How do I get the bobbin to thread after I put it back in the holder.


Do you have the bobbin holder threaded right? You have to put the bobbin into the holder and follow the thread path, then pull it up to the top and turn the needle by hand until the thread picks up the bobbin thread. then pull both threads up and to the back then slide your bobbin plate back into the machine and you are ready to sew. Hopes this helps. wish I could draw you a picture.

try changing the needle-flat side goes to the back of the machine
rethread the machine top & bobbin--make sure to use every top thread guide
clean under the needle plater & in the bobbin area for lint or loose threads

CANT GET TENSION SET AND ITS SO FAR OFF DONT KNOW WHERE TO START....vogue stitch old..model.label on back says model 1300/1500 or mercury model 704


try www.sewusa.com repairs page for troubleshooting help. start by cleaning and oiling machine. then wind a new bobbin and put in a new needle. load bobbin into bobbin case and ensure thread goes into tension spring. now dangle bobbin case by holding thread tail, bobbin should hang in the air but release thread if you pull it. adjust the tension screw on case 1/4turns only and test again until you get it tight enough to 'dangle'. now load bobbin into rotary hook of machine and thread top. now test sew and adjust top tension in small increments if neede to balance the stitch. but if top tension is wirking okay then 4-6 range should be fine.

The bobbin thread keeps ending up in a big tangle as I'm trying to sew a simple stitch. Bobbin is loaded correctly, thread tension was adjusted both up and down in number, tried straight basic stitches...


Suggest taking the machine back to where you bought it and have them try to help if you are doing something wrong, or replace the machine if it has an internal problem. Good luck!

Trying to sew straight stitch but stitch loose and lots of thread on bottom


No top tension, follow manual to thread top again and make sure tension dial is set to 5 and thread is pulled between the tension discs fully.

How to thread the bobin on a elna air electronic su. where do i put the loose end when threading the bobin


I assume you mean when you wind a bobbin full of thread??

You take the end of thread from your spool through the tension device or an eyelet on top of the machine, then back to the bobbin on the bobbin winder and thread the loose end through a top hole on the bobbin. Click the bobbin in against the stop and press on the pressure foot to start to wind. Hold the top thread for a bit as the bobbin starts to fill and then once it has been covered by a row or two of thread, stop and cut of the loose end from top of the bobbin. Now continue to wind the bobbin until it cuts out as it fills against the stopper. Nudge the thread with a finger tip as it spools onto the bobbin to help get the bobbin filled top and bottom and not just in the middle. (bit like when you coil the garden hose onto the reel, it always wants to go in the middile only and then jams up LOL).

Also a really good idea to place your scissors handle into the top of the thread spool to slow/control it as the thread reels off it. This helps give an even tension on the thread going onto the bobbin which really helps with stitch quality later.

Cant put thread on bobbin


Hold the large wheel at the end of the machine firmly while you unloosen the smaller wheel inside. this will free up the sewing mechanism. tighten back up after bobbin is wound.

Bobbin help please!


Take out the raceway and check for broken threads/lint. Unthread the machine and put in a new needle taking care to insert it correctly. It may be that the needle is slightly bent. Put everything back carefully and check it is running smoothly with NO THREAD first(no bobbin thread either-use an empty bobbin). This will prove there is nothing catching. If it catches when you thread it then you are having a problem with incorrect threading.
