Question about Toyota Sewing Machines

Open Question

Toyota 2440 Ever since I opened the hook race cover I've not been able to get it all back together in a way that will allow the needle to pick up the thread. It is being impeded and the wheel to move the needle meets resistence, then breaks the needle. I have the outer cover coreectly in place with the little spur in the hole at the bottom, and the inner hook seems to only sit in one position where it completes the oval with the hook at top pointing right. The bobbin would seem to sit with the access point at the top, where there is a gap. No other position seems to make sense. The only manual picture on p39 does not show a clear picture of the hook and bobbin alignment. It was all working fine before I accidentally opened the cover to refill the bobbin. Cam anyone spot what's. Wrong and suggest the correct alignment please?

SOURCE: Bobbin problems

Any time you have looping on the bottom, it is almost always related to the upper tension and not anything in the bobbin area.
A good way to troubleshoot this is to turn the machine off, blow out the upper tension disk assemblies with canned air, (the machine needs to be off because most canned air uses butane as a propellant. Butane + electricity = bad;) replace your needle, and rethread your machine. Once you've threaded it to the point where you're about to put the thread through the needle, "floss" the thread forward and backward to ensure that the thread seats correctly into the tension assemblies.
Set your tension to around 4.5 for most applications, and drop your presser foot. Give the thread a gentle tug to see if the tensions have engaged the thread, then thread the needle.

If doing this does not address the problem, you probably need to have your tensions professionally calibrated. This is also true if the needle is in fact hitting something in the bobbin area. This is usually caused by the machine's timing being out of alignment, which is not something that can be fixed at home.

Good luck,

-R

SOURCE: while sewing the bobbin case moves, wheel locks up, needle locks

Im not sure if this will help but thought I would pass it along. My Pfaff 6122 tells me to check bobbin for thread unrolling clockwise before you place it back in the machine. I had mine turned to un roll counter clockwise, this is wrong, the bobbin will fall out when you pull on the thread while you are holding it in your hand. You may just keep putting it in backwards. Hope this works for you. J.R.

SOURCE: needle will not pick up the bobbin thread, gets

Oh boy! I've worked on industrial sewing machines for over 30 years, but the home sewing machines are like comparing cadillacs to mopeds. No offense, but if you want performance out of a machine try an industrial. It will shock you with the difference. Be glad to help you find the right one.
Anyway, the problem you are having is quite common. First, make sure it is threaded right especially the moving spring on the needle thread tension) and the needle is new. This generally covers 75% of the problem. Make sure the bobbin thread is threaded correctly.
If you are still having the problem remove the bobbin/bobbin case and observe the needle/hook point relationship as you turn the handwheel. The hook point should pass behind the needle at the scarf of the needle (indention just above eye of needle) If it is not so the needle bar may have moved up on you. Did the machine get jammed?
I'm not sure about the rod you're talking about but lets try this first.

My sewing machine shark euro-pro 361 is jammed. Needle will not move. What do I do


See if you can remove the bobbin from the machine. Most likely the bobbin and upper threads are entangled and have trapped the needle. You can remove the presser foot and loosen the needle from the needle bar (as though you are going to remove it). Then if you get a small pair of scissors in there and start nipping thread pieces and removing them with tweezers, you may be able to loosen it up.

I misunderstood the cleaning instructions and removed the screw holding in the hook race.


It should just slot in one way only. Try it 180 Degrees around.
If the timing between the Needle and the hook is wrong, when the needle is about to lift, set the hook to be about 3 degrees off the needle line. This position may need tweaking but is usually about right. Thread the needle and manually turn the machine. The needle should lift and the cotton should loop for the hook to pick up.

Where to oil my singer 2263 ?


The 2263 only needs oil on the hook race (below the bobbin case). The complete cleaning procedure for this area is, with the needle fully up, remove the bobbin case and rotate the arms that hold the hook outwards. Remove the hook cover and the hook. Wipe the area under the hook cover and hook with a soft cloth. Put 1-2 drops of sewing machine oil just to the right of the center of this area. Rotate the hand wheel until the hook race is on the left side of the bobbin area. Then replace the hook and hook cover. Snap the arms back towards the center and insert the bobbin in the bobbin case.

With the bobbin out and the needle up, you should also unscrew the faceplate and wipe the feed dogs with your machine brush. (For best results, clean this before you oil. If you do not do this first, you may brush lint and bits of thread into the hook race and risk jamming this part.)

For pictures, see http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1213_oiling-2263.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Bernina 130. The upper needle is working but it does not seem to be abLe to catch the bottom thread. Had this machine for 12 years so I know how to put the bobbin in. Any ideas?


Firstly, I assume you've cleaned-out under the stitch-plate and after removing the bobbin, have removed the hook/shuttle, cleaned the hook race and given the hook race a drop of oil. Whilst you've got the hook/shuttle out, just check that the point is not damaged. Also, if you've got the lightweight hook/shuttle often fitted to these machines (it's black plastic with a metal outer/point), make sure there's no needle damage to the plastic - sometimes this can catch the thread as the hook rotates, preventing the loop from being picked-up. After doing that, check if you can sew straight stitch with the needle in centre, fully left and fully right. If it works in one location but not the others, there could be a number of issues such as timing/synchronisation or possibly the needle bar is offset front-to-back so that there's too large a spacing between the needle and hook.

The needle shaft wont go up or down when I step on the foot pedal and I cannot turn the wheel to try to do it manually.


If you can not turn the handwheel at all there is a bind in the machine somewere. The most comon place that this will happen is in the hook/bobbin/race area. Follow these steps and it may fix your problem.
Remove needle and bobbin case.
We need to open the race and remove the hook. (The race is the black round part that the bobbin goes inside.)
On the left part of the race there is a small steel clip that you push to the left and it should fall open.
Then remove the hook, it may have fallen out alreay. (It is just right behind the race.)
Clean out that area and make sure there is no broken needle/lint/ ect.
Test to see if handwheel is moving freely with the parts out.
If so lubricate the hook and put it all back together. Should be ready to sew.
Hook needs to be lubricated every 2-3 bobbins

If this does not fix it probably will need to take it in for repair.
Also check to make sure your bobbin winder is not on (I dont think that is it but ill mention it).
Hope this helps

Can't reassemble shuttle hook and shuttle race


the hook driver (still in machine) is 1/2 moon shape. The hook is also 1/2 moon shape. If you set the machine on its back, it's easier. Set the hook 1/2 into the other 1/2 of the hook driver to make a circle. Then put the hook cover on (machine still on its back) with the tabs for the twist locks pointed out. Needle gaurd to the top of the machine. Snap the twist locks in place and viola!

Putting bobbin back


you need to set the hook (1/2 moon shaped object) in first. That sits inside the circle. The round race sets in over top of the hook, a lot of times there is a pin or slot that has to match up on the race. Then slide the little arms back into place and you are all set.
