SOURCE: Tacsew T500 : Needle continually comes unthreaded

No this machine does not use a bobbin. I just purchased one too and called the supplier to help me keep mine threaded. He said they do not take much tension at all. So check your tension and then when threading it, make sure your thread goes under the bar in the center of the tension disk, not on top of.
Good luck, once you get it going it does a beautiful job!!!! Love it, Love it!

SOURCE: Bernina 1090 Needle assembly stopped moving down

Hi,
There is a spring loaded catch on the needle bar assembly. It is designed to keep the needle bar from going up and down on command for basting. That way it can take fewer stitches while basting. Anyway, over time, with lint build up, use and not enough oiling, the needle bar clamp release can stick. It is located in the machine cover and hard to get at. It is located right at the point where the needle bar clamp (middle of needle bar) is. It looks pointed on top and about 3/8" tall and SHOULD be able to move front to back (as you are sitting at the machine. If you want to fix it your self, lay the machine on it's back to see up into the needle bar area, you can also see through the threading slot as well.to oil it with SEWING MACHINE oil (read not 3 n1 oil) and try to work it front to back until it breaks free and play with it until it springs back every time you push it. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: The needle constantly breaks while embroidering.

My foot does this with different thickness of fabrics, it will make the foot land in different, areas, sometimes making the needle hit the foot. Always check needle position before you start embroidering. once your hoop is ready, check the clearance. I often have to use a small roll of non slip material under the foot handle, the one used to bring the foot down. And I use this to adjust the needle postition so it will always land in the middle of the embroidery foot. There is also a way to adjust the height of the needle arm but that's too complicated to get into here and I've never personally tried it.

SOURCE: The needle shaft wont go

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

How to adjust pressure foot pressure on husqvarn viking disginer 1 sewing maching


I'm confused by your question, which mentions two machines. The presser foot pressure on a Tacsew T111-155 is adjusted by turning the knob on the left side, top of the machine that is directly over the needle. The Designer 1 mostly sets its own presser foot pressure, but it can be increased or decreased by following the procedure on p. 13 of the manual: http://new.husqvarnaviking.com/SiteMedia/Products/Machines/Support/Designer_I_manual_EN.pdf

Needle is not moving


Of course I have to guess here--not seeing the machine, but it appears that your motor is working fine. That would leave two possibilities, I think. The first is a defective foot pedal. The second is, when you push the bobbin winder, it engages a clutch that diverts power from the needle shaft to the winder. It is possible that the clutch is stuck. To find out, disengage the bobbin winder and press the foot pedal, and see if the bobbin winder spindle is still spinning.

The foot pedal wont move the needle


Ok, I am assuming that you have an old style machine where the hand hand wheel has the larger balance wheel on the outside and inner knob to release the drive to the needle and feed dogs. If that has been removed and not put back together properly it won't work.

There is a special locking washer inside those that have "fingers" pointing to the inside of the circle. They must be fit into the shaft correctly before the knob is returned into place and the little screw is tightened down.

This guy is a bit of a windbag but watch his video... you'll at least see the part I'm talking about. He shows the part at about 9:50 in the video.

I have a babylock 1556 and when I press the foot petal the belt turns, but it won't move the needle up and down. I took off the back so I could watch and see what was going on. I can see the belt...


On the side of the 'knob', look for another wheel that tightens against that, so it engages, that's what it sounds like. When that second wheel is loose, it won't run, it just spins. From the photo I can find of the unit, it looks like that second wheel is below it, but I can't be certain. Let me know how you make out. Please rate and comment, thank you,
Joe

Bernina 1630 needle will not move go side to side.


If you can pull the needle bar down manually and it springs back up, the basting clutch is stuck. By someone who knows how, it's a very easy fix. I would guide you here, but I don't know how to explain it. Plus, you have to be very careful not to damage the spring loaded clutch.
