Two threads coming from bobbin?


try adjusting the top thread tension-one number or letter less, then
sew on a piece of the scrap fabric if you have any. to see if that helps
try changing the needle
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case, I
know this may sound crazy but it can hinder the sewing, I was sewing
a skirt the other night & I turned the bobbin the wrong way & inserted
the bobbin into the bobbin case & it didn't work good,, I took the bobbin
out of the bobbin case & had multiple threads. so I had to clean the mess up & turn the bobbin the opposite way & the machine worked
just fine

Clanking noise & won't sew


Are you sure you put the correct type of needle in? Normally, if you have any problem, cleaning and oiling will fix it. It sounds like you either didn't tighten the needle screw or you put the wrong type of needle in.

My bernina (home art edition 160) needle just hits the case where the bobbin goes in, didn't know if anyone knows how to fix this?


if you've changed the needle & it still hits the bobbin case then it's a good chance the machine is out of time & needs to be repaired

Singer Athena 2009 needle hitting plastic in bobbin case


here's something to check
is the needle inserted all the way in to the needle holder?
needle--flat side goes to the back of the machine
is the needle clamp screw tight or loose?
if the needle is correctly in the needle holder & the needle clamp screw is tight --then the needle bar is out of time & need to be serviced
IF YOU DO HAVE TO TAKE IT TO BE SERVICED AFTER YOU GET IT HOME STOP RIGHT THEN & SEW ON THE MACHINE TO MAKE SURE THEY FIXED THE MACHINE & IT SEWS LIKE IT SUPPOSE TO, I HAD ONE CUSTOMER THAT TOOK THEIR MACHINE TO A SHOP & THEY CLEANED IT AGAIN & DIDN'T FIX IT BUT CHARGED THEM FOR IT & THEY BROUGHT IT TO ME TO FIX & IT HAD TO BE RETIME
did you get a instruction manual for the machine if not check at singer
Go to the singer website
Click on customer support--there will be a drop down menu
Choose instruction manual
In the box type the model number---2009
Click search--if you don't see a manual--contact singer customer service

Shuttle hook not catching thread


it's possible that when you broke the needle it caused the machine to go out of time & only a sewing machine repair shop can retime the machine

Bernina 130. The upper needle is working but it does not seem to be abLe to catch the bottom thread. Had this machine for 12 years so I know how to put the bobbin in. Any ideas?


Firstly, I assume you've cleaned-out under the stitch-plate and after removing the bobbin, have removed the hook/shuttle, cleaned the hook race and given the hook race a drop of oil. Whilst you've got the hook/shuttle out, just check that the point is not damaged. Also, if you've got the lightweight hook/shuttle often fitted to these machines (it's black plastic with a metal outer/point), make sure there's no needle damage to the plastic - sometimes this can catch the thread as the hook rotates, preventing the loop from being picked-up. After doing that, check if you can sew straight stitch with the needle in centre, fully left and fully right. If it works in one location but not the others, there could be a number of issues such as timing/synchronisation or possibly the needle bar is offset front-to-back so that there's too large a spacing between the needle and hook.

Bobbin problems!


MAKE SURE you are using the correct SIZE bobbin. Some of the older plastic bobbins don't swap around in the newer machines & just because they LOOK the same doesn't mean they are. If you are absolutely POSITIVE you are using the right size bobbin (mark it w/ a permanent marker if you have to, to keep track of it), check & double check you are putting the bobbin in the case in the right direction & make sure there aren't any loose threads anywhere in the area where the bobbin sits... be sure all little dust bunnies are removed. I know it sounds redundant but get your book out & be POSITIVE you are threading thru all the thread paths in the right direction. My Babylock is supremely **** when it comes to putting the shuttle back in after I've cleaned the bobbin area & if I don't get it back exactly where it supposed to go, it won't sew right. I always have to get my book back & check it out again step by step. I have it do crazy stuff just because there was a little tail hanging out where the bobbin started to wind that I didn't cut off close enough.
