Why Doesn't my sewing machine want to pick up the bobbin thread correctly?


if the bobbin case isn't turning properly are you sure you it in right.
Hold the lever on it out, slide the case on the spindle all the way and then release the lever. Also try a different length needle, it may be to long to allow a uniform stitch

How to threading machine


the typical track for the top thread will go from the top thread hold to the metal unit towards the top left of the machine slightly to the right and down to loop under a thread holder. Then up and through the moving metal arm just left of the last path of the thread and then down again towards the needle. It will be placed behind an metal stationary guard located on the needle holder and then just through the needle from the front to back.
I know that sounds confusing so here is a helpful video that also shows you how to take care of the bottom bobbin. I hope this helps!!

The macine said it was an E6 error thread jam which I completely cleaned the bobbin area (not much there anyway) but I still cannot get it to not jam the thread on the botom. I have changed needles also.


Hello

This code tells you that the motor locked up because the thread is tangled. Untangle the thread, make sure the machine is threaded properly and that the proper tension is set before continuing.

It could be that the bobbin is being put in upside down check to make sure that you do not need a bobbin with a magnet on one side. also make sure there is no thread tangled inside the bobbin housing it will cause the timing of the machine to be off and cause issues with your needle picking up the bobbin and thus cause a mess inside you bobbin housing

Are you saying that you changed the needle? You cannot tell if your needle has a burr on it or not. Because if you did, you may have messed up your timing and need service because it will take special tools and know how to fix it. . Try another needle one more time (make sure that the flat side faces away from you) and different thread. Rethread with your presser foot up, then pull the top thread, it should move smoothly, now lower the presser foot and pull the thread, it should barely move. This should seat the thread in the tension discs. Also, check that you aren't using the wrong size needle for the task at hand.

Sewing on top is fine but bottom bobbin keeps sewing messy on the underside domesco sewing machine how do i fix?


It is in your top threading, it is not threaded right. Make sure that there is no tangles in your thread, no bent needle. Check your threading by, presser foot up, pull thread, it should move smoothly, put presser foot down and pull thread again, now it should hardly move. This will seat the thread in the tension discs.

Hi. It's very likely that the needle is inserted wrong. Take the needle out and make sure that the flat shank of the needle is facing away from you (to the rear of the machine).

Try this and let me know if it helps, ok?

Bobbin threads


That sounds like the needle is in back to front.

I need help in adjusting the feed dogs, they messed up when I adjusted the timing for the needle and bobbin.


When the sewing machine is properly timed, all the parts work together in a seamless flow of coordination. The needle moves from it highest point down toward the needle plate. The feed dogs reach the farthest point toward the back of the sewing machine. The feed dogs drop under the needle plate. This is just before the needle point reaches the needle plate. The needle continues to move down dragging the upper thread under the needle plate. It proceeds toward its lowest point.
The needle begins its rise back up. A loop of thread forms along the back of the needle. A special cut out on the back of the needle to accommodate this loop is called the scarf. The sewing machine hook slides behind the needle. The point of the hook slides into the thread loop and pulls the thread around the bobbin. The bobbin thread and upper thread wrap together. The needle and hook proceed through their actions under the needle plate. The feed dogs move under the needle plate from back to front.

The needle proceeds to rise again up out of the bobbin area exiting the needle plate. At the same time the feed dogs rise up out from under the needle plate. They begin to move from front to back as the needle continues to rise.
The thread from the bobbin flows through a bobbin tensioner providing resistance to the thread as it is drawn up by the upper thread knot. The upper thread is also under tension. This comes from the upper tension, thread guides, tension spring, and sewing machine take up lever.
The thread from top and bobbin grow increasingly tighter until they form a locked stitch in the middle of the fabric. This process is repeated for every stitch.
How do you adjust sewing machine timing?

The needle, hook, and feed dogs must move in harmony. If they fail to do so, the machine will not perform as expected. When the hook is just slightly out of time with the needle, you will notice skipped stitches. This may begin on only one side of the zig zag stitch or intermittently. If the timing is just a bit more out of sync, stitch formation will become impossible.
If the feed dog timing is out of sync, the fabric will not move through the machine as expected. Threads may bunch up or the fabric may just not move.
As you can see, timing is everything.

The heavy "knitting" on the backside of the fabric sounds like a tension issue due to your thread catcher or other. You may want to look at this link:

The fuse issue may very well be unrelated, just coincidental.

Untangle any mess under and around the needleplate very gingerly trimming threads as you go if necessary....remove and clear.

Undo the needle clamp and remove the remains of the needle.

Open the door for the bobbin and bobbin case and undo the clips holding the hook in place......don't force anything, just ease any tangle loose slowly.

You may want to take a photo of how it goes back together if unfamiliar, or lay the bits out sensibly, so you can replace easily later.

Inside the bobbin/hook area is the most likely region for thread jamming the motion of everything, so make sure all is clear and clean, then.......

Without replacing the bobbin or hook, test the handwheel after cleaning before re-assembly.

You may also want to check the take-up crank for thread jams........the small arm in the top cover that moves up/down to "take-up" the top thread has a cam attached to the top shaft and often tangles thread around the shaft, open the L side cover to access.......remove thread by unwinding handwheel manually ....again be patient and careful not to break threads.
