Question about New Home Sewing Machines
Every time I start to sew the machine jams up. I have taken it apart & cleaned it, adjusted the tension, changed the needle. What else can I do?
Try ebay for the parts you need
make sure the needle is the right one for the fabric being sewed
make sure the top thread has not come off the thread take up lever
try a different bobbin---make sure it's turned the right way in the
bobbin case--and if it's a front or side loading bobbin,,make sure
the bobbin case is inserted correctly
if none of my suggestion help then I suggest having the machine
checked for a timing problem.

You may need to take off the housing that covers the whole dog mechanism. You will need a screwdriver to do this. Blow out the area around the tension gears and dogs, check for loose or disconnedted parts, and re-oil the gears. Fleece fuzz usually collects where you can't see it. This was the problem with my machine that had the same symptom.

SOURCE: looping underneath
I watched a 'You Tube' demo that showed ........if you loosen or tighten the very small screw at the base of the bobbin this gives you the correct tension & stops the looping under the fabric........I didn't even know this screw existed ! It is trial & era at first re the correct tension but you do get there.... the art is to do it in small mini stages.....like you hardly move it ! Thanks to 'You Tube' I can now get on and finish my drapes !

If the machine is now threaded, lift the presser foot.
Now, pull about 10" of thread through the needle.
The next time you thread the machine, lift the presser foot first.
When the presser foot is up, the tension control opens and allows the thread to "seat" into the control, then when the foot is down the control closes to the indicated setting.
When threading the machine with the foot is down, thread does not enter the tension control and when you start to sew, there is no tension on the thread.
No tension = loosey, goosey, loopy stitches underneath.
Because the lack of tension on the top thread, the bobbin thread cannot lock a proper stitch.

This is a top tension issue, you need to check two things,
-make sure you thread the machine with the pressure foot up ( this allows the tension discs to open up so you can pull the fabric away from the machine with the foot up and allows the thread to get to bottom of the tension discs)
-make sure your tension settings are set to the medium setting. (Usually 4 or 5)
If this still does not help, then turn the top tension knob up (from 5 to 6,7,8,9....)
-If that still doesn't do it, your probably need the tensions reset, and your local family sewing store will be able to assist you further.
