MY EURO PRO SHARK 384 WILL NOT STITCH. WHEN YOU TURN THE KNOB AND GET THE THREAD FROM THE BOBBIN AND PULL TOWARDS THE BACK, THEN PUT MATERIAL ON AND START SEWING. IT MOVES THE MATERIAL LIKE ITS SEWING BUT NO STICHES ARE BEING STITCHED.

There might be 4 reasons for skipped stitches....

1. The needle is not inserted correctly.
2. The needle is damaged.
3. The wrong size needle has been used.
4. The wrong foot is attached.

Resolution....

1. Remove and reinsert needle ( The flat towards towards the back )
2. Insert a new needle
3. Choose a needle to suit the thread and the fabric
4. Check and attach correctly.

Do rate this.


Thanks for using Fixya.

    It seems that you are using an incorrect needle. Make sure the needle must suit the thread and the fabric....



    take care.

Rethread your needle
It may be threaded incorrectly (backwards).

Reinsert your needle
Make sure it goes all the way into the holder and that it’s positioned correctly – usually with the
flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your machine’s manual to be sure.

Change your needle
Your needle may be blunt, bent, or otherwise damaged.

Your fabric may require a different needle. Generally, heavier fabrics require larger needles and
thinner fabrics, smaller needles. You may also need a larger needle if
you’re sewing through many layers of fabric. And make sure to use a ballpoint needle for knit
fabrics and a sharp needle for wovens (or a universal needle for either).

And make sure your needle is appropriate for the type of thread you’re using.

Adjust the pressure of your pressure foot
It may be too light for your fabric.

    Balance the thread tension. If the stitches are loose on top of the
    fabric, decrease the tension to the next lower number. If they are
    loose on the underside set the tension to the next higher number. Make sure the needle/upper thread follows the threading path. Check
    to see that the bobbin case is threaded properly. Use a different
    size needle

My machine was working fine until i rewond my bobbin put back in machine started to sew seem to work fine i checked stich and it didnt have any thread in fabric


Check your manual. Make sure the bobbin is not in upside down. Most bobbins must be put in with the thread pulling from one side or the other. If you put it in upside down.... strange things happen.

ITS LOCKED UP


Try to turn your handwheel using slight pressure. If it moves a tiny bit, you probably have thread caught.in between the bobbin wheel that holds your bobbin case. There is an outer ring and an inner shuttle. Place a drop of sewing machine oil in the inside of where these two are seated together. Now watch your shuttle as you turn the handwheel towards you. You may have to apply some force but you will not damage anything by using the force you can generate with your hand. You will see the thread move out. Pull it out with your fingers. If it breaks or doesn't get all of the thread, repeat the process. On most machines you never want to turn the handwheel away from you. This will cause damage to the motor over time. Make sure to stitch it out in straight stitch to check that it's sewing correctly. Thread jams happen when you get nesting (knots of thread) under the needle plate. This occurs usually when you are sewing light or tightly woven fabric with a heavy stitch, such as an appliique stitch. Try using a light wash-away stabilizer under the fabric or in the seam to prevent this. If it's an older machine or a newer Singer, hold the end of your top thread for the first couple of stitches, too.

Zigzag stitch pulling tight, looks wrong


Try adusting the bobbin thread instead of the top. Always make sure to insert the bobbin so the thread is pulling in a clock wise direction. Both threads top and bobbin should have about the same resitance when pulled.

I have euro pro x 384


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} all machines thread the same. TTN tension, take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.
