Thread shred. Pfaff 463. Using 120/19 new needle. And Sunguard Anti-wick UVR bonded polyester thread for marine canvas. Why is my thread shredding?


From my past sewing experience (not an industrial machine), the thread will shred if the needle/thread/fabric are incompatible. Could be the canvas is too coarse and is wearing on the thread like sandpaper. Remember, the thread/needle will penetrate over 10 times before that section of thread actually forms a stitch, so that's a lot of friction going on. In regular sewing, a top-stitch needle has a larger scarf which acts to protect the thread, however, not sure that is a choice for your machine.

How do I adjust the timing on a Singer20U109?


You can't do that yourself, you have to take to a dealer for that.

My brother cs 8072 stitch length not working.


Are the feed dogs fully up and clean?
With the unthreaded machine transport a piece of paper with the feed dogs?
Is there a presser foot pressure adjustment? -- if so, it may need tweaking.
Do you have a tangle of thread under the needle plate (= throat plate) or hook and bobbin case area?
Do you have the stitch length set to greater than 0?

My wife broke several needles on her Juki DDL 555 machine and I need to know how to adjust the timing as she put a new needle in and the point was damaged


First thing to check is if you've got the right needle system: http://partsbooks.sewingmachine.com/Instructions/Juki/Industrial/DDL-5550%20&%205530%20Instruction%20Manual.pdf and that the needle is correctly oriented... the scarf has to be precisely set.
The next things I'd check are the stitch cycle -- hand crank the machine through the normal stitch cycle and see what's hitting. Then fix that. I've got my suspicions this may be a needle bar height adjustment. Don't thread up for this test... misthreading can also cause the needle to hit something and break, so start with the fewest possible variables first.

Hi I have a pfaff industrial zig zag 428, the bobbin has stopped all rotation


bobbin case should be stationary, bobbin itself is rotated as thread unwound, check hook timing. Simply turn hand wheel towards you and watch needle go down, when it reaches lowest point turn it slowly until needle rises 3/16" or so. Hook should be behind needle and slightly above eye.

How do you adjust timing on pfaff 138 sewing machine


Take the foot off the machine
Remove the needle plate
Remove the feed dogs
rotate by hand until the needle is at the lowest position
continue rotating until the needle rises 2 mm
the hook assembly should be passing exactly by the scarf of the needle
if not loosen the two screws that secure the the hook assembly and rotate the hook assembly by hand until it is exactly at the scarf of the needle and the distance between the hook and the scarf is .1 mm (almost touching the needle)
tightened the two screws, replace the feed dogs and foot and it should sew perfectly

Consew Industrial Machine 2270 stitch length dial not working


Sounds like it is either out of time or the adjuster spring needs to be replaced.

Needle Thread breaking after about 30 seconds of quilting


Make sure the feed dogs are dropped (or feed dog cover is on - I can't remember which way this machine works). The stitch length on the machine has no function so ignore it. (I set it to zero so the machine doesn't have to work as hard). Hopefully this is all that's wrong. If not, use a shorter setting for the stitch length on the regulator, oil the hook and move slowly and smoothly.
Good luck!

Timing is off on my Pfaff 2140/2170 machine.


Basically on any sewing machine to time it you will need to separate the two gears that drive the hook. Usually loosen the set screws that attach the gear to the shaft and separate them.
Time the hook first. On center needle position, set the hook so that the point is behind the needle when the needle bar has risen about 2.5mm.
2) Set the needle bar height. Choose the needle position which is the last for the hook to pass.
(Left on most machines, right on older Vikings) At this point, place the point of the hook behind
the needle and set the needle bar height so that top of the eye is just barely below the tip of the
hook.
3) Check feed timing. Set the stitch length to the longest stitch. The needle should enter the
fabric just as the teeth drop below the surface of the plate.
