    the bobbin holder slips out of the holder beneath the footplate very easily.

    I found that I had to reset it frequently.4I double checked all the threading...above and below

    using the manual.

    thank you for your interest and response.

    I just bought this as a refurbished machine from JSM distributors to take gthe straight stitc workload off of my embroidery machine

    Dear sir, i followed your advice. But i have spent so much effort and time with trying to get things right that I feel the need to get myself as far away as possible from any machine that has this plastic bobbin holder



    Now I cant get it to do a decent zig zag, and i fear that I will spend all my free time again ...getting this done.

    I am willing to sell the machine!!!! It is still on waranty..

    I dont mind selling it for the price less the price of a bobbin holder . I'm sure it will work well for a different owner.



    I would appreciate finding out if there is any simple but sturdy machine that does not have this sort of bobbin holder, that can do an excellent straight stitch and zigzag stitch , that doesnt cost the earth brand new.

    Thanks again

The bobbin case rests on the lip of the hook and is is held into place by the position bracket. The position bracket is located at about 5 o'clock and has a small square end with a buffer spring. It must be positioned to hold the bobbin case securely and also allow the thread to pass through freely. It may be out of adjustment but may not.

If the bobbin case has turned, it is very likely to have suffered damage as it is made of a soft carbon fiber material. It not polished off, these damaged areas can snag the thread and jam the machine and create tension problems. Some gouges, burrs and needle punctures can be carefully sanded but you may need a new bobbin case. Use a 1500 grit sandpaper to smooth off the rough edges.

Simplicity sewing machine SL 9240 was giving to me and when I try to sew the needle keeping hitting the bobbin holderr.


On the right side you have two knobs to make adjustments. The lower knob will move the needle left or right so it won't hit the bobbin holder.

How to adjust placment of twin needle so it doesnt hit edge of bobbin holder?


The needle should not hit the bobbin holder at all. Do you have the needle inserted all the way? If it is too low, it will hit. If you are saying the needle is hitting the sides of the needle plate where the needle goes through, then the needle is too wide for the plate. Either use a narrower twin needle or see is a needle plate with a wider needle hole came with your machine. Some decorative stitches can't be used with a twin needle because the combination of width of stitches and width of needle is too wide. In that case, narrow the stitch width until the needle doesn't hit the needle plate or use a narrower twin needle. I hope I have helped and answered some of your questions. Good luck.

My needle keeps hitting the plate and breaking. How do I fix this?


Take the needle plate off and see where it needle is connecting with the bobbin. The bobbin case may not be in place and this is what the needle is hitting.

My DB2-B797 suddenly has needle breaking because needle is hitting bobbin. I need help with technical specs and needle positioning. PLEASE


Hi
First thing to check is are you using the correct needle, if it is too long this will hit the bobbin holder.
If the needle is the correct one, for some reason your timing is out or the needle bar has dropped lower than it should be.
I can't explain on here how to re-time as it is complicated.
If the timing is out it is very unusual as the working parts are locked in position.
Take out the thread, remove the needle plate and turn the machine over by hand watching the needle and see if it is actually hitting the bobbin or bobbin holder.

My needle keeps hitting the plastic bobbin holder - how can I fix this? Is the bobbin holder inserted wrong?


change the needle and see if it is still hitting because once they hit the case or the feed dog they very often get bent always change needles with different fabrics and types of thread

Bobbin holder seems to be broke and needle breaks


Hello,
Here are several things to try.

* When you insert your new needle, make sure it’s positioned correctly (usually with the flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your manual), that it goes all the way into the holder, and that the screw is securely tightened.


If there doesn’t seem to be a problem with your needle, try the following:

* Check your pressure foot and make sure it’s attached securely.


* Change your pressure foot Your pressure foot may be bent, causing your needle to hit it.


* Don’t sew over pins a needle that hits a pin can break. Always remove the pins from your fabric before they reach your needle.


* Don’t pull your fabric as you sew. You could be bending your needle back, causing it to hit your needle plate instead of going into the hole. Just guide your fabric, letting it feed on its own.


* Check your needle plate and make sure it's securely in position.


* Change your needle plate. If you’ve been using a straight stitch needle plate (a plate with a small hole, often used for sewing fine, delicate fabrics), switch to a needle plate with a wider hole.


* Check the position of your needle. Sewing machines with zigzag capability allow you to adjust the position of your needle – right, left, or center. If your needle is not positioned correctly, it may be hitting your needle plate or pressure foot.


* Un-thread your machine and remove your bobbin. Clean any loose thread or lint out of your
bobbin case. Re-thread your machine, reinsert and re-thread your bobbin.

* Change your bobbin. There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you sew.

Also, before you start to sew a seam, hold the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back
and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting
caught in your machine.

I hope these solutions help you.

Needle hitting bobbin plate


Is the needle inserted correctly with the flat side at the rear and fully up into the holder ?

If yes, take off the needleplate, remove bobbin case and slowly rotate the handwheel towards you watching the relationship between needle, and the "hook" of the moving "race".

Set on wide zig zag........when the needle is fractionally past it's lowest point, and starting to rise, the hook should be level with the left side of the needle when on the right hand stitch of the zig...the eye of the needle will be below the hook, and ready for thread to be picked up for the stitch to form.

Any other result will mean your timing needs adjusting.
