Frequently Asked Questions

Q) Help!
I am breaking a lot of needles and the tension is getting too tight on its own while stitching and causing the thread to break. I am learning the machine for two weeks. Is it so sensitive too wools, cottons, and fleece that this would make such a major difference in the stitching - breaking needles, breaking thread?

(A) It may not be tension that is causing the problem with your portable blindstitch. If you have broken needles it has probably left some needle burrs in the thread and needle path that need polishing off with fine emory cloth (crocus) before sewing again.

Start with a new LWx6T needle without thread or fabric. Watch the needle as you turn the hand wheel. If there is needle deflection, reduce the penetration dial until there is no needle movement. If there is needle deflection caused by burrs, they must be polished off. Check the looper tip and two arms for any needle burrs and polish off. If there is needle deflection caused by the needle track lifting the needle, lower the track very slightly with the screws on the side of the black metal bracket above the needle.

Finally, Back off on the tension dial and retighten while you are sewing with a light strong thread and light to medium weight fabric, until you get the correct tension without loops. If tension is too tight it will push the thread up so it is not all the way down between the tension discs where it belongs.

(Q) I can't understand how to finish off at the end. It
always unravels. I have read the manual and it seems simple but I
apparently just "don't get it." Any help would be appreciated.

(A) At the end of the blindhem seam, position the needle all the way to the left, then use the knee lift to remove the fabric and jerk on the fabric at the same time. That will tie off the tread and break the thread at the
needle without bending the needle. You can weave the thread tail back into the stitches or cut it off. Before the above procedure, you could also turn the handwheel counterclockwise for a few stitches, then come back to the end of the seam and repeat the first procedure above.

First get a new quality needle of the right size for your machine use a good quality hemming thread and check your tensions. If this fails to fix the problem you will probably have to have the timing checked.

you need to do a tension assembly check.

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";}Tension assembly test. To do this test. Pull the threadthrough the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is workingcorrectly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 orsomething in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through thetension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. Itshould pull noticeably harder.)
If it doesn’t work this way then you probably have a pieceof thread or lint stuck inside the tension discs. To remove it, turn thetension to 0 zero and raise the presser foot.Using a small screwdriver, openthe space between the discs and spray with canned or compressed air. The stuffshould come out. Do the tension test again to make sure you got everything andthen try sewing again.

I purchased mine from the Tacony Corporation. They also distribute/make babylock machines. Make sure you ask for the english version. There is really not much to it. They xeroxed and sent it to me. Google for their URL.

Blind hemmer is "frozen" won't move at all. What can I do?


on a normal sewing machine this usually means the threads are all snagged up in a knot in the bobbin case. Snip your threads, wriggle the fabric out, remove all snagged threads and rethread the machine. I don't know if this will work with your blind hemmer.

I agree with sylviaivie about find another repairman, they are suppose
to guarantee the work they do.
when the upper shaft is replaced & then the machine is retimed
the machine should work just fine.
but just don't take it back to that man to be repaired
here is a tip if it happens again,,
always try to cut the top thread first,
& turn the machine up on it's back to access the bottom cover
take the cover off the bottom to get access to the bobbin thread
where you can cut the bobbin thread
then you should be able to get the needle out without breaking it &
damaging the upper shaft, replace the needle & make sure
that the thread is good quality & not knotty, clean out the bobbin area of lint or thread
always change the needle on the embroidery machine every project
make sure the bobbin area is kept clean of lint or thread
clean under the needle plate at least once a week for lint if you
embroidery everyday or just often

White quilters star 1780 is running slow, how do I fix it? Have already cleaned feed dog and shuttle, what else can I do?


You can send out to repair to have it lubricated & oiled, or you can do this yourself. Not recommended though if you have pets or kids where you are working on machine. Remove needle, thread, bobbin. There are screws underneath. Don't lose them! One drop good quality oil on moving parts so lay machine back on a towel, remove screws, keep foot pedal up on table so you don't accidentally hot it with your foot. All gears that are not greasy get a very small dollop of lubricant (Singer makes a good one comes in red &white tube). All parts moving get the oe drop oil. Put plate back on, firmly tighten screws. Never lube or oil plastic parts! A drop of oil any metal screw located on top of machine. Lift machine up and if tip can be removed, you can check moving parts needing oil there and replace lid. If front section opens--left of needle bar--open it up and oil moving parts..I usually just apply one drop oil to TOP of needle bar Close lid. Put one drop oil on shuttle hook bottom left. Never oil tension discs. Run machine with scrap of fabric to get her nice and smooth sailing. If motor sounds like it's running heavy after that, take in for service, but unless motor needs replacement, you should see noticeable improvement immediately. Good luck and hope this helps!
