    When mine seizes up turning the wheel often won't help. Sometimes the bobbin thread is tangled, but that's not always the problem. Help!

Im trying to see if I can fix the upper tension spring on my Necchi 3205fa machine. I think it was stretched out of correct shape.

If the spring doesn't revolve easily while it catches the thread it may be. To see what the shape should look like you can go to Ebay and type in "Necchi 3205fa sewing machine tension control". This should give you some very nice photos. You may even want to purchase one from Ebay and replace the one you are having problems with.

Need to put bobin in a merritt 4530

Flip the presser switch up to raise the presser foot. Turn the hand wheel counterclockwise until the needle is in its highest position.
  • 2Hold the hand wheel in place with your left hand while turning the hand wheel knob counterclockwise with your right hand to loosen the hand wheel knob.
  • 3Place the desired spool of thread on the spool pin so that the pin fits all the way through the hole in the center of the spool. Put the spool holder onto the end of the spool pin that is sticking through the spool of thread and press firmly to ensure that the spool holder keeps the spool in place.
  • 4Grasp the end of the thread and hold it taut between the thumb and index fingers of both hands. Snap the taut section of thread into the thread guide post located to the left of the spool pin.
  • 5Pull the end of the thread gently. Wrap the thread around the bobbin winder tension disk near the left front on top of the machine, starting at the side of the tension disk facing you and wrapping around in a clockwise direction.
  • 6Poke the end of the thread through the small hole in the bobbin from the inside out so that the loose end of the thread sticks through the top of the bobbin. Put the bobbin on the spindle, or bobbin winder, and gently slide the bobbin winder to the right.
  • 7Hold the loose end of the thread in place while pressing down on the foot pedal to start the machine. Hold the foot pedal down until the bobbin is as full as desired. The machine will automatically stop once the bobbin has reached capacity.
  • 8Cut the loose end of the thread using scissors. Slide the bobbin winder to the left and remove the bobbin. Hold the hand wheel in your left hand and tighten the hand wheel knob with your right hand by turning it clockwise

    Hi - I'm in the market for a sewing machine. I'm trying to decide between a Singer 4832C or a Necchi 3205FA. Which would u recommend? Thx.

    I used to sell necchi's, I have used necchi's for over 30 years for sewing & quiting. I own a necchi model 4595 mechanical sewing machine, & a omega by necchi, model 6150, electronic, my husband does his quiting on it.I have made clothes & quits on both machines
    I have never sold or tried a necchi 3205fa or a singer 4832c
    all I ever had were old singers, which I have gotten rid of all them
    make sure it has a operation manual with it.
    make sure you can take it back if something is wrong with it.
    happy sewing

    Was given a necchi 3205fa but no manual. can't get the machine to go forward. don't have a manual.

    Sounds like it might be the 'feed dog' the spiky plate under the foot - this drags the fabric thru - it may either be worn away or some machines you can shift it up or down
