Question about Sewing Machines
CHANGE THE NEEDLE. TAKE OUT ALL OF THE BOBBIN CASING. CLEAN IT AND PUT ONE DROP OF OIL ON THE RACE (THE INDENT AREA THAT EVERYTHING RIDES ON AND CAN'T BE REMOVED). LOOK FOR A BROKEN NEEDLE PART AND THREAD AND ANYTHING THAT SHOULDN'T BE THERE. PUT EVERYTHING BACK. TURN THE HAND WHEEL TOWARDS YOU AND OBSERVE IF THERE IS ANYTHING TOUCHING THE NEEDLE. IF THERE IS THEN THAT WILL NEED TO BE FIXED.

I am a veteran seamstress and I may be able to help you. it sounds as though you just have the wrong needle in the machine or the needle is in backwards.. Machine needles are different lengths according to what machine it is. The needle could also be dull on the point. Try this and see if it helps. Also your local sew shop can help you no charge if you just go in and talk with them. The techs enjoy helping for the most part I have discovered.

You can download a manual for $10 at www.sewingmanuals.com and it should help you. A couple of suggestions though, is your needle inserted correctly? Flat side facing the rear of the machine, fresh needle? Threaded correctly on top and bobbin area? Is your thread good not too old and the same type in bobbin and top? Did you leave a long enough tail in the bobbin thread? 3-4 inches which you hold with your left hand. Is the thread in the bobbin unwinding the right way? Are you turning the handwheel towards you, not away from you at least two revolutions or until you see the thread loop? Try these suggestions, and I am sure one will work unless your timing is off and it needs professional service.
