    I have a New Home Combi 222 that I want to sell. Has Instruction book. It looks like it is in excellent condition, but I don't know if it works because I have never used it. Might be a great deal for parts, etc. Will send pictures if you are interested.

Machine dropping stitches


Skipped stitches
1. A bent or dull needle
2. The wrong needle for your fabric
knit fabrics require a jersey or ballpoint tip. Most wovens do well with a universal tip, and specialty fibers, like leather or metallic, usually require specific needles.
3. Incorrect machine threading
4. Unbalanced needle thread tension
Start by making relatively small changes and run a test stitch to evaluate the impact. If you need to adjust the tension dial using woven cotton fabric with good quality all-purpose thread and a new needle
5.check the needle is inserted correctly. The needle needs to be pushed as far up the needle shaft as possible. It's easy to insert the needle half way, clamp it down and think it is inserted correctly.
the flat part of the needle should be positioned towards the back. If the needle is not inserted correctly, it will not be able to pull up the bobbin thread and will cause skipped stitches.
6. If the suggestions don't help then it is time for a tune-up.

My sewing machine's needle holder has got very loose and i can't stitch any of my clothes.any suggestions?


Hi! Just to clarify, are you saying that the needle CLAMP--the thing that holds the needle in place--is no longer holding the needle firmly? If so, the screw is most likely stripped, and that can happen over time. A new clamp can be ordered and you can easily install it yourself; if you take the screw entirely out, the whole thing should slip off the shaft, allowing you to slip on the replacement. A good place for parts is www.sewingpartsonline.com. I looked there under your model number and that part is not listed, but if you will give them a call, they will be happy to order it for you--they are very nice people to deal with. It is also quite possible that a clamp that will fit your machine is listed under another model number, and it already in stock. It generally takes two weeks or less to get a part, though, and needle clamps are not expensive at all..

How do I reset the timing on my juki sewing machine


Timing rarely needs to be set in home sewing... what I usually see called as "out of time" machines are machines with the needle in backwards, needle not fully up in the clamp and/or damaged needle, or another misthreading problem, so try those first.

Then put in a new size 12/80 needle and check against: http://sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Repair/Sewing%20Machine%20Hook%20Timing.htm

How to fix new home machine it model No.731016401. model 360 manufactured by Janome its not sewing cloths. The thread is placed properly but when i try sewing it starts to break the thread. it turns in...


Upper thread breaks
1.needle may be in backwards
Correct needle insertion
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine or if using a round needle--the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft.
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
2.upper tension may be to tight--try 3 to 5
3.the needle may be bent or damaged--try rolling the needle on a flat surface to see if it's bent or not
4.thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint
???
Lower thread breaks
The most probable cause of lower thread breaking is improperly wound bobbin
1.always start with a empty bobbin
Never wind one color over the other
2.choose thread that is identical in color & type as the one to be used for upper threading
3.wind the bobbin evenly across & in layers
4.don't wind the bobbin so full that it would be tight & hard to insert into bobbin case
5.bent bobbin--replace
6.lint built up in the bobbin case--frequent cleanings will eliminate this problem, the more often you use the sewing machine the more often it needs to be cleaned
7.thread catching on the bobbin spring or latch on bobbin case, check to see that the bobbin is inserted completely & correctly, & that you are using the right kind of bobbin

also check the thread take up lever to make sure the thread has not come off of it cause that can make the machine jam up also

The thread keeps bunching up near the bobbin and no amount of rethreading and lubricating is helping.


1.upper tension may be to tight--try 3 to 5

have you tried a new needle
2.the needle may be bent or damaged--try rolling the needle on a flat surface to see if it's bent or not
3.Correct needle insertion
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine or if using a round needle--the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft.
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
4.also check to see if the thread has come off the thread take up lever

when you put the needle in the needle clamp holder the flat side of the needle goes toward the back of the the machine when you tighten the needle clamp screw make sure it's holding the needle,,make sure you can't pull the needle back out of the clamp,, if you can something is wrong with the needle clamp or the screw
