I have just been given a singer melodie 40.When I start to sew, material is stopped by bobbin? Bobbin is breaking off bits of thread underneath?


Try a brand new needle. Make sure the thread is suitable to the needle and fabric you are using. AVOID old or bargain bin threads. Spend an extra dollar or two for good thread.
All About Needles

Check that there are no loose threads stuck in the upper thread path, ie the tension disk.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the upper thread. Verify that the thread path is correct. Mis-threading will invariably cause broken thread.

Clean out the bobbin area & feed dogs of any lint and loose threads. Check that the bobbin has been installed & threaded correctly and turning the right direction in the bobbin case.

Manually rotate the handwheel one turn until the upper thread grabs the the bobbin thread. Pull it the rest of the way to the top. When beginning to stitch, start slowly and gently hold both thread tails in your left hand until it has made a couple of stitches.

How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

If you have a manual, make sure you follow the maintenance tips. If the machine needs oiling, be sure to follow the instructions using only fresh good quality sewing machine oil. Most machines that have been given as gifts from a sewist's stash may not have been maintained regularly.

If it still does not stitch properly, take it for service. It could have a timing issue, ie the needle arrives at the bobbin at the wrong time to intercept the bobbin thread.

My sisters singers brand new Athena sewing machine she just started jusing about 5 or 6 times just stopped picking up the bobbin thread and sewing thread in the material. It is just leaving holes in


Needs a new needle right way around, most likely. And check the threading on both bobbin and top of the machine. It makes a big difference which way the bobbin turns in the bobbin case.

How do you adjust the bobbin


Hello

Set the tension on the sewing machine for the weight of the material you want to sew. The tension setting shows in the stitch on the material. Use the chart on the machine that matches types of stitches with suggested material tensions. An example of this is, the stitch to sew jean material is different than the stitch to sew silk.

Take the bobbin and wind the thread around it. Make sure the bobbin is empty and don't fill it too full of thread. A bobbin filled too full won't stay tightly spun.

Thread the string evenly on the bobbin. Move the thread back and forth evenly and in layers that are level. Many Singer sewing machines have a bobbin winder on the top of the sewing machine, and the consistency of how it threads can save you frustration later.

Find the hole on the bobbin that is located near the inside spindle of the bobbin. Take the thread sitting on the sewing machines spool and insert the thread in the hole from inside the bobbin to the outside. Set the threaded bobbin on the spool designated for spinning on the top of the sewing machine for some Singers.

Turn the side drive wheel slowly until the threaded bobbin has a layer or two of thread on it. Push down on the drive peddle and fill the bobbin, but don't thread it to the very edge. If the bobbin is too full the thread will release erratically. Cut the thread from the spool.

Drop the bobbin into the bobbin case under the area where the needle sews the material. Close the case and turn by hand the side wheel drive until the bobbin threads into the sewing machine. You can tell when the bobbin is threaded by the tiny piece of thread that juts out of the bobbin case where the needle goes up and down.

Grab the thread with your fingers and pull it out approximately 4 inches. Your bobbin is now spun and threaded.

My singer 4423 is having an issue. the thread from the bobbin is not looping with the thread by the needle. If I feed some material through the needle goes up and down like it is suppossed to but there is...


Hello

Have you replaced the needle? Sometimes something that simple will solve the problem.

If you have changed the needle and rethreaded the machine, then take apart your bobbin and make certain there are no small pieces of thread or lint in it.

Check your tension. Do you have an automatic thread cutter? I had the same problem and it was because my automatic thread cutter was cutting the thread too short. Some how the cutter had gotten bent...I could not tell it, but it was.

To solve the problem i put the blade of a flat head screw driver under the cutter and GENTLY bent it back down. Fixed the problem. Works perfectly.

some machines can get "out of time"...the needle and the bobbin thread don't arrive at the right place at the same time.In this case you need to take your machine to a repair shop for re-timing

Bobbin/threading


Could be acouple of things. The tension on the thread or the bobbin. The needle not in all the way. Wrong type of needle for the thickness of the material. My problem was always trying to pull or push the fabric with the needle in the material - cause a bend, then the tip snags the side of the bobbin hole. Snap it's gone.

As your friend suggested, check the threading of the bobbin, the click she/he might be talking about it the first rotation of the bobbin, then being snagged by the needle thread. Good luck!

Bobbin thread coming up through top of design


My 270D does this when I'm about to run out of bobbin. If you just replaced it I'd guess you either wound it wrong or are using the wrong type of bobbin spool. It could be too loosely or too tightly wound.

My needle keeps breaking while I'm trying to machine quilt. It also at times will collect the thread on the other side of the quilt which makes me think something is wrong with the bobbin.


Q1.(A) Without realising, you could be 'helping' the material feed.
Q2. (A) Is the thread collecting at the start or during sewing?,,if at the start, make sure threads are clear and hold them out the back of work gently till a few stictches are made.
If during sewing, it could be tension isn't adjusted correctly, experiment.
