Question about New Home HF-106

1 Answer

My needle won't grab the bobbin thread but if I put some fabric in and start to sew the bobbin thread comes through. However, the bottom thread is all bunched up and causes the machine to jam.

The looping on the underside sounds like a needle thread tension problem. 1st off check top (needle) threading then turn machine by hand to pick up bobbin thread

Top thread will not loop bobbin thread


Try re treading it. After you have guided the thread thru the eye of the needle turn the wheel until the needle goes all the way down. Keep turning and as the needle starts to come up pull on the needle thread and it should loop the bottom thread and pull until both come back to the top. Now you are ready to sew.

When sewing straight stitch the needle thread was looping up on the bottom now while trying to adjust, the needle doesnt grab the bobbin thread


You have a tension issue. Use the dial on the front of the machine. to turn the tension tighter.Use a double length of fabric and sew a little, turn knob, sew a little, turn knob. Continue doing this till top and bottom thread are equal and grabbing in the center. Good Luck... xo

Singer sewing machine pulls fabric and snarls


try changing the needle--make sure the needle is the right one for the
fabric being sewed.
rethread the machine using every thread guide
try turning the bobbin the opposite direction
clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint
you may also have to use a washable stabilizer with the fabric

Top thread tangled in bobbin.


try changing the needle---flat side goes to the back side of the machine
also check the top tension
depending on the fabric your sewing on--the needle & thread have to work
with the fabric--example light fabric needs a different needle & thread than
a heavy fabric
check to see if the thread is coming off the thread take up lever when you
sew.

I needle comes unthreaded whenever we try to sew. We've both tried numerous times and it doesn't make a sitch. The bobbin seems to be done correctly b/c the bottom thread comes up with no problem....


first let's deal with the needle becoming unthreaded, Keeping the needle threaded is easy, always keep thread tails of 3 to 6 inches on the top thread & bobbin at all times, & make sure the thread tail are pulled behind the needle before you start to sew,, this will ensure that the thread will not come out of the needle when you start to sew.

you mention the fabric is thin,, do you have a needle that's right for the fabric your sewing?
thin fabric needs a different needle than blue jeans fabric, check your top tension & see what the setting is on, usually 3 to 5 is good.

when the needle & thread are right for the fabric then the sewing is good.

also clean under the needle plate & bobbin area for loose threads or lint

also it's a possibility that the machine could be out of time & would need to be serviced by a sewing machine repair shop-as they have the tools for the job

The bobbin thread wont come up when lowering the needle


The bottom thread won't come up?
Make sure you:
-Have the top threaded and through the eye of the needle (Basics are best to check, I've missed it once or twice! lol)
-Are holding the tail of the top thread when you lower your needle and pull it back up (Hold it too tight though, and it might not grab)
-Have an inch or two of "tail" or extra thread for the needle to grab on your bobbin thread (sometimes it won't grab if there's not much there)
-Have all your lower pieces in and secure. (Mine tend to jump around if I'm not putting 'em in right)
If it's still not grabbing, I'm not sure. Sorry, hope it helps.

Top thread from spool somehow gets out of the needle when sewing. Sometimes top thread breaks; other times it just escapes the needle. I redid threading from top and from bobbin to see if that would fix....


Try loosening the tension and pulling a longer string of thread. Also, if the needle is not at the highest point, when you start sewing, the thread will pull out.

Needle won't grab thread from bobbin


Sometimes you have inserted the needle wrong, make sure that the needle faces the rear, if that is not it, try a new needle. Make sure that you have threaded the bobbin right, by your manual, and have at least a 6 inch tail, hold your top thread and move your handwheel towards you, not away from you and it will grab the thread.
