Sewing machine 385 16331301. I am having problem with the thread coming off the hook arm while sewing, which in turn stops the machine with thread piling up in the bobbin area.


Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread. This allows the thread to seat firmly in the tension disk.

After 2 or 3 stitches needle gets locked with balled thread


Lint and or thread has collected behind or under the bobbin. use a q-tip (cotton) and swipe out and around the bobbin and bobbin case. Use a can of air and blow out and around the bobbin area. Remove the spool thread from the machine and rethread the spool and bobbin thread in machine.

Bobbin thread is jammin up after about 3 rotations of wheel on my janome 8077 - is this a timing problem?


try changing the needle
make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
make sure the bobbin is not over filled
make sure the bobbin is not damaged
it's very possible that the machine could be slightly out of time

Thread is gathering under cloth


Check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out.

Thread keeps breaking


Have you got the needle in the correct way around - the thread must lie in the groove in the needle. Is the machine correctly threaded? Try release the tension a bit and check that the bobbin tension is not too loose and bunching up under the needle plate. The instructions for bobbin tension setting are:- Check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out. This might not be exactly the same as yours but should give you an idea of the position.

Hopefully you have a new needle in the right way and not a dull bent one. And are putting your bobbin in correctly so that when looking at the back of the bobbicase and when pulling the thread it turns clockwise. Counter-clockwise things like this will happen. Also that the foot is up when threading ensuring that the thread goes between the tension disks. Serious jam ups can also cause it to get out of timing which you may need a tech for.

Thread knotting around bobbin case


hello, I had the exact same problem and could not find the solution until i took my machine to my sewing sensei and i solved my tedious problem. It was actually not a tension problem at all but a threading problem. Make sure you have threaded your bobbin correctly and that when you pull on the bobbin thread that the bobbin turns the right way. (mine must spin anti clockwise to work)  Make sure that when you pull up the bobbin thread using the needle that it is not over the feed dogs connective bar but under it. A big problem when the thread gets caught around the bobbin case wheel is that the thread is looped around the feed dogs once and that causes the thread to get caught around the bobbin wheel. In conclusion, thread the bobbin correctly and read over your instruction book before spending the money to get it fixe in s shop.

Getting the Bobbin threaded in the Machine


when this has happened to me, the upper thread has somehow run amuck. check to make sure the top thread is STILL routed properly. It might have nothing to do with the bobbin.
