible, and then put a spool of thread on this pin. windingbobbin_a0991.jpg
2. Pass the thread around the pre-tension disk. Make sure that the thread passes under the pre- tension disk.

Caution If the spool of thread is not in the right place, the thread may tangle on the spool pin.

3. Pass the end of the thread through the hole on the bobbin from the inside of the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0993.jpg
4. Put the bobbin onto the bobbin winder shaft and slide the bobbin winder shaft to the right. windingbobbin_a0994.jpg
5. Turn the bobbin clockwise, by hand, until the spring on the shaft slides into the groove of the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0995.jpg ac099.jpg Spring on the shaft ac0991.jpg Groove of the bobbin

6. Turn on the sewing machine. windingbobbin_a0996.jpg
7. While holding the end of the thread, gently press the foot controller or press start/ stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button) to wind the thread around the bobbin a few times. Then stop the machine. windingbobbin_a0997.jpg
Note
  • If the sewing machine is to be operated using the foot controller, connect the foot controller before turning on the machine.
  • When the foot controller is plugged in, the start/stop button cannot be used to start sewing (only for models equipped with the start/stop button).

8. Trim the excess thread above the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0998.jpg
Caution Make sure you follow the instructions carefully.
If you do not cut the thread completely, and the bobbin is wound, when the thread runs low it may tangle around the bobbin and cause the needle to break.

9. Slide the sewing speed controller to the right (to set the speed to fast).
(For models equipped with the sewing speed controller.) windingbobbin_a0999.jpg ac0992.jpg Sewing speed controller
10. Press the foot controller or press start/stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button) to start. windingbobbin_a18.jpg
11. When the bobbin seems full and begins spinning slowly, take your foot off the foot controller or press start/stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button). windingbobbin_a19.jpg
12. Cut the thread, slide the bobbin winder shaft to the left and remove the bobbin. windingbobbin_a191.jpg
13. Slide the sewing speed controller back to its original position (for models equipped with the sewing speed controller). windingbobbin_a192.jpg


Caution Not winding the bobbin properly may cause the thread tension to loosen, and may break the needle.

Note
  • When the sewing machine is started or the handwheel is turned after winding the thread around the bobbin, the machine will make a clicking sound; this is not a malfunction.
  • The needle bar does not move when you slide the bobbin winding shaft to the right.

Bobbin thread tangling up


are you doing embroidery? if so turn off jump stitch cutting if possible. is the machine threaded correctly (pull needle thread out of machine and thread again with presser foot raised.

check for foreign matter in needle tension assembly. ensure there is sufficient needle thread tension.

the thread you see caught up underneath the fabric will be needle thread and indicates insufficient needle thread tension or something preventing the needle thread from being pulled up into the fabric (maybe a damaged bobbin case, or bobbin case position finger, or damaged needle plate hole).

goodluck,
scott

Jammed thread.


To address my needle thread tangling (horribly) in the bobbin compartment, I rethreaded the bobbin. I cleaned the bobbin and the feeder feet, I changed the bobbin and the thread. I changed the tension on the needle thread and the bobbin thread. NO FIX! Then, I changed the needle - the problem was fixed instantly. I sewed awhile and then put the original needle back in. No problem. I think perhaps that the problem is being caused by the needle getting out of alignment somehow during sewing. If you are having the same issue, try it. It can't hurt!

Janome 9000


I have a Janome 9000, was sewing and broke needle, replaced and broke another. I didn't have machine threaded, took out bobbin and would sew a little and stop saying thread broke. I took off top plate and started machine again, sew a little and stop saying thread broke. So I took out bobbin case and sewed again and stopped repeating the message. Everything looks OK, bobbin case and top plate. I guess I want to know if the timing could be off or do you think it is the computer part of the machine...Should I take it to the Sewing Machine Shop??
