Does anybody having problem with the machine ? Because whenever i try to sew it keep jamming ? Is there anyway I can fix or whatever ?


Change everything! Rewind the bobbin with new thread and correctly...the thread should be evenly distributed on the bobbin and wound on slowly or it will be too tight. Use a new needle and be sure it is facing the correctly and not backwards ( needles have a front and back). Clean out the bobbin case with the little pipe cleaner brush. Rethread the machine and make sure it hits all the stations ( uptake lever, tension discs, etc...) and make sure the thread is unwinding in the correct direction( clockwise on some machines and counterclockwise on others) check the manual. Exhausting but usually works! Good luck!

Everytime I go to sew the thread always knots up


Likely your upper thread tension is too light and/or the proper thread routing is not right on the machine. Your bobbin might also be wound backwards.

You receive the error message E6 when the motor locked up because thread is tangled or the machine is seizing up.

Remove the tangled thread, it it still happens that means your machine is seizing and requires service.

Cant get my bobbin in right position it keeps knotting up on inside of fabric


Top thread problem, Not enough tension on top=loops on the bottom of the fabric; too little tension on the bottom = loops on top of the fabric. Yes, I know it seems backwards. See: http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/22521551
Dollars to donut holes, you either threaded the top of the machine with the presser foot down (it has to be UP to let the thread into the top tension), or you're trying to sew with the presser foot still up (which is an issue common to people trying to sew bulky seams).

Take the thread off the top of the machine, take out the bobbin case and give the machine a cleaning, rethread the machine, fetch up the bobbin thread and hold the bobbin and top thread ends together under and behind the presser foot for the first 2-3 stitches of each seam.

I have a newish 2nd hand dc3050. The needle keeps coming unthreaded. Any ideas?


Have you got the thread through the take up lever correctly? If its not threaded this will cause the needle thread to be pulled backwards. Just recheck all the threading paths from spool to needle have been done correctly.

Thread is knotting up on bottom of fabric causing it to stop


1.check the needle & see if it's bent--if so replace
2.lay the needle on a flat surface & roll the needle over if it doesn't roll true replace
3.check for blunt needle-if needle makes a popping sound when needle penetrates fabric
4.needle is not all way up in holder
on my mechanical sewing machine sometimes the threads come off the take up lever, that causes the thread to bunch up under something I'm working on
also check thread in bobbin

My machines motor is running backwards... It won't sew this way and I don't know why it started doing this... Any ideas??? I was sewing and nothing of note happened, it just stopped picking up the bobbin...


It is unlikely the machine motor is running backwards it is more likely to be the reverse button or lever, have you checked it and if it is not picking up the thread have you cahnged the needle.

I have a Juki DDL-555. I think there is a problem with the timing. The thread on the top keeps coming out from the needle and in the bottom thread is loose and puckered. Some stiches are ok but most are...


Try putting the bobbin in the other way, you may have it backwards, also you have to pull the threads out at least 6-inches from the needle before you start sewing or the thread uptake lever can pull the thread out of the needle.

Your problem is a simple one.Jamming is due to thread getting trapped on the bobbin holder.All you need to do is to unscrew two screws holding the the bobbin holder clean the same and reasseble it.your problem will be solved.N.Govindarajan
