Thread suddenly jams , bobbin won't turn,after cleaning, re-threading etc makes one stitch with wheel turn then jams again.


Besides installing a brand new needle (which you've already done), unthread the top thread. (Cut the thread below the spool, raise the presser foot, and pull the thread DOWN from the thread tail end--NEVER PULL thread UP!)

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct. Set the upper tension to the midway point and then tweak it so both threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

When stitching on my Juki 1541 the top stitching is perfect but the stitching from the bobbin is loose. how to fix, I did try sighing the screw on the bobbing , did not work please help!!!!!!!


When the bobbin stitching is off the problem is usually with the top thread. Unthread and rethread the machine making sure it is threaded correctly and is securely in the tension disk. If you still have trouble try using a new needle.

Husky 910 overlocker..left needle will not sew stitches...does not unthread just won't form stitches


Be sure to install a brand new needle. Verify it is the correct needle for your machine and it is installed facing the correct direction.

Remove all the thread from your machine. (Clip the threads below the thread spools, RAISE the presser foot, and gently pull all the threads DOWN through the needle--NEVER up!)
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify that you are threading each thread in the order specified in the manual--failure to do so will cause your machine to malfunction.
When threading, give each thread an extra little tug when going through the tension disk.
Set all the tensions to the midway point for a 3 or 4 thread overlock.
Test your machine.

If the left needle still fails to stitch, then your machine may need a timing adjustment.

My Jancome 7933 will not make any stitches


Try installing a brand new needle.

Sergers are very finicky and if they are not threaded absolutely perfectly, they will show their attitude.

Remove all the thread from the machine. ALWAYS Raise the Presser Foot and rethread from the beginning. Make sure to thread each thread in the correct order (usually, upper looper, lower looper, then needles). If you don't get the threads in the proper order, it will most likely not work. Be sure that the thread paths are correct for all threads. Give each thread an extra little tug when going through the tension disk to make sure it is seated completely. Pull all the thread tails under and out the back side of the presser foot before beginning to stitch. Set the tension disks to the midway point between high & low number (this is the factory standard, although each machine may require some adjustment).

Test your machine and hopefully you will get a chain stitch.

Also, if a thread breaks or comes unthreaded, it is usually best to unthread totally and rethread from the beginning.

If that doesn't work, it is most likely a timing issue where the needles & loopers are not arriving at the correct time to connect. Probably requires service.

How do I stop my lower looper unthreading?


Best course of action when a thread breaks or comes unthreaded is to completely remove all the thread from the machine and rethread from the beginning--RAISE the presser first, make sure each thread is threaded in the proper order specified in the manual, make sure that each thread path is correct. Be sure to pull at least 6 inches of thread tail through the loopers and needles and pull them toward the back of the machine so they are under the presser foot before beginning to stitch.

NOTE: raising the presser foot releases the tension disks so the threads will slip into the tension disks. It is always helpful to give each thread a little tug below the tension disk to ensure the thread is seated all the way.

I have a Janome Mycompact which is about 20 years old. When stitching, the thread from the bobbin is a straight line and the thread from the needle is perfect. How do I adjust or fix the way the bobbin...


Unthread the machine. Set the upper thread tension to 5 and raise the presser foot. Rethread the machine. With the presser foot up, pull about 12" of the upper thread through the needle and make note of how much tension you feel. Lower the presser foot and you should feel the thread get very tight. Also, make sure that you are using good sewing machine thread and not hand quilting thread, upholstery thread or too heavy weight thread for the machine.

I either have no stitch at all or the thread on the bottom bunches up or the thread just comes outr of the needle . I have tried almost every setting and stitch but cannot fing the proper tension


It is in your top threading. Totally unthread, insert a new needle (flat side facing the rear of machine), now rethread, put the presser foot up, pull top thread, it should feed smoothly, now lower the presser foot, pull the thread, it should barely move. This should seat the thread in the tension discs. Put your tension at 3. Good luck

Sewing machine sews the first stitch and then needle comes unthread


It probably is your threading, rethread, then with the presser foot up, pull on the thread, it should feed smoothly, now put the presser foot down, pull thread again, it should barely move. Sometimes that seats the thread in the tension discs. Check your tension, mine is set at 3 and leave enough of a thread tail, 3-4 inches. Hope this helps.

Hi, I'm trying to sew a silky fabric and the stitches on the bottom keep getting jumbled and the top thread breaks


My guess is that you have lost all of your upper tension and you may have your needle in backward.
Unthread the machine.
Raise the presser foot. Turn the handwheel until the take-up lever is at it's highest position. Set the upper tension dial/knob to 5. Remove the needle and replace it making sure that the flat side of the needle shank is to the back. Thread the machine.
With the presser foot up, the upper thread should pull through easily and then grab when the presser foot is lowered.
Test sew.
The upper tension pulls the stitches up and the lower tension pulls the stitches down. When they pull properly, the stitch is even.

When i use sewing cloth in backside the thread will too loose then i use tension tight it correct in 8 number but manual book says 4 or 5 is correct wat can i do help me


Unthread your machine and set the tension to 4.5. rethread your machine up to the needle and then put the presser foot down. If the thread pulls hard, your machine is threaded right if it pulls easily, the thread is not thru the tension wheel correctly.

Rule of thumb:: loops on the top, problem on the bottom.
loops on the bottom, problem on the top.
