SOURCE: skip stitch

The three most obvious causes (other than that of the machine possibly being slightly out of time) are:

1) Too small of a needle size - increase the size.

2) A needle that has a flaw / defect - change the needle.

3) Needle not inserted correctly, either not pushed all the way up into the needle bar, or not installed facing the correct place. On this machine, the small "scarf" in the needle (an indent just above the eye) shouldface the right side of the machine.

SOURCE: Skipping stitches while zig-zagging

If you have put a new needle in then the chances are the machine has gone out of time, you can either take it in to the repair shop or you can contact me and I will attach timing instructions drivewithken@blueyonder.co.uk

SOURCE: my sewing machine will not sew it only makes holes

Assure the needle is threaded correctly.

Either its not properly threaded when you start to sew

OR the bobbin isn't correctly installed causing it not to catch the thread when sewing.

OR (possibly just with old machines) the tensioning needs to be adjusted.

It is difficult to say without seeing.
Hope this helps at least some. Good Luck!

Slant o matic 401g skipping stitches what is wrong


Make sure you are using a brand new needle. A damaged needle will frequently cause skipped stitches. (Changing the needle is the least expensive repair for machine problems!!!!)

There is a lot of information available on the internet.

Skipping stitches


Skipped stitches
1. A bent or dull needle
2. The wrong needle for your fabric
knit fabrics require a jersey or ballpoint tip. Most wovens do well with a universal tip, and specialty fibers, like leather or metallic, usually require specific needles.
3. Incorrect machine threading
4. Unbalanced needle thread tension
Start by making relatively small changes and run a test stitch to evaluate the impact. If you need to adjust the tension dial using woven cotton fabric with good quality all-purpose thread and a new needle
5.check the needle is inserted correctly. The needle needs to be pushed as far up the needle shaft as possible. It's easy to insert the needle half way, clamp it down and think it is inserted correctly.
the flat part of the needle should be positioned towards the back. If the needle is not inserted correctly, it will not be able to pull up the bobbin thread and will cause skipped stitches.
6. If the suggestions don't help then it is time for a tune-up.

My New Home skips stitches. I have cleaned it, changed needles, adjusted the tension and tried different bobbins .



Skipped stitches

1. The needle is not inserted correctly

Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)

2. The needle is damaged

replace with new needle

3. The wrong size needle is being used

Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric

4. The foot not attached correctly

Check & attach correctly

it's also possible that the machine could be slightly out of time

Skipping stitches and knotting up underneath.


Hello,
Here are a few things to try.

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

* When you start to sew a seam, hold 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 caught in your machine.



* Your fabric may require a different needle. Generally, heavier fabrics require larger needles and thinner fabrics, smaller needles. You may also need a larger needle if you’re sewing through many layers of fabric. And make sure to use a ballpoint needle for knit fabrics and a sharp needle for woven (or a universal needle for either). And make sure your needle is appropriate for the type of thread you’re using.


* Adjust the pressure of your pressure foot, it may be too light for your fabric.


* If your upper thread and bobbin threads are different types, try using the same thread for both. And use a good quality, brand name thread.



* Change your needle plate. Try switching to a needle plate with a smaller hole (a straight stitch needle plate).


Important Note: If you change your needle plate, check to make sure your needle aligns perfectly with this smaller hole before starting to sew. A misaligned needle could hit the plate and break, which could be dangerous. And make sure to change your needle plate back for zigzag and other wide stitches.

Hope this helps.

Whenever I zig zag my machine skips stitches.


Hello,
Try these solutions.

* Re-thread your needle
It may be threaded incorrectly (backwards).

* Reinsert your needle
Make sure it goes all the way into the holder and that it’s positioned correctly – usually with the
flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your machine’s manual to be sure.

*Change your needle
Your needle may be blunt, bent, or otherwise damaged.

*Your fabric may require a different needle. Generally, heavier fabrics require larger needles and
thinner fabrics, smaller needles. You may also need a larger needle if
you’re sewing through many layers of fabric. And make sure to use a ballpoint needle for knit fabrics and a sharp needle for wovens (or a universal needle for either).
And make sure your needle is appropriate for the type of thread you’re using.

* Adjust the pressure of your pressure foot
It may be too light for your fabric.

* Change your thread
If your upper thread and bobbin threads are different types, try using the same thread for
both. And use a good quality, brand name thread.

* Adjust your thread tension
It may be too tight or too loose.

* Re-thread your machine
It may be threaded incorrectly.

* Change your needle plate
Try switching to a needle plate with a smaller hole (a straight stitch needle plate).

Important: If you change your needle plate, check to make sure your needle aligns perfectly with
this smaller hole before starting to sew. A misaligned needle could hit the plate and break, which
could be dangerous. And make sure to change your needle plate back for zigzag and other wide
stitches.
I hope this helps you.
