Adjust the stitch length so that it isn't too tight.

Make sure that you are using the buttonhole foot. It has a groove in the sole to allow the foot to pass over the bulk of thread.

If you still have problems, the reverse cycle balance (stretch balance) may need adjusting by a technician.

This is a sewing machine we don't have in the US, so I'm guessing here, but I think the stitch pattern is unbalanced. On some machines, there's a dial to "balance the patterns", which you can turn to restore symmetry to something like a buttonhole. Often you need to automatically stitch out a pattern in order to reset the balance knob.
If your machine doesn't have such a knob, it's time to take it in for a lookover.

Can't turn wheel


Check the area that contains the bobbin. There might be something loose in there. While you\'re in there, clean an oil this area. Also, open the end cover (left side of machine) and lubricate the swivel arm top and bottom and wait overnight for oil penetration; you can also use a hair blow dryer to speed this up. For oiling diagram, see:

Singer 4423 stuck on backstitch!


Is sewing machine set for buttonhole making? Sounds like it got "confused" in the process of a buttonhole revolution making a reverse stitch, and so you need to change adjustment settings top left, bottom right, remove extension table and turn feed dogs switch back left of machine to UP position.
Did this help?

I have a 1970's? singer and the top stitch is ok but the bottom stitch is very loose then binds up I have tried putting another bobbin in but nothing seems to work. Thank you


Check the threading and tension on the top thread. It is the one that affects the stitch on the bottom. It may be hung up somewhere if it's not threaded correctly or the tension might be too tight. Also double check the size of your needle and make sure it is correct for the type of fabric. Most likely it is the tension. Double check the tension by sewing a wide zig zag stitch and examining the top and under side to see if they look identical and not puckered or too loose.

How do I use the button hole foot on the Bernina 807 minimatic?


There isn't an automatic button hole on this machine. You can do it manually. Thread the bobbin thread as usual, but put it through the little hole on the hook in the bobbin case. Set the stitch length between 0 and 1, like a nice satin stich. Set the needle position to the far left and the stitch width to 2. Sew down the left side. Center the needle, set the width to 4 and lower the feed dogs, stitch about 6 stitches across the bottom. Then reverse the direction, set the needle to the right, stitch width to 2 and go back up the right side. Lower the feed dogs again, set a wide stitch and finish the top.

Another good option is to buy a universal presser foot shank from Bernina and then attach an old cam type buttonhole attachment from Singer. They make beautiful buttonholes and you can even do a keyhole button hole.

My Huskylock 936 - needle won't go down. The motor seems to be binding up.


Check your threading, both top and bottom, sounds like you have threaded wrong.

My serger comes to an abrupt halt.


Sounds like something is binding. Don't really recommend removing the covers but you could remove the bottom base plate and see if you can see something binding. Otherwise, take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
Good luck.

Needle Sticks - Huskystar E10


When it feels like the needle is jammed, open the bobbin cover and release the two black retaining levers, one on either side of the bobbin case. The hook cover that is visible will be released. If the machine turns by hand smoothly, you may have a piece of the broken needle, or just a piece of thread stuck behind the hook or hook cover causing the bind. This problem will sometime make you swear that the needle is stuck in something because it will usually bind while the needle is down in the fabric.
