SOURCE: Bobbin won't wind - foot pedal working but bobbin won't turn ES2020 New *unused just stored since purchase from new*

Your new but stored machine has sat long enough that any oils from the factory have become gummy and or dried out. I would take it in and have the pros service it. But for now you might try....

Turning the hand wheel by hand while you press on the pedal. This MAY free up the machine enough for the motor to take over.

SOURCE: I need a power cord with foot pedal for a montgomery ward sewing machine model UHT J 1980? Anybody have any ideas. Could also use a manual

Don't know if problem is resolved, but I put a Mont Ward sewing machine model # UHT 1460 on Washington DC Craigslist a few moments ago. Could not fix it, so am selling it for parts (something is wrong with bobbin assembly and I give up!!). If you just want the power cord and foot contact me through there and I will detach it and mail it to you--the postage shouldn't be too much for just those parts.

How to thread an old Montgomery Ward sewing machine model 30 ? e


Search the internet for your machine make & model & threading instructions. You may not find your exact machine, but a lot of similar machines will have the same threading sequence.

Just a hint: be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread so the tension disk will allow the thread to seat properly.

Problem sewing


You may need to tighten your upper thread tension or loosen the tension on your bobbin. I don't know if you are using a newer model sewing machine or an older one; but if it is like mine, there is a little screw on the bobbin you turn to loosen the tension.
My Kenmore sewing machine bunches up on the bottom if I am using a different type of thread in the bobbin than I am using on the top part of the sewing machine.

Help with an older sewing machine


There are lots of men who sew...it is not gender specific.

Perhaps this will help--unfortunately not free:
Wards 1984 Instruction Manual

Montgomery Wards Sewing Machine Instruction and Service Manuals

Montgomery Ward did not make their own machines, so it was most likely manufactured by a sewing machine company with Montgomery Ward's name on it.

However, most machines thread similarly. Just be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread--this allows the thread to seat in the tension disk. Set the top tension to about the midway point to start and then tweak from there.

Understanding Thread Tension Threads

Bobbin tension is usually the last thing to try to adjust...be sure to mark the screw setting BEFORE making any adjustment...

Bobbin Tension How and Why Tension is Adjusted

Needles are probably the least expensive resolution to a lot of sewing machine problems--change them often!!! About every 8 hours of sewing, and be sure to use a needle that is compatible with the thread and fabric. Be sure to install the needle with the flat part facing the correct direction. Most machines have the flat part facing the back of the machine, however, some machines with the bobbin loading from the side will have the flat part of the needle facing the harp (throat) of the machine. AVOID old or bargain bin threads! Use fresh, good quality sewing machine thread (generally, Coats & Clark is not one of them...)
