You may have to take the machine apart to get the spool pin. Shake the machine to see if it is loose inside. If you can see the top of the pin a very very strong rare earth magnet may be able to retrieve it from the outside. If the pin is not causing problems inside the machine you can use a thread stand or install another spool pin on the outside of the machine with a pop rivet gun.

SOURCE: bobbin jams

This is a common problem with all sewing machines. You must make sure that both needle and bobbin thread are behind the sewing foot and that there is at least 4inches of each thread before you begin stitching. Thread jams can also be caused by improper placement of bobbin in the casing. Place the bobbin in the case so the open side is facing you, the thread end should be on your right, then slide the thread into the opening leaving about 6 inches to pull through. It may look like it should be the other way, but there needs to be some tension. If these solutions do not help, you probably need to have your machine cleaned and adjusted.

SOURCE: thread constantly wraps around spool pin

Cut a round curcle of fabric the size of the spool from a piece of felt. Put a hole in the middle and put it under the spool of thread. If this does not work you can purchase a small net that fits over the spool. It is designed to keep the thread from coming off the spool except for being pulled through naturally.
Hope this works.

SOURCE: can't pull thread from spool

The sequence of setting up of thread from spool to needle is not complied to actual setting is one factor to be consider it affect the sequence timing of sewing.Particularly some machine are common in starting up threading.fig. shown a basic flow of thread on red color.It maybe a helpful oneb1934dc.jpg

In addition to this the set up of thread to bobbins winder is also need in right place the thread should be in clockwise rotation when coming out to bobbins casing as shown in fig.76e4431.jpg as you can see when thread was pulled out from bobbins winder is moving counter clockwise.If you try to sew, try cotton fabric and set dial to # 3 to 4 and stitch set range to 8 up to 12 depend on layers and thickness,After setting try to sew manually ,turn hand wheel by your hand first,let upper tension catch the lower bobbins tension and arranged thread and insert fabric use hand turning hand wheel several time until stich appear on fabric observed loop thread on lower bobbins on fabric.if accumulation of loop thread on lower adjust upper tension also dial tension gradually until it has a smooth stich appear.

Singer quantum XL-150 how do i thread this machine?


All Singer models would have arrows/numbers to guide your top threading from the spool pin to top thread guide, for most machine start from your thread spool pin, to a thread guide follow arrow down then up into the take up lever and down to the needle thread guide then into the needle hole. Assuming you have wind and install the bobbin thread into the bobbin case, turn your hand wheel towards you makes the needle bar goes down,keep on turning till the needle bar is fully up again, pull the end of the top thread to pick out the bobbin/bottom thread. With your material/fabric under the presser feet, apply the presser feet lever down, you are ready to sew.

Bernina artista 180 bottom stitch bunching


bunching under the material is bird nesting is a result of loose needle thread tension thread the machine up to the point of threading the needle
pull on the thread and you should have a reasonable resistance to pulling the thread
adjust the tension until you get that then thread the needle
while you may be using the tension settings if there is a problem in the tension plates area , the tension will not get high enough regardless of the indicated setting
bobbin tension can be reasonably loose
correct tension is when both threads meet at the center of the materials being sewn

I want to know how to fix thread from top to needle


Always start from the thread spool pin, install your thread spool to the spool pin & put on the spool holder, pull end of thread to go thru the top thread guide then down to the tension disc(follow the arrow pointer if there is),up to the thread take up lever arm from left to right and down to the needle thru the needle clam guide(just below its needle clam screw)then enter the needle eye from front to back. Turn your hand wheel towards you to bring needle bar down into the bobbin case, keep turning till needle comes fully up, pull out your top thread end & this should bring up the bobbin thread then you be ready to sew.

Thread a bobbin on a 5825c


If you mean the Singer 5285C, the manual is available from Singer here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/449_5_6_8_10_slide.pdf . The diagram for winding the bobbin is on page 14 and inserting the bobbin is on page 15.

I'll attempt to walk through the steps. Push in on the indent on the hand wheel to lock the needle in the current position (note rotate the needle up first). Then with a spool on the spool pin and the cap securely holding the spool on the pin, snap the thread through the thread guide post (near the center back of the top of the machine). Then wind the thread clockwise through the bobbin tension guide (towards the center front of the top of the machine). Next run the thread through the hole in the bobbin (inside to outside). Place the bobbin on the bobbin spindle on the front of the machine near the right hand side of the machine. Hold onto the thread end at the bobbin and start pushing down of the foot controller. Fill the bobbin to the amount of thread that you need, or until it stops. Cut the thread going from the spool to the bobbin.. Remove the bobbin from the spindle and trim the thread end that is sticking through the hole in the bobbin. Press the hand wheel disc on the side opposite from the indent.

Inserting the bobbin requires you to lift the presser foot and have the needle in the highest position. Slide open the face plate and remove the empty or wrong color bobbin. With the hole in the bobbin up, pull about 4" of thread off the bobbin. Place the bobbin in the bobbin case and hold it down lightly with a finger. Guide the thread through the notch near the front of the bobbin case. Then lead the thread down into the slot on the left and then around the second notch. The thread should be heading towards the center of the bobbin (left to right). Pull the thread diagonally back to the back of the machine and slide the bobbin cover closed. The thread should be coming up through the opening between the cover and the needle faceplate. To pull up the bobbin thread, thread the needle and then hold onto this top thread. Rotate the hand-wheel towards you until the needle rises above the needle plate. Gently tug on the top thread to bring up the loop of thread. Separate the needle thread from the bobbin thread with your fingers. Bring the top thread through the left side opening in the presser foot and then pull both threads to the back of the machine.

I hope this helps.

How do I thread my white 765 top and bottom


The bobbin is held in a removable bobbin case. If the bobbin case is already out of the machine, place the bobbin in the bobbin case such that the thread will come off clockwise. Leave a couple of inches of thread loose. Then pull the end of the thread down into the cross slot and thread it through the tension spring and into the delivery eye.

Next make sure the presser foot is up and the needle is in the highest position. Push the slide plate up. Hold the latch in the center of the bobbin case and place it over the center stud with the finger opposite the notch in the shuttle race. Release the latch in the center and press down on the bobbin case until you hear a click when the latch catches the groove. Leave a 2-3" length of thread extending out of the bobbin case and push the slide plate down. (Reverse the steps to remove the bobbin case.)

To thread the needle, place a spool on the spool pin with the needle bar fully up. I try to place the spool on the pin so that the little catch is out of the way. (The catch holds the end of the thread when the spool isn't in use.) Bring the thread through the guide loop on the top of the machine and then down through the thread guide on the right side of the tension discs. Bring the thread back up on the left side of the tension discs through the check spring and through the thread guide. Bring the thread through the hole (eye) in the take up lever (from right to left). Then bring the thread down through all of the guides down the face of the machine to the needle. Finally thread the needle from left to right. Pull a few inches of thread through the needle. (I find the threading of the needle to be easiest if the thread has been cut at an angle after threading the machine.)

The manual for the White 765 is available from Singer's support site. The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/827_white-765-x.pdf . See page 6 of the manual and the subsequent pages for pictures.

I hope this helps.

Thread bunches up in the bobbin area and needle appears to be stuck and won't move. Almost like the thread wont come off the spool.


Check to see if the thread coming off the spool is tangling on the spool pin or getting caught in the crack on the spool top where the thread originally comes off spool. Make sure the spool pin is pushed all the way to the right to secure your thread and then back it off slightly so the thread pulls evenly off the spool. Whenever your bobbin thread gets bunched it is usually something is wrong with the threading of the UPPER thread and vice versa. Let me know if this solves your problem.

My machine is a Brother XL5600; I think I am having a shuttle hook problem. When I lower the sewing needle to "catch" the bobbin thread and pull through- it won't catch and pull through. I have changed out...


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The upper thread could be tangled. Remove the thread completely from the machine. The correct size spool cap should be used for the size of the thread spool. Re-thread the machine according to the directions in the manual.

Place a spool of thread on a spool pin and check the upper threading.
Remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race. Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race.

Also please check that the bobbin is installed in its case rightly. Needle thread is too tight. Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle.

The needle could be thread incorrectly. Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
The needle could be bent or improperly inserted and install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Threading machine


The machine is relatively simple to thread. This is what I do and I've had no threading problems. 1. Put thread spool on the spool pin and put spool guard over spool pin to hold spool onto pin. 2. Take thread and put it under the bent tab by the circle tensioner. bring the thread around the right side of the circle tensioner and bring around the front of the circle tensioner thing back to the top hook on the far left side of the machine. 3. Take the thread around the backside of the top hook think until it threads through the flat piece on the left side of it. 4. Bring the thread down through the first (right side) channel and under the plastic piece to the second (left side) channel. 5. Bring the thread up the second channel and around the moving thread holder and past it's flat metal piece to hold it. 6. Tuck the thread around the small wire thread holder below the needle screw. This may take a few passes to catch it. 7. Thread the needle from the front and run the thread between the teeth of the presser foot. 8. Put a bobbin in the bobbin case so that the thread pulls off the bobbin from the left side of the bobbin if you look at it from above. 9. There is a small channel in the bobbin case that is covered by the bobbin tension flat piece. Pull the bobbin thread through this channel and into the empty space where the needle thread will catch. 10. Place the bobbin case into the machine with the little set bobbin arm pointed to the sky so that it fits into the machine without wiggling to the right or the left. 11. Turn the, uhhh brain fart, the hand wheel until the needle comes back up with the bobbin thread hooked over the needle thread. Take a narrow thing, like scissors or a seam ripper and pull both threads until the bobbin thread comes up. Now your machine is threaded. Use these directions with the pictures in the book to get this machine threaded.
