Most likely, the needle is not inserted correctly. You don't say what kind of machne you are using, but every one has a different needle insertion. . Some thread front to back, some left to right, and some have an indentation just above the threadhole.. Also, if the needle is not perfectly lined up, it won't thread, or sometimnes, if the bobbin is not inserted correctly, it won't thread.Check your threading diagram, and pay close attention to the needle position.Good luck!

Hi I just purchased a used Juki DDL-555. 1) It will not catch the bobbin thread. 2) it will not sew forward and feed the fabric along (it sews in reverse just fine). Can someone please help?


the material movement is set by the forward/ reverse knob or lever
not picking up the thread can be needle thread tension too loose
it can be needle hook timing

When I sew the thread doesn't catch on the hook behind the bobbin case and leaves gaps in the sewn item as much as 2-4 inches. How do I fix it? Can't afford to take it to a repair shop. Thanx, Cindy


First, install a brand new needle. A bent/damaged needle will frequently skip stitches. Also, be sure you are using the correct needle for the fabric and thread you are using, ie do not use a ball-point needle on woven fabric.

sewing machine skip stitches Google Search

If you've tried all the suggestions and it is still skipping stitches, the machine may be out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

You may have the tension set too tight or are not using the correct needle. Or, the bobbin thread may not be the same as the top thread. Also, here is a little trick. Put a piece of typing paper under the edge of the material and sew across the paper onto the material on all edges that you sew off of, to give a little stability to the material. This usually works and you can tear it off gently when you are finished sewing. Also, if the tensions are o.k., try using a ballpoint needle.

Need to now where to put tentions to sew sweat pants.


use a couple of pieces of waste material the same as the sweat pants material and sew about an inch long
adjust the needle tension and do it again
repeat the exercise until the top and bottom thread joint at the middle of the two pieces of the material
tension settings on the machine are a loose guide as the thread thickness, material thickness and needle size all have a bearing in the tensions of the thread
so practice and adjust prior to sewing is the way to go

Loose upper tension


Before you play with any tension dials... check your thread spool. If you are using an ordinary spool with the tread end catch cut into the rim of the spool and you don't orient that away from the direction of the thread travel... it can catch and cause you issues similar to what you mention.

So rethread the machine... making sure that catch is pointed toward the bottom of the spool pin and make sure that presser foot lever is up when you thread the machine.

Then do a nice long test stitch on the same type of material. If it is still giving you issues tighten the upper tension by small increments then re-test. If after a few times you still have this issue... examine the entire thread path for burrs and make sure the needle is the right type and size for your material and thread.

Good luck.

When I try to sew my machine jams a little every few seconds and is not sewing on top. When I try to remove the fabric it is stuck and there is a mess of thread underneath. I have cleaned and oiled my...


Hello,

Although you already re-theaded and cleaned your machine, re-check this:

- Un-thread your machine and remove your bobbin. Clean any loose thread or lint out of your bobbin case. Re-thread your machine, reinsert and rethread your bobbin.

If that doesn't work, try this:

- Change your bobbin.There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you sew.

- Raise your feed dogs if your machine has this feature.

Note:
when you start to sew a seam, hold the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting caught in your machine.

Hope this helps.

Hi I am pretty sure that the bobbin and the thread are in correctly but when I put the material in the needle just put holes in the material. what am I doing wrong?


you may have adjusted the upper tension and made it so tight that the thread just pulls out of the needle and needle makes holes in fabric. you might want to check the feed of the bobbin, it will not allow the machine to sew if it is not able to be picked up by the needle. the bobbin thread is usually (when held in your hand) with the thread coming counter clock wise. and then it will lay in the bobbin holder and the end of the thread will come back to about the slide catch thing and be held there until the needle thread catches it (leave the cover off the bobbin area until you watch and see what happens then. Try adjusting the bobbing tension too hope you understand what I mean here.

Bobbin thread not feeding into the upper needle thread


completely unthread the machine....ensure the needle piston shaft is in the correct position and retread the upper. reinstall the bobbin and turn the machine by hand to engage the bobbin thread. Draw the bobbin thread through the stitch plate and with the needle thread, allow to trail off the back. attempt to sew a piece of scap material.

please let me know what happens at this point.
