SOURCE: Needle thread looping underneath, threads not interlocking at all

If the machine is now threaded, lift the presser foot.

Now, pull about 10" of thread through the needle.

The next time you thread the machine, lift the presser foot first.

When the presser foot is up, the tension control opens and allows the thread to "seat" into the control, then when the foot is down the control closes to the indicated setting.

When threading the machine with the foot is down, thread does not enter the tension control and when you start to sew, there is no tension on the thread.

No tension = loosey, goosey, loopy stitches underneath.

Because the lack of tension on the top thread, the bobbin thread cannot lock a proper stitch.

Good day!!!

If your screen stated"main motor blocked" then I suggest you remove the thread,both the top and the bottom.Please change the needle too.but If the problem is unsolved,kindly loosen or unscrew the casing which is in the front of the bobbin, then look/find anything that might be obstructing the bobbin. check again the thread, bobbin and needle.Also for the last thing put an oil to the parts which you think it needs it like the moving parts re-start or reboot it then leave for a whole night.
Thank you and good luck...

SOURCE: pfaff select 1540 bobbin thread jam

if there is a thread in the hook area try taking a pair of needle nose
pliers to try & get the thread out, if that doesn't work then you might
think about taking the machine to a sewing machine shop to have the
machine checked since the needle will not go up & down & handwheel
won't move

SOURCE: does not recognize when bobbin thread has run out

Clean out the bobbin area. Try to determine where you sensor is and used canned air to clean that. Hopefully it's just a dirty sensor and not a bad one.

Good luck

How to wind a bobbin for a 250 electronic Viking Husqvarna machine


Make sure that the presser foot is raised if you are winding a bobbin with the top thread threaded through the needle. Place the bobbin on the spool spindle with the mark (a stylized H) outwards. Bring the bobbin spindle down. Next pull the thread from the needle under the presser foot to the thread guide on the right. Bring the thread above the bobbin and wrap the thread around the bobbin several times. Cut off the excess thread on the thread knife and step on the foot control to wind the bobbin. When the bobbin winding is finished, remove the bobbin from the spindle. Cut the thread to separate the bobbin thread from the needle thread. Move the bobbin spindle up.

Sewingpartsonline.com has a link to the manual for the Husqvarna Viking 250 on the machine specific parts page (under Manuals), http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/viking-250-sewing-machine-parts.aspx . The direct link to the manual is http://manuals.husqvarnaviking.com/VSM/Husqvarna%20Viking/HVManual.nsf/5bc6115484660075c12575d2003f80e3/ecf97dd171581582852575ed00755e7a/$FILE/Viking%20210,%20230,%20250%20%20x.PDF . The bobbin winding steps are on page 12. There is also a method for winding a bobbin with a different thread from the top thread. See the manual.

I hope this helps.

Brand new machine, do I need to oil it? singer talent 3321 is suppose to be EASY...needle broke, now it will not sew, seems to be stuck and bobbin seems to not work.


1. You need to remove the bobbin case and adjust the tension. The tension should allow the thread to move with a slight tension. Clean the area with a qtip. The bobbin case sits in a an area that is called the race. The race needs one drop of oil. Replace everything.
2. Replace the needle. Make sure it is in the right direction. Thread the top while the foot is up. If the thread gets stuck while threading there is a problem. The thread should move easily while the foot is up. After you thread the machine except the needle you can put the foot down. Now pull on the thread. It should give you a slight amount of tension. Usually four is a good number. If the tension is too tight you can adjust as needed. Now, thread the needle. Hold the thread under the foot while you turn the hand wheel. The bobbin thread should come up.
3. Give your machine a try with a slow speed.

Why does the needle keeps getting stuck in the bobbin


Sounds like you've got a thread jam going on. Take the bobbin and bobbin case out, take the needle plate (=throat plate) off the machine, and clean all the lint and bits of thread and other gunge out of there. Reassemble. Rethread with the presser foot up. Fetch up the bobbin thread and pull bobbin and top thread ends under and behind the presser foot. Then start each seam like this:
1. Fabric under the presser foot; lower needle with handwheel or needle up/down key into the beginning of the seam.
2. Drop the presser foot.
3. Hold the ends of the bobbin and top thread behind the presser foot while you take the first 2-3 stitches
4. Drop the thread ends and sew normally.

Singer Prelude 8280 Sewing Machine stuck


Is the knob on the side, where you loosen the needle to rewind the bobbin, tightened? Also, there may be some threads in the bobbin case messing things up. Unplug the machine if you are checking the bobbin case.

I have problems with not be able to pick up the thread from the bobbin to start sewing


Make sure the needle is not bent and is installed with the flat side of the needle shaft to the back of the machine.

Thread the machine with the presser foot up, with the thread going into the needle from the front ,

Check the manual to be sure you have the bobbin inserted correctly into the bobbin case and the thread is feeding in the proper direction and through the guides on the bobbin case.

Hold onto the end of the top thread at the needle and hand walk the needle down and back up. This should bring the bobbin thread up. Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Place a folded scrap of fabric under the presser foot, lower the presser foot and hand walk the needle down into the fabric and then use the power pedal to start sewing.

Help, my mom is out of town.. I sew two or three stitches and the machine stops. It sounds like it is stuck. I have taken out the bobbin and it doesn't look like anything is stuck?


Get out the manual and start with maintenance so you can be sure the bobbin area is clean.

Now start at the beginning of the manual.

Read and apply as you wind the bobbin and place it into the bobbin case.

Thread the machine - again - read and apply.

Pictures and graphics are very helpful but don't always highlight some of the important steps.

CAN"T FIND THE MANUAL -

Remove the bobbin-case and clean away any thread the may have tangled there.


Make sure the thread is tight and even on the bobbin,

If this is a vertial bobbin/metal bobbin case, the thread winds from the bobbin clockwise and then through the opening on the side of the bobbin case and under the guide just above the opening.

Lift the needle to it's highest position and then lift the lever on the bobbin-case and hold it open as you insert the bobbin-case into the shuttle.

If this is a drop-in, horizontal bobbin, the graphic on the plastic lid covering the bobbin will indicate which way the thread feeds from the bobbin and through the guides.

Replace the needle, with the flat side of the shank facing the back of the machine.

Lift the presser foot and re-thread the machine. IMPORTANT - always have the presser foot up when threading.

Hold onto the thread end, lower and raise the needle to pull up the bobbin thread, Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Place a double layer of fabric under the presser foot. Hold onto the thread ends and lower the needle into the fabric for the first stitch.

Press on the power pedal.

Needle's thread gets tangled in bobbin


First, open the needle plate and make sure the bobbin area is clean and free of lint and thread.

Check the needle to make sure it is not bent and is properly inserted into the holder - usually with the flat side facing to the back of the machine.

Refer to your manual for bobbin insertion to be sure the thread is feeding from the bobbin in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up. This opens the tension control and allows the thread to properly enter.

When the foot is down, the tension control closes to the sewing setting and if the thread is not in place, there is no tension on the thread and it gets loopy.

After threading, lower and raise the needle while holding onto the thread tail. This will pull the bobbin thread up through the needle plate. Take hold of both threads and take them under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Hand walk the first stitch when sewing and this should keep the top and bottom thread from tangling.

When stopping to change the position of the fabric (turning a corner, sewing a curved seam for example), do so with the needle down into the fabric. This not only anchors the fabric so it does not slip, but prevents mis-stitching.

If you are doing everything according to the manual and are still having a problem, the machine may need to be professionally serviced.

I need to know how to thread a bobbin?


TRY THIS, itma not be your model, but should help Title:
How do I wind the bobbin? windingbobbin_02.jpg
ac093.jpg Pre-tension disk ac094.jpg Bobbin winder shaft ac095.jpg Bobbin

1. Pull up the spool pin as far as possible, and then put a spool of thread on this pin. windingbobbin_a0991.jpg
2. Pass the thread around the pre-tension disk. Make sure that the thread passes under the pre- tension disk.
windingbobbin_a0992.jpg ac098.jpg Pre-tension disk c_b4.jpg Pulling it in as far as possible

Caution If the spool of thread is not in the right place, the thread may tangle on the spool pin.

3. Pass the end of the thread through the hole on the bobbin from the inside of the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0993.jpg
4. Put the bobbin onto the bobbin winder shaft and slide the bobbin winder shaft to the right. windingbobbin_a0994.jpg
5. Turn the bobbin clockwise, by hand, until the spring on the shaft slides into the groove of the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0995.jpg ac099.jpg Spring on the shaft ac0991.jpg Groove of the bobbin

6. Turn on the sewing machine. windingbobbin_a0996.jpg
7. While holding the end of the thread, gently press the foot controller or press start/ stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button) to wind the thread around the bobbin a few times. Then stop the machine. windingbobbin_a0997.jpg
Note
  • If the sewing machine is to be operated using the foot controller, connect the foot controller before turning on the machine.
  • When the foot controller is plugged in, the start/stop button cannot be used to start sewing (only for models equipped with the start/stop button).

8. Trim the excess thread above the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0998.jpg
Caution Make sure you follow the instructions carefully.
If you do not cut the thread completely, and the bobbin is wound, when the thread runs low it may tangle around the bobbin and cause the needle to break.

9. Slide the sewing speed controller to the right (to set the speed to fast).
(For models equipped with the sewing speed controller.) windingbobbin_a0999.jpg ac0992.jpg Sewing speed controller
10. Press the foot controller or press start/stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button) to start. windingbobbin_a18.jpg
11. When the bobbin seems full and begins spinning slowly, take your foot off the foot controller or press start/stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button). windingbobbin_a19.jpg
12. Cut the thread, slide the bobbin winder shaft to the left and remove the bobbin. windingbobbin_a191.jpg
13. Slide the sewing speed controller back to its original position (for models equipped with the sewing speed controller). windingbobbin_a192.jpg


Caution Not winding the bobbin properly may cause the thread tension to loosen, and may break the needle.

Note
  • When the sewing machine is started or the handwheel is turned after winding the thread around the bobbin, the machine will make a clicking sound; this is not a malfunction.
  • The needle bar does not move when you slide the bobbin winding shaft to the right.
