Try checking to make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into
the bobbin case
make sure the bobbin is not inserted into the bobbin case backwards
if the bobbin is not in backwards and the bobbin is inserted correctly
then the hook and hook race should be checked by a repair
shop to see if they are damaged

Why does everything get hot except electrosurge wire tip for cutting?


A couple of possibilities:
1. Remove the belt. While using the foot pedal it is necessary to see if the motor moves freely without excess heat. If there is a problem the motor must be replaced or fixed.
2. Try to turn the machine without the motor attached by using the hand wheel. Does it move freely? If this is a problem the part that is causing the resistance must be found. Especially check the hook (under the bobbin case), needle arm and monitor moving parts.
3. Is the belt in good shape? If it is not so good then replace it.
4. While the belt is attached the motor must be cocked to allow the least resistance and most speed while the motor is running. This must be done carefully while the motor is running slowly. (foot control) The adjustment can be done most accurately this way.
5. Clean and oil all moving parts.
6. Make sure the bulb is the right size and not touching any of the metal surfaces.

Is the bobbin supposed to move on the Bernette Deco 600?


The bobbin will move only when the thread is being pulled. The problem with your machine is that the timing has missed aligned. It will need service. 99% of all sewing machine misalign due to continued use.

Problems threading the bobbin, the motor is running but bobbin doesn't move


Most likely its the bobbin winder tire, under the lid, where you put the bobbin to wind it. Depending on the machine you have, it can be accessed by the side panel or possibly the top. On the right side of the machine, there should be a couple screws that will need removed, (make sure you unplug it first), and the panel will come off and you should be able to see the rubber ring from there. If not, then, you may have to take the top off to access it, in the same way. Once you have access to the ring, just pop it off and replace it with a new one. If the old one was worn, then, when you engaged the "clutch", it wasn't "catching", in order to spin. When in doubt refer to your owners manual, or paper work that came with the machine. It usually gives a break-down of how all the parts are arranged, and might simplify/clarify, "things" before you start. Hope this helps.

When turning the wheel the needle doesn't move, I am trying to pull the bobbin thread up but when I turn the hand wheel everything moves except the needle


Ya, that's not good. Sounds like a set scew on the shaft has come loose (hopefully), other wise, could be looking at broken gears and that is more extensive. Take it to a service tech, or your Janome dealer

Using a Pfaff Hobbymatic 935. Needle will not move, mechanism around bobbin will not move. Everything is locked in place. Tried cleaning everything, removed the needle (to get the fabric out of the way),...


It is likely the the bobbin holder is jammed up with cloth or thread. Take the bobbin holder out and turn the machine by hand, if it does not move it could have a broken timing belt or slipping coupling.

While sewing the bobbin case moves, wheel locks up, needle locks


Im not sure if this will help but thought I would pass it along. My Pfaff 6122 tells me to check bobbin for thread unrolling clockwise before you place it back in the machine. I had mine turned to un roll counter clockwise, this is wrong, the bobbin will fall out when you pull on the thread while you are holding it in your hand. You may just keep putting it in backwards. Hope this works for you. J.R.

My singer athena 2000 won't pull the bottom thread up to form a stitch. I know this is an OLD machine and I couldn't find the right selection from the list My Singer Athena 2000 sewing machine was...


I think if you watch the hook as you turn the wheel you will see that it is not moving.If it's not moving it can't pick up the thread or sew or wind the bobbin. If you really like this machine you can take it to a technician who is going to tell you you have a broken gear.Always have them replaced in pairs. On this machine there are 2 gears( 1 Pair) on the left and 2 gears( 1 Pair) on the right. If the machine is making buzzing noises, replace the machine instead of the gears. Singer makes a nice machine which sells for around $300 which will do more than the one you have and it is easier to use. Look at Model 7467. I sell quite a few of these and they don't give me or my customers problems.
