Question about White Sewing 1418 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Hand wheel loose

The inner part of the hand wheel of my sewing machine (that you loosed to thread a bobbin) has come loose. The machine works fine on reverse but not for normal operations. If I hand-turn the wheel by grasping the centre part it works fine, but will not stay locked when I am not holding it. How can I fix this?

In the middle of the stop motion screw wheel there is a screw, undo the screw and unscrew the stop motion wheel all the way off, you will now see a three pronged washer, take it off and put it in a different position, put the stop motion wheel back on and just tighten finger tight, tighten the small screw all the way, now loosen the stop motion wheel and press on the foot control gently, the balance wheel should move with moving the machine, if the machine turns then start over again, you can put the three pronged washer upside down if you wish.

Lil sew & sew lss202 bobbin threading?


Drop bobbin in carrier such that the thread and bobbin form "P". When you pull on thread the bobbin unwinds counter clockwise. Lay loose thread in groove on plate coming toward front of machine. Replace cover. Rotate hand wheel towards you to pick up thread. Pull upper and lower threads to rear of machine under presser foot.

Need to put bobin in a merritt 4530


Flip the presser switch up to raise the presser foot. Turn the hand wheel counterclockwise until the needle is in its highest position.
  • 2Hold the hand wheel in place with your left hand while turning the hand wheel knob counterclockwise with your right hand to loosen the hand wheel knob.
  • 3Place the desired spool of thread on the spool pin so that the pin fits all the way through the hole in the center of the spool. Put the spool holder onto the end of the spool pin that is sticking through the spool of thread and press firmly to ensure that the spool holder keeps the spool in place.
  • 4Grasp the end of the thread and hold it taut between the thumb and index fingers of both hands. Snap the taut section of thread into the thread guide post located to the left of the spool pin.
  • 5Pull the end of the thread gently. Wrap the thread around the bobbin winder tension disk near the left front on top of the machine, starting at the side of the tension disk facing you and wrapping around in a clockwise direction.
  • 6Poke the end of the thread through the small hole in the bobbin from the inside out so that the loose end of the thread sticks through the top of the bobbin. Put the bobbin on the spindle, or bobbin winder, and gently slide the bobbin winder to the right.
  • 7Hold the loose end of the thread in place while pressing down on the foot pedal to start the machine. Hold the foot pedal down until the bobbin is as full as desired. The machine will automatically stop once the bobbin has reached capacity.
  • 8Cut the loose end of the thread using scissors. Slide the bobbin winder to the left and remove the bobbin. Hold the hand wheel in your left hand and tighten the hand wheel knob with your right hand by turning it clockwise

    I cant get the needle to catch the bobbin thread. I just received the machine, i might not be doing it write? any suggestions


    This has to be done by hand.
    Raise the presser foot, then thread all the way down to the needle. Put in the full bobbin with thread end loose and visible. Hold the end of the thread in the needle with one hand and carefully turn the wheel so that the needle lowers and lifts the bobbin thread. Place both threads behind the presser foot. Now you can sew.

    My wife has a model 9110 sewing machine. It has stop picking up the thread from the bobin. Can you help on this fix?


    Put new needle in

    Make sure you have a 3-5 inch thread tail on both top thread & bobbin
    Then hold the top thread tail with your fingers (away from the needle)
    & use the hand wheel on the right hand side of machine & slowly lower needle into bobbin area & see if it will pick up the bobbin thread that way

    rethread the bobbin,,also check the bobbin area for lint or loose threads

    if none of these suggestions work, then the machine could be out of time & would need to be repaired

    Always have the presser foot up when you thead any sewing machine.

    Make sure the flat side of the needle shaft is facing to the back of the machine.

    Don't do anything to the bobbin tension. Set the top thread tension to what is recommended by the mfg.

    Make sure the thread from the bobbin is feeding from the bobbin in the correct direction and through the correct guides.

    After inserting the bobbin and threading the machine, lower the needle (hold on to the thread tail) and then raise it by turning the hand wheel by hand to pull up the bobbin thread.

    Gently pull the two threads under the presser foot and to the back of the sewing machine before you begin to sew.

    I was doing fine zigzag, ran out of bobbin thread did not change any thing and now the thread bunches on the bottom and the machine does not advance. Bobbin casing pop up also this is a 774 model


    Hi there,

    Well The most probable cause of the lower thread breaking is an improperly wound bobbin. Regardless of where you wind the bobbin, inside the machine, on the top of the hand wheel or on the front side near the hand wheel, the basic "bobbin" rules apply. 

    ** Always start with an empty bobbin. Never wind one color over another color.
    ** Don't wind the bobbin so full that it would be tight and hard to insert into the bobbin case. Most machines have an automatic "shut off" when the bobbin gets full, but if yours does not, be careful not to fill it too full.
    ** Wind the bobbin evenly across and in level layers.
    ** Never mix different sizes of thread in the bobbin and on the spool, unless you're doing sewing machine embroidery or some specialty type of sewing. Using different weights of thread on the spool and in the bobbin for general sewing will cause ragged stitches as well as other stitching problems.
    So clean all the threads and do it work from start.........
    Please reply ......
    Thanks

    Hello,

    Although you already re-theaded and cleaned your machine, re-check this:

    - Un-thread your machine and remove your bobbin. Clean any loose thread or lint out of your bobbin case. Re-thread your machine, reinsert and rethread your bobbin.

    If that doesn't work, try this:

    - Change your bobbin.There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you sew.

    - Raise your feed dogs if your machine has this feature.

    Note:
    when you start to sew a seam, hold the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting caught in your machine.

    Hope this helps.

    Hand wheel spins without moving the needle


    I used to have an old Bernina that had an inner and outer hand wheel. Loosening the inner wheel disconnected the needle bar from the motor so you could wind the bobbin without running the needle up and down. It sounds to me like your machine has the same feature, but resistance on the needle makes the inner wheel loosen up. I don't know whether wrenching on it as tight as you can would be enough, or whether this is a symptom indicating that there is something loose internally in the connection between the inner and outer wheels. Good luck!

    Threading the bobbin


    Threading the bobbin - winding thread onto the bobbin.

    Position the new empty bobbin onto the vertical bobbin rod next to the end wheel. Click the rod to the right to engage drive. Hold the outer end wheel with left hand, and rotate the inner wheel anticlockwise by about a 1/2 turn (it stops) this removes drive from the foot and needle mechanism.

    From a spool of thread on the top, thread to a loop/post on the left on the top. Then back to the bobbin you want to wind. Thread through a hole from the inside-out. Hold the thread vertically above the bobbin while you depress the footswitch to start winding. Let go when it's turned a few times.

    Move bobbin shaft left, and tighten end wheel after winding enough.

    Fitting bobbin-

    Move footplate towards you, insert bobbin in hole so that bobbin rotates anticlockwise when thread is pulled, then pull thread into the fine notch towards you. After this position thread away from you, and slide the footplate closed.

    To start / load thread. Hold the end 3" of the thread through the needle behind the sewing foot. hand crank towards you to sew first stitch in air. This should retrieve the lower thread - which you can catch with a handy pair of scissors. Then pull both threads rearwards - ready to sew.
