Bobbin timing Winding a bobbin seems to have jolted the hook out of time. I adjusted the timing following the man. instructions, now the thread breaks and the stitches are uneven in places, perhaps I don't have the timing just right, any suggestions?

    My problem started while rewinding a bobbin. The machine jammed, slipped the top gears and got everything out of time. I readjusted the gears so that it will run, but is noisy. Had the timing reset then on the next bobbin refill, it would not sew. Keeps breaking the thread near the bobbin. Seems they should have designed the machine so that it does not run while filling the bobbin, like the old home machines. I have had this happen more than once.

Don't ever pay to repair a sewing machine when timing, oiling, living, tension problem/s, problems with bobbin/ thread breakage, cleaning race shuttle, oiling hook, etc are just a matter of reading and doing yourself! I have been fixing sewing machines for 30 yrs. All you need is patience and carrying out each step.

Needle hitting this and breaking. Pulling too ******* thread caught in bobbin case is the cause. How to fix or readjust?


breaking needles from hitting can be from several problems
1-- needle /hook timing is out
2--needle thread tension is too tight pulling needle side ways
thread caught around bobbin holder is top thread too loose
take it in for a service check as the needle /hook timing is complicated to adjust and the problem could be more complicated than suggested

I am not sure about this particular machine but in most machines there will be a nob on the front loose low numbers like 0 1 -2 work well on number 3. If the nob is not on the front check and see if it is on the side.

My needle thread keeps breaking. I've tried different thread (top and bobbin), a new needle, and I opened up the bottom plate to clean out lint. I have also tried adjusting the thread tension.


Are you sure you have got the top thread threaded correctly including the take up lever? Start at the thread spool and follow the thread all the way through the thread path checking that it is not snagging on anything enroute and that the thread is correctly through the tension device. Also tension dial should be on 4-5, if its higher this could be breaking the thread. YOu should not need to adjust top thread tension more than a half increment at any time.

Other possibility is that the bobbin holder under the needle plate has moved out of alignment and then the top thread is catching there as it goes around the hook.

If you check your manual it should give you instructions on removing the needle plate (2 screws need to come out), then you can lift the bobbin case out towards you, clean underneath with your little brush, then reinsert it. There are two little red marks on the right side of the bobbin case and a stopper, these need to be lined up. Then put in bobbin and rethread into tension spring, replace needle plate, bobbin cover, and test stitch.

Hopefully one of the above is causing the thread to break.

The main thread is not catching the bobbin thread


It looks like your timing of your bobbin hook is out you will need to have a service man adjust it for you.

Try inserting the bobbin in the reverse direction. Most machines take a bobbin clockwise or counterclockwise and it can make a difference. Also try a new needle, a bad needle is often the problem believe it or not.

Bobbin won't thread


I just bought my White sewing machine used and the model #967.I had problem winding a bobbin so my husband helped me. what I had to do was hold the arm with the bobbin on up agains the wheel. I know it seems to be a pain but this machine has all kind of attachments.

Thread breaks off


Where does it break? You change tension at the top via the tension discs the thread passed through, and at the bottom by adjusting the small screw on the bobbin case - the screw on the front part of the spring. Thread size matters as well as needle size. For everyday upholstery I use #69 nylon thread, and "G" bobbins.
If the thread's breaking at the hook you may need to adjust timing. But most commonly thread breaks because of improper tension, threading, needle or thread size.

Machine No. K1831(256) No.28 how do you set up the stop motion wheel to wind bobbins. It either winds bobbins whilst sewing or just free wheels. I think there must be a way of adjusting this action....
