Check to make sure the thread is between the tupper tension disc's, from your description there is no tension on that thread.

On my Singer 9960 quantum machine when I sew a straight stich it is gathering my material. then I have to pull the material to straighten it out so it is not gathered. How do I fix?


Sounds like the tension is too tight. If it is light-weight fabric, you may need to loosen the tension some to keep it from puckering or add some stabilizer to add some bulk to the fabric, ie add some washaway stabilizer to the fabric seam when stitching, or even a sheet of paper will help.

When i use the zig zag stich, sometimes the stich falls and does not zig zag


try a new needle--one for the fabric being sewed

could be a problem with the cam that does the zig zag, you might need to have the machine checked

if your sewing with light weight fabric also try using stablizer

Keeps breaking needles


Slow down and watch what you sew over.
No needle is going to sew through the metal part of a zipper.
With many layers of fabric you have to slow down. If you have multiple layers of a thick fabric you may have to resort to using the hand wheel to get through the layers.
Another tip would be to not pull on the fabric. The machine is capable of "feeding" the fabric at the rate it requires. When sewing with many yards of fabric the weight of the fabric may create a pull on the needle. If the needle is pulled so that it no longer goes through the need plate properly it will hit the metal of the needle plate and break. Instead rest your hands on either side of the fabric and gently steer the fabric. Do not pull it out of the back of the machine or shove it into the needle. With large yardages wad up the fabric around the machine so that the weight of the fabric isn't causing strain around the needle.
One other tip. If you have a needle plate in your machine that only supports straight stiching, that is one with a needle hole that is just big enough for the needle to move up and down, and you switch to a zig-zag stitch, you will break the needle. Most factory installed needle plates have a needle hole large enough to support the largest zig-zag that the machine can support. But some machines have custom needle plates (for quilting) that only support a straight stitch.

When iam stiching the bobbin thread is not interlocking with the pool thread ,the straight stich is not stiching properly


Do you have thread in your bobbin?
Is your needle fully inserted in the needle bar?
Is it the right needle for the machine?
Is your needle damaged, bent or dull?

Thread jams


Hi! I've had this happen to me many times and it is so very frustrating! First, take the bobbin out and also the bobbin assembly and clean the entire area of all lint, fuzz, little bits of thread....get it as clean as you can. Take out the upper thread too. Clean and oil. Change the needle. Make sure you're using the appropriate size and type of needle and thread for the fabric. Take off the needle plate and look for any nicks or scratches. If you've got them, you can get emery cloth from a good hardware store (often in the plumbing department) and polish them out (or mostly out).

Rethread the machine, carefully following the instruction manual. Use your basic, normal settings. Using a scrap of the fabric you're trying to gather, sew a seam and see if everything works ok. You may need to hold the top and bobbin thread firmly behind the needle as you sew the first few stitches (I find this little trick helps a lot to prevent birdsnests).

To gather, sew three parallel lines of long, basting stitches (you really don't need a special foot or special settings other than to make the stitch a long one). Don't backstitch, reverse, or lockstitch either end, and leave the thread long when you cut it. Pull the three bobbin threads and the fabric with gather nicely along them.

Something to keep in mind--if you're trying to gather very sheer fabric on a zigzag machine, you may need to replace the throat plate with the zigzag hole for a throat plate with a single, small hole for a straight stitch. I've run into this situation before, and ended up using one of my antique straight-stitch only machines to do the gathering.

If you don't have a throat plate with the single hole, you might try some light weight interfacing to give some density to the sheet fabric.


Hope this helps!
