Question about Simplicity SE3 Computerized Sewing Machine
Hello, I was embroidering a hat for my grandson when all of a sudden I had the thread ravel. I got it out ok but then the machine would not sew another stitch. I cleaned out the bobbin and I don't see any thread anywhere. Could you advise me as to what to look for?
Hi Gail4456...When you say "would not sew another stitch", do you mean that it is at a mechanical-stand-still? Or do you mean that the machine runs, but does not stitch? Please update/correct me if I am misunderstanding your issue. If your machine is 'frozen', remove your bobbin and needle. firmly grasp the balance wheel (handwheel on the right), and smoothly turn it clockwise until the jam is free, then use compressed air or brush or vaccuum to rid the now dislodged thread. Other possible causes for non-operation include: raised presser foot and/or un-depressed or faulty start/stop button. If your machine is not producing stitches: 1) Replace your needle, ensuring the slotted side is facing towards you. 2) Wind a fresh bobbin, and ensure that you are threading properly through the bobbin tension spring. 3) Completely remove your spool of thread, and slowly rethread your machine ensuring that you don't miss any guides, and that your thread isn't becoming wrapped around the takeup lever accidentaly. If you believe that you have a threading issue, do not retrace your thread. Instead, completely remove the spool and bobbin, and start again. I hope this corrects your issue my friend.
