Question about Sewing Machines

My machine will not sew

It will go real slow and sounds funny, the needle seams to get stuck down in the bobbin and I did do all the things that were in the manual clean the bobbing and put a drop oil in there and cleaned the feed dogs and changed the needle. This started when I was sewing some medium weight fabric that has a lite rubber backing. was going along good and the needle started to get caught down in the bobbin and some trouble getting in out but I did and cleaned items listed above.

When sewing anything that is rubberized you should use silicon spray this will help the fabric move along and will keep the needle from accumulating the rubber buildup and sticking in the bobbon casing.

Why does the needle keeps getting stuck in the bobbin


Sounds like you've got a thread jam going on. Take the bobbin and bobbin case out, take the needle plate (=throat plate) off the machine, and clean all the lint and bits of thread and other gunge out of there. Reassemble. Rethread with the presser foot up. Fetch up the bobbin thread and pull bobbin and top thread ends under and behind the presser foot. Then start each seam like this:
1. Fabric under the presser foot; lower needle with handwheel or needle up/down key into the beginning of the seam.
2. Drop the presser foot.
3. Hold the ends of the bobbin and top thread behind the presser foot while you take the first 2-3 stitches
4. Drop the thread ends and sew normally.

Can`t rewind bobbin


Sounds like it may be a bad solenoid or clutch inside. When it tries to reverse direction to rewind is sounds like it's getting stuck. The lights comming on might be an indication that the machine detects a problem. You could try to open it and see if any of the gears are broken or out of place or if any of the teeth on the gears are missing. But I would get it serviced if you're not comfortable with opening it up.

My sewing machine does not move at all


Is the bobbin winder on? If so, turn it off.
Otherwise, is there power to the machine?
And this happened while you were sewing? Cut the thread above the needle eye. Rock the handwheel back and forth firmly to try to cut the thread jam below the needle plate with the sewing hook. If that doesn't work, open the bobbin case area of the machine and try to pull the bobbin case out, cutting any threads you can see with a seam ripper. Still won't come? Take the needle out of the needle clamp and throw it away (it's bent!), and take the screws out of the needle plate (=throat plate) and take the needle plate off after cutting any threads you can reach under the fabric. Keep cutting and pulling out any thread you find, and eventually, you'll be able to turn the handwheel. Clean all the thread bits, lint, and junk out of the area under the needle plate, the bobbin and bobbin case, and the shuttle area... there will be directions in your manual on how to clean the machine, including the shuttle area. Reassemble. Put in a brand new needle, right way around and fully up in the needle clamp. Rethread from scratch.
Always hold the thread ends behind the presser foot for the first couple of stitches of each seam.

Singer Prelude 8280 Sewing Machine stuck


Is the knob on the side, where you loosen the needle to rewind the bobbin, tightened? Also, there may be some threads in the bobbin case messing things up. Unplug the machine if you are checking the bobbin case.

My thread keeps breaking when I sew over a seam, I have replaced the needle, tried a different cotton, & replaced the bobbin case & it still keeps breaking any suggestions?


Hi
You seem to have done everything as correctly as expected.
There are some minor things that could be disturbing yet.
Make sure that needle is exacly correct in her place and that the thread isthread from the correct side. One thing I knowworks wellwhen sewing thick parts is to hold the fabric in such a way that it is a bit streched under the needle and to let the machine go slowly over the thick bits.
Hope this will be of some help

Top thread keeps breaking


This sounds like a backwards needle. Take out the needle and when you re-insert it back in, make sure that put the flat side to the back.

I've got a Necchi 535FA with a bobbin thread that doesn't hook.


Sounds to me like you may have put the needle in backwards. The flat side should be to the back.

Fabric stuck in hole where bobbin is underneath


Turn off the machine and remove the needle.

Lift the presser foot and remove the inner hoop and then the rest of the hoop.

Move the fabric to one side and cut the threads with a seam ripper.

Open the needle plate.

Remove the bobbin and bobbin case.

Clean away any thread or lint in this area.

You should repeat the last three steps routinely as lint and thread snips can accumulate in these area and cause mis-stitching.

Replace the bobbin case, bobbin and needle plate.

Use a new needle.
