Juki Lu-562 breaking, fraying thread. The tread will fray and eventually break a lot. Is there anything else besides a different size needle or burrs on the foot plate for foot feed?


Be sure that you are using only fresh, good quality thread. Old or bargain bin thread will fray easily. Does the thread have little hairs (fibers) sticking out? If so, get rid of it. Try a different type of thread, ie polyester thread. (FWIW, Coats & Clark used by a stand-by, but it is a lesser-quality thread these days.) Be sure to use the same thread in the bobbin--polyester thread will tend to cut cotton. Try flipping the thread spool over so it feeds off in the opposite direction. Make sure the machine's bobbin area is clean of any lint or debris. The tension may be too tight. The thread may be mis-threaded or the thread is restricted somewhere, ie wrapped around a thread guide or the spool pin. Be sure the thread is running through the thread guide immediately above the needle. Remove the thread and rethread from the beginning. You might try a different type of needle, ie top-stitch needle. Top-stitch needles have a larger scarf that will protect the thread as it pierces the fabric multiple times before forming a stitch. A Top-stitch or Metafil needle has a larger eye to accommodate bigger thread. Are you sewing unusually coarse fabric? It is abrasive and could be causing the excessive fraying.

If the fraying continues, there may still be a burr somewhere.

Poor stitch quality


Tensions. Check tensions by pulling on bobbin thread and top thread separately. Check top thread tension with presser foot up and down. Also make sure feed dogs are feeding straight. Manually feed a sheet of paper through the machine to check feed dogs.

Singer - 241-12, bobbin thread not stitching


I have a 241-12 Singer. New to me. It was running great. Then the bobbin thread ran out. Put in one prewound bobbin that came with it, even though the bobbin appeared different. The bobbin thread didn't feed and the machine jammed up. I finally wound the old bobbin and put it in. It will only feed about 6" of thread before the bobbin thread breaks. It becomes so tight I can't get it to feed. Both bobbins will not feed. However I don't believe it's the bobbin tension because thread will pull through fine when pulled manually (if it hasn't been in the machine yet). What am I doing wrong?

Have a janome master craft 3000, just bought it used yesterday. Was sewing fine then all of a sudden it would stop pushing the material through like the needle was dull or something. Now it's doing it...


First do a process of elemination. Unthread the machine, both top and bottom, take out the needle. Place a piece of fabric under the pressure foot, lower the pressure, and depress the foot control. Does the fabric feed? If it does, then put in a NEW needle, thread up the machine, and see what happens. A dull needle won't prevent the fabric from feeding. If the fabric does not feed with no thread, then you have a pressure foot pressure problem, or a feed dog height problem, or a feed step motor problem, or possibly a board problem. If it only has a problem when you thread it up, then maybe you have a burr on the needle plate and the thread is hanging up on it and preventing the fabric from feeding. Check for all of these and if you still need assistance respond back.

Presser foot will not feed and the thread wont catch


The presser foot is not suppose to feed. It's purpose is to hold the fabric in place as the feed dogs feed the fabric from the front to the back of the machine as stitches are formed.

Check the needle to be sure it is installed with the flat side of the needle shank facing the back of the sewing machine.

Refer to your manual to be sure the bobbin thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the guides.

Pull the bobbin thread up by lowering the threaded needed down and then back up. Pull both threads under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Set the stitch length to 2.

Place a scrap of fabric under the presser foot. Holding onto the ends of both threads, lower the needle into the fabric for the first stitch.

If the machine still does not stitch, the machine may need to go in for maintenance as the timing may need to be adjusted.

If the feed dogs are not moving, this also needs to be repaired by sewing machine service tech.

Brother 8500D sewing/emb machine - upper thread stops feeding


If the thread is hanging up at the spool - this could be the way it was manufactured, a nick in the spool end or the thread is unwinding too fast, puddling and wrapping around the spool pin.

Keep the bobbin case and surrounding area clean and free of thread tangles and snips. Thread tangles in this area can cause the machine to stop.

When the presser foot is down on any sewing machine, the tension closes and you cannot manually pull the thread through.

Sulky and C & C black tends to fray more than other brands of thread.

If the problem continues, the machine will need to be serviced by a professional.

My prdect is fashionaire 2380.when i'm sew somthing it's break the thread,and it's stack


Check the thread spool to see if there is a nick where the thread is catching. If there is, you can smooth away the nick with an emery board, or just flip the spool so the thread is feeding from the bottom of the spool.

Sometimes the thread feeds too quickly from the spool and puddles around the spool pin. A thread net (can be purchased online or at a sewing machine dealer) can eliminate this.

Check the threading to be sure it is correct - always thread to top thread with the presser foot up.

Check the bobbin to be sure the thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the correct guides.

Refer to your manual for threading and bobbin position.

I need help in adjusting the feed dogs, they messed up when I adjusted the timing for the needle and bobbin.


When the sewing machine is properly timed, all the parts work together in a seamless flow of coordination. The needle moves from it highest point down toward the needle plate. The feed dogs reach the farthest point toward the back of the sewing machine. The feed dogs drop under the needle plate. This is just before the needle point reaches the needle plate. The needle continues to move down dragging the upper thread under the needle plate. It proceeds toward its lowest point.
The needle begins its rise back up. A loop of thread forms along the back of the needle. A special cut out on the back of the needle to accommodate this loop is called the scarf. The sewing machine hook slides behind the needle. The point of the hook slides into the thread loop and pulls the thread around the bobbin. The bobbin thread and upper thread wrap together. The needle and hook proceed through their actions under the needle plate. The feed dogs move under the needle plate from back to front.

The needle proceeds to rise again up out of the bobbin area exiting the needle plate. At the same time the feed dogs rise up out from under the needle plate. They begin to move from front to back as the needle continues to rise.
The thread from the bobbin flows through a bobbin tensioner providing resistance to the thread as it is drawn up by the upper thread knot. The upper thread is also under tension. This comes from the upper tension, thread guides, tension spring, and sewing machine take up lever.
The thread from top and bobbin grow increasingly tighter until they form a locked stitch in the middle of the fabric. This process is repeated for every stitch.
How do you adjust sewing machine timing?

The needle, hook, and feed dogs must move in harmony. If they fail to do so, the machine will not perform as expected. When the hook is just slightly out of time with the needle, you will notice skipped stitches. This may begin on only one side of the zig zag stitch or intermittently. If the timing is just a bit more out of sync, stitch formation will become impossible.
If the feed dog timing is out of sync, the fabric will not move through the machine as expected. Threads may bunch up or the fabric may just not move.
As you can see, timing is everything.
