Try to sew slower. In my sewing class the bobbin always freezes, and if I go slower it works better sometimes.

I have acquired jones cb sewing machine.works fine except occasionally when stopped in middle of a seam wont restart but hums.will restart after turning handwheel.


Sounds like it is seizing due to old dried oil. May need a thorough cleaning and oiling. If this is the case, it would be good to avoid further use until it is repaired as continued use could damage the motor.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

I have just purchased a second hand Singer 6038. When sewing, the machine hesitates about every 15cm of sewing causing the stitch to go off centre. The tension is fine whilst trying various stitches.


I'm wondering if there is a possibility that a puff ball is getting in the tension, needle or bobbin. You might want to look at your thread in the light to see if it is fuzzy. Replace it with good, embroidery thread from someplace other than Walmart. Anyway, do a good cleanup in those areas to ensure there isn't buildup of thread.

Broke a needle, replaced it. Now stitching is all wonky. Rethreaded many times, changed both needles. Adjusted upper and lower loopers. Nothing is working. Worked fine until the broken needle


Um, possibly the machine is out of time--happens frequently when needles break. You can search the internet for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Keeps going out of line "main motor block". Had it repaired 3 times in last 6 mos.


Guess you should change repair service and ask them some warranty for repair?

I keep getting error E6 on Brothers CS 6000i- I cleaned the thread several times and when I try to restart sewing it happens again. I've removed the bobbin and re-threaded and it keep jammin and beeping....


The motor locked up because the thread is tangled.
Solution:
Remove the tangled thread before continuing the operation.
Clean the bobbin case to remove the tangled thread.
After cleaning the bobbin case, insert the bobbin case properly.
If the needle is bent or broken, replace the needle.
Then, thread the upper thread properly, and continue the operation.

Brother VX1435, needle won't move


some machines when the bobbin winder is engaged will not sew, do you
have to disengage the center wheel in the handwheel to wind a bobbin?
or do you have to just move the bobbin winder spindle to the right to
wind the bobbin?
do you have a manual for the machine?

Bobbin winder belt melted


Mine stopped working too. Gave up and wound bobbins by hand for a while until I broke down and took the machine apart -- an ordeal to figure out. I found that a pliable ring on the winder was completely disintegrated (gummy plastic-like stuff). An online search found this -- a bobbin "tire" which I THINK is the part I need: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/bobbin-winder-tire-brother-x55238051.aspx. Hope this helps. --Also cleaned all the lint out when I had the machine opened up. They don't make it EASY!

Transition to machine still pending. How do i cancel it


Canceling it takes a few steps, and you may need to do it after each time you do a design. First, close the Futura software on the computer. Then, unplug the USB cord from your machine AND the back of your computer. Also turn off the sewing machine. Do all of this before plugging the USB cord back in. Do that, then turn the sewing machine back on and restart your software. You should be fine.

For whatever reason, your last transmission gets stuck in the "buffer" between the computer and embroidery machine and this will clear it out. It happens to me each time I send a design, and I have to go through this whole song and dance to clear it. Works just fine once I do, though. Good luck!
