I need to put bobin in place but Nedle dosent take the tread up


Make sure you are using a brand new needle and that is inserted correctly (there is right & wrong way!).

If it still will not pick up the bobbin thread, most likely the needle/hook timing is off. Take it for service.

In my Janome Memory Craft 3000 my material got pulled into the area where my bobin thread comes from. I pulled it out. Now my needle is dragging but not breaking on the white piece underneath where you...


I would suggest replacing the needle, make sure the needle is correct for the fabric and thread being sewed.
sometimes when the fabric gets caught in the feed dog area, there are different reasons, I'll list some below
fabric is too thin--needs stabilizer
top thread has some off the thread take up lever
bobbin is turned the wrong way in the bobbin case
needle is damaged--replace needle with correct size for fabric being sewed--and insert the needle correctly into the needle holder.
if these suggestions don't help, I also suggest having the machine checked to see if there is some other problem like timing.

Top thread bunching under fabric when sewing


tension could be too loose. start with bobbin tension- should allow thread to pass with SLIGHT resistance. then adjust top tension at about 2-3 to start.

How can you fix the under threading of a sewing


Check the ovious things first make sure you needle isnt broken... then make sure there isnt any thread twisted inside your bobin housing. make sure bobin is inserted correctly if those things dont help it could be an issue of timing in your machine... I work as an embroidery operator in a factory setting and those things usually help..

I reloaded my bobin and began to sew. The thread


Sometimes it may look like the bobbin is the problem, when it is actually the machine was threaded with the presser foot down.

Refer to the manual for your machine and recheck the direction the thread is be feeding from the bobbin and that it is going through the proper guide(s).

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up.

When threaded with the foot down, the tension is closed and the thread cannot enter. When you sew, the stitches are loose and loopy.

Lower thread tension is too loose but no adjustment seems to work


From your description it appears that you have tried tension settings on the upper tension control adjustment knob without success.
Check that the bobin tension is adjusted correctly by taking out the bobin complete with the spool.
Pull the cotton thread and it should be a smooth light pressure if the tension is correct. If it is tight to pull or pulls freely then adjust the tension screw which is found on the outside of the bobbin. The screw is very small and requires a minature size screwdriver. The adjustment will only be a slight turn of the screw one way or the other to obtain the correct tension(depending if it was loose or tight).
Once this is set reinstall the bobin and tread up the machine, hopefully with the upper tension set at approx."2" the machine will sew correctly.

MY machine has never worked perfet liked I hoped it would. When I embroider the top thread ends up all lose and


This could be caused by many things but I would suggest that you take the machine to your local dealer for them to have a look at as the bobbin case may be the problem and they may have to replace it. If you look at the bobbin case it should be smooth all the way around - if there's rough edges then that could cause a problem. Also if the bobbin case jumps out of the socket then this is a good indication that you need to have it replaced.

My machine is locking and apparently tangling up inside of the bobin case


You also need to adjust the pressure foot on the top of the machine. This regulates how much pressure is put on the fabric and the feed. Sounds like it is wrong somehow-maybe you need more pressure. Check the pressure adjustment is screwed in properly if it is this type which unscrews.The pressure adjuster Im reffering to is generally a silver colour and looks a bit like a basic tyre pressure guage or pressure cooker valve-it just got a cuple of lines on it and sits on the top left of the machine above the needle bar. The other thing which could cause problems is the bobbin tension-make sure it is running thru smoothly but not too loose.
