How do you correctly insert the bobbin carrier, i have been give one of these machines and think it has been inserted incorrectly as needle is hitting bobbin carrier when you turn wheel.

well you might want to try and get it out and put it correctly, it does sound like it is in wrong. You are so right it should not be hitting the bobbin carrier, getting it out and putting it in correctly is the only thing I can think of.

The top thread is not taking up the bobbin thread Why?

This may be due to incorrect threading of the top thread or incorrect winding of the bobbin thread, or the bobbin may be inserted backward. It can also be due to a damaged needle.

Try a new needle first. A brand new one if at all possible.

If a new needle won't help, remove all thread, remove the bobbin, and clean all lint and dust out from around the bobbin. Rethread carefully, making sure all thread guides are used.

Maybe also try using a new bobbin of thread. Ensure it's facing the right way when you put into the bobbin case and that you have pulled several inches of thread from the bobbin case.

Why does my cs6000i the needle hits the bobbin case put nicks in case and then thread snags in the bad area

If you are talking about the bobbin case (housing), it may be inserted incorrectly. Remove it and put it in again, or the needle isn't seated correctly. Once the bobbin case is damaged, do not use it anymore or you will continue to have problems. If you mean the bobbin, change bobbins and see if you continue to have problems, as you might have the incorrect size.

Hi, I would sew , up to 3 inches of sewing on the cloth the needle would stop and when I look underneath the fabric where I just sewed. The tread is all bunched up and tangled. The top threads looks fine...

re-thread the entire machine. Pay special attention to the take-up lever and the tension assembly.

Always have the presser foot in the UP position when threading the machine. This opens the tension disc to allow the thread to nestle inside the assembly.

Make sure the thread passes through the take up lever

Make sure you inserted the thread in every thread guide

I always recommend a sharp needle. You may not notice any slight bends, burrs or dullness in the needle which would throw off the timing and the stitch quality.

SPOOL CAP - If you have a horizontal spool pin a spool cap is very important. Its also very important the spool cap covers the end of the spool of thread but make sure its not too big or it will throw off the thread tension.

TOP TENSION DIAL - The setting should be between 3 and 5 on most machines.

The best way to know if you threaded the tension assembly correctly is to put the presser foot in the DOWN position. Now take the thread from the right of the tension assembly and pull. Is there tension on the thread or does it pull out very easily? If it pulls out easily you threaded it incorrectly. Try it again

also check under the needle plate for lint

and in the bobbin case area for lint or loose threads

My upper needle will not grasp my bobbin thread I have a computerized Sewing machine project runway edition....Model CE50000 PRW

Hi! This is almost always caused by the needle inserted incorrectly. There is a flat side on the needle shank and if this flat side isn't facing the right way, the top thread won't pick up the bobbin thread. (Bent or broken needles can also cause this, but you would have noticed a broken needle. :-) ). Check your manual to see which way the flat side of the need is supposed to go. (It seems to me that most machines have the flat side facing the rear of the machine--but please don't assume that's true for your machine.) I have machines on which the flat side faces to the lef and, faces to the right, but most of my machines (and certainly the more modern ones), the flat side faces to the rear.
Hope this helps!

DEsigner I...I had been having some issues with the touch pad. Now it does not work at all when you touch it.

Youu either need a new touch screen or it has come unplugged from the main power board inside the machine. Those touch screens cost about $210 and should only be installed by your dealer. If you have someone try to put the touch screen in and they just touch the display screen incorrectly, you'll need a new display screen too. They cost about $700.

We have a Thompson PW-301. I find the instruction manual very had to understand in some instances. I finally got it threaded, but the tension part I had trouble with. Once I figured that out, now it seems...

Here's some things for you to try.

* Re-thread your machine, it may be threaded incorrectly.

* Raise your feed dogs if your machine has this feature.

* When you start to sew a seam, hold on to the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting hung up in your machine.

I hope this help you.

Try re-threading the machine. Also, when you put the thread trough the clear plastic part on the top left at the back, swish it back and forth a couple times before bringing it all the way through. It is a little tip someone told me and seems to work wonders.
