Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

My Toyota rs 2000 was working fine until i decided to dust and oil the machine. I opened up the machine and realised the amount of dust in it already especially around the feet dog so i cleaned it and closed up the machine. When i tried to sew i noticed when i lowered the press foot on the fabric there was no grip and i could easily draw out the fabric also when i tried to sew i had to hold the fabric in place otherwise the feet just slide on the fabric in different directions. What do i do about this?

Is your machine equipped to lower your feed dogs
? You may have lowered it by mistake, or your bobbin tension spring may have loosened? I hope this helps? Happy Thanksgiving

SOURCE: Bobbin thread not picking up

Glad you managed to fix it yourself, in addition to the 250kms I would guess the cost would have been a lot.

SOURCE: I place the fabric on

This is easily solved. Before you start sewing make sure your upper and lower threads are long enough for you to hold before lowering the presser foot. If these threads are too short they both get carried down into the bobbin along with the fabric and cause a big tangled mess. Always hold your threads at the back of your work with your left hand then lower your pressure foot and don't release the threads untill you have taken several stitches. Keep holding these threads during backstitching at the beggining of a seam too. Works like magic.

What is your stitch length? I have always followed the rule... Bulky/Long stitches, Fine/Small stitches. If you have a "walking foot attachment otherwise known as an even feed might give that a try as well.

SOURCE: my presser foot lever is not working on my toyota rs2000 sewing machine

How do you mean 'not working'? Is it not lifting the presser foot? Not putting it down? Fabric not feeding? There are several possible problems depending upon exactly how it is (mis) behaving.

E6 error keeps coming out and it never stops now even if the tangle thread is removed.

Have you cleaned and oiled the machine lately? If not, your manual will have instructions on how to do this and this may solve your problem. I have a CE5000PRW and have had to pull the bobbin shuttle completely out sometimes and clean that out as well. I always keep canned air handy to blow the fuzzies out of my machine regularly as I use mine everyday. I did recently have a problem with this code showing up on my machine no matter how much I cleaned it and a couple of times it even flashed f5 along with the e6 code. It was going to cost me nearly as much money to have it looked at by a repair shop as it would have to buy a new machine so I went ahead and opened up the hard case (voids the warranty but my machine was only $150 and they want $100 just to look at a computerized machine - before doing any work to it so I wasn't worried about the warranty). I found straight pins and dust bunnies everywhere when I got inside. My 3 y/o apparently thought it was fun to put the pins in the little holes on top of the machine and watch them disappear! Anyway, I cleaned out all the pins (over 40) and the dust bunnies from everything, put it the case back together and it runs great.

If you decide to go ahead and do this, be sure to be very careful when you open the machine. There will be a cable that connects some of the computer chips on one half of the machine to the chips on the other half and you don't want them to disconnect. Pay close attention to which screws were in which hole. Canned air works great for getting all those dust bunnies out. I recommend going outdoors to do this part or you will have dust everywhere!

How to adjust tension on Toyota RS 2000 sewing machine (CB series

I found a free manual and parts for my Toyota 9090 on this site.
The only problem is that the manual is in French but some are also available in English. I found it useful for the diagrams etc.
Try the online guides as well as they give help on adjusting tension, replacing bobbins and needles etc.
