Check your bobbin tension and installation. The bobbin is the most likely problem.

Thread my sewing macine


There is a site that has a manual for this machine for sale. Site is here : http://sewingonline.co.uk/jones-brother-manuals-2.html

Threading most machines is not hard, if you have a pic of the front of the machine, fairly close up, I could probably tell you how to thread it. But having the manual is always a good thing.

try changing the needle
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or loose thread

Upper thread breaks
needle may be in backwards
Raise the needle bar to the highest point then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
upper tension may be to tight

Lower thread breaks
bent bobbin--replace
thread catching on the bobbin spring or latch on bobbin case check to see that the bobbin is inserted completely & correctly & that you are using the right kind of bobbin .

Thread is bunching up and pulling fabric into feed dogs. also breaking top thread. i have cleaned and oiled,adjusted stitch length,changed needle, re-threaded, and adjusted tension. i should note i am a...


If the thread bunches up on the bottom sometimes it is the bobbin tension. You can remove the bobbin housing and may notice a screw. This screw "tensions" the tab where the thread goes through, creating tension on the thread. Another thing to check if the machine is on a "loose/stretch" stitch setting, this will allow the elastic to freely expand and contract. You may need to also adjust the "speed" of the feed teeth, to compensate for the slack. Often there is "stray thread" in or around the bobbin, which can cause problems, One of these may be the solution, Im being general in my information.

Need to know how to set the tension to sew hems on


Re-thread the machine and make sure that the needle is in properly. The tension would not cause the thread to break.



If it is not working, what is the machine doing? Try re-threading the machine again, check the needle to make sure that it is in correctly. There are no set numbers for tension- it is a feel, push, pull. If you could e-mail me back with a better description of what the machine is doing or not doing,

JONES SEWING MACHINE PROBLEMS


We have a very old Jones Sewing Machine (1960's) we are having trouble with the thread at the moment. When we sew the thread gathers up underneath the material that we are trying to sew. Any suggestions to overcome this problem?
