SOURCE: Machine not sewing

Make sure you have threaded the machine from right to left, it sounds like the needle thread is trapped under the lower looper thread and cannot form a stitch.........start the threading over from scratch like this:

  1. Lower Looper
  2. Upper Looper
  3. Left Needle
  4. Right Needle
Is there a diagram for how to thread on the inside of the door ?

Follow that slowly and carefully to make sure you have not missed any thread guides on the way, as each one needs to be followed through to ensure correct tension and thread progression.

If you are certain that all threaded correctly, did you have a fabric jam and pulled it loose ? If so, the timing may well be affected.

Post an update and we'll get this right.

I would suggest that you check the needles again, make sure they are both fully up into the needle housing. Also they should be at different heights in order to form the stitch sequence.

It is important that you thread the loopers first in the sequence shown in your manual, then the needles. So you may need to recheck the threading again and make sure the threads are in all the eyes correctly, especially the lower looper. Also some overlockers, have a sliding eye on the lower looper for ease of threading, if yours does, make sure it has been slid back to normal operating position.

When you have checked the threading up, take all four threads under the raised pressure foot and make sure that the upper looper thread and lower looper threads are not crossing over each other. Lower the pressure foot and try to chain off again.
I hope this helps you to resolve the issue.

I have a euro pro shark sewing machine. I just changed the thread for another project and cannot get the needle to pick up the bobbin thread. Any ideas?


Try installing a brand new needle. Bent/damaged needles will sometimes not pick up the bobbin thread.

Make sure the machine is threaded correctly. Check the bobbin--ie, it is turning the correct direction in the bobbin case and is threaded properly through the bobbin tension.

You might also try pulling the bobbin thread up to the top before beginning to stitch.

Euro-Pro sewing machine model9130H needle moves sideways and thread clogs up when starting to sew


Be sure to install a brand new needle.

If the needle bar is moving to the side when set on a straight-stitch, there is probably something loose or bent in the machine. Would recommend having it checked by a technician. Could also be the cause of the thread clumping or could be something else going on.

My sewing machine thread keep breaking i dont know if the needle is in right are if it is thread it is a euro pro denim machine


Usually there is a flat spot on the part of the needle that makes it so you can only install it the correct way. Try changing the thread. If it keeps breaking you will need to adjust the threads tension control. If it is too tight your machine won't be able to pull the correct amount of "slack" it needs to make a good stitch. You might only need to turn the adjustment a small amount to make a big difference. The thread should come off the spool and go through an arm that moves up and down. Then the thread loops around the tension adjustment. It will most likely be a knob or dial with numbers on its face. I hope this helps.

The needle is threaded top and bottom but when I run the machine to sew the thread isn't sewing on to the fabric..I'm not sure but I think the thread around the check spring holder is midway or rather not...


Recheck the threading on the top side. When you pull the thread at the needle is there tension on it? If there is no resistance than there's no tension. If it breaks it is either not threaded correctly or the tension is way too tight.

If that is correct and the the thread on the bottom has a little bit of tension when you pull on it, it should stitch --- However not stitching at all can be from having the wrong needle, wrong brand, type, or in incorrectly. Sometimes even the wrong size can prevent stitching, like when youre sewing through heavy/thick material and using too small a needle.

Check out those three things and then see if it won't sew correctly for you.

When sewing, thread knots under fabric sometimes. Other times the stitching is missing.


Hello:

When you have stitch problems try to remember TNT or TTN.

1. Raise your pressure foot and re-thread your top thread. (Thread)
2. Replace your needle or at least check it for being bent. (Needle)
3. Adjust your top tension. (Tension) Get it? TNT.

4. Make sure your bobbin is in correctly. If it is upside down or had the thread unspooling off the correct side.
5. Make sure your needle and your thread are appropriate for your fabric application.

Good luck.

CONSEW 206RB5 TOP THREAD NOT FORMING STITCHES AND BREAKING


you have your thread tension too tight that's why it is pulling the bottom stitch all the way through it looks good from the bottom but not good on top. Its pulled the stitch all the way through the material.
I had my own upholstery shop 18 yrs and tension gets you every time.Just loosen the top tension.

Bobbin thread/feed dog eating fabric


This is a very common problem with really lightweight fabric and can often be cured (if doing straight stitching) by using a straight stitch needle plate and foot. The wider needle plate and foot openings on newer machines give the machine/thread a wider area to pull the fabric into the machine. By using a straight stitch plate/foot you remove the wide opening, eliminating the majority of the problem.

Also - try using a specially coated needle (Teflon or other non-stick finish). The thread feeds more smoothly through the needle and the needle more smoothly through the fabric, causing less drag into the needle plate opening.

Hope this helps. Don't hesitate to respond to this if you have further specific questions. We're always happy to help

Happy stitching,

If it was sewing correctly BEFORE the needle break...why did the needle break in the first place?...and what fixes did you make?
If it sewed properly...what changed?

Cut your upper thread close to the spool...make sure the presser foot is raised and pull the cut off thread section through/out of the machine from the needle area (sewing direction...do not pull the thread backwards!)

Clean out the bobbin area...remove any traces of lint or pieces of thread...look for any broken off needle pieces... brush the bobbin area out....then add a drop of sewing machine oil (but only if your manual says to oil that area).

Remove the needle plate to expose the feed dogs...brush/clean out that area too and add a drop of sewing machine oil...then secure the needle plate back on.
Replace the needle...do it again...yup...some needles arrive bad from the factory. Make sure the needle is inserted and positioned properly. Then thread the machine WITH the presser foot in raised position. (The thread needs to get seated into the upper tensions.)
..with the.presser foot down...thread the new needle.
Oh...and use the correct needle for the thread. (a universal 80/12 is standard).
Thread can cause issues too. Try a different bobbin, or maybe a different spool of thread to see if that makes a difference.
