Turn off the machine and remove the needle.

Lift the presser foot and remove the inner hoop and then the rest of the hoop.

Move the fabric to one side and cut the threads with a seam ripper.

Open the needle plate.

Remove the bobbin and bobbin case.

Clean away any thread or lint in this area.

You should repeat the last three steps routinely as lint and thread snips can accumulate in these area and cause mis-stitching.

Replace the bobbin case, bobbin and needle plate.

Use a new needle.

My top tread going in the small hole to bobbin keep on breaking.it embroider normal for short periods and the break.


First, install a brand new needle. Verify that it is the correct needle and needle eye size for the thread and fabric you are sewing. (Change needles frequently. Needles are the most inexpensive sewing accessory and most the most common repair for a malfunctioning sewing machine.)

What you are experiencing sounds like the thread is shredding at the needle eye and eventually breaking. Sometimes, a top stitch needle will work better because the groove in the back of the needle shields the thread better as the needle pierces the fabric multiple times. A piece of thread can pierce the fabric over a dozen times before it forms a stitch, so friction and rough fabric will take its toll.

All About Needles

Use only good quality threads--AVOID old thread and bargain bin threads. They are cheap and there is a reason why they are--because what they make up for in price is paid in frustration!!!! Polyester thread used to be the bane of sewing machines, but polyester thread has greatly improved and is now a favorite for experienced sewists. It is thin and strong. Threads that are fuzzy (cotton-wrapped polyester of old Coats & Clark variety) threads are not the best for your machine or project. Check out better quality threads, ie Gutermann, Superior, Sulky, Aurfil, Isacord, and multiple other brands. Make sure you are buying the correct type of thread for your project--don't use embroidery thread to sew your garment unless you want the seams to pop open while you're wearing it.

Remove the thread from your machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and then rethread from the beginning. The raised presser foot releases the tension disk so the thread will seat properly.

Check that the upper tension is set somewhere around the midway point. This is a factory standard although most machines may require some adjustments. Test the stitch on your fabric. The tension is ideal when both upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric. If the bobbin thread shows on top of the fabric, the upper tension is too tight. If the upper thread shows on the underside of the fabric, the upper tension is too loose.

If the thread is still shredding, then there's a likelihood there is a burr or nick somewhere on the needleplate or in the bobbin/hook area. If you wrap your index finger with fine fabric (like old hosiery) and rub you finger around, you may find the burr. If it is small, you can lightly smooth it with a fine emery board. If it is a large one, you may need to replace the part.

Sound s like top tension too high, bobbin tension too loose, or a needle issue - dull or incorrect one for the fabric.
Change the needle, check tensions.
Have you stabilised the fabric?

Why are no embroidery stitches showing up, the needle moves in and out of the fabric but no stitches stay


here are some suggestions, if the suggestions don't help then the
machine needs to be checked to see if there is a adjustment or
timing problem
1. try changing the needle
2. try rethreading the machine top and bobbin
3. make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin
case

Thread is clumping underneath


Unfortunately, the machine's timing may have been adversely affected during the jam and removal of the fabric. Here's something that may resolve the issue if it is not timing-related:

Install a brand new needle.
Remove all the thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread!
Rethread from the beginning and verify the thread path is correct.
If you have a smoothly-wound bobbin, try that. (A bobbin that you describe will contribute to sewing issues.)
Install and thread the bobbin--confirm the bobbin is spinning the right direction in the bobbin case.
Re-test your machine.

If you are having issues with the bobbin not winding smoothly, there are standalone bobbin winders for about $30 on the market (local JoAnn's or on the internet) called Sidewinder. Confirm that your machine bobbins will work (there are a few machines that won't, I think Singer). This is a very good accessory to have since you can wind bobbins without having to unthread the machine and also saves wear & tear on your machine.

Machine jammed and pulled bobbin up out of it's case


since the machine jamed, I would suggest changing the needle incase it got bent or damaged
the reason for the birds nest under the fabric, the thread came off the thread take up lever, if it does it again you can try a piece of tape over it so the thread won't come off of the thread take up lever again
I use to have trouble with mine doing that.

I have the futura ce-100. When embroidering it


This annoys the heck out of me, cause it happens a lot more than it should. There can be some valid reasons as to why it happens, though.

Your top thread could be broken or about to break; your bobbin thread could be broken, about to break or empty/about to become empty and is loose around the bobbin; you could have a birds' nest (a mass of thread just under the fabric/presser foot and/or within the feed dog and bobbin) forming and causing a jam; or it could be your Futura having a little bit of a hissy fit. Obviously, if you've checked for broken thread you need to move on. Check for a birds' nest by removing the fabric and clip your threads. If you find one, clear it, rethread your bobbin and begin sewing again. If there's no birds' nest, then place the fabric back in and try sewing/embroidering again. If the machine acts up again, I recommend removing the fabric/hoop, rethreading your top and bobbin threads, replacing fabric/hoop and resuming where you left off. If the machine still gives you trouble, try hitting the start button for a couple of times and seeing if the problem doesn't simply resolve itself. When you're embroidering areas that have a few small, short stitches only, the machine seems to act up a little and then behaves fine once you bypass the area. Be sure to take all of the other steps first, though, because a birds' nest will RUIN a beautiful seam or embroidery.

Sir I am owning a Janome Memory Craft 10001 but recently it's not working properly in ordinary sewing mode the top side of the fabric the stitch looks okay but underneath it is loose and while embroidering...


Usually If the underneath is loose it is the top tension that is the problem. If it is the top stitching that is loose it is the bottom tension. Hope this helps.

Bobbin thread tangling up


are you doing embroidery? if so turn off jump stitch cutting if possible. is the machine threaded correctly (pull needle thread out of machine and thread again with presser foot raised.

check for foreign matter in needle tension assembly. ensure there is sufficient needle thread tension.

the thread you see caught up underneath the fabric will be needle thread and indicates insufficient needle thread tension or something preventing the needle thread from being pulled up into the fabric (maybe a damaged bobbin case, or bobbin case position finger, or damaged needle plate hole).

goodluck,
scott

Singer ce350 bobbin thread on top


Be sure when you are threading the top thread that you ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot. This releases the tension disk and allows the thread to seat properly.

Have you gone back and re-tested on your test fabric? Does it work okay on the test fabric? If so, then there's a suspicion that it has something to do with the fabric, needle & thread of your project. Is your project fabric very dense, heavy... Are you using a stabilizer? A hoop--is it taut, not stretched? Make sure the fabric is not trampolining. Could be an incompatibility. The needle & thread may be having difficulty piercing the fabric. Try a different weight needle, perhaps a microtex or embroidery needle.
