Question about White Sewing Sewing Machines

White 3100 just knots in stitching

When sewing anything, the machine just stitches knots and skips. Called the manufacturer's troubleshooting line and they suspect the timing belt. Is this easy to fix on my own? We moved a few times so it had a few jostles so it may be possible that this could have something to do with its new knotting while stitching scenario. Any other possibilities- I don't want to go through the time in searching for the part and repairing if it could be a slew of other things.

When you say knotting, do you mean a snarl up of looped thread on the underside. If so check top thread tension

SOURCE: machine won't stitch a complete stitch

The "knotting up" can reveal a lot. If you have loose threads on one side or the other, the tension on the opposite side will be the culprit.
So if the threads are on the underside as you sew, it is the top tension. Top tension ought to be between 4 & 6 (this variation to allow for the different weights of fabric in your projects).

If tensions appear correct, and the thread is definately in the channel between the discs, try raising presser foot, remove thread and with a strip piece of fabric 8 - 10" (20 - 25cm) gently insert the fabric strip and clean between the discs with a see saw / to and fro action.

It may be there is lint trapped between the discs, this will keep them slightly apart and reduce the actual tension, sometimes dramatically.

If the loose threads are on the top, it is bobbin tension that is loose, it too may have lint in the spring and be giving a "false" tension.
I would not recommend fiddling with bobbin tension without being shown, it may end up with missing small screws and spring pieces.

Hope this is of some help,

Skipped stitches


Skipped stitches could result from several different origins. First, easiest, and least expensive thing, try a brand new needle. However, if it is failing to pick up the bobbin thread all together, then it is probably out of time (search for sewing machine timing or take it for service).

Here are other suggestions for intermittent skipping:
