How to use a twin needle on my SR2000 toyota sewing machine

First, verify that your machine can use a twin needle. Most machines take will use a twin needle will have separate thread guides and duel thread spool pins.

To thread it, thread one thread all the way through one of the needles and then thread the second thread through to the second needle. This will help keep the threads from twisting.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top.
Be sure that your top thread follows the correct thread path.
Set the top tension to the midway point.
Re-test your machine.

Tension is a tug-of-war between the top and bobbin threads. Correct tension is when both threads meet in the middle of the fabric. If the bobbin thread is laying on the underside of the fabric, the top tension needs to be increased so it will pull the bobbin thread up into the fabric. If the top thread is pulling the bobbin thread up to the top of the fabric, then the top tension needs to be loosened.

FWIW, thread tension is not static. Tension will need to be adjusted probably every time you start a new project. Test it on a piece of scrap fabric from the project and adjust it BEFORE beginning the project. Remember to change the needle often--probably every time a new project is started or every 8 hours of sewing time. Be sure to use the correct type and size needle based on the fabric & thread you are sewing. Also, AVOID old or bargain bin thread!

Hi the pressure foot in my toyota RS2000 does not move when i try to sew. What could be the problem

check the feed dogs that are under the needle plate to see if there up or down,, if they are up you can feel them when you slide your finger over them,, only if there up can the machine sew,

the pressure foot holds the fabric against the feed dogs & the feed dogs move the fabric

How do i install a bobbin in a toyota rs2000 please

Your machine has a removable bobbin case and vertical rotary hook (front loading) so it is very alike to many other machines in that you insert the bobbin into the bobbin case in a clockwise direction, pull the thread into the tension spring on the case, then place the case into the front of the rotary hook while pulling out the little latch on the case, then release it to secure into the rotary hook. The latch usually goes into the "12" position on the rotary hook, there should be a little indentation for it.

If you go to this page you can download Toyota RS2000 manual and full instructions and drawings are there about page 8.

If you go to, there is lots of helpful sewing machine pages too, general threading up, trouble shooting and getting the right needle for the job. How you wind the bobbin is important and you need to put it into the bobbin case the right direction so the thread comes off the bobbin then reverses direction through the tension spring.

Great video on You tube too which should help you

visually its so much easier than trying to describe the steps. But once you've mastered a bobbin case and bobbin system, they are all very similar between makes and models.

I have a Toyota RS2000 the stitch selection knob cracked I have ordered a new one which I have received but the knob will not tighten onto the switch selection shaft because metal strip is missing inside...

I have the same problem. I found the little metal piece down inside the machine. Shake the machine and see if you hear a little rattle. It might be that little metal piece. Bad design on that selector knob, for sure.
