Thread has wrapped around the inside and can not turn the fly wheel propperly

Thread came out of the thread hook and wrapped around the inside of the machine, there is no way of getting it out without taking apart. It is tight around the fly wheel post inside and now the fly wheel does not turn loosely. How do you get the front cover off the machine?

SOURCE: top thread wraps around bobbin

Is it birdnesting under the bottom or it is actually getting tangled inside the bobbin case? I've had my machine for almost a year and don't think I've had your exact issue. Sometimes, when you do a stich over a already stitched portion, you may have a problem with the bobbin and I just generally stop and start it again. It is important that you use the correct needle and also use a good embroidery thread and stablizer. Another thing suggested is changing the needle after about every 5 designs. Also, check the bobbin case to make sure there's no fuzzies caught in it. I use "canned air" like you use on computer keyboards. I also only use 40 weight emboidery thread for the top and actual bobbin thread for the bottom. Other threads can really jam everything up. So it's been trial and error to find the right combinations. Good Luck!

SOURCE: thread constantly wraps around spool pin

Cut a round curcle of fabric the size of the spool from a piece of felt. Put a hole in the middle and put it under the spool of thread. If this does not work you can purchase a small net that fits over the spool. It is designed to keep the thread from coming off the spool except for being pulled through naturally.
Hope this works.

Dear jbanistr,

My wife and I just had this same problem (or at least getting the cover off) and have a possible solution. Safety first, unplug your machine from the wall. Next remove all the screws, three by handle, three on the bottom, one on the rear of the sleeve arm, one on the light bulb cover and one inside the lightbulb cover that goes sideways into the frame. I believe that's all of them but look for any that hold plastic-to-plastic or plastic-to-metal. Take note not to change the stich settings or else you'll have to find and set the number wheel and the adjuster to match, not fun. The way we did it was starting from the top, pry the case apart slightly and with a flat screwdriver gently lift the case over the three adjusting wheels so they clear. We then, with difficulty, pried the case the rest of the way open, with a really loud pop! A better way might have been to start pring from the bottom, but it worked. Reassembly was just the reverse, just fit the top first and put all those screws back in.

Hope this helps.

check you tension on the top thread and see if you have it threaded the right way. Also see if the indent of your needle "the indent down by the hole on the needle" is facing the hook by your bobbin case that grabs the thread when it comes around.

How the bobbin loads and works with the top thread.


Turn the machine wheel slowly to watch the depth that the threaded needle travels so that it meets the approaching hook-point of the bobbin holder. Point should almost touch the needle side and grab the thread just above the eye and wrap it all the way around the bobbin and holder. If the needle extends too far, it will jam. Not far enough and it doesn't reach the turning hook.

How to deactivate the safety device on the Singer Futura SES 1000 embroidery machine? How can I get the hand wheel to turn again to get the machine to sew/embroider?


You can't--something is stopping the wheel from turning, and until you find out what is stopping it, your machine will be locked up. Take a look below the bobbin case, and you'll see a ***** holding a little door. It allows you to clean and see on the other side of the bobbin basket. Chances are, there's something like a broken off needle stopping the gear that turns the hook. It can also be caused by threads wrapped around the tension disks, or around the inside of the hand wheel itself. The hand wheel can be removed by removing the cap in the center--it is hiding a ***** that holds the wheel.

The hand wheel can't move


Brand name & model?
There are several reasons for this to happen.
1. Thread is caught around the hook gear (Bobbin case area.)
2. Rust has worked its way into a bearing and needs to be cleaned out.
3. Thread wrapped around the inner part of the handwheel.

The needle on my Pfaff 2044 won't move and the wheel won't turn. What do I do?


There may be thread caught in the bobbin area which is not allowing the hand wheel to turn. Remove the bobbin case and check the hook for threads wrapped around the spindle and/or caught in the hook mechanism. A little clear sewing machine oil in a pipe cleaner is sometimes helpful in freeing threads in this area.

Tried to thread the bobbin but the machine just have the sound but not doing anything


are you sure you followed all steps? Make sure you followed the
threading diagram correctly. You must pull your thread through a hole in the bobbin,threading from the inside of the bobbin to the out side .hold the thread on the outside of the bobbin and wrap thread around the bobbin shank twice. Hold the thread in place and find the groove on the bobbins' outside then match that to the "wire" on the spindle of the winder. You will then disconnect the drive by turning the small knob inside the hand wheel. Next ,you will push the bobbin spindle against the small wheel to create traction to turn and fill the bobbin. My guess is that either the bobbin was not in place or you forgot to push the winder against the traction area. Happy sewing.

Hand wheel won't spin?


Something is binding up inside. Clean and check under the presser foot and bobbin area. Really examine under there... look for threads wrapped around and in between moving parts. Also check in the slot for the take up lever... sometimes threads get balled up inside there can cause problems.

could also be a bent upper arm inside the machine (lets hope not) Get professional help if cleaning doesn't free it up.

I am a beginner sewer, I just purchased the Emerald 203...I can't remember how to get the bobbins threaded, I looked in the manual, but it doesn't say how to thread it or how to thread a bobbin, which is...


The Husq Vik. machines have a raised white arrow that guides you in threading and winding bobbins. There are 2 ways to wind a bobbin. The one that I prefer is by threading the machine.

Begin by raising the needle to the highest position. This is done by turning the fly wheel towards you until the needle is at highest point.

Next, Place your spool of thread on the thread spool, with the thread coming over the top like a roll of toilet paper. Make sure you have a spool cap at each end of the spool. (your mannual will tell you what the parts are if you do not know what I am talking about).

Next, take your thread to the left, you should see a "track to follow". You will go left for a very short distance, then straight down (still following in the track), when you get to the bottom of the track, you make a "u-turn" up moving the thread to the take-up-lever. If you do not see the take-up-lever, you do not have the needle in it's highest position. Hook your thread around the take-up-lever from right to left.

Then follow the track down to the needle. You have a thread guide that hooks to the left just at the top of the needle - slip the thread in that guide by moving left to right. Thread the needle from front to back.

You should have it threaded now and ready to wind a bobbin. Simply take the thread under the presser foot and to the right - make sure the presser foot is raised. Also, always make sure to use a metal, not a plastic, foot when using this method.

Hold your bobbin with the writing side (crown on it) facing up. Wrap your thread around it clockwise about 4 times. Place bobbin on the bobbin winder. (top far right of machine close to fly wheel.) Make sure it is snapped down.

Push bobbin up to engage and lock. Slowly step on foot pedal. Bobbin should begin winding. Do not wind too full. Leave about 1/16 around to allow the bobbin to move freely in the bobbin case.

If you always keep the bobbin with the writing facing up, you will never have to worry about getting it wound the wrong way.

Hope this helps

Hand wheel is hard to turn


If you take out the bobbin case and slide off the needle pate, you can inspect the bottom area for a thread jam. The black post that the bobbin case slides onto is called the thread hook. It should have a loose feel to it when you gently move it around, it should not have a "solid feel".

Another area that sometimes wraps the thread is the take up lever area.
(the lever that moves really fast up and down as the machine is sewing)
If the lever has been pushed to the left, it's possible the thread has wrapped up in that area.

If those two areas are o.k. you'll need to take it in for service.

Top thread keeps getting wrapped around bobbin case on LX-3125


You should hold the end of the thread coming through the needle until the thread has grasped the bobbin thread.

Feels like it seized up. Turns hard


You could have some cotton wrapped around your take-up arm. If you remove the cotton it should go again.
It could be needing oil on the upper shaft bush close to your flywheel. Maybey a drop of oil behind your bobbin case.

Does that model have a plastic or metal Bobbin case?
