5100 printer not spooling the paper


The pick up roller has too much paper dust on it. You can use alcohol to clean it or use a special cleaning paper you can get at most office supply stores.

Embroidery machine not pulling top thread on 385.19000


White on top means that the top tension isn't right some how. Now that can be because it wasn't threaded properly with the foot in the up position... or it could mean that you've got the little thread catcher **** on your spool catching the thread and causing problems. Sometimes if it catches it will wind a few layers of thread around the thread spindle the spools sits on. That isn't readily notice until you get mad and pull the spool off.... and finally see it. LOL

Carefully examine the path of the upper thread too.

Good luck.

Upper tension when sewing fleece


This seems silly to ask but are you remembering to put down the foot? Try re-threading the upper thread with the foot raised... then try again. Make sure that your thread spool isn't catching the thread in that little thread keeper slot. Also make sure it isn't spooling in such a way that it wraps extra lines of thread around the spool pin. Also make sure you are using a Needle designed for sewing fleece.

Thread keeps on breaking whilst sewing


Could be one or a combination of the following factors:
old dry brittle thread
burr, or broken thread loop or damaged metal somewhere in the threading path that is catching the thread.
Top thread spool is catching, sometimes the thread will catch on the paper label on top of the spool or in the little knick on the spool, or if you have left a long loose loop of thread at the back and then its catching on the spool holder or some part of the machine and impeding the thread flow.
Bent, burred or blunt needle.
Needle in backwards
Incorrect threading up on top thread, maybe looped twice around take up lever?
Dirt or lint in the tension discs

I suggest you locate the manual and clean the machine, particularly the tension discs. Then oil and thread up from scratch with fresh needle, wind a new bobbin and check the thread path is correct.

If you still can't get a good stitch, then take it in for a service, tension device may be faulting.

After starting to sew the sewing machine stop. It seems to ne getting tight up at the top of the machine. It is threaded correctly. Do you have any suggestions?


This is not what you want to hear but... recheck the threading yet again. This time totally unthread it and start again. Look at the spool that holds the thread and where the thread is coming off of the spool itself. Look to see if the little notch you take the thread out of when you first open a new spool is catching the thread as it turns on the spool. If there's a possibility that is happening make sure that end of the spool is at the top. Sometimes the thread will get catch and therefore refuse to move when it is on the bottom side of the spool.

Also check to make sure the thread isn't wrapped around any of the guides and once again check to see that it is threaded correctly.

If it isn't just the thread breaking but the machine itself seeming to lock up and not move then you need to take it in for servicing.

I had my machine in the closet for 5 years and now need to sew a hem on my cotton pants. What should the settings be set at? Right now it is at a 4 and the stitch length is a 2 1/2. The thread is too...


If your machine has been stored for 5 years, you should give it a good clean and oil according to the manual before you do anything else. Then put in a new needle and wind a fresh bobbin, checking that the bobbin has been wound smoothly as a badly wound bobbin can cause poor tension and stitching from the bottom thread.

You want the thread to go from the spool through a tension disc or eyelet to the bobbin and keep some gentle tension onto the thread spool using your scissors handle or similar so that the thread winds off it smoothly and the spool doesn't bounce around. Also give the thread a nudge with your finger tip as it winds onto the bobbin so it fills evenly, top, middle and bottom, not all in the middle.

Are you wanting a straight stitch to sew around the hemline? If so, your stitch length is right, but stitch width should be zero. You don't say what knob is set to 4, if its your top tension then that should be close, usually between 4 and 6 if dial goes from zero to 10.

Which thread is too tight? top or bottom. Firstly check the threading path to ensure that the top thread isn't catching on anything, is through the take up lever properly and coming from the thread spool without catching there. Some thread spools have a little knick in the top where you can catch the thread to store it, but you dont' want the thread to catch here when seaming, so turn it around the other way on the spool so it can't.

Try test stitching a medium zig zag stitch on scrap fabric, and you'll be able to see if the bottom thread is pulling in or the top one, then adjust the tension dial a little to lessen this.

Hope these pointers help, if you can't get a good neat stitch after trying these things, then consider taking it for a clean and service, the technician can get inside and clean the machine thoroughly and also check for any other issues that might be there.

What mig welder would you I buy to restore a old car.


I always tell my customers that the best machine for a body shop is a millermatic 212 if you have 220V available if not, go to a Millermatic 211 this is one is a dual voltage unit 110V/220V. if you can afford it buy a spool gun SG100 for all aluminum parts, the machine will cost you 999.00 and the spool gun 215.00. Best investment ever for your shop.

Dot matrix printer. very light print on last page of form


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Based on your description, the printer is working, it is not a form issue, the printer head is good, an adjustment might be needed and it works, there is no reason to replace the Lexmark 2381plus printer even if it is 7 years old (not unless you would want to).

To the faint printing on the last of the 3 pages:
  • the take-up spool/wheel drawing the ribbon is not working (most likely). The ribbon is not moving hence the printer head is not striking fresh ribbon area. Check the ribbon cartridge, it may be stuck or the driving spindle where the ribbon's take-up spool/wheel locks into. It may need a bit of cleaning and/or lubrication;
  • the printer head is slightly adjusted away from the paper. Normally, there is a mechanical lever/adjustment that sets how many paper & duplicates are fed. Adjust for 1 only.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
