Question about Simplicity Creative Spirit SA1500 Mechanical Sewing Machine

Open Question

My sewing machine works great except it tangles the thread around the bobbin area. Some how when the needle goes down it circles around and causes the thread to bunch up in the material. My book they gave me is in spanish and I only speak english. grrrr so could you please help me on how to fix it? The thread is getting caught on the part that sits around the bobbin with a sharp point at the end.

Our machine had the same problem, there was a piece of broken thread stuck in the upper tension spring keeping the tension spring open. removing the broken thread in the upper tension solved the problem for us

I sounds as though the needle is not properly installed.

Replace with a new needle. Loosen the wing nut so the needle can be easily inserted into the holder as far as possible, with the flat side of the needle shaft facing the back of the machine.

I have 2 singer sewing machines and whenever the thread is breaking like that i find that I have to RE-THREAD the machine sometimes SEVERAL times until I can feel the thread give a little bit while its in there & not breaking! It's very frustrating but just keep rethreading from the beginning where you put the spool on your machine & sooner or later you'll get it right & it will work! GOOD LUCK!

Showing E6


You receive the error message E6 when the motor locked up because thread is tangled or the machine is seizing up.

Remove the tangled thread, it it still happens that means your machine is seizing and requires service.

Bobbin thread is tangling around bobbin carriage as I sew. So I can only go a few stitches before the machine stops sewing and it's tangled.


Hello

This is Really not that big a problem. Simply pull out the bobbin thread with a long lead, put the assembled bobbin into the sewingmachine and take that long thread and close it between the sliding door and the machine itself to hold it temporarly.

Most sewing machine problems are caused by the usasge of wrong thread type. Make sure you have a thread that is for a sewing machine use, that is, good strong stuff, not hand needle basting thread as that will cause much problems.

Often the bobbin is thought to be the problem, those things are almost never the problem. A source of problems also is the usage of wrong or improperly machined flat on the needle itself. Be sure to buy a quality needle as that flat on there, if machined not deep enough will not allow the bobbin to pick up the thread, wind it around and form the stitch.

The macine said it was an E6 error thread jam which I completely cleaned the bobbin area (not much there anyway) but I still cannot get it to not jam the thread on the botom. I have changed needles also.


Hello

This code tells you that the motor locked up because the thread is tangled. Untangle the thread, make sure the machine is threaded properly and that the proper tension is set before continuing.

It could be that the bobbin is being put in upside down check to make sure that you do not need a bobbin with a magnet on one side. also make sure there is no thread tangled inside the bobbin housing it will cause the timing of the machine to be off and cause issues with your needle picking up the bobbin and thus cause a mess inside you bobbin housing

There has to be a problem in your threading or your needle. You may have the needle inserted backwards, flat side has to face rear or the needle is bent. Totally unthread your machine and make sure that there are no tangles and that it feeding the right way. Watch how they show your for threading and winding the bobbin, plus threading the bobbin. Good luck, but I truly think it is in your threading.

The bobbin thread will not pick up. The machine had jammed and I forced the wheel and can't get bobbin thread to pick up. When I thread manually, I only get holes, no stitches. Is it a timing belt?


check your needle to see if it's bent---roll on flat surface to see if it roll correctly
on some sewing machines when the thread comes off the thread take up lever it can cause the machine to jam
also if the bobbin thread becomes tangled it can jam
check the bobbin area for lint or loose threads
try having a top thread tail & bobbin thread tail of 3-4 inches
try holding the top thread tail & turn the handwheel on the right side on the machine manually & put the needle down into the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will pick up that way

Thread breaking.


Rethread the machine following these directions:
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.
Remove the bobbin case and bobbin. Pull on the bobbin thread to make sure it doesn't pull too hard. It should have some tension on it but not a lot. Insert the bobbin and bobbin case into the hook assembly and pull on the bobbin thread again.The tension should still be about the same. If it is tight, you need to look at the bottom of the pin that the bobbin case sits on and see if there are any threads looped around it. If there are , you need to remove them.
Hold the top thread , turn the hand wheel and see if the thread is catching someplace around the hook assembly. If it pulls the thread up easily, put some fabric in it and see how it works.
Make sure the thread is through the take up lever.

Untangle any mess under and around the needleplate very gingerly trimming threads as you go if necessary....remove and clear.

Undo the needle clamp and remove the remains of the needle.

Open the door for the bobbin and bobbin case and undo the clips holding the hook in place......don't force anything, just ease any tangle loose slowly.

You may want to take a photo of how it goes back together if unfamiliar, or lay the bits out sensibly, so you can replace easily later.

Inside the bobbin/hook area is the most likely region for thread jamming the motion of everything, so make sure all is clear and clean, then.......

Without replacing the bobbin or hook, test the handwheel after cleaning before re-assembly.

You may also want to check the take-up crank for thread jams........the small arm in the top cover that moves up/down to "take-up" the top thread has a cam attached to the top shaft and often tangles thread around the shaft, open the L side cover to access.......remove thread by unwinding handwheel manually ....again be patient and careful not to break threads.
