Hi, look to the right of the spindle holder that lays across the machine, you'll find a little square hole and that is the spot.

What is the best thread to use on the pixie plus machine. A lot of the threads do not fit.


I am not sure why they would not fit but embroidery thread is thinner than general purpose thread so it might work. Good luck.

Why does my thread get wound up on the spindle of the pfaff 230 sewing machine


Do you mean the spindle that holds the spool of thread, on the machine's top ?

If it's winding on that, chances are it's something about the spindle itself. Check that there isn't a loose washer under the spindle. If there is, check the washer for any rough spots, it may need replacing. Make sure the spindle is firmly screwed into the machine, if it screws in. If it's welded on, make sure there are no rough spots. If all that's ok. try putting a felt washer under the spool. You can b buy them but they're easy to make. Just cut a spool base size circle out of firm felt, and snip a hole in the middle just large enough to slip onto the spool. A leather punch works great for this. If it's still winding up, check the instructions, if you have them, and make sure you have the thread coming out from the spool in the right direction.Some machines are very picky about how they are threaded. For some, the thread must come from the back of the spool, for others, from the front of the spool. Try both to see if one orientation works better. And last check there is no rough spot, either on the needle or any of the thread guides. If the thread is being chafed anywhere along the thread path, excess tension may result, which can cause the thread to start winding on the spindle. Changing the needle is easy. Changing a guide may not be, but if it's a guide that's got a rough spot, see if you can remove the guide and then smooth the rough spot using some very fine sandpaper or emery cloth. The entire thread path has to be perfectly smooth for thread to move as it should.

Brother pc 8500 upper thread breaks


Check the spindle the thread is mounted on and see if it\'s wrapped around it. Sometimes thread will catch and wrap around the spool spindle and break.

Check thread guides to be sure there are no nicks that might be catching the thread or damaging it.



Replace the needle.. a burr in the eye can cause upper thread to break. Needles should be replaced often, modern fibres can be hard on them, they get dull and that\'s no help for anything either.



Make sure the thread spool is mounted on the spindle with the thread coming off as directed in the manual. Some machines only work when the thread feeds in the right direction from the spool.



It can also be a tension issue.. tight upper tension or tight bobbin tension. Bobbin tension may be adjustable manually, but it\'s pretty rare for it be a problem. Upper tension, I don\'t know. I\'ve yet to get into computer machines so am not familiar with how they set upper tension.



But the mechanism that produces the tension can wear out or break and need replacement.

Thread breakage and bobbin tangles


These might be caused by one issue, or by separate issues, so you need to test to identify it, but that doesn't take long.

You need to take out your user's manual and make sure that you are threading it correctly. You might also want to take your spool out of the spindle on the machine. Put the spindle that came with it for twin needle sewing on the top, and put the thread at the back of the machine in a coffee cup, then bend it around the base of the spindle, and then thread normally--exerting tension at the top and bottom when you do so, and making sure that your presser foot is UP--ALWAYS up on ANY sewing machine. That is the only time that the tension disks are spread to admit the thread, and a possible cause of your problems.

Next, review how you insert the bobbin, and make sure that the bobbin case was properly inserted, and the thread is properly threaded, with the bobbin going in the correct direction.

Also, you might want to switch to either a slightly larger needle, or a metallic needle, which is a regular needle in a range of sizes, but has a larger eye. Also, try another spool of thread to make sure the problem is NOT the thread, which might be old--even if you just bought it, it may have been sitting on a shelf.

Thread a bobbin on a 5825c


If you mean the Singer 5285C, the manual is available from Singer here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/449_5_6_8_10_slide.pdf . The diagram for winding the bobbin is on page 14 and inserting the bobbin is on page 15.

I'll attempt to walk through the steps. Push in on the indent on the hand wheel to lock the needle in the current position (note rotate the needle up first). Then with a spool on the spool pin and the cap securely holding the spool on the pin, snap the thread through the thread guide post (near the center back of the top of the machine). Then wind the thread clockwise through the bobbin tension guide (towards the center front of the top of the machine). Next run the thread through the hole in the bobbin (inside to outside). Place the bobbin on the bobbin spindle on the front of the machine near the right hand side of the machine. Hold onto the thread end at the bobbin and start pushing down of the foot controller. Fill the bobbin to the amount of thread that you need, or until it stops. Cut the thread going from the spool to the bobbin.. Remove the bobbin from the spindle and trim the thread end that is sticking through the hole in the bobbin. Press the hand wheel disc on the side opposite from the indent.

Inserting the bobbin requires you to lift the presser foot and have the needle in the highest position. Slide open the face plate and remove the empty or wrong color bobbin. With the hole in the bobbin up, pull about 4" of thread off the bobbin. Place the bobbin in the bobbin case and hold it down lightly with a finger. Guide the thread through the notch near the front of the bobbin case. Then lead the thread down into the slot on the left and then around the second notch. The thread should be heading towards the center of the bobbin (left to right). Pull the thread diagonally back to the back of the machine and slide the bobbin cover closed. The thread should be coming up through the opening between the cover and the needle faceplate. To pull up the bobbin thread, thread the needle and then hold onto this top thread. Rotate the hand-wheel towards you until the needle rises above the needle plate. Gently tug on the top thread to bring up the loop of thread. Separate the needle thread from the bobbin thread with your fingers. Bring the top thread through the left side opening in the presser foot and then pull both threads to the back of the machine.

I hope this helps.

My bobbins sometimes don't wind right. The thread gets all tangled at the bottom of the bobbin instead of winding evenly. I'm sure it's user error because sometimes it works. Hoping you can help me figure...


when the thread is on the spool pin
1.guide the thread around the bobbin winder thread guide
2.insert the thread through the hole on the bobbin, threading from the inside to the outside
put the the bobbin spindle
3.push the bobbin winder spindle to the right (if you have a electronic machine the LED display
will show SP)
4.depress the foot control, when the bobbin is fully wound, stop it, & push the bobbin spindle to the left, cut the thread & remove it from the spindle

THREAD CARTRIDGE WONT LOCK IN PLACE


Hi - I'm sorry you have been waiting for an answer to your problem. Can you tell me whether this was first time you used the cartrige, or has it been working up until now? Unfortunately, the cartridges tend to break fairly easily.
To determine whether your cartridge is broken, take out the thread and thread it again. The cartridge won't lock-in unless your presser foot is up and your needle is raised to its hightest position (needle threaders are designed to prevent damage, so they often won't work if the parts of your machine are not positioned properly for threading).  
If the cartidge still won't engage, check the page in your manual that describes the parts that came with your machine - you should see a picture of a spool pin. Although the spool pin is designed to accommodate spools of thread that don't fit in your cartrige, you can use the spool pin all the time. Your manual describes how to install the spool pin.
Fortunately, you can purchase spool pins and replacement cartridges from several online sources, including eBay, and some Babylock Dealers sell them (the Babylock and Brother cartidges are interchangeable). I have the same machine, and I always keep an extra cartridge around. I can thread the extra spool while the other is sewing. When the machine stops for a color change, I just insert the extra cartridge with the next color, then thread up the empty cartridge for the next color. Speeds up your embroidery alot. 
On Google, type in Brother Thread Cassette - you'll get lots of hits, and you should be able to find a cartridge for about $10.00.
If you have and other readers have time to rate my answer (good or bad), your rating helps me determine whether I understand your problem.
If you have more details about your problem or have additional questions, please feel free to comment. I can send you the instructions for threading the cartridge and installing the spool pin if your manual is missing. Just submit a comment - and I'll help anyway I can.
Cheers, Ginny
