Question about Sewing Machines
After I thread the machine properly, the thread will not pull through. I have adjusted the tension many different ways and nothing helps. It feels like the thread is catching on something. It has sewn a few times, but it keeps getting caught up in the threading mechanism and breaking. Or just not pulling at all. I got it for Christmas 2012. It is brand new.
If you definately have it threaded up properly, follow the thread all the way through the route of "threading up"there could easily be a bit which is catching, or try another thread I have found a lot of low quality threads about

Make sure all of your threads are in between the tension dials. Sounds that the machine isn't catching because of the tension. Good Luck

Hi, Liz. When you adjust your tension, be sure the pressure foot is down. The pressure foot needs to be up when you thread the machine so the thread will slip easily between the tension disks, but when you adjust the tension the disks have to be tight (pressure foot down).
There are other possibilities, but this is the best place to start running the problem down. Please let me know if this does the trick, ok, and if not, we can try something ele.
