    Hi, I have solved it, I hope. I took out the bobbin and us clicked the bobbin holder and reinserted it. There wasn't a thread jam but I think something had moved out of place. Thanks for your help

Hai, I think your machine timing is changed. So you can't sewing properly. Please check the timing and put the oil everyday all oil parts properly.

What did it end up being? I had the same issue with my machine today. It happened for no apparent reason, while.I was in the middle of a stitch. I was sewing with "minky" for the first time, so I assumed the fuzz had clogged up the machine, so I removed the plate and cleaned beneath the bobbin area, and it seemed to be working again. I sewed 2 sides of a blanket and the problem resumed. I repeated the steps I'd taken before, but can't get it functioning normally.
I can crank the hand wheel (not loaded with thread) once or twice and it moves freely, but as I turn a couple more times, it gets tighter and tighter until it won't move.

What's the deal? I'm so frustrated!

SOURCE: needle will not pick up bobbin thread when sewing

double check the upper and lower tensions they often need to be changed to suit types of fabric and threads

SOURCE: why is my singer SEWING MACHINE prelude HAND WHEEL RESISTING

Make sure the bobbin winder is in the position away from the bobbin stopper. When you fill a bobbin, you have to push the "spindle" towards the handwheel. If you do not push the "spindle" back into position (away from the handwheel), the wheel will remain locked.

Tried to sew, the threads got mixed up and the needle stopped working. removed the needle, still does not work even when I move the hand wheel.


You could have a bunch of threads wrapped in the bobbin area. Check and see if you can clean them out. Otherwise, service may be your other option.

Why is the wheel on the right hand side of my machine very stiff when turning


the "hand wheel" on a sewing machine is meant to only advance the mechanism far enough to thread and set the needle , the motor should be used to run the machine else wise , as its turning every thing inside the machine to keep all the functions in "TimE" as models increase in there complexity there hand wheels are harder to move as more stuff needs to be kept in "time" now , also on some models the bobbin winder is directly powered by the hand wheel , if its not in use it should be disengaged completely

Brother sewing machine cs6000 hand wheel hard to turn by hand


before you race the machine into a service centre, most hard to turn problems are from thread and fluff wound around the bobbin shaft in the base of the machine. Use a pin/ needle to remove the thread /fluff then oil the machine using light machine oil. If it is still stiff , take it to a service centre.

The bobbin thread will not raise with the needle


1. REPLACE NEEDLE W/FLAT PART AWAY FROM YOU.
2. MAKE SURE THE TOP THREAD IS PROPERLY THREADED.
3. INSURE BOTTOM BOBBIN IS ROTATING RIGHT DIRECTION. (USUALLY COUNTERCLOCKWISE) ALLOW THREE INCHES OF THREAD PULLED AWAY.
4. HOLD TOP THREAD W/LEFT HAND AND ROTATE HAND WHEEL TOWARDS YOURSELF. DOES IT BRING THE BOBBIN THREAD UP?
5. IF THE BOBBIN CARRIER IS INSTALLED PROPERLY THE HOOK (POINTED OBJECT) UNDER THE BOBBIN SHOULD "HOOK" THE TOP THREAD AND BRING THE THREAD AROUND THE BOBBIN THREAD. THE NEEDLE AND TOP THREAD SHOULD BE PULLING THE BOBBIN THREAD UPWARDS. IF THE HOOK DIDN'T "HOOK" THE NEEDLE THREAD THE PROBLEM IS THE DISTANCE OF THE NEEDLE AND HOOK APART OR THE TIMING. YOU MAY TRY TO MOVE THE NEEDLE TO THE LEFT SIDE AND AGAIN TRY ROTATING THE HAND WHEEL. IF IT DOESN'T WORK THEN TRY TO MOVE THE NEEDLE ALL THE WAY TO THE RIGHT AND ROTATE THE HAND WHEEL. IF IT BRINGS THE BOBBIN THREAD UPWARDS IN EITHER CASE IT WILL SHOW A PROBLEM WITH TIMING. THIS WILL NEED TO BE ADJUSTED BY A PROFESSIONAL.
6. REMEMBER TO PUT ONE DROP OF OIL ON THE RACE TRACK BEFORE YOU PUT THE BOBBIN CARRIER IN.

Turn wheel not turning easy


Hand wheel "stuck" because you have an obvious jam. Remove bobbin and clean bobbin case, put good quality sewing machine oil on oscillating hook and put new needle in flat side toward back all the way UP, and make sure presser foot UP when you thread machine. Jimmy

I have a singer cxl electronic sewing machine and i have a problem with the needle either not moving or stopping when stitching the larger motifs or the zigzag stitch, somtimes the needle jut moves too...


The needle either not moving or stopping is a sign that the machine is jamming. Here's the answer for the question "My machine is jammed" from the FAQs on Singer's web site at http://www.singerco.com/support/faqs.html

A jammed machine is caused by thread being caught in the hook. Remove the upper thread and the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towards you (counterclockwise) by hand and remove any thread in the bobbin case area. *Always turn the hand wheel towards you. Turning the hand wheel away from you (clockwise) can cause the machines timing to become unaligned and jam your machine. Also, always make sure the presser foot is in the down position before you start sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will jam your machine in the bobbin case.

Your description of the needle hitting the plate or foot is an indication that the machine's timing has become unaligned which can be caused as indicated above by turning the hand wheel away from you - the correct way is to *Always turn the hand wheel towards you.

Hand wheel spins without moving the needle


I used to have an old Bernina that had an inner and outer hand wheel. Loosening the inner wheel disconnected the needle bar from the motor so you could wind the bobbin without running the needle up and down. It sounds to me like your machine has the same feature, but resistance on the needle makes the inner wheel loosen up. I don't know whether wrenching on it as tight as you can would be enough, or whether this is a symptom indicating that there is something loose internally in the connection between the inner and outer wheels. Good luck!

Machine No. K1831(256) No.28 how do you set up the stop motion wheel to wind bobbins. It either winds bobbins whilst sewing or just free wheels. I think there must be a way of adjusting this action....

Fabric not feeding and jamming occurs


When this happens it is because the thread tension was not right so it gets stuck under the bobbin case and the feed dogs. Use a bigger lint brush and take out the bobbin casing and clean out the shuttle. When you rethread pull slightly on the thread before you feed it through the needle. This will make sure the thread is properly in the tension discs.
