    The problem is there doesn't seem to be an easy way to get the thread into the compartment under the foot to enable the needle thread to pick up the cotton from the bobbin.  the printed instruction spend more detail on threading the needle! I'm sure it must be easy but it's totally confused me at the moment.

    The adaptor is in, the plug works. it doesn't go at all. The light won't even come on.

You have to make sure the bobbin thread is positioned right in the middle. When the needle comes down (into the bobbin compartment), you can peer into the bobbin compartment and see a loop of thread (coming out of the needle). You want to catch that bobbin (thread) in the loop of thread (that runs from the needle).

Prolectrix 8 stitch sewing machine top thread keeps getting caught round bobbin housing and jamming everytime i try to use it


Sounds like the take-up lever is not threaded.

Remove the thread from the machine, turn the handwheel until the take-up lever is at its highest position, raise the presser foot and rethread the machine. Set the upper tension dial to 5 and retry.

Bobbin unravelling on prolectrix 8 stitch sewing machine


did you put the bobbin thread in the tensioner? that would be the cut in the side of the bobbin case to pull the thread under the tensioner. if not it will cause problems. but if the top thread is looking good then the top thread is the problem, thread the machine with the presser foot up to let the thread into the tensioner, if it looks good on the top and not the bottom it is the upper thread if it looks good on the bottom and not the top it is the lower thread

Bobbin thread not feeding into the upper needle thread


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 needle won't pick up the bobbin thread


My sewing machine is a Brother LS1217, well actually it is my son's, and he uses it very seldom. I went over to put in a new needle and I cleaned it top and bottom, put in a new bobbin, and a new needle and the needle won't pick up the bottom thread. What am I doing wrong? Please help me!! It has to be something simple, as this is such a simple machine! roseandjimmy@yahoo.com
