SOURCE: Brother Sewing Machine model:CS8150 bobbin thread problems

The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

SOURCE: Bobbin thread breaks

Make sure your bobbin thread is turning clockwise as it sits in the bobbin case. There is a screw on the outside of the bobbin case you can turn with your thumb slightly to adjust tension. If you dangle the case from the thread and give it a light ****, it should move down slightly when doing so-an indicator of good bobbin tension.

I had the same problem. I'm a novice sewer. I just bought my machine. It did the samething, tension didn't work, the thread kept knotting up underneath, and the fabric kept curling up in the back.

I adjusted the tension knobs to no avail. Then it kept bothering me that it was curling up. I then decided to set the dials back to where the factory had them and adjusted the presser foot just a hair counterclockwise and I haven't had anymore problems.

The other day the needle almost broke because the tension was tight on the thread. You have to make sure that the needle is at it's highest point to get it to release the fabric so you have a thread tail.

This is my first purchased machine. I had a New Home years ago that was given to me, however it blew away in the tornado of 1991 in Kansas and I never replaced it. I really do love this machine. I don't believe I will ever want another.

SOURCE: Singer Sewing Machine model 9224. Bobbin thread

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.

Let me know.

SOURCE: how do you thread an Elnita 140 sewing machine

It's easy! Start from the thread holder at the top and go left - hook it under the hook which is behind the round disc that the bobbin winds around, then forward down thru the tension, then under the straight metal bit that's below and slightly to the left of the tension, then up into the hook (slide it behind and then slide forward into the hook), then back down and flip it into the small hook (which is just under the 'straight metal bit' mentioned above) and thru the needle! :-) Hope that helps. The machine might be an oldie but it's a goodie! cheers Lynda

My Elnita 245i is squeaking when it goes forward, but not in reverse. Ive oiled inside the needle mechanism and bobbin case areas. No change. It is also breaking top thread after 6 inches


..

If your machine is mechanical (not computerized), it could very well benefit from a good cleaning and oiling, including the internal mechanical movement. Squeaking could be the feed dogs but could be a multitude of places.

When threading the machine, be sure to ALWAYS raise the presser foot. The fact that the top thread is breaking about 6 inches into the sewing indicates that the thread is catching somewhere. Sometimes, it catches on the thread notch on the thread spool. Other possibilities is that the thread is looped around something, ie the spool pin, a thread guide... Remove the thread entirely from the machine and rethread from the beginning.

HINT: Be sure to raise the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. It releases the upper tension disk so the thread will seat properly. Do this every time the upper is threaded.

The top thread breaks

1. the needle thread is not threaded properly

2. The needle thread tension is to tight

3. The needle is bent or blunt

4. The needle is incorrectly inserted

5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew

6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing

7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle

8. Try a different spool or cone of thread

I have mislaid the instructions for my Elnita 140. In particular, I need to find the instructions for threading, including the little bobbin that goes underneath!


This is a machine made under licence for Elna back in the 80's I believe. So should be a bobbin inside a bobbin case mounted vertically. Try this link for threading up, it should be very similar.

http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Elna_Sewing_machine_threading/Elna_225_threading_diagram.htm

Many machines have this bobbin case design and they all work much the same way, you need to place the bobbin into the bobbin case with it turning the right direction, click the thread into the tension spring on the outside of the bobbin case then latch it into the rotary hook of the machine, usually there is a little latch on the bobbin case that holds it in.

Top thread is usually fairly obvious, from the spool through an eyelet, through the take up lever, through a tension device, then down to the needle.

Always thread up with the pressure foot raised as this opens up the tension device and allows the thread to seat in correctly.

You can probably buy a manual for your machine from either sewusa.com or www.sewingpartsonline.com or "sewing machine relics" websites. Or just search ebay, there are several vendors who sell pdf copies of different manuals there.

I hope this helps you get sewing with your Elnita, four thumbs up if so.

While sewing on singer quantum futura ce-200 sewing machine, thread bunchedup on underside of fabric and bobbin case flew out more than once.


Mine did this and it seemed impossible to fix. My problem was a tiny bit of thread stuck in the bobbin cover (but it could be anywhere in the thread route). I ran dental floss through the path the thread follows and also in the bobbin cover and poof out came a small piece of thread that all my looking missed. Hope this helps.
