Needle raises before race foot can catch the thread.

So, bobbin thread does not come up, therefor you get no stitches.

How do i fix the top thread just tangling, looping on the shutter race?


1. Make sure that you are using the right bobbin case. (LX3125) 2. Adjust the tension of the bobbin case. (I've sent a guide for this) Your's is considered the older style.
3. Make sure the bobbin that is used is the right one. If it is too long or too wide it will cause problems.
4. When you insert the bobbin case make sure the lock handle goes down flat with the bobbin case. Also, feel the bobbin case for rough snags.
5. Replace the needle. Insert it the new one in the right direction.
6. Thread the machine (while pressure foot up) according to the directions. While threading give small tugs to check for snags.
7. Place the tension on four. It is ok to feel by hand if this is excess tension.
8. While turning the hand wheel towards you the bobbin thread should rise above the throat plate.
9. This should be ok now. Try it on some old rags. Don't forget to set that bobbin case.

Bottom stitch skips stitches


MY FIRST THOUGHT IS THE TIMING IS OFF A LITTLE. BEFORE SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY FOR A REPAIRMAN TRY THESE POSSIBLE CURES:
1. TRY TO SEW WITH THE NEEDLE ALL THE WAY TO THE LEFT AND THEN TRY IT ON THE RIGHT. IF ONE OF THE TWO SEWS BETTER THAN THE OTHER YOU CAN BE ASSURED IT IS THE TIMING WHICH MEANS YOU NEED A REPAIRMAN.
2. JUST FOR GOOD HABITS DO THESE BEFORE GOING TO THE REPAIRMAN: CHANGE NEEDLE AND THOROUGHLY CLEAN THE BOBBIN AREA WITH CANNED AIR AND A QTIP TO CLEAN DIRT OUT. AFTERWARDS PLACE A DROP OF SEWING MACHINE OIL ON THE RACE THAT YOUR BOBBIN CASE FALLS IN.
3. PLACE TWO INCHES OF THREAD UNDER THE PRESSER FOOT. TURN THE HAND WHEEL TOWARDS YOURSELF AND WATCH IF THE UPPER THREAD WRAPS ON TOP OF THE BOBBIN CASE WHILE THE NEEDLE IS RISING. THE THREAD SHOULD PULL AROUND THE BOBBIN CASE WITHOUT CATCHING ON THE BRACKETS THAT HOLD THE BOBBIN CASE. IF IT DOES CATCH A LITTLE BIT YOU MAY NEED TO MOVE THE BRACKET AWAY FROM THE BOBBIN CASE ABOUT ONE PAPER WIDTH.

How do i thread my friends machine. It jams every time she starts sewing. Its a husqvarna 200


I can't find a threading diagram for the 100 but this one is for several other husq models, so could be very close for your friends.

http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Viking_Sewing_Machine_threading/Viking_150_185_190_Threading_Diagram.htm

Make sure that the bobbin is going into the bobbin case as per the diagram and is into the tension spring. The bobbin needs to turn anticlockwise when you pull on the thread tail when looking at the bobbin inside the case.

There is also a little springlatch on the bobbin case, you need to hold this to release it from the rotary hook to take out. If this isn't working correctly, it will pop out so you'd need to replace the bobbin case.

Now check the top threading too. ALWAYS raise the pressure foot to open up the tensions. And turn flywheel towards you until needle is at highest position. Now follow the threading diagram ensuring the thread does into each eyelet, then down the needle bar and into the needle eye.

Check tension knob number, should be between 4-6, usually 5.

Raise bottom thread manually through the needle plate by holding top thread tail and turning flywheel towards you through one revolution, catching the bottom thread and pulling it up through the hole in the needle plate.

Make sure that you have a new needle in, flat shank to the back, and the right size for fabric you wish to sew, sharp for wovens, ball point for knits.

Now select your stitch, place fabric under foot, lower pressure foot and while holding both threads behind the foot, start stitching. Hopefully, it will now sew for you.

If you can't get the bottom thread to come up at all then its likely that the timing is out and it will need a service.

How do i thread my needle with the singer handy stitch?


  1. Loosen needle screw & insert needle with shank's flat side facing front of machine. Push needle in all the way, then tighten screw to hold needle in place.
  2. Install a fully wound bobbin by loosening bobbin nut & placing bobbin on top. Re-attach bobbin nut & tighten. If standard thread spool will be used, then attach spool pin to bobbin shaft & place thread spool onto shaft. Attach white spool cap on end of thread spool, then tighten. Bobbin/spool should unwind facing forward toward needle.
  3. Bring end of thread through thread guides & over tension control. Pass end of thread through needle eye, from back to front, & pull it out about two inches.
  4. A spring pushes pressor foot onto fabric that is being sewn, so lift pressor foot & place fabric underneath.
  5. Turn large handwheel on side of machine (handwheel can be turned in either direction) to raise needle arm to its highest position.
  6. Holding the Handy Stitch in place with your right hand, press on power switch & begin sewing. Guide fabric (being sewn) with your left hand.
  7. To end this sewing session, turn off power. Turn handwheel to raise needle to its highest position. Carefully pull out about three inches of thread through needle & snip, then lift pressor foot to remove fabric. Turn fabric over & loop needle threader through last stitch. Place end of thread from underside through eye of needle threader, & pull to loop through. Pull to tighten and snip end of thread.

Thread jams in bobbin case


Open the bobbin area and make sure it is clean.

Change to a new needle.

Thread the machine with the presser foot up.

Make sure the bobbin thread is feeding in the correct direction from the bobbin spool and through the guide on the bobbin case.

Take hold of the end of the top thread and lower, then raise the needle to pull the bobbin thread up.

Take hold of both thead ends and pull them under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Place fabric under the presser foot. Lower and hand walk the first couple of stitches.

When sewing, and you need to stop to adjust the fabric, make sure the needle is down into the fabric. This will keep the stitch from malformation and causing a possible tangle.

If you need a manual, you can download one free at the Brother website.

Hd-110 can't pull up the bobbin thread


If the needle will not catch the bobbin thread, try replacing the needle and make sure the flat side of the needle shaft is facing the back of the machine.

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up.

Lower and raise the threaded needle, while holding onto the end of the thread. This will pull up the bobbin thread.

Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the sewing machine.

Hand Walk the needle a couple of stitches before using the power pedal.

Can not get the brother XL2600i to stitch the top thread does not catch the thread coming out of the bobbin. so it does not stitch


Make sure the needle has been properly installed - flat side to the back of the machine.

Thread the top thread with the presser foot up - always.

Make sure the bobbin thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the correct guides.

Hold onto the thread tail at the needle and lower (by hand and not the power pedal) and raise the needle to pull the bobbin thread to the top of the machine.

Take both thread tails under the presser foot and to the back of the machine before you begin to sew.

Not catching stitches / bobbin correctly


When you broke the needle I think you have moved the shaft that brings the needle down ,you can adjust it !
