Question about White Sewing Fashionaire Sewing 2380 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Bobbin thread not feeding into the upper needle thread

New machine, White 2380, purchase for my granddaughters to teach them to sew.

We started sewing today on this machine and it has worked fine until I got going fast. I noticed the thread was not going into the material to make a stich. I stopped, checked the threading on my needle and the bobbin thread.

Closer examination showed the upper and lower threads are not locking together. I cannot get the bobbin thread to loop into the needle thread so I can sew. I've checked the threading pattern and it is correct.
The bobbin has plenty of thread and it is inserted correctly.
If anyone can help me asap I would appreciate it. The granddaughters are making pillowcases for their parents and have only 1 more day to complete a project before they leave to go home.

Thank you,

    I did all of the above 3 times. The machine is threaded properly. As I watch the needle drop down into the bobbin casing, the needle comes back up, with the appropriate small loop in it where the bobbin thread should have pulled through. The bobbin thread does not draw up into the needle's loop.



    I'm really frustrated! Any other suggestions?



    Thank you!

Completely unthread the machine....ensure the needle piston shaft is in the correct position and retread the upper. reinstall the bobbin and turn the machine by hand to engage the bobbin thread. Draw the bobbin thread through the stitch plate and with the needle thread, allow to trail off the back. attempt to sew a piece of scap material.

please let me know what happens at this point.

My viking emerald 118 machine just started breaking needles and the bobbin thread will not hold. YOu can pull the bobbin stitch out by pulling the thread.


Check the upper tension by lowering the presser foot and pulling on the thread through the needle. You should feel resistance. If not, take a stiff brush and clean out the tension disks/dials removing any loose threads or lint. If upper tension is ok, check bobbin tension by pulling thread through needle plate opening. You should feel resistance. If not, remove bobbin case and brush any loose threads or lint from the case, especially in the tension spring where the thread is snapped into place. You may need to use a sharp needle to dig in between the spring but be careful that you don't damage it.

I have a brother sewing machine. i threaded and have rethreaded and threaded the bobbin over and over. it will not move the fabric and botton thread will not catch onto top. what am i doing wrong?


Brother machines are usually a very good brand. Sounds like you are having a small problem with threading..........I know how frustrating that can be!
Start over....totally from the beginning. First, clean the machine of all dust, I use a small paint brush to remove lint from the bobbin case area. Oil the machine. Remove all the thread from the machine, use a different bobbin and rewind it with new thread. Make sure the bobbin thread is the same as the thread you use to thread the upper needle with. Use a new needle that is the appropriate size for your sewing project. Check to make sure the feed dog is moving when you turn the wheel that raises the needle up and down. New needle, new bobbin, new thread......before you place the fabric under the presser foot (and with the presser foot raised), turn the wheel one complete rotation to allow the upper needle thread to catch the bobbin thread. Gently pull both threads out towards the back of the machine, making sure the bobbin thread is now coming up through the little hole in the feed dog plate. Place fabric under the presser foot, lower presser foot and as you slowly start to sew, make sure you have the bobbin thread pulled with slight tension out from the back of the needle. This will take up any slack in the bobbin thread and keep it from making a knotted mess. Good luck, I hope this helps.

I have a WHITE 3300 EMBROIDERY MACHINE and the thread bunches up at the bobbin site. I have tried a new needle, adjusted upper thread tension , changed bobbin threads and nothing helps, it keeps bunching...


Refer to your machine for cleaning the bobbin area.

You will need to clean this area often as lint and thread snips can build up can cause the bobbin feed to malfunction.

If this continues after you have cleaned the machine, the timing may need to be adjusted by a sewing machine tech.

My prdect is fashionaire 2380.when i'm sew somthing it's break the thread,and it's stack


Check the thread spool to see if there is a nick where the thread is catching. If there is, you can smooth away the nick with an emery board, or just flip the spool so the thread is feeding from the bottom of the spool.

Sometimes the thread feeds too quickly from the spool and puddles around the spool pin. A thread net (can be purchased online or at a sewing machine dealer) can eliminate this.

Check the threading to be sure it is correct - always thread to top thread with the presser foot up.

Check the bobbin to be sure the thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the correct guides.

Refer to your manual for threading and bobbin position.

White sewing machine, model 1777, the needle gets bent, bobbin makes a mess when sewing, won't fed fabric


Oh yuck! this sounds terrible. Sounds like maybe you have two problems going on and feeding into each other. The first problem may be that the machine needs a good cleaning Here's what I'd do:

1. Take apart the bobbin assembly and clean it out completely.
2. Take off the feed dogs if you can (first, you'll need to take off the throat plate.) Clean the feed dogs as thoroughly as possible.
3. Brush out any/all lint, threads, dust, etc.
4. Oil the machine.
5. Make sure you're using the right size needle for the fabric
6. Make sure you're using the right presser foot

The other problem may be that the needle is hitting the throat plate or something else it shouldn't. Using a new needle, slowly move it down to see where it's hitting or rubbing. Check that the needle is inserted as far in as it will go and that it's being held securely.

When you start sewing, hold the upper thread and the bobbin thread together behind the needle so there's no slack. This usually prevents 'bird nests'.

Hope this helps!

Brother 3022 Mechanical Problem


Make sure your needle is in correctly. Check your threading again. If that does not work, remove throat plate, install new needle, turn hand wheel until needle is at its lowest position and observe if the hook is exactly behind the eye of the needle. If that is correct then you do not have threaded correctly. If it is not then the machine needs to be re-timed.
