SOURCE: Consew 206RB, threading problem?

This machine has a safety clutch which is designed to protect the hook mechanism.To access it, place the machine on it's back. About 8-10 inches from the right side you will see an assembly on the main shaft. You need to hold this assembly with a push button located on the bed of the machine while you turn the handwheel. It will click in place when it is in the correct position. Once you've done this the machine should be back in time so it will sew.Hold the top thread ,turn the handwheel and draw the bottom thread up before you begin sewing. Place a piece of fabric under the foot , turn the wheel by hand to make sure there is no binding and that the thread is being picked up.

SOURCE: Bobbin Case will not snap into housing

Insert the bobbin case without a bobbin to see if it will go all the way into the locked position. If it does,the bobbin case and basket are okay.
Check inside the bobbin basket(where the bobbin goes) and see if there is thread or lint wrapped around the spindle the bobbin case sits on. If there is, remove it. If there isn't ,then the bobbin is probably sprung and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: bobbin case and threading singer 6423

This machine has a black plastic bobbin case. You drop the bobbin down into the case with the thread coming off in a clockwise direction. If you look close you will see a slot in the bobbin case where there is the metal pieces. The thread will slide into that and as you pull on it it will work its way through and come out on the other end of the metal. Lay the thread over top of the bobbin case and turn the handwheel to pick up the thread. (make sure you close the slide plate)

My machine keeps showing the bobbin error but there is nothing wrong in the bobbin


Assuming you have threaded the bobbin case correctly, you might try using a different bobbin. There may be something wrong with it. Make sure that there is no thread sticking out of the side of the bobbin.

If there is a bobbin thread sensor, it could be dirty causing it to not read the bobbin correctly.

When you thread the upper thread, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot so the tension disk is released and the thread can seat properly.

My husqvarna 870 fix but stays on causing the machine not stitching


What you have is commonly called "bird nesting" or "thread nesting" and is usually caused by the upper thread. Most times the thread is not seated in the tension disk, the machine is not threaded correctly (sometimes the thread will jump out of the take-up lever or a thread guide), or the upper tension is too loose.

1. Install a brand new needle.

2. Remove the thread from the machine.

3. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify that the thread path is correct.

4. Load the bobbin in the bobbin case (make sure it is spinning the correct direction), thread the bobbin case, and install it in the machine.

5. Set the upper tension to the midway point.

6. Test your machine. You may need to tweak the tension a bit, but tension is not static and should always be tested and adjusted for the fabric, needle & tension of every project. The tension is correct when the upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

If it continues to be a problem, you may consider taking it for service.

The needle with top thread couldn't draw the bottom thread from the bobbin to ready the machine for sewing


Are you saying that the upper thread is not pulling the bobbin thread up to the top?

Install a brand new needle.

Remove the thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning--allows the thread to seat completely in the upper tension disk.

Check that the bobbin thread is inserted in the bobbin case facing the correct direction and that the bobbin case is threaded correctly through the bobbin case tension. Be sure to leave at least a 6" tail of thread on both the upper and lower threads.

Retest.

If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread, the bobbin case may be defective/malfunctioning or your machine probably needs professional service.

What makes the stitches loose? How do I make them tight?


You should have a tension knob (1 to 10) on the machine, the lower the number the tighter the tension.

My lower bobbin thread commes up in verry loose stitches and breaking


Make sure you are threading both the top and bobbin correctly. HINT: Before you thread the upper thread, RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat properly in the tension disk. Is your upper thread so tight that it is actually pulling the bobbin thread up? It also could be that either the bobbin case tension needs to be tightened, or the bobbin case itself could be broken (you can buy a replacement).

Also, try installing a brand new needle and changing thread brands. Avoid old, fuzzy, or bargain bin threads.

What adjustment do you need to make when the bobbin is throwing too much thread out.


Your tension is is too loose somewhere I guess, so will need tightening. Tighten the upper tension first to see if that helps before tackling the spring on the bobbin. If you need to tighten the spring on the bobbin then do it in tiny increments and remember where you started. Try taking out the bobbin and gently pulling by hand the thread from it; it should have a slightly tight feel on the correct tension..

While threading my bobbin, the thread slipped under the bobbin seat and got stuck. I can't dislodge it, and my bobbin won't thread. How can I fix this?


can't figure out what you mean, what bobbin seat, do you mean on the bobbin case? maybe on the post where the bobbin case goes? I guess you just have to work on getting the thread off and start over.

Bobbin case inserting wrong


I suspect the "housing" you refer to is not seated completely. Be sure to wiggle it until it slips into place. Once it is seated, the bobbin case should seat firmly as well.
