If the bobbin winder is not the problem (as Jimmie suggested), you might want to take it back to where you purchased it. May be defective.

I believe that your bobbin winder is on. It needs to be pushed to the left.

The error message relates to the motor sensing that it is working unusually hard.........the extra strain will have a physical cause, generally in the hook and bobbin region.......something blocking or slowing things down, so....... 
Remove needleplate and bobbin case. 
You will probably find an accumulation of lint in and around this area, also possibly in the feeddog channels. 
Use a small brush and vacuum with crevice tool to remove the lint and wipe the hookrace with a tissue moistened with methylated (denatured) spirit to remove any dirt deposits. 
Also check that the bobbin case is not damaged on the top surface by needle strikes or on the underside rim by the hook gouging as it spins. 
If damage is present but mild, you can use very fine emery paper to smooth surface, if more severe, replace the bobbin case. Don't forget to change needles regularly too.

The bobbin case is not supposed to move. It should only have a little bit of wiggle room so there is enough clearence for the thread.

SOURCE: Just purchased the Singer Quantum Stylist 9960,

When you pull the needle threader down it seems like it is pulled all the way down but it isn't. Pull it a little harder and it will turn and go down all the way to match up with the needle eye. I was a little scared to apply the extra "force", thinking I could break my new machine. Just be easy with it and it will work just like the manual says.
Good luck....

SOURCE: singer 2263 needle hitting something in bobbin area (loud thunk) and needle moves

try taking the bobbin out and putting it back in the bobbin
case if it's a top loading bobbin
if it's a side or front loading bobbin make sure the bobbin case is
inserted correctly
if the bobbin and bobbin case are inserted correctly then
it sounds like the sewing machine could have a timing
problem and needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop

Bernina 180 needle bar won't move up and down


This could be the needle bar clutch. Turn off machine. Unplug machine. Remove needle. Turn hand wheel in normal rotation 1/4 turn. Gently move needle bar up and down by hand you should feel a click and the needle bar will not move up and down easily now. Restart machine and test. If it works all is good. This is a result of the machine requiring professional attention. If you use basting stitches it will likely unclutch again.

Loosen your needle. Turn your handle towards you. You may have to turn a little hard. Now, throw that needle away.Take your fabric away and check the area where your bobbin goes and clean it out of fabric and thread. Now load your bobbin again and load a new needle. Pull your thread up from the bottom by turning the handle towards you while holding the needle thread with the foot down. Now look and place something under the foot and slide it forward while still holding the needle thread. The bobbin thread should come up. Let me tell you this though. Adjust the bobbin thread before you start. This is done by placing the thread in the carrier (usually unwinding counterclockwise) and place the thread under the tension spring. Hang this from your finger and bob it up and down lightly. It should fall about one inch. If it doesn't then loosen. If it falls too far then tighten.

My Designer 1 sewing machine runs great, but it sound terrible. It always sounds like rattling from the bobbin area. What can be done? I take it for cleans and mention this, but nothing changes.


When the needle moves down, is it striking the edge of the needle plate? If so, adjustment is needed. Take the various parts of the bobbin assembly out of the machine and use the handwheel to move the needle in the downward direction (turn the handwheel counterclockwise). Is the needle striking the "hook" in its downward most position? If so, this is most likely what's making the noise and it needs adjustment.

My janome 11000 memorycraft's needle threader has jammed in the down position and cannot be moved


Thanks to floraq803, we have our 11000 working again. The needle threader was stuck in the down position. We turned off the machine, and turned the wheel (which controls where the needle is) until the needle threader bar was straight (approximately 1/2 way between the needle being all the way down and all the way up). Turned on the machine and the threader came back up again. Now back to sewing.

Fixing a new needle on a sewing machine


Turn the hand-wheel counterclockwise until the needle is at the highest point. Lower the guide or presser foot. This will give the maximum room possible for working with the needle.
Turn the needle clamp screw counterclockwise until the needle comes loose. This screw is located on the side of the small
box, known as the needle clamp, that holds the needle in place.
Remove the old needle by pulling it straight down and then angling it outward. Place a new needle into the holding slot or needle clamp.
Tighten the new needle into place by turning the clamp screw clockwise until tight. Do not over-tighten the needle.


Here's a tip
Use a needle that is appropriate for the type of fabric you are sewing. Using the wrong needle may result in breakage and increase the number of needles to be changed
Over-tightening a needle can cause it to be crooked and break. Turn the clamp screw only until the needle feels stiff in place.

Needle Keeps Moving While Sewing and Bobbin Wont Thread


Hi Nikki,

The problem seems to be of the needles alignment. If you are using a half bobbin type (D type) needle, makes sure you have used the proper number & size and also fastened it well so that the flat side is firmly fixed/clasping the inner side of the needle hold. That black thing which I feel is the fly-nut that helps you tighten/clamp the needle to its hold. Then after having done that, slowly turn the wheel manually to see whether the needle is going in thru the hole in a straight line and if you can, look underneath to se if the knotter ring (the one that looks like having fangs) comes close as the neele advances inward. All these movements HAVE TO BE syncronised. Only then you will be able to stitch the fines of fabrics speedily. Also make sure oyu are not tugging on the front end of the fabric too hard as this may cause the needle to go in a diagonal manner thus causing it to snap. Take care as to NOT to be too close to the needle while at high speeds. The snapping pieces can fly right into your eyes/nose causing serious injury.

Hope that does it Nikki...
