Lervia sewng machine. material wont feed through. Dogs are up but material just wont move through. needle moving freely.


Hm, could be several things. If stitches are not being formed, it could be a timing issue (the needle does not arrive at the bobbin at the correct time). Did the machine recently hit a pin or something hard? That will knock a machine out of time. There could also be a broken piece stuck that is preventing the feed dogs from operating. Thoroughly clean the machine around the bobbin area and feed dogs.

Auto threader wont thread


Move the needle to the top.
Loosen the screw on the threader.
Use the threader as if you are using it. You will have to adjust it to the side and up or down. Move it so the threader is in the needle hole.
Tighten the needle.
If it still doesn't work you may need to replace the threader.

Arm wont move and needle wont go up and down any more in the middle of sewing, I was in the middle of sewing and all the sudden it froze up. It wont move any more and when you try you cant hardle move the...


Annoying solution, but works every time. Remove the ENTIRE bobbin casing from the base and then turn the wheel. The needle should lift right out. Reassemble bobbin casing and oil very well.

This generally only happens when you are sewing through several layers of fabric or though a thick fabric. If you are doing neither, the timing in your machine may be off and you will need to get it repaired.

The needle wont move at all?


Hello we had the same problem with our sewing machine. After playing with it we found there is a bobbin winding assembly lever that moves back and forth. By moving it the needle moved. This helped us. Hope it helps you. embreyR97@yahoo.com if you have questions.

Needle Keeps Moving While Sewing and Bobbin Wont Thread


Hi Nikki,

The problem seems to be of the needles alignment. If you are using a half bobbin type (D type) needle, makes sure you have used the proper number & size and also fastened it well so that the flat side is firmly fixed/clasping the inner side of the needle hold. That black thing which I feel is the fly-nut that helps you tighten/clamp the needle to its hold. Then after having done that, slowly turn the wheel manually to see whether the needle is going in thru the hole in a straight line and if you can, look underneath to se if the knotter ring (the one that looks like having fangs) comes close as the neele advances inward. All these movements HAVE TO BE syncronised. Only then you will be able to stitch the fines of fabrics speedily. Also make sure oyu are not tugging on the front end of the fabric too hard as this may cause the needle to go in a diagonal manner thus causing it to snap. Take care as to NOT to be too close to the needle while at high speeds. The snapping pieces can fly right into your eyes/nose causing serious injury.

Hope that does it Nikki...
